Why people despise Venus and Serena. My opinion.

they have accomplished so much so far, that i really wouldn't mind if they retired today from tennis if it made them happy.
they both can look proud at their career stats when they retire, even today, they would see four slams each, holding number 1 position, etc...
both are healthy, and both have something else to cling to after they retire from tenns, Venus with her business, and Serena with her acting. before i used to wonder why some people DESPISED them, but now i know why some people DESPISE them EVEN MORE. they are successful. and they are happy. no, one doesn't despise someone because they hate their game, hey, they could turn off the channel and not watch for christ sake, instead of having nightmares of Williams winning another slam. they despised Venus, but now they despise Serena too, because they know that what has happened is what they feared and hoped would not happen, Venus & Serena #1 & #2. Ouch, what a rough blow to the haters! I apparently thought that they ran out of things to put the sisters down and would finally consider realizing what they have achieved, but no, it is more like 'not if they win the grand slam', then when they do, it will be 'not until they win olympic gold in the same year as the grand slam, and win all tournament, not being beaten the whole year', and this just shows that the Despise will not end against the sisters, since if the play both they can't win everything, because one will lose, like Venus did this year, and therefore the HATERS(and yes u are haters) are going to jump on Venus.

But here is the question to an answer I am really really really looking forward too:
Shouldn't you be concerned with more of your faves results? Doesn't it not just look awful when you critisize a player that is above in ranking, popularity, slams,money, etc... then what is your fave?

All I hear is Serena beat up on Venus four times in a row. I don't hear many Jen fans say Serena beat up on her SIX times in a row.
Or Hingis before her absence being bruttaly beaten by the sisters before her absence. Or Lindsay's mental factor lately in not being able to win matches. Or Seles' fitness letting her down in later rounds of tournaments.
It is all the same, Venus that, Venus this. I would suggest u consider what u are posting, because it really shows a bad sign FOR YOU. you are, admit it, OBSESSED.
NO HOPE is left for another few years at all for you, your faves are being CRUSHED.

To My Fellow Williams Fans:
Venus & Serena have achieved what we all hoped for a while ago. They have achieved all that their father predicted. I can now watch matches with little nervousness, since I know that both of them have achieved so much, that they are happy, and that they will continue to win. I hope you have the same feeling as I do

Very nice done and to the point too,superdevil! All the critiscism and the bla bla bla: They are arrogant, the don´t play enough, they´re boring! And all the while the sisters keep breaking records and setting new standards for tennis perfection!! That´s why I love them!! They don´t care!! They know me, you, and everybody else knows that they are the best! And when they stop: no problem. Serena: I´ll act and you Venus? Venus. I´ll design your house and decorate it!! Class all the way!!

Well since you brought it up and I'll continue on.

The main reason they are despised is because of their success. The #1 players are always hated for one reason or another.

Another reason they're despised is their Dad's eccentric behaviour.

Yet another is that as far as black players are concerned Venus and Serena didn't behave like the others. When Everett went out to Zina in her last US Open Zina was apologetic about it. Venus and Serena would never do that.

At this point it doesn't matter if they're despised because their tennis is now doing all the talking shutting up so many mouths.

I did not know that Zina had apologized for beating Evert. If she did that, then it was a really DUMB thing to do. More power to Venus and Serena. In the words of Tupac - "Keep your head Up".

Venus and Serena have been called animals before, you wouldn't be the first. It is out of prejudice, anger and Jealousy that you're espousing your hatred, but there's nothing that people like you can do to hurt those girls because they're a hundred percent hater proof for life.

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names can never hurt me.

Re: Why people despise Venus and Serena. My opinion.

I agree with the gist of your post - people are essentially jealous of the sisters. However i find this passage a little strange.

Over the past month we have confronted a constant barrage of threads analysing every point of Hingis' downfall - most started by Williams fans. In those threads we have been treated with some really choice pieces of prose about Hingis getting her butt kicked, how hopeless her case is and on and on and on.

There are constant threads about Monicas fitness or lack there of.

And going back a few months lets see the threads about Capriati's on court antics, and the constant shit that she cops for them. And last year we were forced to hear ad nauseum how she had never beaten Venus.

And Lindsay well sadly winning or losing she rarely attracts attention or debate She really is the games sleeping giant.

As for Venus' critics, well as with Hingis, there are always going to be detractors when you have been DOMINANT, and are no longer that dominant player anymore. I agree that some of these criticisms have been unjustly harsh, but it comes with territory that some people are going to rejoice in others downfall - its human nature. As a society we love to cut our tall poppy's down I'm afraid

So let us not make out that the Williams' are the only victim of board stupidity because it just simply isn't true. There are just as many Williams fans sharpening the knives in Hingis' absence as their are fans of other players laying into Venus.
