Excellent documentary about 2 great American champions!!, 20 May 2013
Author: emmabettyesther from United States

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!!
