I want Venus or Serena to win the Aus Open

i've always been a fence sitter with the williams sisters. i've given them a lot of praise for a non fan and i have called them up when they have been out of line in my eyes.

i went through the stage where i thought it was annoying how they won everything and it was exciting when someone challenged or in a rare occurence beat them. now however i have to say that i miss the way they played and i'm actually pulling for them (especially venus) to get up in the Aus Open presuming my let down mercant faves perform as per usual.

am i alone in this thinking? i know there are still plenty of people who dislike them (or one of them) for whatever reason, but i've kind of reached the stage where i want to see tennis at a higher level that i feel it has been lacking for the last couple of years. i think venus has the potential to play so much better as does serena - i prefer venus simply because i love the way she strikes the ball when on and i think her movement is amazing.

i know this probably sounds like jibberish but i felt like saying it.

go sisters.

I want an ALL WILLIAMS FINAL, please!

Some people need to be silenced, and this will surely silence them.

You want to talk about boring did you see last years French open with Myskina against Dementiavia? Or what about the US open Russian finals. With Belgians out and the Williams sister still not 100% the less than exciting Russian revolution will continue. Its time for the Williams sisters to step up to the challenge and take their game to a different level. I think that when they were dominating they had it easier because not alot of players could handle the power and their atheletic abilties. Now these Russians can match their power and not intimidated. Now is the time to work on their game and show the world that they are truly the best.
