I really like them both but for different reasons.
Venus :angel: reminds me of myself...self-confident, poised, cool, calm and collected :hatoff:.
Serena :devil: reminds me of the person I would like to be....kick a** and take names later--and doesn't care whose feelings are hurt :kiss:.

Venus.

And here's my theory as to why: I saw Venus win Wimbledon 2000. That's when I became her #1 fan. Had I seen Serena win the 99 Open, I'm sure she'd be my #1. (I have seen the 99 Open, but I saw it afterwards)

Venus is my favorite but i am a fan of them both and I miss them A LOT!

Nov 26th, 2003, 12:56 PM
Venus is my favorite simply because I can relate more with her being the older sibling and her attitude, demeanor, and sense of humor are similar to mine. Venus maybe my favorite but I love them both!

I like both but i prefer Serena cos of her attitude. Venus' attitude is great but i think Serena's attitude and determination to do whatever is takes to win is the best on the tour.

I love 'em equally, however, I will root for one or the other depending on the circumstance. Right now Venus is behind so I am rooting for her. No one was pulling harder for Serena than I was when sh won the French and Wimby in '02.

May they continue to meet in finals and alternate victories. That would be my ultimate as a fan of BOTH.

Yea, Serena is a go getter. I remember that swim suit spread in the Sports Illustrated she was the one who called them and said she wanted to go the swim suit spread. Anything Serena wants she gets all she has to do is pick the phone up and make that call.

Since Magic Johnson, I tried so hard not to get emotionally attached to sports personalities , but that Venus Williams :hearts: left me no choice... There's something about her which draws you in.. she has poise, :hearts: a quiet strength, :kiss: controls her emotions :hearts: and she is a fabulous tennis player. :bounce: :bounce: On the otherhand I like Serena only because of her big sis ;)

Serena, Serena.....after the three epics she played at the U.S. open ī99 and her reactions! Totally liked her for that. Her screams, her fist-pumps. The competitiveness..

beckermeister
Nov 26th, 2003, 06:05 PM
Venus: Class and poise - one of my five favourites.

Not as crazy about Serena but have to admire her agressive attitude. She's always attacking and trying to win the point - no matter what the score or situation. Wish more of the top players shared this attitude...

Nov 26th, 2003, 06:24 PM
I like them both equally.

But Serena is just my kind of woman. :drool: She is just alot like me personality wise also.

I actually think older Williams fans prefer Venus. JMO. I like Venus because she is so regal and classy, strong and confident.

Nov 26th, 2003, 07:00 PM
I like them both for different reasons. V for her style, grace and arrogance, also for being so charming and spontaneous in her interviews and speeches.
Serena for her passion and attitude.

Only thing I can say is that I root for Venus when they play eachother, I usually cheer for the underdog

Personality wise-Serena, tennis wise- Serena...attitude wise? Neither.

VENUS!!! :hearts: :hearts:

Whenever I see her, the same song always pops into my head: "she's got legs, and she knows how to use them....." Also, I prefer Venus' playing style to Serena's. The Queen doesn't come to the net as often as I would like, but she does come to the net more than the Warrior Princess. ;)

And the more popular Williams on the board is by (almost) unanimous decision: VENUS WILLIAMS!

Receiving more than twice as many votes as the other contestant: Serena Williams! At least in this contest, Venus can beat Serena.

But...

Because Venus hasn't won a slam in a bit, I've been cheering for her. But I love to watch both play, and I love to watch either sister win.

But I chose Venus :yippee:

SJW you might be right because their are more Venus only fans than Williams fans, but what I have seen from my experience is older fans like the classical approach of Venus which is more on the line of Lifetime Television. She is very introspective, cultured, and regal.

While on the other hand alot of the younger kids like Serena because of her MTV like style. The gaudy outfits, combined with her sheer power athleticism, and personality is what draws the young lads in.

I didn't know you were a Williams fan.

About the question. I preferred Serena right until she became number one, mainly because she had so much talent and seemed to be letting it go waste. Now though I prefer Venus because she seems to be in Serena's earlier position. I hope she wins massively, if only to shut people up about her not being an elite player anymore and not really in the class of......... you know whom!!!!!!!!!

I've got my Venus days and my Serena days, but ever since that great match with Hingis Serena sparks my heart more. For some reason I feel some Venus' loving days coming in the year ahead. Probably the anticipation of some fabulous runs through tournaments! (but please Venus, give Justine a chance in Antwerp, just a chance) But Serena will always be the girl I saw growing right there in front of me and it was so beautiful!

Venus by kilometer ;)
I don't know. I've seen her playing live. Like her humour (seems much more 'naturelle' then Serena who is trying too be funny IMHO). Lovely appearence on court. Allways classy, allways in my memory cuz of her brilliant ( :confused: :( ;) :D ) match against Graf in Wimbledon...

Serena. Great player, just don't really like her. Don't know why.

Venus has a really 'dry humour' I love it!
I find serena not very funny, she wants to be, but she can't touch Venus
IMHO

==> Neither are funny on court

Nov 27th, 2003, 05:36 PM
I prefer Venus personally, I just enjoy her personality on and off the court. She is very intelligent, she has a very dry sense of humour that really cracks me up, and I just think that even in interviews you can see that she comes across as a really interesting person. Serena's more in your face, Venus' personality grabs my attention more because she does things in a more subtle way.

I agree, because even though Serena is who I prefer, I started off with Venus and it just hurts me to see her lose all those slam finals. I have a feeling she will have a good year in 2004.

Serena on the other hand....I don't like her smile and I don't like her attitude on court...too Hollywood lol :o

Similar topic to Kim vs Justine!!

So it seems Venus & Kim are loved more then their "opponents". ;)
Interesting fact that girls who achived more so far(Serena & Justine) (Don't get me wrong Venus achieved more then Justine so far)
are liked less, it's seems kinda weird for me :confused:
