Hell, some people find a way to be fans of both Jennifer Capriati and Serena Williams. If that is possible, then I'm sure one can be fans of both Serena and M. Sharapova. I just can't.

for me it is about commom respect and maria doesnt give serena the respect she deserves......serena is always gracious and maria is a sore winner and loser (yec final was pathetic and appauling).....maria has issues with serena-watch their matches....maria is always the most intense and loud with serena.....maybe b/c serena is the face of womens tennis and she is jealous

but anyways serena has said that maria does not even enter her mind and i am certain that maria thinks about serena everyday

It's possible...but it's bound to be problematic..because Serena being the player she is, she' s gonna form a rivalry with ANYONE that is consistent...and then you' ll have to choose sides.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

What would stop people from being fans of both other than personal preference which everyone has a right to?

It can be done, but rarely. I can't do it. I would be torn if I had a top favorite like Maria, because she would always play Serena in the ladder events

Serena is always gracious?!? She referred to her performance in the Wimbledon final as terrible and always says that she played like crap when she loses. She may be RIGHT, but that's still not being gracious. Just as Maria may not have been too gracious in playing to win a big title when Serena was hurt. In interviews I would say that Maria is MORE gracious than Serena, and she her on-court intensity has nothing to do with Serena just as Serena's intensity has nothing to do with Maria. They're just two fantastic competitors and champions.

That is why I am a fan of both players, although I root for Serena a bit more because I've followed her for so many years she doesn't have as many years left.
