I think its bogus how many of you all put Venus Williams down. All the threads and ere thing else. It doesn't make sense. This is Venus' first match back since she was injured and her sister was killed. What does it take for a william to earn repect, gratitude etc?
Would this be a different situation if Martina Hingis came back. Sorry but I still to this day don't understand why so many haters to the williams. You all act like we as williams fans really put down other players. There are some out there, but there are more fans of all the rest of the tour players out there, than there are williams fans in General. Venus and Serena are the best players in the world when they are on their games. Over the past couple of years these two have been the most "consistent in winning" deserving to be called and talked about as THE BEST. I think the main thing is, already every hater things venus and serena are to outspoken, over confidenct, arrogant. But that is not how they are or what they want to be, this is how YOU all depict them to be. when you watch them they are soft voiced and ere thing else. Let me give a culture lesson to those out there, Venus and Serena are the NICE blacks that you see, cuz if you grew up or have been in Ghetto (don't take this word as just a slang that has been hyped) or have grew up around a lot of blacks you will have know that we are very agresssive and arrogant. But in reality we keep it real. We are not the ones out there, killing people, shooting ourselves, etc. Its rediculous the treatment the sister get, and all they are doing is being themselves. They have done nothing but fight through all types of shit that is being thrown at them, and even through death, they come out positive, and still people are jumping on their backs.
Had this again been Martina Hingis, as much as the williams fans didn't think of her as someone to cheer against or for, i can remember cheering for her to win so she could play a williams. with venus and serena they have only had williams fans. they barely if at all have non fans out there cheering for them to play against their faves, b/c personally i think they have gotten scared and used to the fact that venus and serena were actually going to win.
its a game people, its not a time to put down people in their weakest moment. this was venus come back, from injury and death, and the sad display of disrespect is unbelieveable. i really don't get it.
its the same exact thing if i was working in an office and and i got injured and was on disablity for a month and in that span my sister or brother died, and when i got back to work as soon as i walked in people cussed me out etc.
let up people, they are two normal and average girls. venus and serena are the real deal. really its all about them. 5 minutes after venus lost, every tennis web page, ESPN, YAHOO, CBS, NBC they had it posted on there. but this message board, yall have probably by the time im done typing this have made over 20 threads and it has gotten really ridiculous!
