The Williams Sistaz Story: the best thing the sport has ever witnessed.

Two siblings from the slums dominating the sport is simply amazing. This is without a doubt the best thing that has ever happened in the sport.

Word!Two BLACK sisters come out of nowhere and dominate a white sport! Pretty good and pretty amazing.

Think Kim and Elke will be both no.1 or win a slam?!

Sarcasm is clearly not always the highest form of wit.

Yes, truly a remarkable story. However, I can think of a lot of great things the sport has witnessed. But I'm not so caught up in my own selfcreated hype, so I can actually see a bigger and much clearer picture.

I admit, I would have picked Rod Laver winning the Grand Slam twice, five years apart. Or possibly Martina Navratilova only losing on match in an entire year.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

What's this with the 'slums?
They were from a poor part of town - certainly not from white suburbia but that does not equate with 'slums'.
It might make it sound more interesting but get a grip.

How can an opinion be something that is "no doubt" true?

Or how about a Woman beating a former Men's Wimbledon Champion in the Astrodome?

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

I think it's a great story. Of course, there are also other great stories as well (including some amazing tales from the former eastern bloc) but the Williams are certainly one of the great stories.
