Question What if Venus had won the QF against Kim at last year's US Open?!

She was up 6-4 4-1* and had lots of chances during the whole match.
I can imagine seeing her at the top again if she had won this match.
Sharapova in the SF and Pierce in the Final - that would've been a good draw.

What do you think?

I don't even want to think about it...to me, it was by far her worst loss in a very long time...

(I think she was only up 4-2 and not 4-1)

1. Venus Williams
2. Na Li
3. Serena Williams
4. Jelena Jankovic
5. Ai Sugiyama

I remember watching that match on holidays at about 4 in the morning it was so tense - great match - It would have been nice for Venus to win but I really wanted Kim to win that first slam.....which she did

I think after coming through that match against Venus, Kim was then confident that she could go all the way which she deserved to do.

it was a tough loss....so was Serena's in 04...im hoping its just more motivation for them to get as far as they both can this year!

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?

That match was a barf-fest for me. I've made it no secret that I'm not really a Vee fan, but I'll root for anybody against Kim. Watching up to 4-2 second set, it was pretty clear who the superior player was. Vee was dominating and then just ran outta gas. It was about like Lindsay at the 05 AO.

It was a bad loss to say the least, but I dont think reflecting on things would help. I mean, I think had she played better in her QF against Myskina at 04 FO, she would have gone on to win the title.

But again, its no use wondering!

I detest "what if" threads.

Sorry, but they're such a waste of time and show a worrying reluctance on the part of some to face reality.

I know, what if the thread starter deleted this thread?
