On so many occasions we hear that tennis parents put too much pressure on their kids, behave like jerks, etc.
I think both Venus and Serena (and other sisters) are very lucky to have Oracene as their mother. The more I see her on TV (the way she reacts to different ponts, losses and wins), read her quotes, the more I'm sure of it. Neither Serena or Venus are my favourites and I have no stake in this post. I just wanted to say how much I respect Oracene. She is one of the best parents in tennis.
I agree. In fact I think I posted a thread with an almost identical title a few months ago. She's great and at risk of being slammed by Richard fans, I think a great many of her daughters' positive attributes they owe to their mother.
