I agree with H-V 100%. Well said.
I think also that it depends on the fan. I would think that most fans of either sister like the other sister as well. I think that they themselves might have a hard time knowing whether or not they have a true preference one way or the other. That's how I would describe myself. I might feel awkward if Serena were to surpass Venus, but I would probably soon get over it, and I would never dislike Serena because of it.
From the few fans who have a strong preference for one of the sisters, or even dislike one but like the other, I think we'll see the intra-group rivalry.
Personally, the biggest thing that I dislike about the whole Venus vs. Serena is that one of them has to lose. I especially hate it if they are on the same side of the draw and end up meeting before the final, because then I almost require the victorious Sister to win the whole tournament in order for me to be consoled.
Once Serena reaches close to the top, we'll have a better idea. And yes, she'll get there.
