Venus announces that she will retire when........

Serena retires. She says she does not want to fly solo without Serena!!!!! If serena does not make a succesful come back in two weeks, my guess is that she might decide to hang up her racket!! Maybe Vee knows something and is trying to prepare us ahead of time. Noooooooooooooo!!! I don't want them retired at the same time, but I somehow always thought that it would happen!! Hope Venus can defend her title at Wimbly....might be her last!!! Your thoughts??? Article at tennisnews. Short, but to the point.

Venus and Serena.....2012 Grand Slam Champions!
The Greatest Ever Grand Slam Team, Does It Again!!!!

And It's Not Over Yet...Just Wait....Wait.

Even if she said that, it would have been blown out of proportion.

Stupid article, stupid thread.

I hope thats not true, i thought Venus wanted a long career, I would have expected Serena to retire first but I hope Venus will keep on going at least for another few years

Don't say things like this. When they retire they retire. They won't anytime soon. If they were going to, do you think serena would still be entering all these tournies? NO!

People say things but things change. My guess is that Venus will still be around for another 3 or 4 years. On the other hand I don't think we are going to see much more of Serena on a tennis court.

How is that even possible, they rarely go to each other's matches unless they are both in the tourny. Even when they go the same tourny, when one loses the other takes the next plane out. Serena was not in paris this year, she is not in london now and the list is endless.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

She's always said that, but it's not gonna happen in the next few years...Just relax and stay calm ...and btw, the thread title is misleading

Wimbledon:

NO.7: VenusWilliams
NO.6: SerenaWilliams

If they retire, we can thank the both of them for over a decade worth of world-class tennis, as they changed the landscape of women's tennis.

Imagine the blow to the tennis world if this happens, losing both Williams Sisters at once will be a huge disspointment, but as long as they are happy then that's all that matters.

So why hasnt there been a big article on espn or bbc about it!?

Ok, maybe the thread wasnt stupid, but I think its a bit obvious that this so called "article" hastn excatly sat down and had a 30 min interview with Venus, more like a 20 second one.
