If Serena Had Venus's Technique, and Venus Serena's...

would Serena still be the 'better player'?

I think the only reason Serena is better than Venus is because of her fundamentals, so when Serena plays bad, she can atleast rely on her technique. But if Serena had the same technical problems Venus did, I don't think she would be any where near the player she is.

I mean grand-slam champion for sure, but I think it would definately bogg her game down. Because Serena's game is so based on technique and talent, while Venus's is just more talent based, I think Venus would be virtually unstoppable.

What do you all think?

what I mean is if Venus's first and second serve's were as sound as Serena's technically and her forehand wasn't as shaky

and Serena's serve wasn't as dependable and her forehand even more shaky

i think getting the technique right also requires talent

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

But thats the point....Serena wouldnt stop until she got it right. She got the drive...so I cant see her having bad-technique.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Venus has better reach and potential but does not have the killing instinct and desire...

I give up!
I've just got to laugh anymore!

If one more person says Venus has no desire
despite showing that she does.

Oh whatever.

Fine by me!

I'm tired Venus doesn't have this and Venus doesn't have that!
Since when can you tell how someone feels when you can't get
in their heads or hearts to tell.

Venus is positive about it all and says her game is on the up and up
we still just continue to here Vee this and Vee that.

I guess some here know her better than she
apparently knows herself.

That being said, I give up
and just laugh about it all from
critics and fans alike.(the worry, anger, ect...)
