"I was so intense on the court and wanted to be perfect at every moment, and obviously that’s not possible. So, just take a deep breath and just relax, and, you know, I think that would have helped me out a little bit."
"I think the journey was really amazing, but I think I was so young when I started on the circuit and became a professional player, I don’t know if it changed me or shaped me,” Williams added. “Now I’m trying to figure it out, and I talked about this in the documentary: you have to figure out who you really are away from the cameras, because I was on the cameras 24/7 for 27 years."
