"Welcome to no challenges remaining. I've been rothenburg. I'm in Florida where we are reaching the business end of the Miami open with a great women's final book between Naomi Osaka and tech on the women's side. The most recent pre ash party number one versus the incoming number one post dash party. It also Carlos alcaraz is continuing to dazzle on the men's side. But on this episode, I want to bring you conversation a bit away from the tour to put a cap on one of the side plots of the past few months in tennis, which is the Oscar campaign led by Venus and Serena Williams for king Richard, the movie about the origins of the Williams family as tennis world leaders for which Will Smith did, in fact, on Sunday win the Oscar for best actor. For this, I went up half an hour north or so the man may open to book a tone and the Rick Macy tennis academy, which is a major setting of the movie to talk to Rick Macy himself. Rick's role in the Williams channel is development has often been overlooked in their retelling of the legend. So to say he's been gratified by the movie and the chance it is provided to him to reunite with Williams as an understatement for sure. So you probably noticed there was a recent federal law announced that if you have a podcast, you are required to discuss Will Smith slapping Chris Rock at the Oscars. So we will discuss that a bit as well. Also, one note, although it's a bit of audio interference, I hope you enjoy the moment where the new national anthem of the Macy academy starts playing over the loudspeakers as much as I did. Here's my conversation with Rick. Fire away. If you got the questions, I got the answers. All right. Rick Macy, thank you for having me here at your academy here in Boca. Being here, seeing all the changes you're making and all the photos that are now going up in the poster from the movie and stuff like that. I was here once I've mentioned briefly like maybe three or four years ago. How much is this movie changed your business and your life and being on the big screen like this in this big blockbuster Oscar nominated Oscar winning now movie? Well, there's definitely been an uptick, you know? There's been, you know, a few more phone calls, a few more people stopping by, wanting to photograph, a lot of adults just want to lessen with me, you know, just in a photograph or whatever. But I've always been busy. I was teaching 50 hours a week before the movie and I've always been one of the busiest guys in the country, even prior to the movie. But I think the movie really told the true story of how, you know, I took a chance, a big chance, put a lot of money into this thing, and it showed how much I cared. I showed Venus Serena Mike moan daughters and Richard was my best friend. So the movie was amazing, but I think people outside of tennis. A lot of people in tennis know that I coach Venus Serena for four years. I took Venus to make her debut. But I think hundreds of millions of people around the world, and this was 30 years ago. Some people weren't even alive. So I think, you know, that alone, people look at it differently. But no, it's made, it's made a big difference with stuff off the court. And what I mean by that, I've been contacted by a couple people in Hollywood about a reality TV show. I think they've seen Rick Macy in a different light. They never knew who I was. They obviously seen everybody up coached and they kind of know what I do. The way John bernthal played me and the way I coach and stuff like that. So that's on second base with a few situations. Documentary about my life. I mean, that's kind of in the works. Some motivational children, picture books. So there's some other things other than all roads leading back to the academy, because obviously there's going to be more people come and stuff like that. That's always going to happen. But at the end of the day, I still want to be on the court 7 days a week, doing what I do. And as I tell everybody, you know, I don't just change grips. I change lives. That's kind of what I want to do. And I always keep my eye on the ball. So things have changed a little bit around me, but at the end of the day, I'm still going to do exactly what I've been doing. I know reading reading your book may seem magic. I think you had some disappointment maybe sometimes that the story of Venus and Serena often got kind of condensed into just being going from confident to center court, right? And skipping over a lot of work they did with a few coaches. Foremost yourself, outside of their family, the journey to Florida and having that be such a big part of the king Richard story, that chapter of their lives. How gratifying was that for you to have this place and your work spotlit like that. And in the origin story of the superhero origin story that we get in this movie. Yeah, no, it was big time because it's the truth, you know what I mean? And I think whenever it's about the truth,.

Will Smith Issues Apology to Chris Rock

"Now here's what Will Smith just now put out in a statement. And he finally has apologized to Chris Rock, and that should have been the first words out of his mouth when he won his Academy Award last night. Violence in all of its forms is poisonous and destructive. My behavior at last night's Academy Award was unacceptable and inexcusable. Jokes at my expense are part of the job, but a joke about Jada's medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally. I would like to publicly apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line, and I was wrong. I am embarrassed in my actions were not indicative of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and kindness. I would also like to apologize to the academy, the producers of the show, and all the attendees and everyone watching around the world. I would like to apologize to the Williams family, and my king Richard family. I deeply regret that my behavior has stained what has been and otherwise gorgeous journey for all of us. I am a work in progress, sincerely will.

"Person to be around. And just like having it not be entirely from his perspective, I think that ingenuity Alice performance is really outstanding. And I just found myself Paul to the screen whenever she's on to the point where I was thinking, man, there is another movie to be made that is focused on her, where he Will Smith is going for best supporting actor. And their mother who is also a hard charging person also has athletic gifts, also trains them, also has lots and lots of opinions about athletic greatness and work life balance. And then has to kind of do everything that the old backwards and high heels, she has to do all that work of raising these kids with this guy muddying all the waters and stirring everything up and being a giant pain in the rear end. If anything, I would have taken kind of like I used to would have taken less king Richard, but I would have watched queen brandy all day long. I was just thinking queen brandy because, yeah, Aisha already decided that scene where she calls him out and she's almost basically the only person who can really do that in the whole movie that really brings him down a level and really humbles him for a second, at least a second. It's actually really impressive and I also would happily cheer her on. It should, you know, they mount a support best supporting actress campaign for her. I mean, yeah, every time that it was clear, she was about to say something. The audience was practically leaning forward. You know, I mean, they were just like ready. She's fantastic in it. And she makes the whole dynamic very believable between the two of them. Yeah, I just wish why couldn't it have been both of them? Why couldn't it have been a story about both of their struggles this whole family and the sacrifices they make as much as I loved that scene where she undercuts him?.

"Feel the hand of the Williams family they are credited as producers? They were clearly involved in the way this story was told. I think that for me, that's part of why it actually ended up working in terms of having the focus beyond the father. Last year, I executive produced a podcast about Tiger Woods. And, you know, you can't help but think of these two fathers if you know their stories, right? These fathers who basically had these plans for their children to break through in white sports specifically that they were working them from the moment they were born towards this goal and they're both really interesting characters in different ways. What I know of Tiger Woods father from working on that show, I would say was part of what I couldn't get out of the back of my head in a way that justified this movie to me because I think you do see the father making decisions that don't make sense to everyone, and that's not to say that every decision he makes is absolutely the right one. But that he is at least making some decisions within awareness of his status in the world and what's will happen with his daughters when they start to access certain things in their success. And for me, remembering how Richard Williams was covered at the time and also thinking about how Tiger Woods father was talked about. I could see how these two incredible women Venus and Serena would actually have a desire to say like, hey, he didn't get the respect he deserved, and we wouldn't have done this without him and we want to paint this in a slightly different light even. We're not painting him as an angel, but you didn't understand his choices then, and we want to give you a sense of some of the choices he was making and why he was making them through this story. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I kept thinking, Tiger Woods, dad was also kind of at the back of my mind, but I also kept thinking of Joe Jackson and in the early 90s there was a mini series that had I think most of the families involvement that the Jackson family called the Jackson American Dream. And that show in a way, it's so interesting to watch and compare to this because that also shows sort of the warts and all in a way. It's briefly shows the phlegm during that he did. It also shows him beating his kids, although this was a different time. And so it's interesting to see the way that show treats it as he beat his kids, but look how they became the superstar. And while obviously, you know, Richard Williams, there's no sense that he actually disciplined his children in that way..

"And rising up. And this movie also has the issue of this sort of edible complex in that it's also focusing so much on Richard and it's called king Richard. And to me, I couldn't get over that hump. To me, it wasn't the interesting story. And it felt very insular to their I wanted to see the story about what it was like for these girls to be that young and feel that pressure. And we get hints of that for so many years, their physicality was compared to animals. They were not the quintessential quote unquote beauties, like these other female tennis stars. They were called aggressive. And I would have loved to see more of that and less of king Richard to be honest. I don't think the focus is where it should be. And it just did not work for me in that regard. Yeah, I hear that. I think I came out of this movie a little bit more with daisy and Monica. But really went into it. As you said, Aisha, this movie had a huge hump to get over. And I think just the question is, whether that hump was steep enough in your individual case. And for me, I really did not expect to like this movie. I have really struggled with biopics as we've discussed on this show. I was really put off by just on paper, this being the story of the man at the center of these two dominant female athletes lives. But I think the movie for what it is really pulls it off well. I think it is a really effectively made movie. I think it does a nice job balancing some really strong family drama with the beats of a sports movie. I did find it enormously kind of crowd pleasing and crowd pleasing is a double edged sword. Like it can mean really formulaic, but it also is enjoyable..

"One NA member Here with Aisha and me today is daisy Rosario, she's an executive producer at stitcher with the show's celebrity book club with Chelsea Devante. It's in its first season right now. Hey, daisy. Hey, how's it going? It's going great. Great to have you. Also joining us is Monica Castillo. She's an arts and culture reporter with Colorado public radio. Welcome back Monica. Glad to be here. Glad to have you. King Richard is an unusual sports biopic in that it's not focused on Venus or Serena Williams so much as the overbearing man who drew up a 78 page plan for their success, Richard Williams basically raised his daughters from birth with the idea that they would grow up to be tennis champions, though he and his wife, brandy, played by ingenue Ellis, have children from other relationships, together the Williams trained Venus and Serena on abandoned tennis courts in their hometown of Compton, while also looking for coaching help from an overwhelmingly white tennis world. The movie follows the family through Venus and Serena Williams early days from their training as kids through Venus national breakthrough at a competitive tournament when she was 14. We see Venus played by Sinai Sydney, as she develops her killer instinct and we see Serena played by Demi singleton as she first begins to escape her sister's long shadow. But mostly we see Will Smith as Richard Williams, a stubborn flawed ambitious, hard charging father figure whose plans succeed wildly sometimes it would seem in spite of himself. The film was directed by Ronaldo Marcus green and written by Zach balin and it's both in theaters and streaming on HBO Max daisy. I'm going to start with you. What did you think of king Richard? I ended up really liking it, which I say in that tone because that's not what I was expecting when I sat down. In part for kind of everything that you have explained in the intro, you know, I'm a huge fan of the Williams sisters. They're definitely was a question in my mind of like, okay, why are we telling it this way? You know, I'll give it the benefit of the doubt, let's see. There are also details about Will Smith's performance that I kind of had to get used to, I guess, this is how I'll put it in the start, but I would say it's kind of a movie that once I settled into it, then I really enjoyed it. But the cast, you know, I know that this is like definitely Will Smith Oscar bait and I'm sure we'll talk a lot about that too, but the rest of the cast is so charming in particular, the girls who play not just Venus and Serena, but the rest of the Williams daughters. I mean, those parts of the movie just really made me emotional, you know? And so I really, really ended up enjoying it. And I also saw it with an audience that was into it, which was fun. This is probably the most raucous audience. I have been in a movie theater with since the pandemic. And so it was fun to be in a theater full of people clapping and ooing and awing and having serious emotional reaction to the story of this family..

"There were several moments in the film that we had to do that, you know, with Venus and Richard on the court. Did it really happen on the court? No, did that conversation happen? Yes. Did it happen, you know, is that, you know, a lot of conversations and amalgamation of conversations? Absolutely. But it's the essence that's more important than the facts of how it happened. We know what went into those stories. And that we did have isha as a producer on the film. We had lingerie a price as a costumer on the film. We had, you know, we had real family members that could help to tell their story, and they were, you know, I just had to let them know we were making a movie, and they were cool. They grew up watching movies, they understand. They totally understood. I said, look, the movie has to ramp up in the second and third act. Like they were very aware of what we needed to do in order to make it cinematic that happened through conversations with obviously Zack Bayley who wrote a great script. You know, and my DP, Robert ellsworth, who, you know, who's also just a genius at what he does. Many conversations went into elevating those aspects of the script. I got even more excited about the movie when I saw that elsewhere. It was shooting it with you. So how did that happen? You know why did he want to be a part of this? Obviously, he is one of the greats. Yeah, so I have the fortunate I took my little first film monsters and men to Sundance in 2018. The summer before, the 2017 Sundance runs a director's lab. And I was invited to the director's lab. And at the director's lab, Robert ellsworth was one of the advisers that year. So was pin Martin who ended up being my editor as well. So I met them both. They are at the lab organically on my first film. Now, neither one of them ended up being my advisers at the lab and I was so kind of bummed out of that..

"So happy to be joined by Ronaldo Marcus green. Thank you for coming to the show, ray, how are you? I'm great, man. Thank you so much for having me. This is very exciting for me. So ray, this movie is making a lot of noise. People are very excited. I saw it before Telluride, but it blew up a Telluride. Obviously, Will Smith being at the center of it means it's going to be a big deal no matter what. But I'm curious from the very beginning, how do you become part of this story? Do you have to sell yourself and sell your vision to will and the Williams family? How do you get involved in becoming the helmer of king Richard? Probably a lot of other people being unavailable. And in the right place at the right time. No, I say that, you know, jokingly, look, you know, it's a combination of things, right? You know, about two years ago, it was one of those special Hollywood moments where I got slipped the script by king Richard by like four different people. Who weren't my agent? And I was like, what is this on the same day? And what is this project? And so, of course, I have to read it. I read it and I'm like, man, this is a dope script. And fast forward, I call my agent, like, hey, why didn't why didn't I get it? And he was like, look, we don't have the rights, the families are involved. And I was like, oh, okay, that makes a lot of sense. I wouldn't do a movie of this magnitude without the family's consent. I said, look, just make sure that my name is in the hat. When that day comes and sure enough, you know, fast forward about 6 months. I get a phone call from Tim white, one of the producers on the film, who asked if I was available. And I wasn't. I was literally on my way to make my sophomore film. And I was like, man, I've been waiting for this call. Finally, it comes down. And I'm off, and he said, look, we're going to go shoot the movie, you know, we'll catch you on the next one. I said, look, I know how this production thing works. If the date shift or something happens, let me know, sure enough that they shifted. I was in the final week of production of my sophomore movie, Joe bell with Mark Wahlberg. And I got a phone call and it's Warner Brothers saying, you know, would you like to meet on this project and which I did? It was a zoom because that's where I wasn't in Utah. And that from that meeting, I scored a meeting with will. So I finished production that week. Flew straight to LA, met with Tim the producer and then met with will. And I knew going into that meeting with will, I'm like, look, this is a dude from Philly..

"Of me, I mean, part of the appeal of the Serena venous story and part of me just yelling at you, I want her to get to 24 and 25 is because I like the amazing uplifting nature of it. And I think she's not getting there. Okay, thank you. Spoiler alert. So as a movie watcher and like someone who appreciates journalism and ideas, I think the answer is last dance, but as a fan and a person who likes to cry at these movies, I want the king Richard version, you know? Here's a question, Sean. How many movies get made anymore? That are about something that the three of us would like, but also my 16 year old daughter would like, but my 8 year old daughter back in the day also would have liked, but my 74 year old dad also would have liked. That is a short list. This movie, and why I think it's going to be bigger than I think people realize is this movie has an audience of all people and it's actually about something. It's not the fucking eternals. You know? It's like, there's actually something real here. And I just don't think they make movies like this anymore. I wish they did. These are the movies that we grew up with. Yeah, I mean, Amanda used the marketing phrase to JoJo, which is four quadrant. It speaks to men who speaks to women and speaks older people to speak to younger people, speaks across demographics, race, everything. It is a, it's a write down the middle movie. And it's hard to make right down the middle movies now, because also if they fail, people are like, shit, we gotta make another superhero movie. So let's cherish it. It also doesn't hate you over the head. You know, like there's some subtle stuff in here where obviously he has trouble with the gangs in the first 35 minutes of the movie. But as these kids get better, there's just a couple shuttle moments where the car comes by and they're checking on the girls. And that's something that happens. It happens with basketball it happens with tennis and.

"Friday night lights have forgot to mention because I think that was an important one too. That was basically a sports movie. Dragged out for 75 episodes or whatever, but did hit a lot of the same sports movie stuff. I just think a lot of stuff's been done at the same time. When you go backwards and you make movies about something that happened and 1995 or remember the Titans case, 1970 and there becomes a timelessness to that. I thought the way back was great. I really liked it. And I thought it twisted a couple of sports movie formula things against you where it's like they have the scene where they make the playoffs, which is just a great fundamental old school sports movie basketball scene. And then the movie doesn't end. And then we go off a cliff. Then he's out. He's out of here. Coach. Yeah, he's out, and he's crashing cars and getting beat up and he's in rehab and that last 20 minutes is not a sports movie. But that's tough. Yeah, but it's also really good. Bill went in like 20 years when Jim Miller writes the unauthorized slash authorized biography of Bill Simmons. Do you think there will be a chapter called the men who loved sports movies killed sports movies? Because 30 for 30, I think you're right, kind of like, maybe sort of did it in a little bit. I think people's expectations for what should be in these stories. King Richard is one of the first true life dramatized sports movies in a while that I think actually works and people are excited about. I wonder if this is something that you have to invent a world like warrior or the way back in order to get these movies made for the most part. Well, let's ask Amanda who loves I think Serena as much as anybody. Even defended her after the Osaka match, which was I still have a lot of problems with. It was nobody's best moment, except for the family's best moments. You know, you've defended her a few times, where it's like, this is a true fan. This is what her to get to 24. I just need it. I want Margaret court off the leaderboard, Serena. I love you. I believe in you. Let's just buckle down and do this. All right, Amanda has just laid out why she's the perfect person to answer this question..

"And so that actually was. But that was the worst part of the whole Venus Serena thing is the few years when they were kind of even. And they would play each other constantly and it never felt like either of them was going a 100% all out. Remember, people were talking about these matches arranged. Right, right. They decided to win beforehand. The dynamic. It was just not fun to watch them play each other. It wasn't. It really wasn't. There was something missing from it, and I think at some point that became part of the narrative with them is like this isn't these people are dominant. It's not fun to watch them play each other. What happened to women's tennis? This was a real angle, but it was because they were both so great. One other thing I wanted to note about this movie and part of the reason that I think it looks so good is Ronaldo Marcus green really good young director, but it's shop at Robert elswit, who is PTA's longtime cinematographer due to works with the Gilroy brothers on a lot of his on a lot of their movies. This is like an OG hardcore decorated cinematographer shooting sports. And that's the other thing is a lot of sports movies are not necessarily the most well funded movies. They don't necessarily have the hugest movie stars anymore. They don't get people like Elsa shooting them. And I think, you know, especially when you see Serena and Venus getting into more upper echelons of tournaments and then, of course, that final showcase sequence, that final match at the end of the end of the movie. It just looks amazing. It looks legitimately really, really good for a movie like this and it feels like something that is kind of slipping between our fingers with sports movies these days. I was glad that shit on Sicario a little bit in the last 15 minutes. Never really liked her. The game's been shit. It was smart. She froze the kid out, but that's so agonizing and it keeps going and going. My biggest flaw with this movie was actually the last 20 minutes because I thought the final Tennessee was too long. And I actually, I think when you're talking about it compared to the other great sports movie scenes. That movie, the lead up to the ten minute break, and then what happens after? It's just it just felt too long to me. And I think if you're comparing it to the other great sports movies that we've had, that scene has to be lights out, that has to be a scene I want to rewatch over and over again. And I didn't feel like that totally got there. I actually would have played up the scene when she wins the first.

"Sean fantasy. I'm Amanda dobbins. And this is the big picture, a conversation show about king Richard Will Smith. And sports movies. Later in today's episode, you can hear a conversation I had with king Richard director Ronaldo Marcus green. I hope you'll stick around for that. But first, let's talk about king Richard and sports movies with the erstwhile sports guy himself Bill Simmons Bill. Welcome back to the show. Good to see both of you as always. Let's start with king Richard. Huge movie. BS you saw it this week in theaters, many of you saw a couple of weeks ago. It's obviously been touted as an Oscar contender for a couple of months now. Will Smith right at the center of the frame starring as Richard Williams, father of Venus and Serena, the movie essentially tracks him raising them in Compton in the 1990s along with her mother or scene in their sisters. Bill I'll start with you. What do you think of king Richard? Incredibly well acted. Yeah. Really manipulative. I was in, I was in the whole time. My big takeaway was that I kind of had forgotten how incredible the Williams sisters story is. And, you know, we did a 9 for 9 documentary about them in 2013 called Venus versus that hit a little bit, but it was only an hour. It didn't really go into it. I think they've been in our lives for so long that the genesis of it, I just kind of forgotten. And, you know, this was manipulated by the media in a lot of ways, but the perception of Richard Williams in the 90s was that he was a lunatic dad, and it was the era of the lunatic dads and we saw it in tennis and all these other sports and was the first time people really started writing about it and there were bad ones and, you know, he just seemed like kind of a Mimi, me kind of dad and what you realize in this movie is that there was a lot more to it, which is the best kind of movies or documentaries about real-life stuff are the ones that kind of make you rethink what you thought about stuff and why you thought the certain ways.

"To Richard and Betty's oldest daughter, Sabrina, now age 37, the marriage was stormy and volatile. It ended when Richard filed a notice of dissolution on March 22nd, 1973. A few years later, Richard met a college educated Los Angeles nurse, or same price, who had three daughters from her previous relationship. Venus was born to orison and Richard in 1980, Serena was born barely a year later. As he told a dumbstruck Matt Lauer on NBC's Today Show, in 1999, I went to my wife and said, we have to make two more kids, and she didn't want to do it. So I used to take her out on dates and I'd hide her birth control pills. That's how Venus came. With Serena, what I do with my wife is when I take her out and make sure that she had her birth control pills. I tell my buddy, you know we're from the ghetto, right? Just act like you're the worst crip and take her purse. And then I'd calm her down. And that's how Serena came. The story, even if it were believable, right stronger time doesn't make much sense, Richard Orson already had three young daughters at the time. If Richard were so eager to raise a tennis star, what was wrong with Andrea, who was only a year old when Venus was conceived. But Richard has Don king's master publicity, the more outrageous the better. If someone punches holes in your story at about your tail, just get them another one. It talks about some things that Richard does get right in terms of his view of the few businesses that store, for example, then transitions back, Justin Richard starts to sound like he's within a lab of sanity and is playing the world for a fool. He says that the straight face that his father in law was once the CEO of General Motors. My father did work for GM in Michigan and miss orient Williams with an uneasy chuckle, but it was on assembly line. You should know by now to take Richard with a grain of salt. And John writes, it's not as though Richard's only bizarre when he's in public and the cameras are on. Beyond his on again offering a relationship with the truth, he has an ugly habit of making virulent anti semitic remarks. He's claimed, for example, if he could have afforded to raise his family in a more obscure neighborhood, the chose to settle and Compton because he wanted to give the Jews who he asserts were buying all the homes in the area of little competition. He also in claims he has an employee whose job it is to collect money from the Jews. He eagerly and unapologetically tells of giving his daughter's ass whippings when disobeyed him. He suggested that Lindsay Davenport be taken to the junkyard, and that little Martina Hingis is a crybaby. Even the alkali messages on his answering machine are newsworthy. One message several years ago said, there are those that ask what I think of intermarriage. Anyone that's marrying outside of their this race that's black should be hung by their next sundown, please leave a message. Her most of 2000 callers to Richard cell phone received this confounding reading. I will be going through some tough times in next month. So my best friends and acquaintances will have the opportunity to judge me. I hope you will judge according to my acts in my deeds and my heart. Richard Williams. Apparently, his penchant for telling tall tales is nothing new. Sabrina de ville, Richard's oldest daughter from his first marriage says that far back as she can remember, her father drew little distinction between fact and fiction. He was always telling us that he studied law at Yale. He went to UCLA. He played for the Lakers. Recalls DeVille, now 37, who claims houses in Southern California and is pursuing a second bachelor's degree. Imagine being a little girl telling your Friends your father play for the Lakers and then having their fathers tell you that it's not true. That broke my heart. Richard, I don't call him my dad. It's a manipulator. He likes to think that he can make people believe what he wants them to. Sabrina says that when her father left her now to see his mother, Betty, he also banned in the family. Remember Richard moved on to start new life with orsan, Betty were two jobs to support the family. And you have the household still require public assistance. In Richard absence, two of his sons spent time in prison in California, according to California Department of Corrections. Records, Richard junior received a 32 month sentence for a firearm defense and ronner Williams received a 68 month sentence for second degree robbery. Sabrina claims another sibling lived briefly in a homeless shelter. Sabrina said she's gotten over her anger for her father, but wonders whether Venus and Serena would have been so successful had Richard not been an absentee dad for his first family. The bottom line is that he left us Sabrina says Venus and Serena know they walked right over our backs. All that money Richard should have been sent to us. My mother had to work for that. Indirectly, they are where they are because of my other sacrifices. Rich's conduct with the second family is not being either. Rick Macy recalls an incident when Richard angrily accused Venus and Serena, then perhaps 14 and 12 of running away from the ball. To correct the problem, richer positioned each daughter three feet from the net on opposite sides of the court and told Macy to feed them short balls. Richard demanded one history, one sister hit the ball at the other's head. Richard said to the Richard said to the girls, I want you to take her eye out Macy recalls. They just whack balls at each other. According to Macy, after a few near misses, Venus pelted Serena in the chest, and Serena tried to stifle tears, Richard nodded approvingly. That's it. You recollect Richard saying, keep moving forward. I want your middle name to be forward. Richard has also been accused of spousal abuse. On February 7th, 1999, Oregon Williams went to Columbia hospital in West Palm Beach for treatment of three broken ribs. According to sheriff reports, asked you to sustain the injury or seen first told hospital workers that she ran into a door handle. Pressed by a deputy from the sheriff's office or a scene said, I know you know what happened, but I'm fearful for my daughter's careers. In a report filed with the domestic violence unit, the deputy wrote that he suspected orac seems assaulted by her husband or another family member. A sheriff's deputy asserts that the office followed up, leaving domestic violence pamphlets at the front door of the family's house. Russia claims that he was in Chicago assisting underprivileged children at the time of the incident. He let us he thought she had injured herself jet skiing, it was too embarrass to tell him. No charges were filed. As if she wished to comment on the alleged incident or seen responded, it happened. I can't deny that. I would like to deny that, but I can't because it's the truth, the report, the police report speaks for itself. It wasn't rich Norris first interaction with the local sheriff's office. Two years earlier, deputies received an emergency call that a current report came from orsen, who said she was being threatened with a gun. When authorities arrived, she told them the confident resolved. The police report states, I then talked to the suspect Richard Williams, and he told me he was playing around with a pellet pistol, and that orsini had thought he was going to shoot himself with it. Richard clan, he was merely acting on a screenplay, which he was trying to write and his wife and daughters had been confused. As he told the reporters, it looked so good, they thought it was real. But then John says, despite conduct the range of some bizarre deeply troubling, Richard is rarely accused of anything more than being a few games short of a set. Why? With Richard, the proof is in the proverbial pudding says Macy. Question his methods. Questions behavior in question is sanity, but the man has done twice, will count with tennis parents before him not been able to do..

"But Collins is there dick Braden is there. Obviously, Rick Macy's a real coach. And I've done a lot of research on Rick Macy for the book project I wrote about Monique Philip, who was involved with Macy also, and even seeing things like the little logo for his academy is what it looked like in the early 90s. I thought that was really cool. Sort of globe logo that they had there when I saw that I was like, that's impressive detail to get that logo, right? And even mentioning one of his players at the time, Tommy Ho, who was like a American junior stand out in the late 80s. The Tommy hoag has mentioned the movie. I think it's very offended to what the conversation is actually were. And Jennifer Capriati is also there. And I think maybe they sort of staged a bit so Jennifer and the Williams would have more overlap in the movie than they really did in real life. But that's there. And I think some bigger picture things too like the sort of racial dynamic I think of the Williams is being seen as outsiders intruding into a largely white sport, especially at the junior level when Venus shows up in the families with beating up on all these just largely dominating these almost entirely white fields of opposition. That ring very true to me and to at least what the feeling of that was. Not saying every punish you ever had at juniors was Caucasian, but at least to me, I think they captured that outsider vibe well. They did, but none of them thinking of it. Most of the time in the movie, which isn't too often, I think that kind of the racial issues are addressed. It's through something that Richard says, right? Like something that he sees or notices or like when he is in conversation with white characters in the movie. It's not like we see some kind of a direct racist thing set towards the sisters or no, I think you're talking about more over. You're talking about more overt mentions. I'm talking about things that I guess you want to call them subtle, but things like when they show up to tournament and everybody's white and dressed in fancy clothes. Those are strange visuals, those sorts of ways if showing them. Showing them there. And you know, there were black players in professional tennis, and some prominent ones, the early 90s, too, Xena garrison, Lori McNeil were two very prominent successful African American players who I don't think Kevin mentioned in this movie. But definitely the vibe of sort of that. And obviously, in the famous scene that Will Smith is mentioned in the interviews, Richard interrupting an interview where the white interviewer man is pushing her a bit about where her conference comes from and kind of challenging her and Richard swooping in and interrupting at that scene is recreated in the movie. Very expectedly. And there's tons of details, other details, I think tenants are really appreciate around just not just for carrio is in this movie as a second proponent and just like aranha like the styling of a Raja is so perfect. It just looks like the actress and the facially exactly like a rancher, but she has a little ball holder tucked in plastic bottle holder that she had in the back of her waist and her skirt, and that's there. And when I saw that, I was like, oh, that's cool. You got not only did you get the Williams details right, but you got the Sanchez vicario details right to. I really, really appreciate that. There are some things though for various reasons that I think the movie that struck me as movie getting kind of wrong or not quite getting done. Some of these are smaller cinematic choices. You know, things that are dramatized, like there's a scene where the Williams just show up and interrupt a practice between Pete Sampras and John McEnroe, which didn't happen from all accounts really exactly like that. But it's a way of dramatizing it and that's fine. But there are a couple other cinematic choices. I feel like that we're sort of threw me off and again, this is part of me being a very pretty rigorous strict viewer of this movie from having a lot of knowledge of the actual story more than 99.9% of viewers will. Some little things about like Rick may, his academy, like it wasn't as big at all as it was picture the movies pictures being this huge sprawling complex with like dozens of courts and every star in the world basically there. When really it was like, maybe 6 course, maybe 8, I think less than ten quarts there and it looked more like volatility. It looks like voluntary. Yeah. It looked like a big factory rather than the sort of relatively small court it was. And also there were a couple times in Rick Macy in the movie came off as being like anti publicity and like, oh, stop doing something interviews. I was like, Rick loves all the attention, constantly still, that's how we infamously pro attention. There are a couple of things in the development that I thought would just sort of confusing for viewers, where they talk about, we're not going to play junior tennis, but Venus has already played all these tournaments in the movie. I thought that was just a little bit like not clear to the viewers like to clarify. We're not going to play ITF juniors. It's basically what it means. The highest level juniors, the junior slams. Like I thought, as someone, I was thinking as I was watching this, I wouldn't totally understand what exactly they were talking about. And it's true. It's one thing that definitely needs addressing that this was one of Richard's big ideas. It really paid off for the women's is not playing junior tennis, and it's very unique, really the only other player who has avoided the juniors who became a relevant player or even like almost even like a top 50 player is having Osaka. Who also didn't play any ITF junior events. The other ones, everyone does it. And I just thought that from a tennis tennis literacy tennis clarity perspective, I thought that maybe could have been explained a little better. Well, I was actually surprised about how much of the junior tennis they did eventually show. With the under 12 comments. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. I mean, if you just leave aside the distinctions between ITF or under 12 or whatever. I think even the tennis follower who approximately knows the Williams story, as far as I know, will think that the sisters never played juniors at all. That's what most people that I talk to and about the Williams sisters day..

"So you know that is another side of nixon The relationship with his family which is often not captured in books about watergate or biographies of nixon So in what ways are we still living in the shadow of of watergate. By thank you can draw a direct line from woodgate to the various scandals of the nixon presidency. I think this obviously vietnam was very divisive. Time in american history and it really divided the country into you know the antiwar movement and The people who now describe themselves or sarah palin describe themselves as real americans real america and You know that dates back. That idea of real america as a political construct dates back to the nixon era. So i see this as a You know there's a direct link there. I mean many of the abuses that took place in the watergate. Era were repeated during the trump period The interference with the justice department for example is is is one example and nixon was appealing to the same kind of portion of the electorate that trump later appeal to So there definitely There's definitely a connection though. I think however in a trump nixon two very different people. Nixon had a much greater sense of american history. And was you know much more serious thinker than trump particularly on foreign policy. So in some ways you know Karl marx wrote once that history repeats itself. The first time has tragedy. The second time is false and I think you know that might be a political nixon and trump in some ways. So you have written the trilogy on the cold war The big turning points. And then now you've written on the turning point of watergate and the role that had an american history. Is there any future projects that you're eyeing turning points that might end up being a new book or a trilogy. Well it's hard to get as close up to a major decision maker as we can get to nixon ident- in it's hard to repeat that So certainly. I'm more interested in historical subjects than Topical ones. Because i think it takes forty or fifty years for all the materials to come out into right. You know what of cool to second draft of history. So i'm You know not interested in writing another book about donald trump that lots of books about being written about donald trump and They're all going to depend on second hand accounts rather than on firsthand accounts because no other president including donald trump is going to tape himself way. Nixon says that rules out. You know topical Current day topics as a subject for book I can see myself writing a book about you know. Some other historical book preps about the entire cold war Rather than just an episode in the code will great. Well michael dobbs. The book is called cancer. Nixon and watergate an american tragedy. It came out in may of this year. So it's still relatively hot off the presses. But mr dobbs thank you so much for being on our show and sharing your insights about this very important moment in american history. Well thank you so much enjoyed your show and It's been a great conversation. Thanks.

"Satan thinking he was never on the point of pressing a nuclear button So nixon famously had a not a great relationship with the media and this was not too long after the kennedy years after president. Franklin roosevelt who The media they had a very good relationship and there were things that they actually hid from the american people about those president. So how did those relationships compare and how did it change so quickly as you said both. Fdr and john kennedy examples of presidents. Who on the whole had very good relationships with the media and were able to charm and manipulate the media and nixon certainly resented that because he wasn't a charismatic person he was rather awkward. He wanted to control everything And he'd had a very rocky relationship with the media and You know he takes it out on them. He thinks that he identifies the media with his political enemies and Is constantly thinking of reasons to Screw them bastards. In the media's he puts it Particularly once watergate gets going Very antagonistic relationship with the washington. Post where i used to work by the way And he's scheming with chuck colson Actually this is part of the first scene of the book. He scheming to drive down the price of the washington post which has just gone public in. He wants to punish the washington post for its woodgate coverage so this goes up and down and his fairly sort of you know pretty much background noise. He's Throughout his presidency and particularly the period that i'm describing So you mentioned the washington post deep throat. During this time was leaking information to them deep throat becoming basically part of the american political lexicon so what did you learn about deep throat. Mark felt the fbi number two and his motivation for leaking information to the post. Right the phrase deep throat came from a pornographic movie that was popular at the time. Starring linda lovelace so when Bob woodward was investigating woodgate. He had a secret sauce. The identity of whom he refused to disclose even though even to his own editors so they christened him deep throat. You know the man who could never be named and many years later it turned out that deep throat was the deputy director of the fbi. Aman cooled mark felt who Had his own reasons for leaking to john lewis.

"Richard is as much as anything a portrait of a court of the ruler and his coaches. Who of course include henry kissinger chuck colson john dean Spiral near the vice president You know the whole gang of them and they're all different people in they interact with nixon in different ways. How would you characterize his relationship with henry kissinger and what would what was the impact of that relationship on watergate. Well it's interesting because kissing was nixon's national security adviser and they you know were a team but they also rivals because nixon suspected Largely correctly of kissinger playing a double game. of leaking to the press leaking to nixon's enemies and with the goal of making kissing jessica himself. Look more look smarter And being the architect of some of these Some of the big foreign policy initiatives including the opening to china A nixon didn't want kissinger to get all the credit. And when john lewis gave him the credit for some of these foreign policy initiatives. Nixon was furious so that was actually one of nixon's main motivations in installing this tape-recording system that he would be able to show when he came to write his memoirs that He had been the driver of from policy. Initiatives not henry kissinger kissinger for his part was very adept. flat era and psychic fant. He would play on nixon's vanity and tell nixon that he was the greatest president ever and that he this watergate thing would be forgotten in history and nixon would go down in history as a great foreign policy. President nixon liked that he liked to be flooded but at the same time he was in a pretty much aware of the game that kissinger was playing and The some would. I find hilarious moments on the tapes when nixon is running down kissinger and even one moment when the talking about going off to camp david for the weekend and dixon says we'll take kissinger along with us and then a couple of minutes later says no no. Henry's too much of a pain in the us. We won't take it so kissinger was disinvited. But you know that reflects this raw strange relationship between the two of them. That's probably one of the milder things that that's documented as far as nixon talking about somebody. Yeah he was certainly an equal opportunity. insult of people And he you know uses a lot of swear words and He typically refers to the media for example a sons of bitches bitches bastards son of a bitches you know just a typical right expression for nixon right now. You alluded to vice president. Spiro agnew People remember him as the first vice president to resign. What was their relationship like. And there was talk of agnew becoming president potentially with the watergate scandal so that play out for nixon well. Nixon often talked about agnew his best insurance policy against assassination and later against resignation because he calculated that wants people figured out that if they got rid of nixon they would get agnew That would Restrain them and so you know they sometimes He sometimes talks about his resignation. And then he his own resignation and then he says to one of his aides. You won't act you and the aide says of course we don't want to agnew and so that is always the reason for nixon himself to stay on. Now agnew himself was facing his own troubles during this period..
