I was a huge Martina Navratilova and Gabriela Sabatini fan as a student at N. Miami Beach high school in Miami, Florida. The volatile Navratilova was my favorite because she hated to lose. Women's tennis was immensely popular in the 80s due to superstars like Billie Jean King and the golden girl Chris Evert.
In those days, Venus and Serena were just little kids whupping up on all the other kids on the junior tennis side. I never thought they would amount to anything. But, as usual, I was wrong. Venus should have been the star of the family. Her tall lanky frame was much better suited for tennis than her younger sister. But it was Serena who showed promise by winning her first tournament at the tender age of four and a half.
Serena Williams is today's Morning Glory by request.
