Damn, it's a GOOD time to be a fan of the. . .

. . . .Williams Sisters.

There are about 5948594859409120 million good reasons, but I have a freestyle list of my own:

-Best players in the world
-Two of the most talked about athletes ever
-On any given message board at any given time, @ least 50% of the threads are going to be about them.(almost 80% on this board.)
-love them or hate them- nobody can really be neutral-Since they have been playing the game, they have always been in major contention of EVERY tournament they played-their poise is inspirational in how they deal with harsh criticism
-their love for family
-their love each other
-Serena is the most visible and most famous #1 player - ever
-their winning attitude
-their unapologetic attitude
-their beautiful smiles when questioned about lack of crowd support.
-their serves
-their groundstrokes
-their returns
-their finesse
-Even when they don't win, they assure their fans that everything is "ok"
-their crazy ass fans
-passionate haters who will stop at nothing but to criticize them
-their championships
-their game faces
-charity work
-their fashion
-their style
-positive outlooks on life are incredible. Even when this thread turns to something negative by the "villagers", this Williams fan will still smile


Damn, it's just a good feeling being a Williams fan
I LOVE IT!!!!!

lol, when was it a bad time to be a fan of the 'Williams sisters'?
If you think there ever was one, try being a fan for a day of any lower ranked inconsistent wonder for a change.

It is always good to be a fan of the williamses.....try being a fan of Alex.......talk about grey hair......

When I think of life, sometimes my response is "Oh Damn!". But I still think of life anyway, "Oh Damn!!!"

It 's time to be a Justine-fan: cause she shows she can cope the aggressive power with slice, topspin and technique :love:
It's time to be a Kim-fan: cause she shows that you don't need a GS, you don't need to beat the sisters to become the world number one

Indeed. But ergo, if you're not a fan of the Williams sisters, it's a very BAD time to be a fan of women's tennis. And also a bad time to be on a message board that positively reeks of smug self-satisfaction.

It's just easy to be a fan of the best player in the world. I like excitement.

Hendouble,
Today, I AM smiling with smug satisfaction. . . .

My players fought there way up the ranking and have established themselves as the most feared in the game.

I'm sure you are. But for the 80% of people who aren't Williams fans, generating any kind of interest or enthusiasm for women's tennis is a bit of a tall order at the moment. And yet it's still more popular than the men's - unbelievable...

Exactly. Maybe you could explain why some of your fellow fans still do nothing but whine about how put-upon Venus and Serena are, then?

Oh, and as a Venus fan, I can safely say that being one is highly crappy right now. Damn little sisters.

I prefer smug-self satisfied Williams supporters (annoying as some may be) over those who bitch, whine and moan when anyone who isn't a Williams fan says something not entirely positive about their faves
