I think the numerous "Williams related threads" do show there are plenty of members here whose tennis interest concentrate on the top players in particular the sisters, yet this has also overridden the fact that there are a lot of other members who concentrate on the wider scope of tennis but they have just been naturally idle in this forum recently.

2 weeks ago it was all about Justine...

When a top player actually plays, there are always numerous threads about her! Not a Williams thing at all...

Actually even when the conversation is about another top player, they always try to insert the Williams in the discussion even if it doesn't makes sense

Lucie ''Lucka'' Safarova, Petra ''KvittyGoat'' Kvitova, Sabine ''BoomBoom Bine'' Lisicki

I know, its really annoying how everyone concentrates on top players, particularly the Williams sisters!
Every time theres a thread about something irrelevant, some hater always finds a way to bring the Williams sisters into it when no one even mentioned them first. Some people really need to stop focusing on the Williams sisters and start talking about their own players.

Yes because people who are not their fans talk just as much about the sisters as the fans do. Isn't that funny?

Williams Tennis Association

WTA

People love them, and they love to hate them. Which is why thier "Q" ratings are so high, and they have landed the two biggest endorsement contracts for female athletes.

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "
