Did Serena and Venus Williams like King Richard?

The Williams sisters are listed as executive producers on the movie having provided approval after an early viewing. 

While their father’s portrayal isn’t always a flattering one as he pushes them towards successful careers as tennis players, Serena feels the film got the balance right. 

“People have gotten the story wrong, or media have portrayed my dad in an untruthful light. We want to get this story right,” the younger Williams sister was quoted by Forbes late last year.

“I think it was a great opportunity to see how amazing African-American fathers are. A lot of Black men aren’t seen in that light. And a lot of people think that my dad was a different character.

“He wanted us to have fun first over anything. That’s the thing that I loved most.”
