Dementieve Could Join Select Company If.....

She defeats Serena in the final. She would join a handful of women who have beaten BOTH Williams in the same tournament....... Ok time to wake up and get back to reality.

But just wait for someone to suggest putting asterisk next to that achievement if that happen, just because Williams sisters are rusty.

Honestly, no one really did that. All who have done that so far either did it in Australia, where the sisters have never been in good form until 2003, or as Kim, at YEC, where motivation was really a big question and injuries were a factor. When someone beats them at W or USO, that would be a magnificient achievement.

LOL

And why, pray tell, does Australia not count?

Perhaps we shouldn't count the matches that Hingis lost at Wimbledon? Or Amelie at the FO?

Hingis's beating both sisters counts. Kim's doesn't. And I can't remember enough about any of the others to comment.

Exclamation

I won't put a number on it, but Elena's chances are pretty slim. According to the WTA Tour website, since 1997, the sisters have played 39 tournaments together and only four women have been able to beat them in a tournament. Of the four, only one (Aranxta Sanchez) beat them en route to a WTA tournament win, only one (Clijsters, if you consider her beating Venus, which I don't, but technically she did) did it outside of Australia, all were Grand Slam finalists and all but Kim won a Grand Slam and all at one time were number one players, which shows you have to be an exceptional player to beat both sisters in a tournment.

I wonder if they'd use any excuses if Elena did.
