Go to WTAworld. You should know MTF members couldn't give a damn about two WTA players - your only going to get biased opinions.

Well, as I said, this is MTF; main purpose being to discuss mens tennis. Go to WTAworld to discuss womens tennis.

Regarding the Williams sisters, they are absolutely abnoxious on the court and Serena has no respect for anyone but herself. Just listen to her press conferences. Also, see US Open semi-final vs. Clijsters. They scream at the top of their lungs and humiliate the game, as well as making you want to rip tear the speakers off of your TV. Look at their parents, that's what they came from. Why they are so selfish(Serena for the most part). Watch her press conference after Stosur match also.

Outburst at US Open, revelaed Serena's class, integrity, and selflessness. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DO_jlXjgxN8

Trying to cover herself up after her profane outburst: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DO_jlXjgxN8

Re: why did you delete the "Why do people dislike the william sisters? thread?

that may be your opinion, but imo, people seem to think she is arrogant by they way she used to act and the tone of her voice, now.

Serena has gone through a lot in her tennis career that nobody should have to go through.

She was called a racial slur repeatedly. As a person of ethinicity (middle eastern), I know the feeling of being called a racial slur.
After you have been called that you can handle it 4 ways, 1. you can forever despise that race, 2. become a person who is racially aware, 3. try to become "better" than that race, and 4. try to "fit" in with that race.
I handled it by number 4, which is slightly wrong, but I have grown up and made friends of my race.
Serena handled it by number 4 and 3, Serena is better than most players of that race and 4, she seems to act like a stuck up female of that race, but that was when she was younger, now she is older and people can't give her a clean slate. Now she is just number 3, and she will always be number now on.

So please forget about her past and read her press conferences instead.

This is not WTA world.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

If you want to discuss WTA go to tennisforum.com, men's tennis threads there get closed or moved out and same happens here with women's tennis threads.
