I don't think you can be a real fan of either without at least have complete respect for the other - you don't have to like the other - but some people show disrespect towards the other sister and ultimately if you disrespect one you disrespect both. I think that's how they'd see it themselves given that they just couldn't be closer.

I disagree.

I actually like both, but they are COMPLETE individuals. And have totally different attitudes on and off court. Just because they are close, doesn't mean we have to like both.

I like Serena much more than Venus because of the difference in their technique and style of tennis but most of all the intensity and mentality of her performances. Serena is my only real WTA favourite whilst Venus I merely respect in the same way I do a Rafa or Djokovic.

Venus body is bad in terms that her height gives her disadvantage on forehand technique which was has been an issues through her career it does give her advantage in the way she has adapated it (unlike other tall players) to become a great athlete and mover.

Serena did have a perfect body for tennis as in it helped her technique more than Venus whilst still giving the footspeed and athleticism but it was also a body type that was incredibly hard to maintain especially once weight was put on...

It's just like asking is there anyone who likes Justine Henin but dislikes Serena Williams? :shrug:

Serena Williams and Venus Williams are two completely different people and players. There is no reason to like them both unless you just happen to like both of them (just like I happen to like Ivanovic & Bartoli).

It doesn't make you any less of a fan if you only like one of Serena or Venus. Actually it probably makes you a better fan because you like them for them, not for who they're sisters with.

I understand why people had a problem with them in the past, because they came across a little cocky. But, I think they felt like they had to be because of the sport and some the racial issues they experienced. However, I don't know how anybody can really not like Venus, because she is more humble and nice. Venus is my favorite, but I like Serena too. Like others have said, they are different people.

The one thing that annoys me slightly about Venus is that I think she tends to ignore racism to much. Serena seems to see racial injustices the way I see them and speaks out more openly about them. I like that.

Jessie181
Jan 8th, 2009, 03:55 PM
Venus is my favourite player. I think the difference between Venus and Serena, in terms of personality, is that Venus tends to get passionate during huge matches (2005 Final comes to mind), whereas Serena is always passionate. She just comes off as "too much" for me. I'm the type of fan who likes to see players get spirited/passionate during huge matches and not all the time.
Venus is also, generally, more gracious in defeat than Serena. I think that's because Serena's used to winning so much that she doesn't know/hasn't properly trained herself how to be gracious enough in defeat. I respect Serena for what she has achieved in her career, though.

Venus is probably one of my favourite players, while I don't care for Serena at all. It's probably a matter of attitude. While I like controversial players, Serena just seems somewhat childish to me.
Same here. When she loses, she's quite childish at times.

Jan 8th, 2009, 04:23 PM
I agree with jessie.

Serena screaming Cmon's in Us Open R1 in front of her home crowd against the 189974th of the world is not nice, nor necessary.

Shawn
Jan 8th, 2009, 04:23 PM
i like both of them but i do prefer Venus. Serena is childish, Venus is classy. Even their own father has said that Venus is a classy lady. I find by going to the US Open and the Sony Ericsson Open over the years that people are more drawn to Venus, they have gotten tired of Serena's antics. However, they are still both huge superstars and great champions and if one doesn't win, I want the other to.

I think it really just depends on the type of player your drawn to. Venus over the years has always been much more reserved and mellow on the court, and rarely shows too much emotion, but has a very harnessed intensity. Where as Serena, as she has shown over the years is much more of performer, and knows how to put on a show. Venus matches, are a lot more straight forward and uncomplicated, whereas with Serena, there are a lot more twists and turns that happen in her matches. Gamewise, I think I've always been more drawn to Serena, because along with the showmanship she brings in a match, I think her stroke production and ground game is more fluid and sound than Venus's, like she showed against sharapova in the finals. However I still respect them both equally.

Oddly enough I respect Venus more for her tendency to go after any social injustice in tennis or outside of it.
I sometimes wish Serena would do more, she's more vocal when something pertains more to her while Venus thinks about the bigger picture.

I like Serena more though because of her gamestyle on the court.
You can always tell when it's deep in a tourni that she wants it, no matter the errors.
She knows how to win ugly and I don't think that Venus has that ability down like Serena.

Pre-2005-Indifferentbut when they played against eachother Serena

2006-Liked Serena better
2007-Liked Venus better
2008-Liked Serena better

In the long run I think Serena wins for me.

Venus all the way. I can't stand drama queens such as Serena and lately Ivanovic with all those fist pumps.

However many of these comparisons are born with Venus because she is always saying that she gets inspiration from Serena's wins, she couldn't do it without her, etc. I hate that, even if it is true.

you've really hit the nail on the head. this constant mutual co-dependent interplay that they have going is why i've always thought of them as a duo and not as two separate individuals. i'm quite surprised to find that so many posters have answered "yes" to my thread's question.

Could you please make sense.

Are you saying people over 6ft, tall have a disadvantage? Federer, Nadal, Joker, Becker, Lendl, ?????

"I like Serena more though because of her gamestyle on the court.
You can always tell when it's deep in a tourni that she wants it, no matter the errors.
She knows how to win ugly and I don't think that Venus has that ability down like Serena."

I would guess you haven't been watching tennis very long.
see.. Pilot Pen 01 beat Henin, Capriati, and Davenport in a 24 hr span, then went on to win the Us Open w/out dropping a set(with a cold).

You have no idea what you are talking about.:tape:

Serena's tenacity has my respect, especially after that Wimbly match in '07 against Daniela.
