It does include that match, but Lindsay was in many ways Martina's toughest competitor, aside from Graf and most of Graf's victories over Hingis were before 1997.
But what is truly amazing is that Venus and Serena met only 14 times since they came on the tour, when, the mid-90s? Why, if they were so dominant, did they fail to wind up in tons of finals, the way Chris and Martina did.
Or even Martina and Lindsay. In 2000, maybe their most competitive year, Hingis and Davenport faced off in the finals of five tournaments, the Australian Open, Indian Wells, Miami, Zurich and Philadelphia. That is a rivalry!
Why so few Williams sisters face off over nearly 10 years of competition?
Did the Willies intentionally duck one another?
