Why Don't The Williams Challange Often?

This is something that has always puzzled me because sometimes there are times when they should have.

Maybe it disrupts their momentum,thought process,fires them up too much?
I dunno.

Re: Why Don't The Williams Challange Often?

They like to focus on their own game and let the umpire and linespeople do their jobs without making a fuss. It has cost them some important points over the years (2004 US Open and Wimbledon) but it shows their respect for the sport and themselves.

Venus is usually wrong when she challenges, so why bother?
