Smile Will Jackson and Perry be the new faves after Williams's retire of the Williams fans?

Just wondering, if both sisters will retire in about let's say ten years, will Jackson and Perry be the new favourites of the Williams fans, I can see that happening, I'm a real big fan of Jackson too and she does many good things too tennis. I also like the personality of Perry.

No. I will cheer for them, but no one can ever replace Venus and Serena. Plus, I like many other players too like Tatiana, Lindsay, Pierce, and Capriati.

Supporting:
Serena "Making Threats" Williams
Venus "Always Injured" Williams

No, the sisters are irreplaceable.

I have seen Jackson and Perry play. They are good kids but in terms of charisma and star quality they are one level below the Williams sisters.

No. No one can replace Venus and Serena. In tennis, and in my heart as well...

"I dream of people watching me holding up my third Wimbledon trophy... Most of all I dream of being a good person to all that are inspired by me I dream of having girls, women, boys, men being fond of not only what I have done on the tennis court, or on the big screen or what I design but I dream of what people think of me as a person.
I dream that people think of me as a giving person as a person that
loves life and is fun to be around." - Serena

Also remember Jamea and Shenay are still NOT at Venus and Serena's level. Venus and Serena are very special both the Williams Sisters were in the top 10 when they were ONLY seventeen years old. Venus and Serena just have the super talent.

It won't be the same when Serena and Venus hang it up. They were (and still are) icons for the game, and they did so much for the sport that no one can ever replace them.

Serena Williams
21-Time Grand Slam Champion

6 AO ('03, '05, '07, '09, '10, '15) 3 FO ('02, '13, '15)
6 WBN ('02, '03, '09, '10, '12, '15) 6 USO ('99, '02, '08, '12, '13, '14)

People root for the player, not the race.

Quite simply, no.

They're games are not the same as Venus or Serena. Or anywhere near as good.
