Serena Williams Went Through ‘Dark Period In Life’ After Sister’s Murder

Reports say American tennis star Serena Williams has revealed that following her elder sister's murder, she went through a period of depression and needed counseling to get over the horrific incident.

"It was a dark period in my life. I went through so much depression. I never even talked about it to my mom," The Sun quoted Serena, as saying.

"No one knew I was in therapy, but I was. I was so close to Yetunde," she added.

Serena's sister, Yetunde, was a victim of a shooting on September 14, 2003 in a poor section of Compton in California, which is known for its history of gang violence.

She was shot in the head while riding in an SUV driven by her boyfriend (who police reported was the intended victim) and died at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center.
