The documentary followed their road to becoming one of the finest tennis players ever seen. Also, their father and other coaches actively participated in the documentary, and discussed how they helped develop the legendary sisters.

However, in that sports documentary, there was a moment when the seven-time Grand Slam champion talked about her father’s unorthodox training methods. The 42-year-old said, “I remember he said boxers has the best feet, and we needed a faster foot so…”

Further, even Williams’ sister’s childhood coach shared his take on training with boxers. Rick Macci added that “We even had a professional boxer in a sand pit going every day. If they didn’t move, they would get popped.”
