Serena & Venus Williams Father Suffers Stroke, Memory Loss



Richard Williams, the father of tennis stars Venus and Serena, suffered a stroke just days before Serena's victory at Wimbledon, his wife has revealed. 

Mr Williams, 74, was released from hospital last week following the stroke but has been left with memory issues. His third wife, Lakeisha, 37, said that he was stable but 'not at 100 percent'. 

She said: “His condition is fair he’s up and walking around but he’s not at 100 per cent.

“He needs speech therapy, psychological therapy and physical therapy but for now he refused.

“His mind is thinking that they’re going to put him back in ‘prison,’ which is what he calls the hospital.”

Lakeisha, who married Richard in 2010 and has a three-year-old son, Dylan, with him, says her husband is not aware he has suffered a stroke.

She added: “His mind is telling him that since he was once in charge of his life, after what’s happened he’s not accepting it.

“To him he’s a normal person nothing happened to him.”
