The Tennis press, the Williams sisters and the tour
All of us who love tennis should cry out to the press to stop their biased coverage of the William sisters.
The William sisters are here to stay. They were criticised for not playing enough. They are now playing a lot more and thereby achieving their full potential. In the process the networks especially and the tennis world as a whole are benefitting.
The fact is that if Venus and Serena continue to play more, they will maintain their number 1 and 2 ranking for a while yet! There is therefore a very high chance that they meet in the finals.
The press must now realise that they have a choice.
To sell Venus and Serena to the public OR to continue to put them down and thereby have nothing to sell!! Most people do not know Venus and Serena they only know what the press has written about them.
If all the press writes are negative insinuations about their matches then WTA should not be suprised when they find themselves with precious few who want to watch them.
Venus and Serena have earned their positions and have every right to be in the final. They are not going to be intimidated by negative press. Only the tour stands to suffer!!
