Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

What about career doubles titles? Are those equal or does ASV have a big edge, since Venus rarely plays doubles in non-GS events.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

Outside of GS's Venus has only entered about 18
tournaments in doubles since she turned pro in 94'.

Number of weeks at Doubles N.1 has also been omited, which would favour Arantxa... but to be fair, their winning percentage has not been listed either, and that would favour Venus

Venus has the second best pourcentage win/loss in double in the history of tennis, it's quite strange

maybe not in the history of tennis lol, but according to wtatour.com

VENUS

Also, in all fairness things would be
assessed much better if both were retired.

That's because she rarely plays outside of Slams
and most of the time when she has played with
Serena she has won.

Venus' last doubles match with Serena and/or Chanda
outside of GS's, OG's, & Fed Cup was Sydney 01'.

Venus' Doubles Record

Grand Slams: 52/8
Olympics: 5/1
Fed Cup: 3/0
Other WTA Tournaments: 33/13

Overall: 93/22

Its even stranger how alike their records are when you look at their careers - Venus played sparsely and had a short period of dominance. ASV just kept on going playing everywhere and won her GS over a long long period.
