Williams fans who wanted Venus to win please read
I know everyone likes a winner as evidenced by the exodus from Venus' bandwagon onto Serena's we have seen this past year, But why do you think people direct so much venom and ridicule towards Venus because of her losses to Serena? Serena has been nearly invincible and should have been heavily favored to beat Venus this US open, but you would think Venus was the one to beat based on all the support Serena was getting. Basically people still react to Serena like she is an underdog when she faces Venus and throw all the support in her corner. I would have expected Venus to get more support this year since Serena had already beaten her twice in Grand Slam finals. Both Williams and non-Williams fans actually seem overjoyed that Venus lost again in some cases- is there something going on that I'm missing?
I still luv Venus and hopes she continues to add to her remarkable year (7 titles and 3 slam finals, only three losses to the rest of the tour, 4 losses to Serena).
P.S. Also, last night I just realized how skinny Venus really is. Why do the media report on her like she is twice as big as the rest of the tour? Mauresomo, Serena, Davenport, and Capriati are all way bigger. I'm surprised Venus is able to generate so much power on her shots.
