Local Celebration of Williams’ Sisters
The Profit sisters are being hailed as possible successors to the Williams.
“Mary and Elizabeth have a chance because of the role their mother (Yvonne) plays in their training and helping the girls maintain their focus,” Richard
Williams, their primary coach, said. “The girls have the mental fortitude and the desire to keep pressing forward. That’s what it will take to propel them to the top in this sport.”
Despite having juvenile diabetes type 1, Elizabeth, 12, is ranked No. 2 in Southern California after three tournaments. Her match record is 12-2.
She made it to the finals of the 107th annual Southern California Junior Sectional Championships in the girls 12 age division out of 256 players. She complained of chest pains after completion of the first set and took a three-minute medical timeout plus a two-minute break. Her blood sugar had skyrocketed to 351. Though her competitive instinct compelled her to continue, her mother made her retire, unwilling to risk Elizabeth having a heart attack.
