Who Would Martina Rather Face Venus Or Serena?

Next up Martina versus Venus. They have not faced each other since the Ericsson 2001. Martina though has faced lil Sis often since then. Who would she rather face Queen Venus or Lil Sis Serena? I mean deep down.

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!
SERENA PRINCESS OF POWER

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
Françoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.

Deep down, she wants Venus. I think she has a feeling she has more of a chance against her than Serena. Serena has this "crush the opponent" approach when she's playing, and Martina knows that all too well.

For Martina's sake I hope it's Venus, otherwise tomorrow could turn out to be a disaster.

I think she probably does prefer to play Venus anyway though - she always gives her trouble and actually has the game to take it to her.

They always provide entertaining matches, hopefully tomorrow will be no different .

Lately, Hingis has looked helpless, weaponless when facing Serena. I am sure she must think she has a better chance with Venus. Tomorrow is definitely a big day for both of them and for us fans too, specially those with TV coverage.

Let's hope Venus is healthy; we need answers to many questions raised for more than a year now about this match-up.

Martina would rather play Venus. She said in the past that Serena's game is difficult to play. At least against Venus, she can rally a bit more. Like CC said, Serena's got the 'crush the opponent' type of game, while Venus tries to set up the point a bit more.

Serena seems to have Hingis' number. However, I think Venus' game may be a little more suited to beat Hingis' on clay. Venus's patience and rallying in the last two and a half years may make her close to being an even clay player with Martina.

From what I saw against Schnyder, Hingis would savor a matchup against an impatient Serena on clay.

Martina doesn't want any part of Serena! and rightfully so. Serena has given Martina the worst beatings of her career.

I'm sure Serena would be tough aswell on clay, and that Martina would fear of facing her there too

Always hoping for a Williams wn myself but Ithink Martina would rather play Venus than Serena just for the fact as others have said that she gets a bit more of a chance to play.

I think she'd rather play Venus... at least she won't get blown away like she does by Serena...

And Venus has recorded only 1 (or is it 2?) straight set win over Martina, so I think Martina would definitely prefer Venus...
