When Martina beat Venus 6-1 6-1 ...

.... I didn't whine about it. I didn't bitch about Martina's arrogance. I didn't start rumors out of jealousy.

When Venus clearly played well enough to win Wimbledon 99 and Steffi just HAD to play one of her best matches ever, I grit my teeth and took it.

When Monica beat Venus at OZ this year, I hated it. But I didn't start rumors Monica was on drugs.

And you what? I'm still glad I didn't. Rumor-mongering out of jealousy is... hmmm how to put it? Let's be gentle. It's a sign of poor breeding. My mother would be ashamed if I did anything like that. Besides, other than seeing Venus lose, which makes me physically ill, tennis is great for me to watch. I enjoyed the Berlin final quite thoroughly. Serena's nice, but she ain't Venus and Justine took it to her that day. And of course, Berlin made the Rome final all the sweeter.

I even, (I really shouldn't admit this) enjoy the presence of most of Venus and Serena's detractors. Knowing every Williams win drives them deeper into their holes IS a perverse pleasure. Venus, I suspect, would not approve. At least she wouldn't admit it. But I get twice the pleasure out of every win. Because before virtually every match Venus or Serena plays, someone posts praying they'll lose. So I get to enjoy the win, and the suffering of the detractors.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Get over it already.

If you think anybody is physically "suffering" because Venus/Serena win, then you have issues.

I doubt many people here are THAT hurt by any Williams win. This is a pointless thread to goad people into insulting the Sisters and you, only letting you revel even more in your "perverse pleasure".

What was so wrong about Vanity's post? Nothing is spelled wrong, and the grammar she used is correct.

This is just another useless thread that will probably be locked soon.

A tip to the extreme pro-williams people: if Williams "detractors" bother you so much, then post at an all-williams fan board. Otherwise, you're going to have to deal with it here. This is after all, a tennis board for all tennis fans. Not everyone is going to like the Williams and bow down to them.

Weevee,
I guess "getting over it" was made all the easier by supporting players like "Nancy" and "DeWonder". LOL

It's Dewonder you dipstick. Whats so wrong with supporting players like Nancy and Dewonder anyway? You obviously don't have the brain capacity to insult someone, so you criticize people they cheer for.

Huh? Lindsay and Hingis are not people that alot of fans should have to ass kiss either. Like I wrote earlier I for one am glad that they are on the mend, but I want to see Venus and Serena beat that ass as well. just like fans of other fans want to see Lindsay and hingis beat up on Venus and Serena.

The only difference is that this board is moderated by pro Hingis and Lindsay people, and anti Williams. You either got to roll with the punches or deal with it.

LMAO, Dawn, what the hell we're you replying to? As far as I can tell that post had nothing to do with naything else posted before it. What do the moderators have to do with anything here? If you don't like who thier favorites are, thne get off your own ass and become one.

Don't let my post get you in a tizzy fit Ryan14, just ignore it.

Don't worry about me and moderating, but if you want to then so be it. I will get off my ASS when I do so choose. And right now I feel like sitting on my ASS. Just like you and everyone else's eyes are focused on the computer at this precise time.


omg, I am actually responding to a 14 year old.

Ryan,

I don't argue with "children", so, I'll keep my comments to you as brief as possible. Firstly, calling me a "dipstick" really makes you feel like a man, huh?? It, really shows how intelligent you are!! My comments, though not addressed to you, were sarcasm and intended to read as such. However, with your limited points of reference, you failed to understand. And, I'm okay with that. Secondly, I've more "brains" in my little finger than you've acquired in all of your diminutive 15 years. If that's your age and not your IQ.

You should STAY IN A CHILDS' PLACE, and only respond, WHEN SPOKEN TO. Did your parents teach you any manners. Probably not since they allow you to use the internet unsupervised!! Again, your failure to recognize the sarcasm just goes to underscore your childish limitations. Please put me on your ignore list, and don't respond to me or any of my posts. Like I said, I, don't argue with children.
