The meltdown of Martna Hingis at the Aussie Open brought out some interesting events in the tennis world and on this board. Some fans of Hingis began to depart her as rats leaving a sinking ship. This after a loss in a close GS final.

In the meantime, WILLIAMS fans were stronger than ever even after SERENA was unable to compete at Oz and VENUS was eliminated in the quarter finals.

Even though I would like for the Dynamic Duo to win more GS and Tier titles, I will continue to support them even when times are bad for them as it was in the first part of 2000. VENUS and SERENA are talented, attractive and intelligent people who you would like to support as a fan and to have as friend.

Those are some of my reasons for being a WILLIAMS fan. What about you?

Go SERENA!
Go VENUS !

TeeRexx, you're whacking the Hingis fans when they're down. 48 hours after what had to be a devastating loss for them is not the time to expect blind, total loyalty.

Besides, we Williams fans have seen V & S win five GS titles since the last time Martina won one. It's easier for us to chill out when misfortune hits.

Volcana - I am not thrashing Hingis fans, I am stating my opinion. I liked VENUS and SERENA when I saw them play exhibitions as children and when they had initially turned pro and had won nothing and most "experts" said that they didn't have what it takes to be winners on the tour.
I like these two people because who they are and how they play rather than if they just had a GS win lately. I guess you weren't around in early 2000 when VENUS was out for 6 months and some really believed that she may not be able to play well or might actually retire. well, I was still a fan of hers during that time as well.
At least Hingis made it to the final at OZ. Williams fans should be the ones crying in their beers, not the Marti followers.

kc - I know you are no rat and I think I did say some fans. The word is a metaphor for those who abandon a cause during time of crisis.

I'm proud to be a fan of Venus and Serena because they are beautiful, on the inside and outside, and their beauty radiates and spreads to those around them.

They are well adjusted and smart, and they both kick ass on the tennis court. :)

It's a pleasure for me to cheer them on, no matter what the circumstances.

I thoroughly disagree. I have to say that Martina's fans are incredibly loyal. We've had to have been to have gone what we've been through this past three years, but we keep going, it's hope that spurs us on. The glory supporters have now gone as there has been no real glory, only those who still belive and truly yearn for better days stay on, and still in large numbers. Eventually Martina will prove her insistent critics wrong, and we as fans can stop being so inanely oppressed, just because we are very depressed after a deeply heartbreaking loss. I think Martina fans on this board have shown great resolve. Some less so, but we can do without them, as we know our faith isn't blind faith.

The ship may be a way behind, but it damn well isn't sunk yet.

Anyway, stay loyal folks...

As a Williams fan, I am glad to just see my favs play well, because I feel that they will get more wins eventually. But more so, I am a fan of the players, not just their wins.

WR - Yes everyone seems to keep an eye on the fabulous WILLIAMS and their fans. :)
Probably trying to find out why we are so loyal and upbeat. :wavey:

I think we should both (Hingis and Williams' fans) be proud that we're the most dominant and most committed fans of players on the board (no disrespect to other players fans, but this is my opinion).....

Right, can we go back to hating eachother now? ;) We're supposed to aren't we? :D :p

JW - I will hate you if you don't change that disgusting avatar of Hingis that looks like she is puking her little guts out.

But, I do not think that any Williams fans hates any other fans because they are too busy focusing in on their fabulous favs. :)

I appreciate what you're saying, but again, there is still total loyalty.
And how long since Martina's last GS title makes no difference to my support for her.

lol @ "Martians are invading Venus". Sorry, I don't usually come into your threads, but I saw a link, and then felt obligated to reply to Tee.
And thankyou for what you said about Martina fans. :)


And again, sorry to all you Williams fans, didn't mean to intrude on your territory.

JW - If Martina is your fav, I am quite sure that you can find a more flattering pic of her for your avatar than the spitting one that is currently displayed.
Use the one of her naked in the shower, that one is quite acceptable. :p ;)
