Re: Richard Williams hugged Dr. Bartoli

After Marions' speech saying this is down to one man, and one man only, her dad, he broke down in tears and they hugged.

Very appreciative of each other.

Re: Richard Williams hugged Dr. Bartoli

It was a nice gesture by Richard.
I'm sure the one person who can understand how people have looked at Dr. Bartoli, it's Richard.

Yes. The things he did to get Marion there were unorthodox but they got her there so whose really to say they weren't right.

Re: Richard Williams hugged Dr. Bartoli

So true. I think Richard respects him you know, not to listen to all of federation's gibber gabber. From Marion's track record, I am already nervous for the rematch!!!

Re: Richard Williams hugged Dr. Bartoli

I remember them saying during the match when Serena played Marion at Nasdaq-100 2003 that Richard and Marion's father were friends. That probably explains why Richard wasn't up cheering as loudly for Venus like all the other matches.

Re: Richard Williams hugged Dr. Bartoli

I think Marion proved that her relationship with her dad is way better than it has often been said to be.

Indeed, this was a very touching moment showing what a class act the entire Williams family epitomize.

1. Venus Williams
2. Na Li
3. Serena Williams
4. Jelena Jankovic
5. Ai Sugiyama

Re: Richard Williams hugged Dr. Bartoli

Great moment
I think the Bartolis are really nice. Marion is great and hilarious - I love her.
I loved it how they were walking around the court BOTH with their trophies

What sort of 'unorthodox' methods did he do to Marion?
