the reason chanda has loads more fans than the willis

i know the willis fans get mad coz the fans cheers for others more then the willis but there are loads of reasons why and we can use chanda as a example. these are things that maybe you didn't realise.

chanda doesn't act all concieted if she wins and she compliments other players. the willis rarely ever say anything about the other players and when they lose it's all about them like the person they played had nothing to do with it.

chanda has loads of friends on the tour like marti, sandrine, babsi, asv and corina. the willis don't have any at all.

chanda plays doubles with loads of other players. when the willis do play doubles they only play with each other.

chanda is more humble on the court which is what people like but the willis always act like they are just better then everybody when they're on the court.

chanda's parents keep away from tennis. i never seen them. the willis parents are always there and they aren't quiet about being there and act like they want attention just like there daughters.

martinailuv the stupid, lying MORON strikes again. What a bottomless pit of ignorance! (Also please learn how to spell "conceited" before you post--you've spelled it incorrectly every single time you've used it in one of your endless emptyheaded posts--'I before E, except after C' is a good rule--please remember it).

Martinailuv, Chanda is not a threat to your faves yet. She is not winning tournaments left and right. When she is that and the crowd is rooting for her to get more, may be you will bump this thread so we could all admire your astute observations. Until then, it seems to me that you are trying to relate two different phenomena.

martinailuv - Yo may be right. I'm too upset argue. And besides, being more popular, that means Chanda wil soon have a FIFTY million dollar, five year contract form Mike or Puma or Wilson or somebody. Which I'm glad to see her get. And when she does get, I'll agree that Chanda is more more popular than Venus or Serena.

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.

I start to think that sometimes(not all, only in some cases) people use Rubin so that they want to prove that they are no racists and can dislike/hate Venus and Serena with a peacefull heart or something like that!

I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams

Sometimes, but not always.

Chanda isn't a threat, that's for sure, FOR THE MOMENT ! Let's wait another year .... we'll see.

About the sisters being always together, playing together, having no friends .... well, it's because they were together that they've been able to go so far, because they were helping out each other and standing for each other. They just didn't need the others who anyway, didn't really welcome them. Chanda had certainly more to put up with on her own, but she won't speak much about it, although sometimes she let something go in interviews. Yes, there is racism on tour. No, I haven't been welcome. And so on. But she had to adapt, wheteher, the sisters didn't have to. Sorry if anyone is jealous, but I guess that's the key of their success.

No all of these reasons are certainly true, if you wanna analyse the thing.

Don't argue with idiots, they bring you down to their level and beat you with experience

I agree with Irma. I get so tired of seeing posters use Chanda simply to prove that the dislike of the Williams sisters isn't based on race. While I am sure that there are many people who do dislike the sisters and Chanda based on their race, a lot of the dislike is because of their dominance in the game. Remember that Steffi Graf and Martina Navratilova were also disliked in their heydays.

people who say chanda isn't a threat to V&S will be eating their words next year! I sense she's just bubblin' under at the moment waiting to explode into the slams next year. Benny Simms was hinting at a Capriati-style comeback for chanda on New York Stories on Eurosport a few days ago

This is untrue.

chanda has loads of friends on the tour like marti, sandrine, babsi, asv and corina. the willis don't have any at all.
How do you know?

chanda plays doubles with loads of other players. when the willis do play doubles they only play with each other.
So what?

chanda is more humble on the court which is what people like but the willis always act like they are just better then everybody when they're on the court.
But they are.

chanda's parents keep away from tennis. i never seen them. the willis parents are always there and they aren't quiet about being there and act like they want attention just like there daughters.
Chanda's parents are not Venus and Serena's parents. Don't tell people how to raise their children, or how their relationship should be.

Here you go again. Using Chanda as a strawman in this argument is hackneyed and pedestrian. I find it interesting the great lengths that people on this board take to prove that their HATRED of the Williams sisters is not racially motivated. Me thinks he doth protests too much.

Martinailuv you are obsessed. You have issues. Your posts are becoming increasingly unreasonable and chaotic. I don't know if its motivated by your fave's recent downturn or if there are other issues.

In any event, this is a good place for you to turn

why does everyone think that people who doesn't like the Williams sisters are racists???? They are both arrogant, and pretend to be very smart...yeah right They are great tennisplayers, no doubt about that, but I don't like their character for one bit.

I'm not a racist at all..I love Marion Jones, Michael Jordan,.. it's the sisters' character that makes them so unpopular. That's all.

I have gained a new found respect for Martina Navratilova. She was ashamed of how little respect the crowd gave Venus in her Mauresmo match. Venus the American, all dressed up in red, white, and blue, playing under the 9/11 autographed flag being dissed in favor of a French woman. Good grief!

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!
SERENA PRINCESS OF POWER

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
Françoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.
