Hey I'm a fan of the sisters (a very serious one) but I do have other favorites so no way I would stop watching much less coming to post on this board.

Yes I will.:). I'm a fan of the sisters. But I'm even more of a tennis fan.

I watched before them and I'd watch after them. I just think I would return to being a casual tennis fan who really doesn't have any favorites.

Just as Serena re-ignited my interest in tennis when Steffi retired so too will my next "unknown" favorite when Serena decides to move on to other things...

There is a false misconception that Venus and Serena fans are not tennis fans and only fans of the "sisters"- in my case (and the case of most people I know) that is simply not true.

When Serena's taking a break or sitting a tournament out you can always find me wishing both Kim and Lindsay well.

I am not trying to dis their fans but it interests me to find their next choice.

I always thought momo was popular with S and V fans.

Venus and Serena were the reason why I started to follow tennis. They will always be my favorite players. But once they will retire I will be rooting for other players. For example, Eleni Daniilidou, Sharapova, Safina, Bovina, basically most of the young Russians :p

I started watching tennis when the sisters started playing but now that Im too deep in, i think Ill remain a fan. Kim, Maria K, Sprem, Maria Sharapova...all are good young players to root for after the sisters hang their rackets.

didn't you know Williams fans are the end all be all? ;) They need to know our motivations, what we think, why we are, and what will we do after V/S retire. :lol:

V&S are the reason I started playing and watching tennis.
It would be hard for me to stay as interested without them.

I'll still watch occasionally.

However, the only person I could really see myself getting
behind near the extent of them is Dani & Dinara.

Vera Zvonareva, and Elena Bovina's games interest me most aside from the Sisters, and I'd probably support Kim as well.

If Serena and Venus retired tomorrow I probably would not continue to watch tennis.

I would, but it wouldn't be nearly as much of my life as it is. I still thinks womens tennis is better to watch then mens, but I don't think I would make it a point to site down and watch matches, I would probably watch a little more casually. I get bored easily and only a few players are exciting to watch for me: Sharapova is fun because she is so balls to the walls, the WS but I don't know why, and Hantuchova for the same reason.

you know, it's sooooooo hard to find a player with a personality out there. as people, 99% of them bore me to death. i think of the top players, i would start supporting Momo more as she's the most interesting, but i guess Alicia Molik would be my fave if they went. i'm not too keen on women's tennis right now anyways.

of course I'd still watch tennis. I love the sport. I'd probably start following men's tennis more closely, because frankly the Federer-Roddick is starting to look like a new domination/rivarly on the men's side and that exictes me. I think the women need to get another *good* rivarly to be good again.

Anyways...yes, I'd still watch. Who would I root for? Sharapova, Davenport, Pierce...I have faves outside of Venus and Serena

With their outside interests, i do not expect them to be around for a very long time,

I love Lindsay Davenport and Jennifer Capriati, i also pray for Martina Hingis/Anna Kournikova to come back.

Why are you not too keen on women's tennis right now?

everyone is getting injured, two of the big personalities on tour (Hingis and Kournikova) are gone, it doesn't look like Seles plans to stay much longer, Davenport and Capriati will bow out soon, and to be honest, all these upcoming Eastern European players play the same way...some better than others, but the same way nonetheless.

I would definitely still watch tennis as i am a tennis fan over a Williams sister fan. I would support all my other faves (their in my sig ;))

My biggest fan Ginger would be heartbroken if I retired and would probably close down her website for good!
