While growing up, Lyndrea and her sisters played tennis but eventually, it narrowed down to them.
Lyndrea, along with late sister Yetunde and Isha, was out there picking up the balls for Serena and Venus, and sometimes Lydrea would skip a day or two.
According to Lyndrea, she was five at the time and didn’t want to go out in the rain as their father was like don’t miss a day, six days a week, rain or shine, go out and chase the dream.
Since she was just five, she could fit on the bed, so she hid under it. They also shared the reason behind the strong bond they share now, and that is they had each other from the beginning, and there was never a doubt.
There was always “This is going to happen” and never “Are they going to make it.” They revealed they became each other’s biggest supporters.
One of the executive producers of the movie "King Richard."
Isha is credited as an executive producer of the movie “King Richard,” a biographical drama film that depicts the life of her coach father, Richard Williams.
She never missed any days on set while working for the film.

According to them, the hardest part during the King Richard process was sharing their late sister Tunde’s memories. Serena said she cried every time Tunde’s character appeared on the screen.
Serena, “Actually, it was an accident.”
Serena, back in the days while she was pregnant with her baby, mistakenly shared her picture flaunting her baby bump in a yellow bathing suit that went viral.
Serena describes that nobody was supposed to see that picture. She explained the scenario that she was on vacation, taking time for herself and enjoying the moment.
She says that her habit is that time and again, she checks her status on social media and also clicks pictures every week to observe how far she has been going.
She wasn’t sharing it with anybody but had just been saving the pictures. She describes that if you accidentally press anything on social media, it will be all over.
Serena says that her mobile doesn’t usually ring that much, but at that moment, she had four missed calls, and when she received the call, she went like NO.
Nevertheless, the lady says it was a good moment though.
When asked about how the lady actually felt when she heard the news of her being pregnant, Serena shared she got the news just before two days of the Australian Open, which is noticed to be one of the greatest grand slams.
She revealed being nervous and wasn’t sure what to think and do. However, she did know what actually was important for her at that point in time and was focused on the Australian Open.
She went through deep thinking as she knows it’s dangerous in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. Nevertheless, she went to play the game and also won it.
She confronted that after knowing about her pregnancy, she did play that part of a game in a different way as she claims it wasn’t that easy, though.
Serena thinks of herself as fortunate as she didn’t go through any morning sickness.
Serena, despite being in that phase, had to pack all those numerous emotions that a pregnant lady feels in that phase into a bag and throw them away.
As she is a player, she didn’t have any extra time to deal with that extra emotions as no one knew she was carrying a little baby inside.
