The Williams' Sisters - ok, yes they are sisters, but I think this hinders them from individual tennis accomplishments. They'll always be "the sisters", no matter how many slams they have won when they're done.

The Swiss Miss - yes she's Swiss... I guess I don't like this one because it's pretty boring - not very original.

Jennifer is such a fighter on court - ok, ... why does Mary Joe always say this? Aren't both players in a particular match 'fighting'?

Anna Kournikova - defined by looks rather than substance. Is this how shallow of a world we live in now?

The Belgians - ok, repeat after me: Kim Clijsters. Justine Henin. Individuals, not representational of an entire courties athletic accomplishments.

So! We don't have a problem with it.
