if the rest of the top twenty looked like Venus and Serena, would you still watch?

Hey I'm a fan of the sisters (a very serious one) but I do have other favorites so no way I would stop watching much less coming to post on this board.

Yes I will.. I'm a fan of the sisters. But I'm even more of a tennis fan.

I watched before them and I'd watch after them. I just think I would return to being a casual tennis fan who really doesn't have any favorites.

Just as Serena re-ignited my interest in tennis when Steffi retired so too will my next "unknown" favorite when Serena decides to move on to other things...

There is a false misconception that Venus and Serena fans are not tennis fans and only fans of the "sisters"- in my case (and the case of most people I know) that is simply not true.

When Serena's taking a break or sitting a tournament out you can always find me wishing both Kim and Lindsay well.

STEFWHIT'S MILLATARY RANKS:
The Commander In Chief: Steffi Graf
General: Serena Williams
Admiral: Kim Clijsters
Lieutenant General: Elena Dementieva
Major General: Myskina


nominees for Brigadier General:
Venus, Golovin, Lindsay, Petrova, and Pierce

I am not trying to dis their fans but it interests me to find their next choice.

I always thought momo was popular with S and V fans.

Venus and Serena were the reason why I started to follow tennis. They will always be my favorite players. But once they will retire I will be rooting for other players. For example, Eleni Daniilidou, Sharapova, Safina, Bovina, basically most of the young Russians

I started watching tennis when the sisters started playing but now that I´m too deep in, i think I´ll remain a fan. Kim, Maria K, Sprem, Maria Sharapova...all are good young players to root for after the sisters hang their rackets.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

didn't you know Williams fans are the end all be all? They need to know our motivations, what we think, why we are, and what will we do after V/S retire.
