True, Venus is a daddy's girl. She respects him very much and loves hearing his voice when she plays on court. Richard is more affectionate, always tells her he loves her, and gives plenty of hugs and kisses. They both openly express their care for eachother and that seems to make the two of them closer. I don't think I've ever seen Oracene hug Venus or Serena in public, not even after a big win. That's not to say that she doesn't love them, but she seem to have bigger problem than Richard expressing that love, especially in public. In fact, Venus and Serena normally have to ask for a hug which is strange because I've never had to ask my mother for a hug, in fact she hugs me as soon as she sees me. Because of the closer bond Venus seems to have with Richard, I would say his presence and words seem to affect her more deeply.
