All the while the answer to their quest has been right under their very noses: VENUS & SERENA WILLIAMS.

Andre Agassi - When he was younger, Agassi was the flashy, rock star like player with the long hair, neon-colored shorts and always photographed with celeberty babes.

SERENA WILLIAMS - The 'Catman' of tennis, who is usually at the big celeberty events, being photograhed with stars and very outgoing.

Pete Sampras - Pete was and is very workmanlike in his craft and rarely showed any outward emotion whetere he was winning or losing.

VENUS WILLIAMS - VENUS, always graceful, stately and stoic with what may be the biggest and strongest heart in tennis in relation to her determination in winning big time matches.

The WILLIAMS are the real "next big thing" in tennis, not an unproven, undisciplined and much overhyped Andy Roddick.

Of course, this appreciation for VENUS & SERENA may not come in their own time, as even foreigners are a little stunned at the lack of fan support the WILLIAMS receive at most U.S. events.

Though this rivalry may not last as long as previous rivalries, it may be counted as one of the best when all is finally said and done.

TR :cool:

Venus had a bad hair day in the semis ;)
