“But I’m not surprised because that’s my dad. Like he was a businessman. And that’s what he was first. If you think about everything he’s done with myself and my sister, like he had to create something that hot people excited. Or else no one would have ever believe in him. Who would have believed these black girls from Compton can be tennis players, in modern day terms, he would have had to come up with a marketing plan, he would have had to come up with a solution, he would have to come up with finding people to invest. And he did all that. So it doesn’t really surprise me now that I’m doing the exact same thing.”
