A bit late for that, no? Now the bandwagon jumpers will have it easy. ;)

I don't think so. There's no reason to lie.

Jul 6th, 2002, 04:54 PM
I was rooting for Serena all the way, I have always rooted for her over Venus! :)

Jul 6th, 2002, 04:55 PM
I'm feel disappointed right now cause i was rooting for Venus.

Jul 6th, 2002, 04:56 PM
I was rooting for Venus. She's so classy and I know that she loves Wimbledon.

Serena was just too tough.

Jul 6th, 2002, 04:56 PM
Well another way for Venus fan, try to put Serena down...

You meant Wimbledon FINAL or Wimbledon TOURNAMENT???? :rolleyes:

Jul 6th, 2002, 04:57 PM
Love them both, but Venus has my heart.:)

I don't think this is putting Serena down at all. Some of us have a favorite. Venus happens to be mine.

Jul 6th, 2002, 05:05 PM
I was rooting for Serena, simply because she is the better player right now and deserved to win

Jul 6th, 2002, 05:05 PM
I don't jump on bandwagons.
I wanted VENUS to take down little sis. :)

OMG, A fight between Venus and Serena fans...LOL...
I was rooting for big sis because I want her to have the most most Wimbledon titles of all times...

Jul 6th, 2002, 05:08 PM
It's quite obivous that all Williams fans have a Venus preference... And they would all want a three-peat.. No need to rub on Serena fans faces..

Jul 6th, 2002, 05:08 PM

Now I am sad; though nicely sad, if there is such a thing.

Jul 6th, 2002, 05:09 PM
Venus :sad:.

Jul 6th, 2002, 05:09 PM
i thought i was indifferent - until venus started to lose. then i realise i love venus.

Jul 6th, 2002, 05:10 PM
i honestly wanted Venus to spank Serena's ass, lol, after losing to her twice this year ;) i have always supported Venus first, then Serena, and no need to jump the bandwagon here :p

It's pretty significant that there aren't many 'No Preference' votes. It just goes to show that people are starting to choose sides. The difference is that you will probably not hear a fan of either sister make a disparaging comment about the other sister. Yet, there will be a sense of rivalry. It's like the best of both worlds - no bashing but intense competition. The tennis world will have to reconcile itself with this new scenario because 1) the Sisters grow on people with their grace and class, and 2) they are bound to meet in many more Grand Slam and other finals ahead.

I knew Serena would win in the end. It was so obvious when I watched Venus's previous matches. Well done to both players, though ! :)

Jul 6th, 2002, 05:24 PM
Well said, Mr. Red. :)

Jul 6th, 2002, 05:27 PM
Venus--- no ifs, and, or buts....:sad: :fiery: :sad: :sad: :fiery:

Thanks, Mr. Rexx.

serena like always, the bandwagoner days are over :sad:;)

Jul 6th, 2002, 05:43 PM
Venus cause i picke her to win on Rolloīs race to the chase
but now Serena won :sad: i didnīt earned good points

Jul 6th, 2002, 07:21 PM
I don't have a favourite sister so I really didn't mind which one won.

Jul 6th, 2002, 07:36 PM
I'm for Venus. always have been, always will be.

The good thing about Venus losing today, is that it might be lighting a competitive fire under her towards Serena. The more she loses to Rena, the more aggressive she will become. IMO that spells trouble for Serena at the Open.

Jul 6th, 2002, 09:42 PM
I wasn't really fussed! :p

Where are the options for the over 35s invitation event? I think Virginia Wade is looking in a rich vein of form at the mo.

Venus, simply cos serena won the last granslam and i was cheering for her at the french, but venus hasn't won a granslam in a long time and wanted her to win, bit upset at serena at the mo.
Saying that though i was really upset at venus for spanking serenas butt at the us open.

I was rooting for Venus... but I certainly rooted for Serena at the French Open... so I was fair... ;)
