Re: Venus, Serena and Pete
I've never really liked Pete. He's always come off as very pompus and full of himself. He can't stand the fact that Roger might take over his record of majors won prob less than a decade since he got the record himself, so he tries to belittle it by saying that Roger doesn't have the competition that he did. Pete, he beat you when he was 19 on your best and favorite court, so stfu!!! And competition, HA!!!! I really don't remember too much of his later on through the years. Andre was in and out the game all the time. Boris was at the end. Rafter was just a mediocore player all-around. Chang was a one-slam wonder. McEnroe and Connors were retired. Lendel was at the end. Edberg was finishing up his career. Courier was burnt out after only 2-3 years. So really, his competition wasn't much different. And when people look back on Rog, they won't say he was all serve.
Onto the Williams sisters. That comment he made about Venus was a while ago. Back then, Venus had even worse mechanics on the serve and sometimes it really didn't look like she never where it was going. But, there was no need to say that when Venus could make the same comment about Pete's backhand. Anyways, no he really hasn't said anything nice about and much less anything nice about anyone other than maybe Laver and little compliments about Roger and Andre. No-one else really.
