...if Serena will be nominated for Athens and Venus has to stay at home? :confused: I know it`s just a small "chance" but reading all the speculations about the possible US team some of you seem to think only the Williams could reach fame and glory in Greece.

Jen and Lindsay as well as Lisa/Martina are great champions. Don`t forget them!!! :fiery:

I can see you weren't aiming for 'thought provoking' with your question to Williams' fans- as for me, I sit back and cheer Serena on and wish Venus the best of luck in doubles.

Sigh...if only 1 is their I'm happy just as long as there is just one. Besides you forgot to mention Chanda...and besides Jennifer won't be aloud to play because she hasn't played a Fed Cup match and that's a requirement to play the Olympics.

Also, if you are even trying to say that Martina/Lisa are a better doubles team then Venus and Serena you are very much mistaken.

Shenay Perry, too...

The 4th can be Dewonder Davis, Becky Brown, Amy Dillingham... either way, I'll be pleased.

Plear, never said that. Just got the impression some Williams fans don`t want Jen to be nominated. Some of your comments e. g. sounded like: "We have the Williams, they will win, we don`t need anyone else."

Someone said a player has to make herself available for Fed Cup ties. That`s what Jen did, so she will play Athens. It`s also possible that Zina nominates Chanda instead but you can`t say Jen isn`t allowed to play because of not playing Fed Cup.

To all Williams fans - I know it is a minority because each person knows that his/her fave will lose matches, no matter who it is - who think, Venus and Serena are unbeatable: At Athens there will be many good players: Serena, Venus, Jen, Lindsay, Henin-Hardenne, Clijsters, Mauresmo etc. and they all could win Gold. I know, it is the best case and Clijsters will possibly not play but the win of the medals will be a close race. :wavey:

Isn't going to happen unless Venus is injured!

Venus hinted in 2000 she wouldn't be as willing to go w/o
Serena and I'm sure Serena would return the favor,
though I very much doubt their'd be any need.

If you didn't want to provoke anyone you would have started with the fact that Venus and Serena are two different people. They may be sisters but they are individuals, and they do have individuals fans. Not every fan is a "Williams" fan but some are just "Serena" fans and some are just "Venus" fans. Generalizations and lumping together for the sake of generalizing never works with me.

To answer your question, if only Serena goes, I'll root for Serena just like Venus would root for Serena.
