The tennis careers do not last forever. Even Martina Navratilova retired one day. Some players got their jobs in national tennis federations, some became tennis coaches. I bet Serena and Venus will not spend the rest of their lives outside media attention. So here is the question. Will they become actresses, fashion designers, singers, rap stars or maybe will be just cheap celebrities and do a new tandem a la Afroamerican version of Kardashian sisters? :lol: What's your opinion on this? :)

Serena will do acting and rapping, Venus will do interior designing and the occasional charity work. Then later, they'll become directors of a tournament and a stadium will be named after one of them.

Probably continue to do the things they've been doing outside of tennis. They will be remembered as the greatest Sister act in tennis who dominated the game at one time, changing the game of tennis........LEGENDS. ;) They have served us proud...the African American community have them on such a high pedistal. It will be one sad day when they retire....i'll have my box of tissue ready for that day lol. I LOVE THOSE GIRLS....they are the ONLY reason why I started watching tennis.

^Well you can use the tissues right here and now and get a live. Don't think any exitement is coming to us from this particular direction anytime soon. All that african-american BS is quite pathetic imo. We're all here and there whichever way you look at it.

venus seems to be a bit more motivated and will keep her pulse on fashion lines and the business within that industry.

Serena will eat a lot of McDonalds annd get fat and Venus will design shitty clothes that no one will wear.

V&S blasted for actually having lives outside of tennis. And now some want to dump on them
for what they have already set up to be doing after tennis(of which even that ill evolve)?

Well hey, they could be like some clinging onto tennis for dear life out of fear and having
nothing else in their lives outside of tennis. Oh well, to each his/her own. :cool:

Or they can join other celebs who are making money just for being famous :shrug:

serena is a businesswoman - having seen her on QVC she is a natural when it comes to selling product. and her line sells out consistently. i'm not worried about them- they seem bred for success.

Then we have seen athletes blow their absurd amount of money like it is nothing. Money that regular folks could never imagine losing in a lifetime let alone a few years.

One thing I am sure off; unlike Martina Nav, they will not hang around tennis.

Venus already has a company to run, Serena has her multi ventures.
Serean may alos become motivational speaker on how to will yourself to win

Serena could probably make appearences as guest commentator on US TV during GS, but that will not be her full time job.

I know what you meant. I was wondering why you needed to find an example (of Martina) to back up such a controversial thesis (that tennis players retire). But no bad feelings!

Creating ugly dresses? :tape:

That also puts Venus at a higher risk to lose all her money like other athletes, who founded and financed companies without the required talent or business knowledge. Serena is probably just going to enjoy life, do some endorsement for Nike, some failed acting attempts and some guest commentary at big events in between.

too bad that her interior design company is doing well

they will do whatever they feel like doing. Money will never be a problem for them so i bet that they are going to continue to do what they already started while playing tennis

They'll open up a chicken & waffles joint called Vee's & Ree's.

Venus will quietly get on with her interior design stuff or whatever, but eventually she will have a second career in politics...how about Senator Venus Williams of Florida!!

Serena will have her own chat show called 'Serena', sing and act, but to no great acclaim. She will do 'Dancing With the Stars' and get voted out in the first round like Seles and Hingis. But around 2014 her engagement to Prince Harry will be announced, the following year they will get married in St Paul's Cathedral, her dress will be one of her own designs and she become HRH the Duchess of Sussex. It will be the first royal wedding where the bride tweets during the ceremony!! :lol:

They're two of the highest ever money earners in the sport. Not including sponsorships or the money they get from their businesses. They'll do what ever the hell they want.
