Number1Kim said:I'm sure Venus has as many friends as she wants. She seems like a nice person. Maybe she doesn't want as many close friends as others. Also, some people call everyone they know their friend and others are very choosy about the difference between a friend and an acquaintance (including many intellectual types, which we're always told Venus is).
Anyway, what't the prob with having your sisters and parents as friends? Many people all over the world socialise mainly with their families and have for centuries with no ill effects.
graf admitted herself that her only friends on the tour were tarabini (who she befriended in order to learn spanish) and stubbs. i've always been under the impression that people like graf and the williams sisters don't enjoy fraternizing with their "co-workers", like many of us in our own lives.Jakeev said:Steffi Graf was a similar player who had few friends on tour. In the beginning, I thought Venus was kind of arrogant cause she did not attempt to at least be friendly with the other players.
But the reality is, Venus is just one that keeps to herself. And that, on top of her other ventures, she probably doesn't have time to get to know other tennis players off court.
Really? Why?I am so amazed that the love shared between Venus and Serena has not died out even as Serena continues to dominate her older sister.
