Venus and Serena...Rise On/Stay Strong

Surely neither Venus nor Serena live in a bubble, they are quite aware of the deplorable, cruel things that "some" people are saying about them.

May Venus and Serena continue to rise..

Though all the accusations, hatred, jealously, snide remarks from non-fans and some commentators as well, both Venus and Serena continue to smile and give their very best.

The crap these young ladies put up with individually and collectively.. just really makes me
though sometimes their wins remedy that at least for a while....

Rise On! Rise On! Venus and Serena Williams
And hope you know that there are many that applaud each of you

I agree with you Althea, thats why Vee and Rena are so special and classy young ladies. The Williams sisters will continue to shine and the Williams fans will continue to cheer them on despite what their detractors have to say!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great post, maybe it would do players good to shut up, so that maybe Venus and Serena won't be so mad and destroy them Nice post Shane54, Serena was so cute when she found out she was #1 in the world today.

Dawn, you might have touched on a major source of motivation for Venus and Serena! Girls, be nice to Venus and Serena and MAYBE they won't bring their A-Game when you play them.

Venus and Serena, you have transcended your sport.
People are now taking notice. Know that everyone is not Against you, and that you for every 1 hater there is 5 people that love you.

Keep on Pressing on Venus and Serena.

Take the Singles and Doubles this Year!!

Love you Girls.

And remember, It's not your fault you guys can play hella Tennis.
Others just need to step up or get the Fuck out of the way.

Great thread, Althea!

We all need to take a deep breath and just continue to celebrate and enjoy what is unfolding before our eyes.

No one will take away the utter joy I feel for these two young women being where they are today which is on top of the world.

Can't say how long they will be there, but for now, I have chosen to spend my precious energy cheering them on.

Detractors are plenteous, that will never change. But I hope Venus and Serena continue to let their rackets do the talking---it's pretty hard to debate with a tennis racket---and like you said, one has to either put up or shut up at some point.

Williams all the way.
