Serena Williams explains why on-court rivalry never affected relationship with Venus

Serena Williams and Venus Williams will go down as two all-time greats and their rivalry will always be remembered as one of the greatest the game has ever seen. On the court, the Williams sisters created one of the most notable rivalries in the history of the game.

Off the court, Serena and Venus have always been extremely tight and close to each other. "We still are extremely spiritual people and have a great base of faith, and we know that we have so much to look forward to," Serena Williams said on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, as quoted on Sportskeeda.

"We also know that at the end of the day, like, tennis lasts for 10-20 years, but family lasts forever. "Even when I'm playing my sister, I always think: 'Okay this is just for this moment, this is just for this day, and even if we're emotional about it for a couple of days later, she is always going to be my flesh and blood and nothing else is going to ever come between that.'

And so it's really important for us to feel that and why so much just kind of rolls off our shoulders, and we just go with it."

Serena Williams on Will Smith in the role of her father

The King Richard film has received many positive reviews.

In the film, renowned actor Smith plays the role of Richard Williams - Serena's father. "You know, it was, it definitely was (weird seeing Will Smith portray her father). I've gotten so used to it now, when I see him, I'm like, 'Hey Dad.'

But in the beginning it was definitely weird because it was just weird," Serena Williams said. "But he did such a great job of just becoming Richard Williams to a point where it was actually like I was looking at my Dad and remembering those moments when we were together and when we were younger. And it's really amazing, everything he did in that film."
