Venus and Serena Williams are two of the most loved tennis players of all time. The girls were lucky enough to find a supportive and determined father in the form of Richard Williams, who gave it his all to develop them into world-class athletes. Although he had little knowledge and resources for the same, he still provided his daughters with the best facilities and coaching possible. Now that the girls have proved themselves in front of the world, Richard is getting much-deserved attention. However, there are a few people who think he could have done better for girls.
Earl Woods fires shots at Richard Williams.
“I’ve never met Richard Williams and I don’t want to meet him. I don’t think much of the way he’s handling his daughters. He’s not allowed them to reach their full potential.” He said.
What did Woods have to say?
“All you have to do is listen to them. You can hear the girlish attitude and the girlish conduct. These girls are not on the road to maturity,” he added. Although there are differences in the way two fathers think, they both gave brilliant athletes to the world.
Not the first time Earl Woods attacked Venus and Serena Williams’ father.
Woods had criticized Richard Williams recently of enjoying the spotlight earned by his daughters while he himself claimed to stand back and let his son take all the glory.
Serena Williams makes a glorious return.
Williams teamed with Ons Jabeur in the Eastbourne International doubles. The pair won their opening matching in an entertaining evening.
