 The sisters are backing a women's rights organization campaign 'Breaking The Mould.'
On their first visit to Nigeria, the Williams sisters are already inspiring children to set their goals high.
"We were really able to break the mold and win a lot of Grand Slams and a lot of tournaments and not only that, but kind of change the face of tennis," Serena said Wednesday before an exhibition match against her sister in Lagos on Friday.
"We were able to break the mould in a sport that was really dominated by white people ... it doesn't matter what your background is and where you come from. If you have dreams, if you have goals, that's all that really matters."
