    I love tennis. I've been a fan for many years and love it more since there are more African Americans in the tournaments. Like golf, tennis was always a sport for the white elite. Now we're seeing more athletes of other races, particularly African Americans enter these sports and begin to dominate them.

    I have to admit that I was disappointed when the Williams sisters changed from braids to perms. Even more, I didn't like the blonde coloring that Serena changed to. But, they're sisters, they're phenomenal athletes and I enjoy watching them play.

    I wonder if the divorce of their parents will impact their game this season. Go Venus! Go Serena! :)

    yes NNQ these two are the 1, 2 of da game today
    it may have some affect on their game for sure if they don't
    accept it well but if they do these two might meet in the finals
    Dad plays a major role in their careers we'll see how it go
    but rest for sure one will be the champ ....
