This documentary shows that the Williams sisters have always been judged by a different standard than everyone else, except in terms of wins and losses. It is the Williams family against the world, and they like it that way.

They've made the sport more interesting, both as black athletes and as women...we left Venus and Serena inspired us to get out in the sun and get moving. And call our siblings.

It doesn't quite get inside their heads, but it's brimming with vigour - rather like the girls themselves.

They're perfect American drama queens. All that's missing is a last act.
