Today rereleased a 1991 video profile on the successful sisters Wednesday via Twitter, in which an 11-year-old Venus notes how she fell in the love with the sport. Serena, who was just 9 at the time, is also seen hitting balls in the clip.

“I think when I was 5 years old, that’s when I think I started liking it a lot,” says Venus in the video, which is now going viral. “I really started getting serious when I was 7. I think first it was my dad and my mom and my family, going out there to help me and push me.”
