OAKLAND, CA. (BASN)The American Tennis world should be knocking on Richard Williams’s door. He has produced not one champion but two and he did it the hard way “STRAIGHT OUT OF COMPTON”. As Mr. Williams would say many times after a Williams sister victory.

The American Tennis Federation has not produced a consistent winner since Venus and Serena walked on the tennis courts 15 years ago, The Last non Williams to win a major was Jennifer Caperati in 2001. Caperati has since retired.

There should be a call to Mr. Williams asking him how he produced these two athletic women as my colleague Michael Lewis Ingram of BASN and the Batchelor Pad would say the huntress and the goddess.

Williams removed both of his daughters from the famous Florida Tennis Academy and taught these young women himself. He taught them that their will be times when it will get tough and seem unfair. He taught them to persevere through difficult times and concentrate on tennis. It has worked.

The William sisters have won the Wimbledon Tournament, the U.S. Open, the British Open and the Australian Open and they have won the Doubles Championship four times in multiple events.

Yet Mr. Richard Williams cannot get respect from the American Sports media as Herm Edwards stated many times YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME. It has become obvious the American Tennis Federation does not want to win

Witness what happen to the American Team in The 2010 Federation Cup the Americans did not take a Williams sister and they did not win a match.

The legacy will be written when these fine athletes retire how good they really were.
