Step by Step: The Journey of Lyndrea and Isha Price, the Older Half-Sisters of Venus and Serena Williams

Step by step, Lyndrea and Isha Price have been carving out their own paths in the world of tennis. As the older half-sisters of two of the greatest athletes of our time, Venus and Serena Williams, they have been constantly compared to their younger siblings.

But the journey of Lyndrea and Isha has not been an easy one. From growing up in a single-parent household in Compton, California, to fighting for recognition on the court, they’ve faced numerous obstacles along the way.

Despite this, both sisters have pursued successful careers outside of tennis. Lyndrea is a lawyer who graduated from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) with a degree in mechanical engineering before obtaining her Juris Doctorate at Georgetown University Law Center. Meanwhile, Isha is an entrepreneur who co-owns VGQ Holdings – a company that provides funding for startups owned by minority women.

So how did these two sisters navigate their lives as sisters to world-famous athletes? Let’s take a closer look at their journey.

Growing Up

Lyndrea and Isha were born to Oracene Price and Yusef Rasheed when Oracene was in her early 20s. Later on, Oracene married Richard Williams – father to Venus and Serena – which made Lyndrea and Isha half-siblings to the tennis stars.

Their upbringing was tough as they lived in a low-income neighborhood rife with gang violence. They learned how to stay tough from their mother who was known for being strict as well as caring. “My mom was definitely someone you didn’t fool around with,” recalls Lyndrea fondly. “But she also always encouraged us to not limit ourselves.”

Tennis Careers

While Venus and Serena were training hard under Richard’s guidance from an early age, Lyndrea and Isha didn’t start playing until later on due to financial constraints within their family.

Although it was challenging to break into the tennis world, both sisters eventually received athletic scholarships and played on their college teams. Lyndrea attended Howard University while Isha went to the University of Maryland.

Unlike Venus and Serena who went pro at an early age, Lyndrea and Isha chose not to pursue professional tennis careers. Instead, they focused on education and other professional endeavors.

Off-Court Endeavors

Lyndrea became a lawyer after completing her undergraduate studies in mechanical engineering. After obtaining her Juris Doctorate from Georgetown Law School, she launched her own law firm that catered to people who needed affordable legal representation.

On the other hand, Isha co-owns VGQ Holdings which provides funding for startups owned by minority women. The company also focuses on educating these business owners about investment strategies and corporate governance.

And although their paths have led them out of tennis, they continue to support Venus and Serena wholeheartedly as fans and sisters.
