Williams sisters DVD available

Just noticed that there's been a DVD released (on 19/11/02) called "Raising Tennis Aces: The Williams Story". It's available from www.dc-dvd.co.uk for 16.75. I'm not interested, as I don't like these sports documentaries, but some of you might be. It's region 1, so if you live in Europe, make sure you dvd-player plays all regions, before buying it.

Well, they're about a year behind Anna Kournikova who's already brought out a fitness video! In fact Anna appears in several dvds, such as her cameo in Me, Myself and Irene, and I'm sure "Escape" must be on a dvd somewhere. The only other tennis dvd available that I know of is the Wimbledon history one. However, this year's Roland Garros magazine did include a DVD with it. There's hundreds of football dvds already available.

I don't know CC, there isn't really much detail on this DVD website that I mentioned. I can recommend the website, though, as they're always very reliable. Presumably some US shops/websites must be selling it too, since it is region 1.
Just a thought about tennis dvds, there's already a lot of tennis training videos available (most of them US produced). Surely DVD would be an ideal medium for this. Nowadays, dvds don't cost much more to produce than videos.

this must be the DVD they mentioned when the Williamses were on Oprah. I hope it's released in VHS format.

The VHS/DVD won't be available in America until January 2003.

Thanks for the info I am will wait until 2003. Maybe not so patiently but i'll wait. "Bluepastures" I don't think they are a year behind Anna, because everthing you mentioned about Anna and a DVD has been done by at least ten of thousands of musicians and from millions of movie actors.

I went there but I didn't see the dvd. Anyway I'll wait until they have it at Blockbuster or somewhere else and I'll get it. Thanks for letting us know about it.

Dawn Marie, I was just stating facts that she did have a dvd out much earlier. The reason why Kournikova released a fitness DVD doesn't have much to do with tennis. Thinking about it, it probably doesn't have a lot to do with fitness either
Rae, to find the Williams' on the www.dc-dvd.co.uk site, search for "tennis" by title, then you'll find it.
