A House divided- WS fans time to chose sides!

Although I'm not a WS fan I find it interesting for those that love both Serena and Venus equally. I'm always fascinated as to who they decide to root for each time they play one another. I simply can't fathom remaining neutral and being happy with whomever wins and whomever loses. Especially when there are things at stake.

What's at stake for each sister:


Serena: With each week ranked as number one Serena keeps on adding to her 'Hall of Fame' legacy. Each win builds her confidence and allows her to keep collecting titles all the while solidifying her spot as the best in the game.

Venus: As for Venus, she's the sister with the most to prove. It seems the stakes are always higher for her. Only hardcore Vee fans believe that at her best she could take down Serena at her best, so every win over Serena helps build that case. This is Vee's first time back in the top five in ages and if she wants to march closer to the top spot she's gotta be able to take down little sis, not to mention the amount of confidence she'll come away with after beating Serena.

Re: A House divided- WS fans time to chose sides!

me i don't root for one over the other it's just impossible

AO was going to be the only time where i was going to root for Vee over Rena but that's cuz i really wanted Vee to win that tournament (since i think that she is capable of doing it and should have an Aussie trophy already) nothing else

"Off with her head!," yelled Sir Stefwhit.
"Annihilate her," proclaimed Watching.
"Beat her," uttered reetard.
"Beat her BADLY," promulgated Diesel.

Serena's loyal followers have spoken!

Time to pick a side all you "in-betweeners" what say you in this matter??

Re: A House divided- WS fans time to chose sides!

Most people know I ride with Vee and Serena. With that said, I base who I root for on who needs the win the most at that time. I think that Rena's Oz Open win combined with Vee's flameout, means that I'll root for Vee but if Rena gets it done I'll still be happy.

WS fan.
During the match I cheer for whoever is down at the moment. Before the match I cheer for whoever I think needs it more and/or whoever will benefit more from the win. After the match I always cheer on the winning sister.

Love them both, but pulling for Vee this time

I want her to hurry and get to # 2. I'm tired

of them on the same side of the draw every

time. Randomly of course.

Re: A House divided- WS fans time to chose sides!

This isn't even a Sister Slam.

Or a final.

I'll root for Venus since Serena already won a Slam this year but all I really care about it that whoever wins this match wins the whole thing.

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

I was there when the ALL BLACKS won the World Cup in 2011!!!

"I don't know that I changed all that much. They just found somebody worse." - Aging tennis bad boy Jimmy Connors, referring to John McEnroe, in 1984.

There can never be too many "Sister Slams!"
