Serena Williams believes legacy of 'King Richard' will stand the test of time

Former World No.1 Serena Williams has many achievements to be proud of, with one of the latest being the success of the biopic 'King Richard', which she believes will live on for a long time.

'King Richard' is based on the struggles endured by Richard Williams, the father of Serena and Venus Williams, as he attempts to guide his daughters early in their tennis careers. Already a winner of several Awards, including Best Actor at the Oscars (Richard Williams is portrayed by Will Smith), the movie has set a new precedent for sports biopics.

In an interview with Ellen, Serena Williams spoke on the dedication of the entire staff in producing the movie, and how accurately it portrayed her family.

"It takes a lot of work, and that is what I really loved about the movie," said the 23-time Grand Slam champion. "It was the fact that you know so much about us just as players and these holding up championships and holding up trophies. But there is so much more that goes into that. It’s every day. It’s hard work, it’s so much dedication from my parents, both my mom and my dad."

Furthermore, Williams stated she was proud of how everyone worked to ensure the movie's success, despite being shutdown by the pandemic, and believed the film would live on for a very long time.

"The film was amazing; it was so cool to see the whole process come together," added Williams. "Took a really long time, and it got shut down for covid. But I was so proud of everyone and how everything came together, and yeah, it was a wonderful moment. I think the film will live on for a really long time"
