On July 9th, we launched a petition for a new documentary on Serena and Venus Williams. Thank you to all of the supporters who signed our petition in support of a new documentary on Serena and Venus Williams. We were emboldened by your early and enthusiastic support.
Serena and Venus have again electrified the tennis circuit. July 7th, Serena added her 14th major win, 5th Wimbledon singles title, and 5th Wimbledon doubles title with Venus. There is little question regarding their impact on the game of tennis. They have inspired new fans and inspired up-and-coming stars on the tennis circuit. They are two of the greatest tennis players EVER! Their story should be told. Sign Team Fenom’s petition to encourage ESPN to produce a documentary film on sisters Serena and Venus Williams.
Some supporters questioned why a new documentary was necessary. We are aware that the Williams’ careers and personal lives have been documented. However, we believe that the recent health struggles of both Williams sisters including a chronic auto immune diagnosis for Venus have fundamentally reshaped their personal lives. Additionally, recent successes such as Serena’s 5th Wimbledon title and the duo’s 5th shared Wimbledon doubles title indicate their story deserves a fresh lens.
While we are suspending our petition given other major projects, we still hope for a documentary that tells an updated story on Serena and Venus.
