Why are Williams fans so obsessed with....

Why are Monica Seles fans so obsessed with her? If itís not the stabbing, itís her poor results of late, and her private life. Geesh gave the girl a break why donít you!

I don't know why Williams fans are obsessed with Monica.

Maybe it's because Serena's matches are so short, they need to preoccupy themselves with other thoughts to keep it interesting.

I really dont understand the question......

I didnt know that William's fans were 'obsessed' with Monica, HOW SO?

And the second part of your post seems to say that why are Monica's fans 'obsessed' with her???

As one of her fans, I lover her never die attitude. Thats how she's always been ,one hell of a fighter. I wouldnt say Im 'obsessed' by any means...If you cant see those characteristics in her than...

Come back EVENTUALLY Cappy!! Ok this clearly was written back in a day when I still had faith..

I'm not sure I comprehend your question but this is the way I understand it:

This thread has nothing to do with the Williams sisters or their fans. This is directed at Seles fans. Why are they obsessed with her? Because she is their favourite, she is the player they admire and/or feel a connection to. I don't fault them for continually thinking of the stabbing because it was a tragedy. Personally it still gives me an unsettling feeling that not only was she attacked while doing something she loves but a fan of a sport that I've followed religiously for many years was so obsessed with his own favourite player, he wanted to make certain that she regained the #1 ranking.

Gosh, that's confusing, but I think Williams fans don't really care about why Monica fans are obsessed with her, just my opinion...

I'm obsessed, but rational and I see nothing wrong with it. I do see something wrong with your question... like, it doesn't make any sense. There's nothing comparable to Williams' and Seles fans, and neither faction cares about the other really. No dislike, just two symbiotic groups.

Hi! You're weird...

but anyways, Monica fans aren't obsessed with "her poor results of late" most of us try not to think too much about them so honey... It ain't an obsession.

And... Who says all Monica fans are obsessed? But I'm crazy about her because she's entertaining to watch, seeing a Seles smile brightens up my day, she's a sweet person and a great competitor. Ooooh and I'd do her any day of the week.

You're just tryin' to cause some trouble and 90% of Monica fans I know here won't rise to it. Just like our "obsession" we have class.

Thanks!

I'm only obsessed about Serena Williams fans (but not Venus Williams fans) who are obsessed about Justine Henin fans who are obsessed with fans who are obsessed about Andre and Steffi playing mixed doubles and who are ALSO obsessed about Kim Clijsters's fans who are...

deep breath

obsessed with Kim's relationship with Lleyton (and whether or not they will get married) and who are ALSO obsessed about Monica Seles fans who are not obsessed about Monica in any way, but are, in fact, obsessed with Monica's dog, Ariel.

I' totally don't understand the topic of this thread at all, so I felt compelled to come in and share my obsession!

I'm a huge fan of both the Williams AND Monica. I'm obsessed! They are my faves and I don't only go by what they did today, or last week. I look at their accomplishments throughout their careers and their lives...and I'm obsessed. I love them because they are strong and confident women who believe that there are no limits to their potential. They inspire me to strive for my best. I love them because they run down every shot on and off the court. They are my role models in life, reminding me that I need to run down all of my shots as well. I love them because they have this energetic girly, giggly side to them that they share with us every so often. I love them because they raise the bar in their game by playing awesome tennis with their minds and hearts, and that motivates me to live my life passionately. I love their grunt, all modelled after the original Monica grunt that I love so much. I am almost the same age as Monica and growing up, she was my tennis heroine. She made me an avid fan with her sheer enthusiasm, dominance and giddy attitude. She made tennis cool. I lost some interest in the mid-90's but then Venus and Serena brought me back to the game with their wonderful presence and determination. I am obsessed with them because these are the three of the best tennis players to have graced this game and I feel fortunate to be such an active part of this amazing history. They are beautiful and gracious girls who are wonderful ambassadors for the sport. Yes, I'm obsessed with Monica, Venus and Serena. So what?!
