The trailer for the new documentary about the Williams sisters, “Venus And Serena”, hit the web last week. The film explores the making of two of the greatest tennis players this country has ever seen.

“Venus and Serena takes an unfiltered look into the remarkable lives of the greatest sister-act professional tennis has ever seen,” reads the synopsis from the filmmaker, Magnolia Pictures. “In a sport where they were not welcomed, the indomitable Williams sisters faced the opposition with grace and courage not only breaking new ground for female and African American athletes everywhere, but dominating the women’s game for over a decade. The film tells the inspiring story of how these two women, against all odds, but with the help of visionary parents, made it to the top.”

The 99-minute film will hit movie theaters on May 10 but as of today it is available on demand. The film was directed by Maiken Baird and Michelle Major.

Both girls are playing this afternoon in Charleston. Serena faces Mallory Burdette and Venus immediately follows against Varvara Lepchenko.

It looks great! Should be interesting to hear their own take on the controversial events in their career such as the last time they played Native American Wells and their subsequent boycott.

I look forward to it.

MMT Says:

I would be shocked if they “reveal” anything about Indian Wells. I would be surprised if it’s even discussed by them on camera.
