Does anyone think that the Williams sisters have introduced a new way of dealing with injuries?

Before, top players would always play full schedules (often injured). Since Venus and Serena have started to play less events (looking at the 'long term' effects of play on their bodies) other (top) players have started to do the same (JennCap,Justine,Amelie). I have also noticed that players are less willing to play through injury ect. as Graf was known to do in the past.

Not at all.. I don't think the other players playing less or dealing with injuries is at all related to Serena and venus taking six months off for their injuries.. They were doing other things, the other players heal and are right back.

Oh please...Lindsay and Chanda were out for six months or more when they had their surgeries. Please don't invent stories. :fiery:

The players that came before Serena and Venus had no lives outside of tennis!! :tape:
venus and Serena were taught that a player can have a tennis career and still not lose their childhood or lives in the process. I for one am happy that Serena and Venus have lives outside of tennis, otherwise they'll end up like Martina N. and a lot of the former players who are trying to make comebacks or commentating because they never developed other skills that can be used after their tennis career is over! :tape:
Even if some player realized that Serena and Venus's decision to not play with an injury and giving themselves enough time to heal completely is a smart decision that will add longevity to their careers, none of them will ever admit it because of their resentment towards Serena and Venus. It's sad really!!

All the same, even with V & S "doing other things" they still have done pretty well for themselves. Something obviously works.

the same people who hate Venus and Serena for pulling out with minor injuries will be worshipping the future players who will realize that isnt worth playing through injury

I've really questioned your lack of intelligence enough. You've answered that question tenfold. How can you not spell a name correctly that's right in your face? Hopefully Lindsay is smarter than some of her fans.

Hmmm... folding up after seeing the draw. Well let us look at records. Venus, and Serena were beating the rest of the field, Lindsay included before they left with injuries. They aren't afraid of anybody. The only people up to snuff are Justine and Kim. You can't even get that right.

Not that there is anything wrong with milking what you got..but its just obnoxiously superficial and balsy to put down the other 1,000 plus players on tour by saying they HAVE NO LIVES outside of tennis and the williams can half heartidly take part in tennis and still be no 1 and no 2 while the other girls MUST concentrate 110% on TENNIS AND ONLY TENNIS to even be competitive with the sistas ! :lol: :lol: Its has gottin to the point that everytime someone says this the real tennis fans in the country become even more anti "williams" ..only the "williams" have lives outside of tennis..work that million dollar publicity machine richard. :lol: :devil: G'night ;)

What is your source that they have a high powered publicist to make sure the whole world knows about their every move? :scratch:
I was under the impression that they were so popular in bringing women's tennis back to life that the world was just interested in what they were doing. But, wow :p you've made me see the light. :rolleyes:
