most of them never discuss any other tennis before 1999....so odd

I know I've watched tennis well before they got on the scene, in fact my favorite players were Monica Seles and Andre Agassi.

men that has to be one of the worst post of the day, but when you consider the messenger, what did you expect?

come on

do you think that that the justine, the kim fans know more than the williams fans, before 99.

Posted by Mad-about Venus: So true

To me Pam is a frustraded person who needs to live with the fact that she never won a Slam during her pathetic career, and she was never a threat to anybody. She resents the fact that players can get to places she always dreamed about. Unfortunatelly she has a microphone in her mouth and that allows her to spread a whole bunch of BS. That gives her joy. Someone should tell her to stick that micro somewhere else, she would get even more joy that way.

what´s up with people calling out williams-fans all day?! Does the thread-starter himself know anything about tennis before ´99?!

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

I guess it's normal, the williams sisters brought a whole new group of fans to the courts who were not fans before like every champion who has a totally different style and his own, different story does.

I'm sure also Kim and Justine brought many new (belgian) fans to the tour, but because the achievements of Dominique and Sabine already were a bit amazing for such a small country like Belgium (they were 2 of our main sports(wo)men), a lot of people here in Belgium followed the tennis already a bit.
