You can see why Serena turned out to be the better player mentally. Venus was always the star in the family. Lil' Serena was so jealous

Both of them

I can imagine little Serena going home and "hurt" all Venus dolls

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

aw.. That is so cute.. Wish we could've seen Serena as well though..
It is so 'inspirational' their whole story.. I think it's really interesting.. Love to see videos like this.. wish I could see 6-year-old Sharapova hitting up against the wall in Rusisa

Re: World #1 9 time Grand Slam Champion with 5-time Wimbledon Champion playing at age

Wow, Venus was so good so early

Just shows what a great teacher Richard was to his girls. He moulded them into all-court players. Notice how he kept telling Venus to come forward. He didnt just want them to have the comfort blanket of hitting winners from the baseline.

Great vid, how shy Serena was. Nothing like today
