They forget the part where the Williams sisters did play juniors and only stopped after compiling a combined record of like 100-3 and beat all the top girls their ages. Then they went on to play every match they could against top girls and even boys like Roddick whenever they could get a practice match.
By 12 both Williams sisters were veterans of all sorts of junior match play and then pulled out of the rankings game.
You can not train and magically start competing at 15-17 and go anywhere, it just will not work and is not what Richard Williams did.[/QUOTE]
Thanks for clearing all that up ..... again.
