Arantxa Sanchez Vicario voices displeasure over how she was potrayed in King Richard

Former world No. 1 Arantxa Sanchez Vicario was a guest on Spanish radio program El Larguero and there she voiced some displeasure over how she was potrayed in King Richard. In one scene of the film, a 14-year-old Venus Williams was taking on Sanchez Vicario at the Bank of the West Classic.

In the scene, Williams was in complete control of the match as she led 6-2 3-1 before Sanchez Vicario took a bathroom break. After the bathroom break, Sanchez Vicario went on to win the match. "The moment they painted me as a very bad person was when I am losing 2-6 and 1-3 is totally incorrect.

I was in the lead, as far as I know," Sanchez Vicario was quoted as saying by Marca. "It is impossible that I would have left the court with 1-3 because you can never leave in even games, if anything I would have left in 2-3.

The bathroom break is limited. I would have been penalized if I had stayed longer. The thing is, that gives the importance to the film. There is no other way for the film to be relevant. "I have had a brilliant career, nobody gave me anything to achieve what I got and I don't understand the meaning of them taking that out.

I recommend it because it's an epic movie and it talks about effort. "

Sanchez Vicario: I knew Serena Williams would be better than Venus

After voicing her displeasure with how she was portrayed in King Richard, Sanchez Vicario added she has a good relationship with Richard Williams.

Also, Sanchez Vicario said she knew Serena would be the better of the two Williams sisters. "I have a good relationship with Richard Williams and when his two daughters were on the circuit everyone talked about Venus and I told to the father 'the one who is going to be really good and is going to earn more is going to be Serena.'

I saw them play and I knew that Serena was going to be better than Venus. I know both of them, I have faced them many times," Sanchez Vicaro added.
