Oracene Price Biography, Wikipedia, Career
Oracene Price is an American tennis coach.
She is best known for being both the mother and coach of Venus and Serena Williams, regarded among the best tennis players of all time.
Price’s coaching is arguably overlooked because of her role as a mother, however as a coach she’s been described as underappreciated.
She is the former wife of Richard Williams, whom she divorced in 2002. Her father was an automotive worker from the Mississippi Delta.
Price isn’t a coach in the typical manner (though she did study tennis herself in order to teach her daughters the technical aspects of the sport) and is rather recognized, alongside Richard Williams, in keeping her children disciplined and focused and helping them build the foundation of self-confidence and other interest for her daughters.
Venus and Serena’s “poise under pressure” is often credited to the self-belief instilled in them by their mother. “There’s no such thing as pressure,” says Price. “As black Americans, that’s all we’ve ever had. It’s life. So where’s the pressure?”
This method was accompanied by an attitude of respect, according to noted Tennis coach Nick Bollettieri, a respect which meant neither Price or Richard Williams raised their voices to their daughters.
Journalist Bonnie D. Ford has claimed that the long-term success exhibited by the Williams sisters is directly attributable to their parents and the way that Richard Williams and Price have been able to help them with their lives and careers.
Ford believes it’s especially impressive the fact that Price and her ex-husband continue to be in support despite their separation.
