Why are people, commentators talking about Justine and Kim, not Williams sisters?

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

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.................

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.

Justine and Kim are playing. The commentators aren't talking about Monica, Jenn aor Amelie either.


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?

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 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!
