Are Venus and Serena respected more today by fellow players?

Is it me or does it seem like the sisters are more respected by fellow players today more than ever?

Watching them over the last two weeks, there seemed to be a lot of smiles, classy gestures and genuine handshakes by their opponents than I have ever seen in tournaments past. Even the commentators seemed rather positive.

Am I seeing things or are Venus and Serena finally getting the respect they deserve by at least the tour?

Serena in particular seems to have chilled out a lot more. It's refreshing that she and the other girls can view each other in such a positive light. But this is probably because this generation just doesn't have the game to truly beat an AgeRena playing at 20%. Put a Capriati/Hingis type character in the mix and we might see some fireworks again... :)
