RenaNuts VeeNuts At Odds
As a fan I come down on the Venus side, not just in terms of just wanting her to win, but that I thoroughly enjoy watching her play, except in the few times when her game is completely out of sorts. Nevertheless I am a fan of Serena, and even when Serena beats her, I get some pleasure in the fact that she won, at the same time as I feel quite bad that Venus lost. Both have extraordinary talent, skills, and are superb tacticians. Notwithstanding that they are two very different people, these are the Sisters. The accomplishments of both meld into one. This will become most apparent when they are inducted into the Hall of Fame together, and they remain together an enduring part of tennis lore.
For years the Veenuts have had no problem with Serena being acknowledged, even by themselves, as the greatest player of her generation, and in the running for GOAT. They even joined in the criticism of Venus's "weak" second serve, "unreliable" forehand, and "inconsistent" and at times even "disinterested" play.
Now when it is dawning on VeeNuts that recent play indicates that Venus might just be Serena's equal, and god forbid even the better player ReeNuts go ballistic. They are at best surly , and at worse do Serena (always surly in defeat) one better spew hate. After all Venus is a "cheat", and "How dare she elevate her game". Have a heart, the VeeNuts are not derogating Serena's game (she is great), they are just enjoying the thought that Venus 's star shines brighter than ever.
Nevertheless my hats off to the RenaNuts, they are the better fans, to paraphrase Williams pere, because they are meaner.
