For all the talk about what he says, why aren't more people acknowledging that he said from day 1 that "VENUS WOULD WIN"...People always dog him for his comments, but he got this one right.

In fairness, most of the TV commentators have lnog since conceded that Richard Williams knows a lot about tennis. As for him predicting Venus would win this year, I heard about that when Mary Jo Fernandez mentioned it. So it isn't going un-noted.

I think he's undignified, obnoxious, strange, and generally spot on with his tennis advice. I actually like him compared to most tennis fathers.

If I were Venus, I'd be listening VERY closely to his advice on how to deal with Marion.

I'd say he got lucky with that prediction, or something odd is going on.lol

Has he ever made such prediction before re one of his daughters winning a tourny/GS?

Yes, he has on several ocassions and he has been right sometimes as well. However, we are getting ahead of ourseves, Vee has not won as yet. Hell, who am I kidding? It's in the bag baby!!!

he has always been spot on,he predicted Serena winning Miami even if she was a set down.I remember on of the commentators asking him during the match with Henin and he said even if Serena is down a set he still believed she will win and he was right.He must be psychic because most of his predictions are correct.He predicted Venus winning and not Serena at the beginning of this tourney.

Venus has not won yet.

To Richard: A broken clock is right twice a day. No, seriously, though. He isn't always wrong in his tennis pronouncements.

Yes he has, and he also said that Serena was going to be the best of the sisters when Venus was winning all of those matches. People thought he was crazy but once again he was proven right.

Love him or hate him, the man knows his tennis.

He predicted Venus winning and not Serena at the beginning of this tourney.
He also knew Serena was injured from the start.

Richard is a damn psychic at times. He obviously knows his daughters more than people would like to admit.

Just as he knew that Venus was having problems with her wrist. He said he told them both to stay home and recuperate but they insisted on coming. .

I think that richard is a genuis! look what he's done! raised two AWESOME tennis champions! and he had absolutely NO TENNIS BACKGROUND! anyone who can do that is very respectable despite the comments he occasionally makes.

Did she win yet? Damn, I was sure I wasn't missing this final.
