When Serena Williams’ older sister was brutally murdered by gang members desperate to protect their turf, the loss proved devastating for the tennis legend. And, perhaps understandably, the champion has struggled to speak about her sister’s passing in public. But now, Williams has finally opened up about her personal heartbreak – and she has some pretty tough reasons for sharing her story, too.
For most people, Williams requires little introduction; her older half-sister, Yetunde Price, on the other hand, is perhaps a little less familiar to the public. Price was someone to whom Williams was once incredibly close, though. You see, as well as sharing a familial bond, the Michigan native also served as her younger sibling’s PA.
