every match? are you watching some sort of lesbian tennis league?

It all depends on the opponent's culture, whether they are good friends, etc.
What a stupid question

BTW, I have seen Kim and Venus/Serena kiss at net.

None of the Americans do, because we are from a different culture in which we just don't do that.

It's mostly a non-American thing to do.

Lindsay doesn't do it, Jen doesn't, none of the American women do it. They only do it when the opponent leans forward to do it, and they don't want to leave them hanging.

Well you should watch the Capriati-Serena SF match in Rome, 2 weeks ago ... you'll see that they're kissing each other at the net at the end of the match ...

I wouldn't kiss either. All that nasty sweat and phelm that people wipe on their face etc. It's nasty.

Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.

if Serena would kiss players after the match, i'd become a tennis player and fix every draw so i could get my ass kicked by her week after week

i've seen Jen do it with Serena, Serena with Kimmie, same with Venus and ofcourse the sisters give eachother a big hug, but for the most part americans don't do that stuff because its not something we do.

Because, you see most of the Eastern European players wipe their hands either on the netcord or their dresses after they shake Venus and Serena's hand anyway, so I'm sure they would be repulsed by the prospect of touching black skin to white skin even more intimately!

in all seriousness, why should they? it's not an American thing to do.

but i've seen Serena do it a few times...Kim, Jen, Babara Rittner (last year RG 1st rd), Morariu....

I laughed at that.

You could tell Jen wasn't going to do it, but Kveta leaned forward and puckered her lips, and Jen just didn't want to leave her hanging.
