Post Serena and Venus on opposing sides.

I know Serena and Venus will be facing each other across the net in singles, but will they ever face each other in doubles.

Wouldn't it be interesting to have Serena and Venus with different partners in doubles?

Let's say Serena and Anna K against Venus and Lindsay.

Would tennis fans(other than Williams fans) view them in a different light?

Maybe King Richard doesn't allow this?

Interestng, why some people are so eager to bust up one of the better doubles teams in WTA history.

Maybe Stubbs should play with ANNA or maybe Stevenson and Hingis?

Fans should enjoy the dynamic WILLIAMS/WILLIAMS team instead of trying to bust it up.

I have seen them on opposite sides in doubles but it was MIXED Doubles in the french open.

I know what you mean Tee Rexx.<br />Isn't it funny how we always hear suggestions of our girls playing with other players? One would think that they have crappy records playing doubles. <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">

Question

So what are some of you saying that the sisters are too good to play with others on tour? Some things never change not even on this new board.

No, jakeev, YOU are saying SERENA and VENUS are better than the rest.

Some of us are saying that it is sometimes fun to play with:<br />1. A sibling<br />2. Your best friend<br />3. A 15 year doubles mate.<br />4. One of the best in the world<br />5. Someone who won't backstab you

From a personal viewpoint I would love to see Venus or Serena playing Doubles with one of my favorites. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Now I don't know how many of the catergories, listed by Tee Rexx, that Chanda & Liliah would fall into, but I'm positive that they would never stab anyone in the back. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Did YOU know???

Did you know that the GREATEST doubles player in the world, Martina Navratilova, asked Serena Williams out for doubles once??? <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

Serena Said "Sorry, I only play with my sister".

Jakeev , I don't think this is what is being implied here... I can understand why some fans would like the sisters to partner up with other players-- on the otherhand, the relationship between them is a sight to behold and should be appreciated...

Just go back and watch the prize presentation at the U.S. Open when Venus was in agony over her defeat of Lil Sis to win the trophy...

I just can't see them playing against each other unless in mixed doubles, or if it's absolutely necessary... After all , they're practicing the very family values that America wishes to attain... It just bothers me that there are those who wish to see them rip each other apart... Oh well c'est la vie!!!!
