Serena Williams suffered the worst defeat of her career immediately after learning that her half-sister’s murderer had been released from the prison, Serena Williams said.
Serena Williams, 36, was browsing the internet ten minutes facing the British player Johanna Konta last month when she discovered that Robert Maxfield had been freed on parole.
Maxfield, he is a member of the Crips gang, had served 12 years of a 15 years sentence for killing Yetunde Price in a drive by shooting in Comptonm LA, in 2003. He was granted parole in March for good behavior.
She told Time magazine, nomamter what , my sister is not coming back for good behavior. Price was shot dead in Compton, LA. Her children 11, nine and five at the time.
Its unfair that she will never have an opportunity to hug me, Serena Williams said. And it was hard because all I think about is her kids, what they meant to me and how much I love them
“I would like to practice what I preach , and teach Olympia that as well, I wan to forgive , I have to get there, I will be there”
Serena Williams, who is continuing to find a balance with work and motherhood , also spoke of clashing with coach Patrick Mouratoflou over breastfeeding her only child.
It is absolutely hard to take from a guy, she explained , He is not a woman, he does not understand that connection, that the best time of the day for me was when I tires to feed her, I have spent my whole life making everyone happy, just servicing it seems like everyone, and this is something I wanted to do.
