Isha Price's weight and V and Serena's Responsibility

Isha Price, the elder Williams sister, is morbidly obese. Do Serena and Williams, who are top class athletes, and promote being healthy women, have a responsibility to help her sister? are they wrong to sit by and let her get sick while they do nothing?
Thoughts?

Re: Isha Price's weight and V and Serena's Responsibility

i'm posing a serious question. if roger federer had a brother who was morbidly obese, I would ask the same thing. Don't they have some obligation towards helping her? she's surely going to suffer from high blood pressure, type two diabetes, heart disease.. she's not a healthy girl.

Re: Isha Price's weight and V and Serena's Responsibility

^^ She destroy the field with her punishing groundstrokes.

Isha like the sisters is an individual, living her life how she wants to. So many people tell the sisters how to live their lives...I think they'd be very slow to do the same to someone else.

Serena Williams

Re: Isha Price's weight and V and Serena's Responsibility

i understand that, but knowing what they do about health and fitness, shouldn't they say "hey isha, why don't walk with us in the morning?" she's not chub, she's seriously unhealthy.

Re: Isha Price's weight and V and Serena's Responsibility

Honestly I was thinking the same thing the whole tournament. How can you have TWO sister who are world class sport stars, and another sister who is skinny then be extremely over weight.

But still... being that overweight is as bad as being an alcholic in the health sense would you excuse a family member with a alcohol problem as living the way they want to?

Re: Isha Price's weight and V and Serena's Responsibility

if isha is the big one, then yes, she is that fat. her bmi would classify her as "morbidly obese" here in the US.

that's a great analogy. exactly, they're allowing her to essentially kill herself and neglect her health while they promote a healthy life style.
