Unlikely Davos comparison

Venus and Serena playing doubles

I don’t hark back to Davos very often on Davos Newbies. But I was amused at this reference by Pete Bodo, one of my favorite tennis writers:

Here’s something that bothers me about the lack of exposure for doubles: It means that the vast bulk of matches in which the Williams sisters play together are simply not seen. I can’t tell you want a pleasure it is to watch Venus and Serena on a doubles court. They seem so. . . relaxed – so contented and committed to the task at hand. They smack palms, utter encouragements, and hold conferences – meetings so focused that they wouldn’t be out of place at Davos, or wherever it is that all those beautiful minds get together to flatter and stroke each other.
