Crunktastical - over 4 years
Presenting the only woman worth betting your last book of food stamps on in a toe-to-hoof battle with Momma Dee. Oracene Price, mother of tennis stars Venus and Serena Williams, was spotted watching Venus compete against Bethanie Mattek-Sands at the U.S. Open on Tuesday (August 28) in New York City. Luxurious, golden yaki blowing in the wind — rawr, muthafucka, rawr. Looking a lot like Roberta Flack, no? Venus advanced to the second round of the U.S. Open, a year after she dropped out of the season’s final major tournament because of Sjogren’s syndrome. Yahoo! Sports reports that when a reporter asked Serena on Saturday about the controversy surrounding her flawless execution of the Crip Walk after winning gold at the Olympics this month, she expertly brushed off the question by claiming she reads “zero press.” The shade of it all! View snapshots of La La Anthony and the two guys in her life, husband Carmelo and son Kiyan, cheering on Venus Fly Trap inside!

Her serve as good as there is, her grit as good as ever, Williams was dominant at the start and finish, beating Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland 6-1, 5-7, 6-2 to win a fifth championship at the All England Club and 14th major title overall, ending a two-year drought. "I just remember, I was on the couch and I didn't leave the whole day, for two days. I was just over it. I was praying, like, 'I can't take any more. I've endured enough. Let me be able to get through this,'" recalled Williams, a former No. 1 whose ranking slid to ...

Price's coaching has arguably been overshadowed by her role as mother, but as a coach she has been called underappreciated. Price is not a coach in a traditional sense (though she did learn tennis herself to help teach her daughters the technical aspects of the game) and is instead credited, along with Richard Williams, in keeping her daughters focused and disciplined and for helping to build a solid foundation of self-esteem and outside interests for her daughters.
