When Hingis was #1 on tour, she always beat the Williams sisters. She's 0-2 against Serena when she hasn't been #1. So that would make her 10-7 against Venus + 6-5 against Serena at #1 for a winning record total of 16-12.
And Venus and Serena will never be #1 & 2, because when they start to play more tournaments in a row, they get tired physically and mentally, as Venus has proven so far this year. It is very easy to come into a tournament fresh as a daisy and beat players like Martina and Monica who just reached their 5th final in 5 weeks in 5 different countries. I'd like to see either sister do that and still win the tournaments they do.
I understand, TeeRexx, that you live off both of these two players and spend hours at a time, every day, reminding us how wonderful they are, but would it hurt you to look at things from a different point of view? Or will you forever have those glasses with the Williams tint?
