There seems to be a lot of thread recently asking why Williams sisters are being ignored and in some cases even hinted that they are being disrespected.

I think it is pretty obvious why. This is coz Serena is not playing at the moment and Venus is still trying to find her top of the game yet again. Why is some people take it so personally that people no longer talked about Williams sisters. It is obvious that it will be conflicting their own interest if they keep on praising about Williams sisters when they are not playing don't you think?

When Williams sisters went back tot he top of the game, we will see commentators talk about them again, until then people whould realise that it is not that we have forgotten about the sisters already, we are just waiting to talk about how great they are again until they start playing and dominating like they use to.

Maybe because Justine and Kim are worldnumber 1 and 2 while Serena is injured and Venus performed that great yet.I don't know just a wild guess :rolleyes:

Anyway, I can't watch a women's match on ESPN without hearing the commetators talk about the WS. I wish they wouldn't talk about them and focus on the players who are playing, but.................

Answer to the question: because Venus and Serena are not able to be at the top right now.

Uh i have to get on the train and say huh? The sisters are the most talked about duo in tennis. I have not seen any indication they are being ignored.

I mean hell Serena is not even playing and I hear about her all the time. Everything from the tragedy of her older sister to her furs and her public appearances.

Believe me they are not being ignored.

Wait. Is this a trick question?

The Williams sisters are "old news" simple as that.
Venus "average joe" Williams can't get past round 3 and Serena is afraid to play.What's there to talk about?

It's funny how some of you play "dumb". Oh wait, in your case, you don't need to play anything. :tape:

You all know what wongqks is talking about. Well said, wongqks! :)

omg this is a dumb thread. no1 is talking bout serena and venus coz they r both injured and when venus does play she just ends up forfeiting due to another injury :rolleyes: and as kim and judy jetson r number 1 and 2 atm, they r getting talked about.

and dont just limit urself to talking bout the lack of discussion concerning the williams sisters, what about capriati? she frequently took sets off serena, without capitalising though, and won a few grandslams and she's ranked higher than serena and venus now and she also hasnt played in quite a while!

get well jen! :bounce:

Question what does VW and SW stand for? Is this tennis related?

Well seriously talk about Williams doesn't exist anymore, apart from Serena went to this and to that blah. It was a joke but apparently it's not even tennis related anymore

When did I say that? Rtael asked how I knew about medications...I said being a Librarian is one reason, cause we can look up whatever we want when we want....That didn't mean I was at work just that I can look up whatever I want. I can do it from home or work..

but I understand what you mean now....

And yes I have the autonomy in my job to surf the net as I please it's one of the reasons I chose my job...:)

If you look at it noone really talks about Justine and Kim but the commentators and the reporters in Belguim. So, who cares? They are the #1 and #2 players right now .

However, I have not seen all these THREADS on the board where posters are saying the Williams sisters are not talked about enough. You hear about the sister's when they are on the court and off the court, and some folks cannot handle that, you can tell by reading some of the idiotic responses in this thread.

No one is talking about them, because they ainīt winning..so they canīt be critisized.

Just like that, there ainīt much the press can critisize now...save for them taking too long perhaps?!

They need to talk about maueresmo more. I could care less about the Williams I think they ruined tennis by turning it into a game of smashing the ball. They have no finesse or art in their games whatsoever.

Yeah..I know. I just don't understand why Richard didn't use those instructional videos featuring the racquet wizardry, deft shot making, seemingly limitless arsenal of shots demonstrated by Lindsay Davenport.

They have no finesse or art in their games whatsoever.Cause God up and gave it all to that principal ballerina of a tennis player L. Davenport... so fleet of foot, and bubbling-over with finesse and artistic wonder.

The game of tennis has passed the W/sisters by so its ok for people to talk about other players who are obviously better than them .........The W/S (and their fans) think they are still in 2001-2002 but i guess its time they "woke up" and realised that they aren't the best any longer !

Williams-free commentating...

Nice to not have to hear about the pack hunting the Williams down to eat challenge them for a change. If any of you have the Rubin/Davenport JPMorgan Chase Open final on tape.. watch it.. more importantly, listen to it..Pam/Mary Joe/Navaratilova commentating... you will see what I mean.
