Uhm, did anybody else find this weird? (the more I watch the Serena/Kim match)

Ok, maybe I've just watched this match way too many times, but I've started to notice little weird things that were going on in the player's box. Did anybody else find it funny that Alexandra Stevenson kept touching Venus? Venus would give these little strange suprising looks to her. Then once, when the camera was on Venus between points, Alex reached down and stroked Venus's hair. Venus, again, turned around with a "why are you doing this" kind of look on her face. I don't know. It was just awkard to me.

Dammitt, Venus!!!

I don't understand why they hang around Alex at all.
Hopefully hanging around the Williams will rub off on her.

alex seems more like serena's friend. they are both total BAPS. venus has said that her only friends are her sisters and family. she was probably like girl get your hands off me.

Me neither. I don't like her. She looks so annoying and whiny. Hopefully, I'm wrong about her and she's a really nice person. But I read an interview that she did about a year or two ago, and I didn't find her likeable at all. Like I said, maybe I'm wrong.

Dammitt, Venus!!!

Hehe, yeah cybelle. Venus was like "I know you didn't just caress my hair....what the hell is wrong with you?" In a polite kind of way, if I might add. I got the impression that Venus didn't really want to be bothered with her that much. And yeah, she was just talking during the points while they were waiting to sit down. Now, she knows better than that.

Dammitt, Venus!!!

I don't think Venus was annoyed. It seemed to be like Venus just said like "What are you doing?" but in a cheerful manner, because she did smile.

Exuse me....I am not attacking Alex. Well....maybe a little, but not too badly. Anyway, I just thought it was weird the way she was acting towards Venus. I had not idea they were that close

OK, I get this I think. Alex must be a really touchy feely person and Venus is not. Alex shows emotions (excitement, nerves) by touching Venus. Venus hates it. I'm with Venus, I hate gratuitous affection from people I'm not really close to but when I react many people think I'm nuts!

I'm glad Alex is friends with Serena and her family, if anyone needs a role model of what a normal family acts like, it's Alex.

Alex seems like she is trying to live vicariously through the Williams.

If that was addressed to me, then yes that's basically what I meant. Also she never had a "present" dad or any siblings that I know of. I'd hate to think she thinks it's normal for realtives to run around accusing everyone of being lesbians that were red hot for you, etc LOL!

Unhealthy to have a parent who sit in on your interviews and make corrections. And a parent who doesn't allow you to go on dates unchaperoned at 21 years old.
