why some Lindsayfans are negative towards Venus and Serena

now this is not to cause controversy, but i do wonder! I mean it seems like when Venus and Serena are playing you are always for the other player, some of you guys will keep arguing with williams fans about pointless things, and just some of the things you have said don't seem to positive about them. I'm not saying its all of you, for example i know LindsayRulez(isn't it kyle? ) seems to be pretty positive and supportive towards the sistas. I mean of course if they are playing Lindsay we should be for Lindsay, but i know that when Venus and Serena are playing i want them to do good and win, like at Miami i wanted a williams final, at charleston, after Lindsay had lost, i had wanted Venus to win. Just want to know your thoughts.

Hi LindsayRocks89! I dunno if you're are refering to people from USA, but anyway I'm from Argentina and I'll reply your post.
I couldn't care less about Venus and Serena being from the US, I mean, that is not a reason why I would support a player. (If they are Argentinean YES, but that is a different story).
My special case with the sisters is that I like Serena, I find her an excellent champion and role model, whereas Venus I deslike her quite much. It is not something that can be explained, but that is the way it is.

Though I don't understand (if you are refering to people from many nationalities) why we should be say positive things about the sisters? If I like Kim, i'm not expecting many of the TOPs to like her.

now i understand if you don't like someone because of their attitude, and of course i wish Lindsay would have been the winner of the matches she lost to them, but to have that be the reason that you dislike a player isn't that kinda childish??

is that why to lindsayfans, is it because Lindsay lost important matches to the williams that you dislike them or is it because of things like say their personalities?

I said over and over that I hate Venus. I hate her because she is a big ugly bitch. End.
Not to stir up anything, because I like all Lindsay fans, but you are the one who completely abandoned Lindsay after she lost to Justine this year at the Australian and said you shouldn't be wasting your time rooting for her or whatever. And you do have Vera Zvonareva as your little avatar...if we should be questioning anyone's loyalty to Lindsay, shouldn't it be yours?

And if LindsayRocks89 roots for other players besides Lindsay (and obviously not against Lindsay), then what's the big deal? To me, you can only have one favorite. You can have others that you wish well for, but people who say "oh I have so many favorite players..." don't make sense to me.

thank you, of course i would never root aganist Lindsay, the reason i made this thread is to see why some Lindsayfans like Andrew don't like Venus and Serena and obviously i got my answer from him above

Vera has never beaten Lindsay. Vera is my princess, but I hate her right now because she sucks.

proves my point

Read her posts. People would think she is a bigger fan of Venus than Lindsay if she didn't have the name.
Hey yeah i cheer for Venus all the time, but hello when Lindsay is playing or there is a post on her, i will be the most crazy person cheering for her, and i will also defend her to my death, thats how much i like her, once again i don't even think you're a fan of her

LindsayRocks89: I dunno If you read my post, but you havent answered my question yet.
I still don't understand why you expect us to like the sisters? Is there any particular reason? I really don't understand this thread, i mean why some Lindsay fans are negative towards Venus and Serena, do you feel that us, Lindsay fans, are always rooting against the sisters? I mean, all of us i imagine, root against certain players, so why not the Williams sister?

some of you yes, seem like you never can say anything nice about them, and blame them for Lindsay not having a better career, shouldn't we just be happy for the wonderful career Lindsay has had so far, and whatever happens before she retires will just add to her amazing acomplishments, Hey if you don't like them then thats your opinion, i just wondered why you didn't, and from the posts of some Lindsayfans, i have got some very childish answers, and if that doesn't explain it then i guess you need to read what some posters have said

Hey, guys should we really be falling out amongst ourselves about Venus and Serena. Were here to support Lindsay through thick and thin, good and bad. I am not a big lover of the sisters but I don't hate them. I wish Lindsay could have won a few more of the matches they played but she didn't for various reasons and we have to accept that. I do not care for the sisters attitudes to other players but I do believe they have improved. I also don't like all the media hype about them but I am not going to be able to change that. I also think that if they do play more matches they are going to suffer more injuries, as the other top players have. I do think they only stayed at the top for the amount of time they did because they picked and chose when and where to play. Their talent and the obvious extra points from a number of grand slam wins helped to keep them there, but they are not on top now are they? I think when the protected rankings are finished over their previous injuries we shall really see who it No 1 and 2 in the world and I do expect a big fight with Kim and Justine for it, and if Lindsay can stay fit and trim she can join the battle too I am sure along with Amelie and Jen. I am not explaining this very well so I hope you can see what I am getting at. I must admit that whoever Venus and Serena are playing I support the opponent but mainly because I want to see other players come through!

this thread is getting out of hand...

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.
