Venus Williams also spoke about how her father was a special person and also very influential in relation to the sport. “It’s special. And my dad is a special guy, he switched sports, you know, single-handedly, and it feels very special. She said.

They’ve also spoken out on numerous occasions about how much they wanted the script to reflect their lives, stories and experiences. Venus and her sister said they officially put their names in the film after being sure the person who her father was would not be misrepresented.

Richard William was the person primarily responsible for the meteoric rise of Venus and Serena in the world of tennis. So it’s only natural that the sisters wanted to confirm how their story was being portrayed before officially becoming part of the franchise.

“We want it to be authentic. You know, we hear a lot of what you know about Hollywood and how they twist and turn things. And yes, our dad was a complicated person, but he loved us and at its core… that’s what we wanted to get out there. And besides, if you stick together, this family really works in the foundation. we are sisters We still do things together. We still have fun together. And it was really important that we didn’t get lost.” Venus’ sister added.
