this is a somewhat complicated one.


when it comes to Tennis i like watching them both.

however, with Venus it is everything about her that i love.

her mind, her intelligence.
her inner confidence and serenity
her physique
her demeanour
her achievements
the caring qualities she exhibits
her quotes
her application to life -the way she lives her life.

just about everything about her.

whereas with Serena i just like her physique and her outspokeness, not too impressed with any other stuff.

so that (more than) tips the balance towards Venus when they play each other - i suppose that in terms of tennis it is Venus then Serena.

However, in terms of the bigger picture it is only Venus, now i think about it i don't really have a second best.
i used to have players i disliked like Hingis and capriati but not anymore.

Hey Sevenrichie

Venus is amazing - just consider that in a whole Grand Slam event, one of the highlights, for an ordinary fan like me, is reading through Venus' match interviews.

Go Venus
keep those interviews coming

I love Venus, can't stand Serena

Venus has a wonderful personality, class and athleticism. She's also very shy and introverted like me.

Her backhand is one of the greatest strokes in tennis, and imo the greatest and most powerful backhand in the history of tennis which I try to copy all the time!

Why Sam L?--if you don't mind sharing.

Why do you like Venus, but not Serena?

I love Venus (frankly I just love sticking with the original-- what can I say )She has poise, a quiet strength, and controls her emotions-- she's classy and despite losing to her sister 5 times in a row, she's still way above everyone else. I will stick with her through thick and thin...

"I love the game, I love the thrill, I love the "Go Venus`."
"It takes a lot of work to get to this level, so while I can play I'm going to play."

Hi Legends
As if you knew what has been keeping me busy during the whole fortnight of AO.
With all my education and age i still learn something daily just by going thru the transcripts of her interview. What a special creature!

I love the way she plays and her backhand the most.

I used to like Serena until she wore FUR

I just love Venus. A big bump to Everything you said Legend! One thing I wish for Venus in her privite life is that she finds someone that really loves her & that she can laugh with. I think laughter is very inportant to her.

Talking

Since the first time I saw Venus play(97)) I’ve been a Venus fan. I’ve supported Serena in the past due to her being Venus’ sister but to tell the truth. More than likely would not have liked Serena if it was not because of Venus. So… basically I’m a Venus fan that tolerates Serena.

What Okasu said Serena has always rubbed me the wrong way. I once got some shit from a poster because Monica Seles is my 2nd favourite player . Oh well.

"I love the game, I love the thrill, I love the "Go Venus`."

That's what really bothers me. Some Williams fans can't accept that some fans perfer Venus or Serena. Just because some root for both, doesn't mean everyone roots for both.

For me, Serena was my #3 for a long time [Venus has been #1, Arantxa was always my #2], but since last summer, she's been bugging me. She's just done things that I didn't like from other players...so, I'm not about to support her for doing it as well.

tennisIlove, I had no idea ASV was your 2nd favourite?

I also like Daniela Hantuchova a lot, Venus and her both have very similar games and huge two-handed backhands which I like

But mostly I like their playing style.
