King Richard is a very good movie.
It’s not about proverty, abuse, racism or trying to get out of prison.
It’s a story about a man who had a plan, that came to fruition.
I met him and his daughters in Compton on a small, out the way, tennis court on, Central and Alondra, next to Compton Airport.
I took my daughter, Shari Stamps was going to introduce her to tennis.
When we got there, two little girls around 6 or 7, were ballin.
So after I finished, I went to talk to him, because the little girls were exceptional.
He is an unforgettable person. In fact when I saw him, he looked like a wineo..😄. When he started to give the girls instruction I then realized he was, with them.
I walked over to him and acknowledged how phenomenal the girls were.
Trust me, he was a man with plans. He told me that day, his plan to get them to Wimbledon.
It’s funny how serendipity works. For a brief moment I was seeing future greatness before me.
Also my daughter Shari Stamps actually played tennis with Venus and Serena Williams. (Ps. She don’t remember it) 😄, but I’ll never forget
