Richard Williams and Oracene Price, both self-taught tennis players turned experts raised their earnest and humble girls with will of steel. Consider their backstory, which is now legendary folklore: Venus and Serena learned the sport on the broken glass strewn tennis courts of the rough and tumble city of Compton. Richard, inspired by seeing a woman earn $40,000 during a TV tennis match, was determined to raise his two little girls to be tennis champions. Well after the teenagers went pro, Richard and Oracene managed to keep their well-poised young women on a modest, down-to-earth path despite the white heat spotlight generated from being champions on an international stage. They encouraged Venus and Serena to cultivate interests outside the court. The result? Venus started EleVen, a women’s tennis apparel line, earned a B.A. in Business Administration from Indiana University in 2015 and runs V Starr, her interior design firm. While Serena, who once dabbled in acting and lives part-time in Paris, France is multilingual. Speaking French, Italian and Spanish, Serena wows tennis audiences in their native tongue when snagging international titles.
