Serena on how Venus is playing

``She's been dominating me in practice, so I definitely have to pick up my game in the next match or two,'' Serena said.

glad to here they've been practicing together

Serena always says Venus beats her in practice. But she's been beating Venus in the tournaments.

But I think this time she is meaning it...in her current form, Serena won´t be able to get past Jen..let alone Venus.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

When Serena practices with Venus, she practices with her sister.

When Serena plays her at a Slam, she is playing the enemy and she does what she needs to do and wins. Venus cannot see Serena as the enemy, unless things have changed. We shall see.

VENUS WILLIAMS

Queen of WTAWORLD, Queen of Tennis.

Exactly.....if Venus could get over that,....the SF between the two is gonna be the match of the tournament and the real final.

Always bet on black!

I think she can beat them both. It will be a different story facing them. Serena will bring her game. This is a slam.

nah even if Serena plays a terrible match against Jennifer, Serena's pride will win the match for her.she WON'T let herself lose to Jennifer in a slam after what all those losses to Jen 3 years ago did to her mentally.As much as I don't like saying it(only for Venus' sake),I think Serena is emerging as the RG champion right now.

Exactly. I sometimes think Serena says that just so she has an excuse if Venus beats her. But we all know Venus never brings her best game against Serena. Ever.

Neither has brought their best game against each other. While I don't mind when they meet up, I just wish it was better quality. The best set they played against each other was at Wimby 2002 first set.

True enough. But Serena seems to deal with it better...at least the last few times. I hope Venus carries her WB aggressive play over here against Serena (should they play). That's the kind of ball that'll beat Serena. But I won't get my hopes up.

Venus' level didn't drop against Serena in the US Open 2001. It didn't drop at Wimbledon last year either. Serena doesn't need an excuse for Venus to beat her. She will be happy for Venus if Vee wins. No excuses. You are a bitter one aren't you TIL09?
