Oracene Price questioned by French police

Paris - June 4, 2003

Oracene Price, mother and coach of tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams, was questioned by the Paris police for about 45 minutes following the crushing victory of Serena over Amelie Mauresmo in the Roland Garros quarter finals.

"This was just a routine investigation for possible improprieties in the competition," lead detective, Jaque Meoffe, informed the the media after the questioning.

The investigation stems from the complaints of some French fans, some whom are bookmakers and at least one competitior, possibly a losing quarter finalist, who believe that Price masterminded a plot to have her daughter, Serena, lose a close match in Rome to Mauresmo, in order to bring up the betting odds in the event that the two would met in competition in Paris.

"It has long been thought that Richard Williams was behind the match fixing of the two Williams daughters, but I belive it was Orecence behind the scenes all along," said one Frenchwoman with a great backhand, who asked to remain anonymous.

Price was unavalable for comment as her agent informed the media that she was on the phone with her stock broker and would be shopping the rest of the day at Versace's.

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "
