Technically last century ended at 31st December 2000, not 99. So it's actully Martina 5 Venus 2.
Secondly Venus started on the tour later than Martina and also Martina came from a financialy stable family, Venus came from a poor and rough suburb called Compton, so therefore had less funds to get to the top. Overall I think it was a great rivally, but at the end of the day Venus is the better player.
