Congratulations to all Venus fans...

It's mostly non-Williams fans who start the problems.

The Williams fans are just there to defend their fave from their negativity.

I think most WS fans are Lindsay fans after all Lindsay is the first big babe of tennis. Myself I love tennis period, except when Maria plays.

Exactly, which is why I hope Lindsay does not win the USO because it is her fans and her bandwagon fans that have been piling on Venus and I am waiting for the letdown in the name of either Justine, Serena or Amelie.

I think the Vee fans are used to the losses, and it's nice to see them showing some "class & restraint" Now if it was Serena who lost....

well just like every other fan base...there are the gracious fans and then there are the delusional fans

It just so happens that most people give their attention to the latter, and just ignore the decent ones

You just showed your bitterness provoked by Venus' loss....How do you want non-Williams fans to support you when you write stupidities like these ?

When I read comments like yours, I become a MEGA anti-Wliiams fans..

Oh...by the way, congrats Lindsay You were definitely and clearly the SUPERIOR player out there today

This is a stupid thread. This idiotic generalization of Williams fans is so immature.

GOOD LUCK

Well in all honesty, good play should be respected. Lindsay was great today.

And for some of us, Lindsay is a favorite as well. I think some Venus fans while sad that Venus lost, saw some sparks that lifted them up and at times, it's good to concentrate on the positives.

Being down on Lindsay would have shown a lack of respect for her as a player, but for the match and what Venus also contributed to that great match.

*starts problem*
Congratulation to you too. I am immensly surprised. I never thought that you would acknowledge Venus' fans being gracious in their fave's defeat. Yes, it's worth to be mentioned. Thank you.

Seriously though, this (not mine, but your) post is kind of unreasonable. It's not the problem of Venus' fans that you overlooked their gracousness throughout the years and assumed that they can't be one. All of a sudden your eyes can see the truth (half-truth actually since you still see their graciousness as an exception rather than the rule) and you want me to appreciate it?
