They don't even call each other that way. So please have a little dignity when you don't even know theses woman. Plus "Rena" horrible, makes me think of "Renée", the worst name ever.

Re: Will you stop calling Venus "Vee" and Serena "Rena" ??

Yeah... why Serena to call RENA instead REE which is more natural nickname for her???

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

They[Serena+family] do call Venus "Vee" and Rena "Ree". I know, Jankovic lost, but find something else to care about.

Isn't there anything better to discuss about the WS, who are on the verge of second resurgence than not calling them names they call themselves?

Well, at least Serena call Venus Vee.

Nadia Petrova is more efficient picking up potatoes, just like Safina. They are best buds in potatoe fields.

What's next? Forbidding Amélie Mauresmo fans from callling her Momo?

(Yes, I know Mauresmo herself doesn't like that nickname. What's hilarious is that even Sveta calls her like that, apparently. )

We'll continue to call them Rena and Vee.

Kirilenko's nickname reminds me of a french cheese, yet you don't hear me complaining (makiri = kiri )

In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Re: Will you stop calling Venus "Vee" and Serena "Rena" ??

Well Rena's nickname is Ree and Venus's is Vee. Richard has been known to also call Rena, "Meke," which is a shortened version of her middle name. I call Serena, Rena or Ree, and I don't pronounce Rena as "RENÈE." But, in the grand scheme of things, we must ask ourselves: Does it really matter??

Why is this a topic again??
