I saw the first round of 2003 FedCup with Williams humiliating Czech girls... about 99.9% of the crowd was still rooting for them... so sleep tight, pussy cat.cirelowe said:......American audience support the Williams Sisters (if they are chosen) over the Belgiams (kim and Justine)? One ponders!
And some of you have taken paranoia to ridiculous levels. IF Venus is fit enough to play in the US Open, she sure as hell isn't going to be the underdog against either of the Belgians. In case you hadn't noticed, she has quite a good record at the US Open in comparison to Henin and Clijsters, both of whom have never beaten her on hardcourts. People will cheer for the underdog if the match merits it, not through some in-built aversion to the Williams sisters.calabar said:For those who buy into this "I always root for the underdog" crap, there's a bridge in New York I'd like to sell you. Should Venus play in the USOpen, she will be the underdog to both Justine and Kim. don't hold your breath for her support from the crowds. It makes no difference whether it's Fed Cup, the Olympics or just another regular tennis match. Some of you people have taken naivete to rediculous levels.
