Congrats to the Williamses but honestly...

it's not like Flipkens and Maes had a chance to begin with. Some people here reacted as if the result was unexpected or something
I mean come on, Maes is outside the Top 200 guys!!
And many of you said Serena played unbelievable, I didnt think so... she played good enough to win it IMO - she probably would have played much better against a stronger opponent!
Anyway my point is... this QF is really boring unless you're american (or belgian!) or a WS fan i guess? (not even sure) But they all acted like it was a final or something! (I watched the TTC)

Re: Congrats to the Williamses but honestly...

I just find it odd you didn't go after all the other top players who won gimme matches, but that's typical of a Williams hater. Carry on buddy!

Re: Congrats to the Williamses but honestly...

No matter what Venus or Serena accomplish, some folks simply will always try to downplay it.

When Serena won AO there were those who tried to find excuses as to why she beat the "better" players. Since rankings mean so much, Serena should not have stood a chance at either AO or Miami.

I'm sure that had they chosen not to play, some would have gone on and on about that too.

I think you have a point.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.

1) who are u to tell anyone here to shut up? Freedom of speech
2) your comment is completely irrelevant... of course Venus and Serena didnt choose the Belgian team, not my point at all...

Anyway, my post was nothing against the Williamses, but why am i even surprised to have all Williams fans on my back when as a non-fan i simply mention their name?
My post was about that mediatic QF, when really there is nothing exceptional, except the fact that both sisters are playing.

Re: Congrats to the Williamses but honestly...

I think some of the Williams fans on here just have a tendency to go over the top. It's got nothing to do with "downplaying" their victories at all, it's just not in the least bit suprising for the rest of us that they won.
