And they played eachother, who do you think would win? I think it would be Venus in straight sets. When Venus is playing her best (2000, 2001) She has a better serve and a better all court game than Serena.

Serena.....the form Serena displayed during her '02-'03 run has been matched by only a select few in history....when Serena has everything clicking, then Venus really can't beat her.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

yes...I should have made that a poll option.

Bandabou- I think it would depend on the surface. If it was clay or Rebound Ace, Serena would most likely win but on faster surfaces I would definitely give the edge to Venus.

since we've never seen them both at their best, it's impossible to say. you'd think it'd be a tight three setter. However, all the answers in this thread will either be Serena (by the Serena fans, as we have one already ) and Venus by the Venus fans.

If they always played at the best of their ability, I would say each match would be a tight three setter, and their H2H would be even, because they are so close in everything

I'd say Serena in 3 sets. They're both great at their best, no doubt about it, but I think Serena has the mental edge that would get her the win. Lets just say that of the two, she hates losing more.

Exactly....they're pretty much even, but Serena hates losing more...tennisIlove, if Venus was the better one at her best, I'd say so....but can we really say that's true?

Venus has the egde on faster surfaces? Mind to explain that one?

Always bet on black!

Althought it's true that both fanbases will vote for who they support more, I would still like to see the reasoning behind their thoughts.
