‘He Knew How to Do It’: Serena Williams Reveals Why She and Venus Shared Their Story Through Their Father’s Eyes

As “King Richard,” the story of Serena and Venus Williams’ rise in the tennis world nears a nationwide release,

The question stands, “Why is the story told through the eyes of Serena and Venus’ father? Actress Amanda Seales was criticized for the question but Serena tells Entertainment Weekly, “I think telling it through my dad was the best way because he had the idea. He knew how to do it.”  Will Smith also talked about portraying the family patriarch saying, “He reminds me a lot of my father… ‘King Richard’ was just uniquely timed in my life. There was a comprehension of all of the different angles that I have now over 50, that I wouldn’t have been able to even conceive at 40.”
