Feeling maudlin. Thus .... (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FMRmbWnsMMk)

Let's face it, Venus is closer to the end, rather that the beginning, of a great career. She and Lil' Sis could go on wining doubles titles for another decade, but Venus' star turn had lasted over a decade, and most don't get that.

I rooted like hell for BJK when Evert came along.
I rooted like hell for Nav when Graf came along.
Hell., I rooted for Graf when Seles showed up.

I can't root against Serena, cause Venus wouldn't like it. And there simply is no 'heir apparent'. The #1 ranked player in the world won;t be named 'Williams' in five years. And if somehow she is, it sure won't be VENUS Williams.

The worst thing about the sunset of the 'Williams Sisters', isn't the reality of it. We all knew that was coming. It's that we want them to be supplanted by 'generatinoal' players. And that we don't have.

i think the current crop making the transition from juniors to pros--mladenovic, diyas, tomljanovic, stephens, etc.--are going to be great
