It seems like all my gay friends and I really like the Williams Sisters. I guess that's consistent with gay guys really supporting strong, diva types.

How about yall?

This gay man can't stand the Williams sisters, i guess they just rub me up the wrong way... My favourites are Henin-Hardenne, Mauresmo, Maleeva, Benesova & Daniilidou. In the past Navratilova, Edberg and Noah !!!

Williams X2, period. I don't consistently root for anyone else. If one of the my girls loses early I root for the other and if they both go out I usually force myself to watch the rest of the tournament. They're the single reason I started watching tennis (well, women's tennis) and the reason I continue to watch. If I didn't consider Sharapova their main rival I might be a fan of hers...but her shrieking does get on my nerves a bit. I know the sisters grunt too but it's not as high pitched and torturous to me.

As for the boys, SAFIN (obviously) FERRERO (who i've met) and Federer b/c he's just amazing.

Very few gay boys like the Williams sisters, I think because gay men are shallow in general and find the sisters' extra testosterone more, say, amusing and ridiculous than praiseworthy.

I guess it depends on who you are.

All my gay friends love
them.

They love Serena's diva like
persona and her outrageous outfits!

The catsuit especially, and
last years attire at the US Open.

And Venus' supermodel body.

deja, that had to be the most ridiculous thing you've said.

Way to Stereo-type AND discredit two amazing tennis players at the same time.

BTW, that whole debate over who's greater HINGIS or VENUS? I think it's been settled.

I Love Jill Craybas, Mashona Washington, Melien Tu, Chanda Rubin, Mary Pierce, Maggie Maleeva, Amy Frazier, Maureen Drake and Na Li to name a few.

but if I had to pick....I'd say Venus over Serena. Too much drama with those girls..:)

Jul 14th, 2005, 03:51 AM
From today's bunch I really like:
Sharapova, Serena, Venus, Myskina

From the past I loved:
Hingis, Seles (although I hope she keeps playing), Evert, Goolagong, Court, Wade, King, Richey, Austin, Connolly, Lenglen (although I have only seen some of these on video).

But my all time favourite would have to be the campest and most feminine player in history - Francoise Durr. :) I have never really warmed to the masculine ones. lol

I'm a gay man, and I love the Williams sisters. They're awesome. I love how Serena is so emotional on the court.

I also love Kim Clijsters, Lindsay Davenport, & Alicia Molik.

I like Dementieva, Schnynder & Capriati.

I don't really like Justine Henin-Hardenne or Svetlana Kuznetsova.

From the past, I love Hingis, Seles & Evert.

I am American, and I seriously wish we Americans could get more exposure to foreign players. I really want to know more about some of the ladies, but it's hard to watch their matches because all the famous girls get priority on ESPN. Hopefully this will change once I can afford the Tennis Channel? Or am I delusional?

Faves of all time and current;

Evert
Sabatini
Temesvari
Hingis
Sharapova

Personally, can't stand the Williams sisters. They are just two fake diva wannabes. Their "fashion sense" is horrendous (as evidenced by Serena's homemade ESPY dress). They wanna be supermodels but don't have the bodies nor the looks for it (maybe Venus' body). I will admit that their raw athleticism on court is breathtaking, but the rest of their games is just ugly.

I really don't like Williamses at all, specially Serena : In French, I'd say she looks like a "Poulet aux hormones" ("Hormonal Chicken").

My favorites are : Hana Mandlikova, AMelie Mauresmo, Tracy Austin, Mary Pierce, Jana Novotna, Daniela Hantuchova, Bettina Bunge, Andrea Temesvari, Monica Seles, Jenn Cap...

The Williamses "Diva type" never hurt me, anyway!

I'm a big old-school tennis fan.
the russians, before they even knoew it -
Smashnova, Likhovtseva, Tolyaganova, Panova.
total athletes that could excell in swimming, running, pole-vualting - you name it, because they were raised as athletes first, humble, polite, representive - and only then as tennis players - Stars that is.
I also like special qualities - Bartoli's double handed on both sides, Mauresmo's grass/clay abbilities, Dementieva's ability to win with that serve of hers, Smashnova for bieng the best ranked player in the world with no power at all, Coetzer for practically inventing counter-punching tennis, Date for that amazing story about her hands, players that come from and promote tennis in countries where tennis is almost not an option - Randrianteffy, vento-kabchi, Ipek and others.
The best of them all was Graf. The first of them was Smashnova.
I appriciate alot ot players, Every match brings out a fave from me. I don't go blind for any name whatsoever.
I have nothing special for the williams. of the stars of the few years i prefer the russians and momo.

And you don't call the sisters underdogs. I would say that Serena and Venus are underdogs in the entire WTA and you as a gay person should know that since they actually go through the same discrimination you go through.

No I've never been a fan of the william sisters or any American player really.

I feel like players from other countries have something extra/different. I don't know what it is. I luv obviously Kournikova, Hantuchova, Dokic, Pierce, Myskina, Dementieva. But my ultimate faves are the playes that make the game look attractive, which would be the first 3 imo

mr_burns
Jul 14th, 2005, 11:42 AM

I am still a fan of Martina Hingis, Anna Kournikova, Steffi Graf and Natasha Zvereva.

I respect and admire the Williams sisters but honestly cannot say that I would go out of my way to watch them play unless they played a high quality opponent like any of my faves, another Top 20 player or any of the young guns. I am amazed at their physical strength, power, mental strength and tenacity. Most people also overlook the fact that Venus and Serena are both good tacticians. From what I've seen, it's not all about hitting hard but about moving their opponents around and making them play uncomfortable shots before going in for the kill. I know some people will disagree but that's their opinion for whatever reason.

Love Chris Evert, who was the first player I followed when I started watching tennis, Raffaella Reggi, first italian I admired for her great attitude, Sanchez Vicario, Zina Garrison, and recently Silvia Farina Elia. There are many more, but it would be too long to write all names down...I just love this sport :wavey:

That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. From my experience, gay white men get along with black women much better than straight white men. At least in the Southeast of the USA. Many gay white male American tennis fans like the Williams sisters. Certainly not all, but many.

The only thing in this thread that surprises me is the fact that so many people like Mary Pierce. Diff strokes, diff folks, I guess.

Have to admit I chuckled a bit when someone said they don't like any American players because they lack that "something special", and then named Mary Pierce as a favorite. (Yeah, yeah, I know she's "French" LOL) I am not laughing at you, by the way, just laughing at Mary Pierce.

I see a trend. Either you love or you hate the WS. Most of the posts not only say they don't like the WS, but also for some reason feel the need to insult them in some form or another. I'm not saying that all of you who don't care for the sisters did this, but most did, which is totally unnecessary. It's not being done to any other player in this thread.

From what I've seen, it's not all about hitting hard but about moving their opponents around and making them play uncomfortable shots before going in for the kill. I know some people will disagree but that's their opinion for whatever reason.
Very nice. :worship:

i dont appreciate deja_whatever your name is speaking for "most gays" you hardly can speak for yourself obviously so dont attempt to speak for others.
I am a huge williams fan and they are the reason i watch women's tennis. the only other girl on tour i like is kim because she is so nice. The williams tell it like it is and handle their business.

Oh and i am white too so please dont tell me i am intimidated by a black woman.

some people are so stupid.

Well, all time favourites are Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario and Monica Seles.

But I also like - Justine Henin-Hardenne, Martina Hingis, Steffi Graf, Mary Pierce, Martina Navratilova, Gabriela Sabatini, Lindsay Davenport, Ai Sugiyama and Conchita Martinez, Elena Dementieva and Maria Sharapova.

I can't say I'm a Williams sisters fan at all though, BUT I do normally like either a fighter like Arantxa, Monica, Justine or a diva like Mary, Martina, Maria etc. The reason I don't like the Williams as much, is not because I don't like them, but because I do like Hingis, Sharapova, Arantxa, Justine etc. and the Williams' sisters are their cheif rivals.

I'm a gay man & I think the Williams sisters are lovely, a bit abrasive at times but both charming and humble (at least during interviews).

The stereotypical gay male attitude to the sisters I would imagine would be admiration for their diva like personalities and dress sense.

But some posters here have very weird gay friends who seem to hate black girls, especially strong minded ones. I would imagine logic dictates they are an unpleasant minority.

-and while it would be great if all minorities stuck up for each other, this is rarely the case. Human nature really. :/
