Williams' Fans I have a Question!

How many siblings do Serena & Venus have (obviously not counting each other and half-sisters) and what are they doing today?

I was wondering more specifically if you have insight, why only Serena and Venus played tennis? Or did all the other girls play as well and only these two specific girls showed promise?

They have three older sisters. Yetunde died almost two years ago

I think they all played tennis, but Venus and Serena were the two that had the passion for it the most, and were the best. I remember them saying Lynne played but wasn't very good.

Someone please correct me if I wrong, but I believe I read in Jon Wertheim's book "Venus Envy" that Richard has two kids from his first marriage, and one of them, Richard Williams Jr., is in prison.

they have several more siblings. There are around 10 in all between Oracene and Richard if I'm not mistaken.

However, they're estranged from most.

Google yields nothing on this. You might check the book.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

She is good at unscripted drama!!
Seriously though, I heard she had an engineering degree. But I am not sure she is still in that line of work.
She seems to follow her sisters in a lot of countries, I don't see any company tolerating that for 9-5 job.
