The Williams sisters are simply the best thing about pro-tennis today. Their matches are much more fun to watch than anyone on the mens' side with the possible exception of Nadal and Federer matchups on grass. Add to that the awesome op-ed she wrote for the Times of London that shamed Wimbledon and the French Open into paying equal prize money to women, and Venus is easily my favorite tennis player of this generation.
