The biopic that has achieved a Oscar for best actor to Will Smith‘Williams method‘ (‘King Richard’) has two villains: one is Venus and Serena’s own father, the other is the Spanish tennis legend Arantxa Sánchez Vicario.
The third act of the film took us to the tournament field in Oakland. Specifically to showdown between Venus (Saniyya Sidney) and Vicar, played by Mexican tennis player Marcela Zacarías. The film narrates how, seeing herself losing to the debutante, the top seed takes a long break so that her rival loses concentration and thus wins.
“I won the game, but not as it seems in the movie”Vicar declared last night in an interview with The SER Chain Beam. The tennis player went on to narrate the endless inaccuracies which, according to her, appear in ‘The Williams method’ in order to give more interest to the confrontation:
«First of all, it is impossible for me to leave the court in a 3-1. You never go in pairs. In that case, I should have gone at 3-2. Then there is a limited time: when you go to the bathroom, there is a limited time. I would have been penalized if that was the case. But that makes the movie important, there’s no other way it’s relevant. Then I won 11 games in a row, that says it all. I ended up winning the singles and doubles tournament.”
Vicar vs Williams
Vicario states in the interview that has always had a good rivalry with the Williamsso that portrait of a bad, cunning rival has surprised him:
«That role of bad very bad is totally uncertain. I don’t understand. I have had a brilliant career and nobody has given me anything. I don’t understand the meaning of them taking that out right now.”
But she is not only upset by how she has been represented, but also by how Reinaldo Marcus Green’s film has been treated the problems with the law of another partner of his, Jennifer Capriati:
“Why have they done it this way, you would have to ask the Williams sisters. I don’t like what they said about Jennifer Capriati either. She had problems, but not like she appears in the movie. It is part of the argument that they invented. It wouldn’t stop being just another movie; that way they give it more curiosity and more relevance».
