Q. Have you come here with that focus?
SERENA WILLIAMS: Well, I don't think I was focused enough tonight. I think I could have zeroed in on a few more shots. I think I made way too many errors today. I don't like to use that as an excuse.
Monica Seles, whenever she lays off for a while, she comes back and wins and keeps winning. I try, when I'm off for a while, I think about her. If she can do it, I think I can do it, too.

Both Sisters have never had anything but admiration and praise for Monica. One reason most Williams' fans are also fans of Monica. Not the only one though, it is hard not to adore Monica Seles. :cool:

Yes, and Monica has never uttered one negative word about Venus or Serena.

I know that Serena loved Monica when she was a little girl and Monica was #1. It's sweet to hear her say that she still uses her as an inspiration.

Go Serena and Monica!

yeah it is so cool to see them like Monica so much, I think Serena and Venus learn to fight like Monica when they are young, and Monica should also ealrn from Venus and Serena, and that is belieing yourself to be the top

Funny that you mentioned that Tsequoi .
MOST of the Williams fans were Monica's Fans
Actually I started following Women tennis when I first saw Monica battling Grafs at the R.G Open
I was pulling for her ,and became her greatest fan ...till
God send us the Messiah .

anyway , I followed the french TV5 news this Morning and martina gave an interview to "l'equipe" news paper in wich she said that , she gonna retire from Tennis.
she mentioned her injury and the sister being too strong for her to handle.

Dunno ,maybe some French Posters would give more details

Where is Davheed were we need Him?

:cool:

Ofcourse Venus and Serena will be nice to the likes of Monica and Kim Clijsters. If you are nice and cordial to others, they should return the favor.

Yes, I am a williams fan who is also a fan of Kim and Monica. If the Williams sisters are not winning, then I hope Kim and Monica are.

I hope Monica is nice enough to Venus to let her win the match tonight. That Monica, always the sweetie pie:)

It's so nice to see that both sisters respect Monica. I was not really a big fan of either Williams initially, but now they are my favourites after Monica, partially because they showed so much respect to Seles.

That's nice :)

Monica defied convention (though in a very different way) some 10 years before the sisters did and Venus and Serena have continued that. The sport is different because of them :)
