Most members here in GM agree that Richard Williams and Oracene Price are the most tennis parents by far. Being one of their children is the dream of all tennis players. What else can be a better sign of greatness than having those two as your mom and dad?

1. WILLIAMS, SERENA -- 302-59 (.837)
2. WILLIAMS, VENUS -- 390-90 (.813)

There you have it, ladies and gentlemen: concrete statistical proof that Serena and Venus are the greatest of all time. ;)

I don't think so.
Heidi & Peter Graf's offspring has 22 slams against Richard & Oracene's with only 11 ....

I don't know what Mr. Parche would say.
But after all he didn't know much about tennis. He even thought Graf wouldn't have regained the #1 spot without his help!! :lol: :lol: :lol:
Well, the court ruled that he was a lunatic .....

MY criteria are about numbers of slams. More slams is better than less slams. Maybe that is abitrary.
IF having LESS slam counts, Williams sisters are better than Graf of course.
It just depends ....

The Williamses seem like horrible parents to me. Their children obviously lacked a lot of love and attention that wasn't directed through a camera lense.

Yes but the Graf's didn't raise two children to reach #1 in the world. Which will probably never happen again.

Speaking out of ignorance as usual. It is quite obvious that parents and children share mutual love, care and devotion for each other. One of the main things I admire about them is the priority they place on family, way above tennis and anything else.

In all their endevors they have the love and full support of their whole family. Many have tried unsuccessfully to separate them but they are sticking with their parents through think or thin regardless of what the world thinks. Many people hate Richard because he defends them ferouciously but he and his wife are allways given credit for raising well rounded and great civilized human beings.

Therefore produce the facts to support your statement that they are horrible parents. Going by your statement Anna and Maria and many others lack parental love and attention because they love the camera. If this is all you can build your argument around then you need to elevate and expand your intellectual capacity because it is very, very limited.

Did Richard or Oracene physically abuse their daughters, like Jim Pierce? No. Did Richard or Oracene emotionally abuse their daughters, like Damir Dokic? No. Did Richard or Oracene ever do time in prison, like Peter Graf? No. Did Richard or Oracene drive their daughters to criminal acts of rebellion, like Stefano Capriati? No. If Richard and Oracene are "horrible" parents, what would you consider those people?
