Ever since Venus and Serena Williams started playing in tennis tournaments, they've provoked strong reactions - from awe and admiration to suspicion and resentment. They've been winning championships for over a decade, pushing the limits of longevity in such a demanding sport. How long can they last? In Venus & Serena, we gain unprecedented access into their lives during the most intimidating year of their career. Over the course of 2011, Venus grappled with an energy-sapping autoimmune disease while Serena battled back from a life-threatening pulmonary embolism. Neither Venus nor Serena let their adversities hold them back. They drew their greatest strength from each other. Written by
Excellent documentary about 2 great American champions!!
I love this documentary about these 2 extraordinary sisters and great American champions!! Even more impressive is that they are still going strong in 2013 and holding up the banner single handily for American tennis!
Kudos to Venus and Serena's extraordinary parents for instilling in them such self-belief and confidence! I hate when I watch tennis and I see tennis players looking up to their box for coaching or parents yelling out instructions. Venus and Serena were taught to believe in themselves and it shows in how they figure out to win even when they aren't playing their best tennis.
God bless these all-time greats, Venus and Serena, and God bless America!!
