Re: The Day Venus And/Or Serena Retires......
I would think that a lot the posters here, most of the tennis establishment and a great number of tennis fans would be overjoyed when they retire. After all, aren't they the most despised tennis players since they never give credit to their opponents, they cancel matches at the last minute, they claim racism when their is none, they fake injuries, take steroids, they are ugly, their fashion sense is obnoxious....after all we all live in this nice happy world where one's skin color does not affect how they are treated. Venomous poison against the sisters is like mother's milk to so many.
Also don't forget the BIG ONE... they ruined tennis..! Having them at the top of the tennis has absolutely ruined tennis! Of course when Martina and Chris were at the top of the tennis world it was the best thing since fire. The disparity is just unbelievable!
Maybe there will even be parties in the streets, people burning effigies of the Williams sisters in triumph..... Wow! Tennis has escaped their evil clutches!

I've learned that sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.
I've learned that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them, and less to do with how many years you have lived.
I've learned that you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.
