i'm a fan of both venus and serena and i don't really remember when i became a fan, it was about the time that i first started getting into tennis as a whole. it was probably wimbledon 2001 because that was the year that i fell in love with tennis, i was rooting for both goran and venus that year. after that i always rooted for the all williams finals and i watch their matches whenever i can. this past october i saw my first live tennis match and i got to see venus play in philadephia against mauresmo, sadly she lost but i still loved seeing her. hopefully i'll get to see serena play soon. i'm going to wimbledon this year and i would absolutely love to see both serena and federer. so i'm keeping my fingers crossed overall i just feel like they've done a lot for the sport, and also outiside of tennis, all around they are good rolemodels for a lot of people. they had a goal, and a lot of people didn't believe that they could do it, and they did which was so awesome.

Here goes....I was living in Hamburg, Germany in 1997 and CNN worldsport did a special segment on two players who are from a rough and tough neigborhood being trained by their dad.

I dont know what area it was but it was pretty shady... anyways they kept on practising, and had a no nonsense approach to what they were doing...

The reporter was like..look out for the william sisters in the years to come, and i think it was next year that they made their mark....

First it was Monica Seles and Sanchez Vicario for me but then it became Serena...I loved her game and realized that if she played to her top ability she truly is unbeatable. I STICK TO THIS FACT EVEN TODAY... I dont think any player on the tour can match serena when she is at her best...

I guess another reason why I am a fan is cuz of the fact that I can relate to them since they are also a minority and I'm also part of a minority....+ she seems like a nice person too.

this thread is proof that serena fans come from all walks of life. WS fans get labled into this small group of fans who only support serena or venus, and who are not 'real fans'. the truth is we are really diverse, come from around the world, and not only are we some of the most knowledgable fans around, a lot of us support tons of other players on tour.

hello to everyone new

I became a Serena fan after she won the US Open in '99. I was intially a Venus fan, and just thought her younger sister was a spoiled brat. Then I realized she was the real deal after she won her first slam. She's been my favorite player ever since.

I became Serena fan in 2000, when she lost to her sister at Wimbledon SF. Untill then, Venus was my #1 favorite, and Serena was on second place, but since then it all turned arround.
And I will have no other #1 favorites as long as Rena keeps on playing tennis, no metter how successfull she will be...
And, just like loving Serena, I will never stop loving Venus and Ana Ivanovic.
My favorites list:
1) Serena
2) Ana Ivanovic
3) Venus
All the other players don't count as my real favorites.

Monica came first, the classic "REBEL", hard worker and genuine "Nice Girl" how could one person possess all those qualities?????Then I fell under the spell of Vee's Science, she seemed to be out there all by herself fighting against the world, quiet, determined and very young. When I first saw Serena (I forgot the Tourney) she was playing in Europe and took like 900 bathroom and trainer breaks, then she came back on the court and had to retire from the match She was so shaken and obviously upset because she had to retire, that I felt sorry for her. I said to myself, oh well she is finished, and then she came back the very next Tourney and rocked, excuse me ladies, no disrespect intended, but I started noticing that world class body and was amazed at the efficiency and purpose that she flung all that womanhood around the court she was fast, strong and very feminine, then I started listening to her interviews, She is also very funny, by this time she had stolen my heart. Serena reminds me of many of the women I have met in my life, the ones that I remember are truly amazing, she is one of a kind, and I will support her in anything her sweet little heart desire. Gonna buy some of the new Aneres longere (for my Girl ) and continue this love affair that is solely in my head.

Hi Stef, well I can truly say I'm a die-hard Williams' fan. But, Serena is my favorite. I think I fell in love with her when she beat Martina Hingis in the US Open for her first grand slam. I was a die-hard Billie Jean fan back in the day. But, after Billie Jean retired, I kind of lost touch with the tour and the game of tennis. I've never really seen Steffi play and I probably wouldn't have been a fan, since I would have been rooting for Monica in those days. Then Venus came along after Serena and took her first GS at Wimby and then the US Open and repeated the next year. I really got into the game then. Around the next year 2002, Serena really started to come into her own and winning titles. She plays with such intensity and I admired her style of play. The strength and accuracy, the cunningness and the serve. She had the whole package. Contrary to popular opinion, I do not think she is out for the count. I think she is waiting to come back 100% and she is going to blow everyone off the court again. I can't wait for the day to see Justine's fans crying in their beer, when Serena whips her like a step child again. Serena just always comes through for me. She has the desire, so lacking in everyone else on the tour. You can never count her out. That was never so aptly displayed at AO 03 during the semis against Kim. She came through and started to own Hingis, then JenCap and now she's going to come back and reclaim ownership of Justine. I believe it. I believe in her.

GO SERENA!!
Well, that was me when I was DeDe42 and I still feel the same. Didn't I tell you she'd come back and come back she did winning the first slam of the year. I think she really wants Wimby again, so Ms. Maria and the rest need to watch out.

I became a fan of Serena when she tore through the field at the '99 US Open. I play tennis, and I'm the only black player on my team, so it was really neat to see another black player doing well in a predominately white sport. The way she bullied Hingis in the final was so mesmorizing!!! After I saw that match, I wanted to play just like her. I went out and perfected a similar service motion to Serena, my forehand and backhand are similar to hers, and I try to hit with the same power that she does (even though I'll probably never hit the ball like her!). Even though she sort of fell into a slump between 2000-2002, I still loved her. I love her game, her outfits, and her personality on the court. I have really come to admire her fighting spirit. Serena is a perfect example of this: As long as you're still on the court, there's still a chance to win - no matter what the score is. When she really started dominating in 2002-2003, I was in heaven! Never have I seen a woman strike a tennis ball like that. I don't think I ever missed one of her matches. The way she just blasted her opponents off the court was incredible. It's so funny because I started to take on some of the same qualities of Serena!!! My serve was one of the best on my tennis team, my forehand was my weakest shot, and very few people could outhit me on the court! In 2004, after she came back from her knee surgery, my respect of Serena reached a new level. Seeing her compete when she clearly wasn't at her best really made me admire her even more. The fact that she still plugged away when it seemed like everyone around her was better really made me value the fighter in her. She was still a factor in most tournaments even though she wasn't one of the best!!! That says a lot about the type of person she is. Serena is incredible. She's a role model for all aspiring black players because she has defied the stereotypes. I will always support and love Serena.

I became a Serena fan in 2000-2001 I just really liked the way she played she was awesome! I also like the way she displays great sportsmanship and the way she can turn things around when they are bad and make such a great comeback! A star and class act Serena is!

Thumbs up

I forget,but probably in 99 when she beat Hingis in US open. I love her powerful game and her tough attitude on court.

Probably when I first saw her at Wimbly, but I can' remember what year. I only started fancying her last year though. She has a really nice personality, and I like both the Williams' voices. They are really soft and gentle and nice to hear.
