I never thought I would think this but I hope Venus loses to Myskina

I love Venus and am a fan of hers. But I have to say I hate all Williams sisters matches, It not enjoyable the tennis is always shit. And you feel so much for both girls out there.
Plus no matter who win the fans start to all kick off with each other.
The reason I want Venus to lose and not Serena is the fact that I like Myskina a lot.
But Jen for some reason gets on my nerves, And i don't want to watch her any longer then I have to.

Well there it is im sure that all the Venus fans will start calling me a hater but that how I feel. Its not like Venus will never have a chance at the french agin. And hopeful Serena will be in the other draw.

i hope they both win. well their Aussie Open Final is their best match. the problem is that Venus can´t see Serena as an oponent she always sees Serena as her sister. Serena doesn´t do that. that´s why Serena screams and plays like she´s playing against others. but i really want Vee to win the match and the tournament. and she "needs" to beat Serena to gain some cofidence back.

It's been almost a year since the last All Sister matchup, and alot has happened to their family since then. If they matchup it's hard to tell what might happen. Their matches were getting better. Will the upward trend continue? Will they regress because of Yetunde's death? Don't forget Serena is still a lil rusty. For all we know Vee has gotten over the Baby Sis component. We really don't know what could happen IF they end up playing each other.

ps--I think Rena is more likely to lose than Venus.

I respectfully suggest that you find something else to watch Thursday, because it's going to happen.

I agree but I don't know maybe its just uneasy to watch for me. If it does happen then all im gonna hope for is a good match, with both girls playing well.

i don't like the sisters playing for the simple reason i'm left in a trance. if i do get into it, i root for one, then root for the other to catch up, etc etc. it sucks having your two faves play each other. in Australia, i only watched the first set between Marat and Roger before i couldn't take anymore

finals are not as bad, because both of them have got as far as possible, but should they play this semi, i'm not all that sure if i'll watch it. i'll tape it live, and maybe watch it after, but maybe if they play on thursday, i'll go do something else like study.

of course, Jennifer and Nastya may beat them and that'll be even worse

also, if they play on thurs, i'm staying off the board. whoever loses will get a lot of shit, and maybe whoever wins also.

I don't like the sistahs playing, because the matches always suck... and it turns into a little family show.

I like Tennis, not Full House.

My only hope that if they do play, they both play 100%, which has never happened. I would say "may the better player win", but the better player never wins...because Venus was the better player in Paris 02, Aussie 03, WB 03...and she lost.

BTW, if you like both sisters...why would you want Venus to lose? Seems to me "Williams Fans" should want Venus to win since it's been awhile since she's won a major. Not so with serena

Becuse I don't really like Jen Cap and the less I have to see of her the better.
But I dont mind Myskina in fact she is one of my faves and I would love to her win a slam at some point in her career.

You're not a fan if you are rooting against the player you "like."

Besides, how do you expect the meetings to get better between them if they never face each other??
