Learn About The Net Worth And Career Of Richard Williams

As of 2022, the net worth of the father of Venus and Serena Willisan, Richard Williams, gets evaluated at 10 million dollars. 

His career began when he got tennis lessons from Old Whiskey and devised a plan to make his daughters shine in the sport. He planned day and nights, preparing an 85-page plan, and started giving lessons to Venus and Serena when they were four and a half.

Indeed, he was skeptical about the teaching of the tennis academy and preponed the training session to six am. 

Later, his efforts turned fruitful when they began winning grand slams, with Serena winning the US Open in 1999 and Venus beating Lindsay Davenport for the title of 2000 Wimbledon.

Behind the two girls, he was always watching from the stands, as he celebrated the hardest whenever they won.
