Why can't Williams fans...?

Just be happy.

Serena just won a big tournament, beating # 1, 2, and 3, she won another tournament 3 weeks ago and those are only the second and third tournaments she plays, and she retired injured in the first.

Venus got to # 1, won two tournaments, has won 4 GSs in two years.

I mean, if Justine had just won KB the way Serena did, I wouldn't have been caring about what a commentator said, or if she is # 7 instead of # 9, or if the crowd booed her, I would have been just happy, enjoying the moment.

But no, for some (notice the bold some) Williams fans any chance is good to moan, they will never be happy, no matter what.

It does get tiresome some times.

Because they won't rest until we ALL support the Williams' complete domination of the tennis tour.

WHY CANT YOUR ASS QUIT PUTTING ALL WILLIAMS FANS IN ONE GROUP? SINGLE OUT THOSE THAT YOU FEEL AREN'T HAPPY!! CAUSE I CAN SINGLE YOU OUT! FINGON.. sooooooooooooooo

CHECK YOUR OWN BACKYARD CAUSE MARTINA HINGIS HAS BEEN PLAYING SOLID TENNIS AND IT SEEMS THAT A CERTAIN SEGMENT OF HINGIS FANS CAN'T BE HAPPY!!!! (FINGON) INCLUDED JUST CAN'T BE HAPPY!!

SHE LOSES ONE MACTH HASN'T WON A SLAM AND 3 YEARS AND STILL CAN BEAT 98% OF THE TOUR AND (YOU)!!AND OTHERS JUST CAN'T BE HAPPY!!!

AGAIN STOP LUMPNG ALL VENUS AND SERENA FNS TOGETHER CAUSE I AM SOOOOOO HAPPY!! SERENA KICKED HINGIS ASS AND BEAT JENNIFER!

Fingon: Good question. I have no clue.

I am happy that Serena won

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Hmm, I kind of agree with Fingon but I'm not really sure because my fave player is Kim and if she had just won a title, I would be happy and not complaining but then again Kim is treated very differently than the Williams... if she was booed when she wins, maybe I'd complain too... I dunno... I think this issue is hard to understand unless you are a Williams fan...

If Dawn wasn't having a spaz attack she owuld notice that Fingon said SOME. How exactly is that grouping all Williams fans together?

But I completely agree with VBN and Seles and Fingon. There is no point to some of the ranting that a select few of the Williams fans do. And I suspect it is because they want everyone to love Venus and Serena.

PS> Notice the 'select few' and 'SOME', before you start acting like Dawn Marie.

Fignon, I totally agree with you. After being on the old WTA board and this one, I could never understand why some had that attitude. But then, it all came to the surface. Someone started a thread for everyone to post their age and alot of Williams' fans were between 15- 18 yrs. old so that explained alot of things...

and Dawn Marie, take chill pill please. Fignon clearly said "SOME" not ALL! You just proved his point. The reason why I dislike the Willliams sisters is not b/c of them, but the attitude of their fans. Get a grip!
Thanks Fignon! No regrets

Dawn, maybe if you took the time to read before thinking there is a conspiracy you would have notice that not only I said some, I put that in bold and clarified that in parentheses, because I new that SOME Williams fans would moan on that too.

Plus, I would waste my time trying to talk about Martina, because Martina Hingis has not (IMO which is the only that matters to decide who I support and who I don't) been playing good tennis, and I said before I won't be happy with Martina Hingis until she wins a Grand Slam.

Let me spell it out for you.

Situation 1: Martina Hingis wins every single tournament in the tour, beats Venus, Serena, Jennifer, Lindsay, everyone, doesn't drop a set, but doesn't win a GS. Result, I am not happy with her.

Situation 2: She wins a GS and loses in the first round in all the other tournaments, I am happy.

What the hell are you comparing? are you comparing Venus winning four GS in a period that Martina won none? and you say I am never happy?, reading between lines as you like to say, I would say you mean the Williams are so superior that I should be happy with Martina just winning small tournaments. Well, when Martina wins a GS, Pam Shriver can say whatever her ass wants, and the crowd can boo so loud that I can hear it from here in Canada, and she can be ranked # 100, and I would still be happy.

If you don't understand the difference, there is no point on me explaining it.

you expect me to read all that?

if u think williams fans should be happy with their players, maybe u shouldn't be so harsh on martina, she beats 9995 out of the top 10000 players all the time, and has sporadic success with the other 5. thats not bad at all.

I don't think you want to repeat that! I don't think it is intelligent to dislike two people because of what strangers to them and strangers to you say from their anonymity and their emotion.
Please don't embarrass yourself.
