Richard Williams In North Carolina today

Richard Williams to Appear at N.C. A&T

(Greensboro, NC) - Richard Williams, champion tennis coach and father of Venus and Serena Williams, will host a tennis clinic at the N.C. A&T Tennis Complex on Tuesday, July 23.

Williams boldly predicted his two daughters would become tennis champions in their pre-teen years. Now 23 and 22, his two daughters are the top two ranked singles players in the world. They have combined for eight Grand Slam singles titles, including two of the three this year.

Richard Williams is visiting Greensboro to launch a new sports drink called SMASH, an Iso-Energy Drink. SMASH is primarily a water replacement drink that includes the tremendous benefits of a rapidly absorbable carbohydrate source. SMASH is a thirst quencher that provides for maximum revitalization and rejuvenation and is good for all individuals.

For more information on the Richard Williams visit, please contact Executive Director of the Hayes-Taylor Memorial YMCA, John Armstrong at (336) 272-2131, or Director of Marketing for the YMCA, Molly Vanderlinden at (336) 854-8410.

I live about 25 minutes from Greensboro but I didn't hear about this until this morning before I came to work. I should've taken a sick day . Maybe they will post some pictures or an interview on the website or in a local newspaper.

22 and 21, but its the thought that counts.

Just wondering, if Venus or Serena played while drinking this new beverage, would the headlines read "Venus and Serena playing while smashed"?

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
Françoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.

Too funny, TSequoia!

Thanks for the info, V.S.

I had been wondering about the health of Mr. Williams, so I am glad to hear he's out and about.

Thumbs up Very good news...

Very good news, indeed, that Richard Williams has apparently recovered from his recent illness and has hit the road again. This is good news, indeed.

Gooooooooo Richard

Well from his progress,I should say this SMASH does work.

This could make alot of money too, can you imagie Venus and Serena promoting SMASH in a commercial? Pretty soon, he will have all the WTA players drinking out of the palm of his hand.

Imagine.. one day the tennis world will be drinking this drink and all the while puting money in the Williams family pockets.
