Williams in a recent interview, spoke about her challenging adolescence as she compared her body and look with her elder sister, Venus Williams. Williams shared her feelings and said- “‘It wasn’t about her at all. Tennis players in general didn’t look like me. Especially the top players or anyone that ever won Grand Slams. Nothing like me. So it was, ‘Can I win looking like this? Can I perform looking like this?’”

However, revealing her half-sister Yetunde Price’s contribution, Williams said- “I was really struggling, and she’s [Yetunde] like, ‘You know, everyone is different. You’re not Venus, and you’re never going to be Venus. You’re never going to be as thin as her, and that’s okay. And you’re never going to be as tall as her, and that’s okay. Nothing is wrong with that. You have a beautiful body on your own. You have a beautiful face’. And that’s when I first started being more comfortable with who I was.”
