View Full Version : Venus And Serena!

Firstly l would just like to comment on the disrespectfull comments made by Amelie, l was very hurt by the comments that she made, they were just uncalled for, if she wants to be a champion she should go back to France a learn how to be a gracefull loser! She has shown that she has no respect for herself and other players!
Secondly l wasn't suprised at the amount of support given to Amelie because we have seen it on several occasions and l'm starting to realise that Venus and Serena have gotten used to it and thats what makes them true champions. Listening to the commentators they always try to cover up the issue by saying "oh the crowd are cheering for the underdog, they want to see a reall tough match", this is clearly the opposite, they want to see Vee and Rena loose , it's plain and simple! Unfortunetly l do think racism plays a part , it really is sad because l really feel that Vee and Rena don't get the support and apprectiation they deserve! So not only do the sisters have to compete with an opponent but also with the crowds as well and they have done well but l'm sure it does hurt, when you are playing in your country and no one supports you! If Venus was playing in France against Amelie the crowd wouldn't start cheering for Venus, that would neevr happen! It's killing some players (Jennifer) the fact that Vee and Rena are dominating the game and it's funny because Serena is very nice and friendly to her opponents even Jennifer you can just see it in Jennifers eyes , ok l'm not saying they should become best friends but at least Serena makes an effort to be friendly! Lastly l seem to remember a certain Jennifer saying, " the only reason why the william sisters are number one and two is because there is no Lindsay and Martina", both players are back and have failed to make an impression against the william sisters!
