He was a fixture at just about every one of his daughter’s games. So it was different that Richard Williams, father of famed tennis superstars Venus and Serena, was not in the stands during his daughter’s Wimbledon championships this past weekend. Well, news just surfaced that the 74-year-old had suffered a stroke.
According to Williams’ third wife, 37-year-old Lakeisha Williams, the patriarch of the Williams family is still recovering.
“His condition is fair; he’s up and walking around, but he’s not at 100 percent,” Lakeisha Williams said.
“He needs speech therapy, psychological therapy and physical therapy, but for now, he refused,” she said. “I’m trying to get him under control and relaxed so that when we come back from out of town we could try to get that going. But he doesn’t wish to be bothered with anybody.”
