I don't like the Tennis Williams

I don't like the Tennis Williams. There, I said it. I especially don't like their manipulative father, Richard.

Reuters: Dad says Venus may quit tennis in near future

"She can make a lot more money out of [tennis] rather than in tennis."

This is why I don't like them, or, at least, Venus and Richard... perhaps I shouldn't put Serena in the same pile. That comment suggests all V and R care about is money. They don't care about the sport. For them it's a cash grab. I'd much rather watch and cheer for someone who actually cared what they were doing on the court.

If I'm going to cheer for Venus I might as well cheer the CEO of some Fortune 500 company likes to play tennis at the country club on the weekends.
