Re: Say what you want about the Williams sisters
But they have a knack for making people, commmentators, haters, look like fools.
Exhibit A: Serena. At the beginning of the year...everybody was calling her washed up, a has been, all kinda letters were written..so what does she do? Win the Oz open, destroying media-darling Maria Sharapova in the final, despite starting the event ranked no.81!
Exhibit B: Venus. Washed up, can't beat top players anymore. What does she do? Breaks her OWN record for lowest-seed to win Wimbledon, beating three top 10-ers ( including a trashing of Maria Sharapova AGAIN!)..doesn't drop a set in the last 4 matches and only lost serve twice!!
A TON of posters made some of the worst statements on here about her as well. Even many of her fans gave up on her. But in true Venus fashion, she AGAIN rips the heart out of the haters and naysayers.
