I think they have alot of fans that enjoy watching and the rest enjoy cheering for their opponent. Most spectators and fans go for the underdog in every match, unless their personal fave is playing.

This is truly the silliest question ever posed here. Why would there not be a lot of non black American Williams fans? Unless you think there is no reason for non blacks to be fans of blacks. And as far as a lot of people not liking them, it's actually not them they don't like, it's more about what they represent; change in a predominately white sport that for the most part wants to remain that way. True that the Williams are very very very popular with the general American public, as evidenced by tons of polls, but the powers that be behind the sport still don't want tennis to because a so-called "black sport" like the NFL, NBA, track and field, ect. Also ESPN shows Williams matches because they get the highest ratings in America, like I said, they are very very popular with the America public. Nadal may be big in Spain, but in America he's not very well known compared with the Williams or Andy.

Re: is there a lof non black american serena/venus fans?

Serena is the most popular female athlete in the United States. Venus is #3. Blacks only account for about only 12% of the total U.S. population (maybe less, because the hispanic population is increasing dramatically). You do the math.

ROCK ON:
elena dementieva, serena williams, caroline wozniacki, ana ivanovic
david nalbandian, rafael nadal, andy murray, gael monfils, jo-wilfried tsonga

Most threads are started by the "non fans" though. E.g. this one.

To answer the question, no. Only black Americans like Serena.
Nobody else. Anywhere.

If you wanna know the population make-up of the Williams fans then go start a poll in their forum
As far as I'm concerned, I'm asian.
