*Get ready fans of Serena and Venus Williams because we’re going to get an inside look at the journey of the tennis duo’s success in upcoming documentary, “Venus and Serena.”
According to News One, the film will give us a better perspective about how the ladies made it and how their foundation was laid.
“My parents told me I’d be No. 1 in the world,” Venus said in a clip of the film made by ABC News veterans Michelle Major and Maiken Baird. “I was brainwashed.”
That’s what all kids need, right?
In the documentary, the girls are seen early on, doing drills with their father, running and getting ‘brainwashed.’
“The film is a great lesson for parents,” Michelle said. “You can help your kids be the best they can be. I really, really want to have kids so that I can inspire them similarly. There was a lot of love. I feel that I had that advantage growing up too.”
Love appeared subjective in the case of their father. While he is widely known for his outbursts and hard exterior, the girls constantly defended their dad, while others questioned his overzealous approach.
“It was Richard who is the reason they won,” Major said. “He trained them unconventionally. The entire family would be on the court during their training for up to five hours a day. It was all to support Venus and Serena. I’m enraptured by the young footage of the girls and also that of Richard. You can’t take your eyes off of him because he is so determined.”
The film, which was made available on iTunes earlier this month, is scheduled to debut in theaters on May 10th.
