Post Do you like Serena or Venus better?

Do you like lil' sis or big sis better?

Why?

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Cool

Venus I think. I like her great confidence and her attitude on court. Serena's emotional side is something that gives me heart attacks sometimes, so I think I like Venus just a little more <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I like Serena better.

Because she comes across to me as more geniune and cheerful. Venus seems cold and remote to me.

It doesnt help that Serena is prettier. <img src="redface.gif" border="0">

Dammit, did it again, clicked the vote button before checking if I voted for the right person. I clicked the top one presuming Venus would be on top, but ended up voting for Serena instead.<br />I like Venus best though. She seems very nice to me in interviews and has a very warm smile.

Talking

i like venus better than serena because Venus is a fighter on the court, i can watch her play and learn from that ( thats me ). when i see serena on the court playing a top 5 i do not know what to expect from her so i am always on the edge of the sit. i feel she needs more emotional stability on the court then she could even be better than venus.

I like Venus much better. She's a good player and I just think she's nicer.

Serena seems arrogant to me. Her niceness seems fake, and I really can't stand that. I don't like her game either. And I think she's way too muscular and that's not very attractive.

I prefer Serena - when she throws up the ball for the serve the way she looks at it, reminds me of a panther. Very strange, but that's why.

and where they produce desolation, they call it peace

I really like Serena's play, and am hoping for her to win a GS this year... I used to get really cut up when she beat players I like, but now I don't mind cos she's just about one of them herself.

Only thing I don't like about her right now is the occasional 'boxer talk' in press conferences (although lots of other players are getting into it), but I guess if you don't appear confident you're gonna get slaughtered by press and on the court by players.

Serena looks too Hollywoodish to me. Venus's smile looks more genuine.<br />

Serena. There tends to be a bit of the unexpected when she plays. Wacky stuff happens on court and I'm hardly ever bored. Venus is turning into a robot (or, as I like to call 'em, a "Graf-bot").

Venus does beat her sister hands down when it comes to off-court class though (Serena seems tempermental). But Serena just amuses me more.

I browse once in a while.
