Why doesn't Venus sign autographs?

Serena to me seems like a much nicer person than Venus. She smiles, is polite and sings autographs, whereas Venus comes across as arrogant, and doesn't sign autographs.

Re: Why doesn't Venus sign autographs?

serena comes across warmer at the net. i felt sorry for maria today and lindsay back then having to put with Venus "rub it in your face" hops and celebrations where she barely shakes your hand and barely looks at you. serena does better on that account

Re: Why doesn't Venus sign autographs?

Both Serena and Venus have been rude to me and not sign autographs. Venus told me NO and turned her head and Serena totally ignored us and kept walking. But then on another occasion they both signed autographs. So I would say depending on what mood you catch them in will depend on if you get an autograph or not.

You're kidding right? You really need to get your eyes checked

because Venus is one of the most gracious players at the net win or lose.

P.S. in all my haste , I think I gave you a good rep instead of bad---enjoy it, because it won't happen again.

That's pretty much true of any of the players to be honest. Apart from Mary Pierce, who I've never, ever seen refuse an autograph.

What's so funny is that Justine fans of all people are criticizing players for their sportsmanship!!!

Re: Why doesn't Venus sign autographs?

You people are sick. I always see Serena and Venus smiling at the net and saying congradultions to their opponents and the opponents always look away. How many times have I seen Serena smiling when she is at the net with Mauresmo and Mauresmo is so rude and always look away. What about the French Open when Venus with at the net with ASHLEY HARKLEROAD? Ashley was so rude and Venus had a big smile. You people only want to see what you want to see. you only want to see the bad in sisters.

This mother fucker never ceases to amaze me when it comes to Venus. He'll show up in every negative thread about Venus and throw in his awe-inspiring analysis of how things are . Go fuck off already....geez. It's getting a bit tired .

Re: Why doesn't Venus sign autographs?

You know which sister is doing better at the moment at the amount of bash threads. Venus was not winning much before Wimbledon and nobody makes a single bashing comment and everyone is on Serena´s case. And now? Just laughable really!
