I find it much more extraorninary that two sisters from a family of five kids could produce the worlds best female tennis players. Belgium has 10million people.

Cmon, daforehand we all know the reasons why the belgians are hyped by the commentators vs. the sisters. It's self explanatory.:)

Belgian has 2 top 5 members while US only has 1. And how big is US compared to Belgian?? How about Russia?? Yeah that's self-explanitory.

Commentators have indeed commented on that too.

Commentators have been talking about the sisters extraordinary accomplishments for the last few years. Maybe they thought it was time for a new topic, particularly since Kim and Justine are currently playing and Venus and Serena are not.

cuz they are at the top of the game mate. when the sisters are back there, they will talk about them. it's not who they are, it's cuz they are at the top that they are interesting.
