Venus: "I guess it'll be like old times."

"We both like to dictate and control the point, even though we have different styles," Williams said. "I guess it'll be like old times."

That's what Venus had to say about her upcoming match with her old nemesis!
Can't wait! Hope it'll be an amazing match (hope someone tapes it and uploads it too )

May the best player win and go on and take the title!!!

(As a Hingis fan, I'm cheering for Hingis, but wouldn't be too upset if Venus won)

good luck to both! I'm sure the loser of the match will be able to hold her head high...

How I've missed those old times
with these great rivals.

Show 'em how it's done
Venus & Martina!

Good Luck to both ladies!
Little more to Venus.

i guess it won't be quite like old times as neither Venus nor Hingy are the towering figures they were in the past. This is a 2nd round match at a Tier 2 event - used to be they only played each other on the biggest of occasions, Slam semifinals and such.

YES! I've been waiting for this all year! GO VEE!

I'd like to imagine that in order to beat me a person would have to play almost perfect tennis. - Venus Williams

Well they are both making comebacks, so I'll take a second round. right now there are no towering figures, no one is dominating but those two are still some of the best players on the tour.

Who cares!

Venus has come back from injury and Martina
has just come back to the tour, what did you expect.
Also, it was simply the luck of the draw, both could have
just as easily been on the opposite sides.

They have produced some of the best matches
in this millenium and if both remain healthy both
can become those same figure once again.

As it stands, in their current state neither
is too shabby.

i'm not trying to spoil anyone's fun, i'm just noting that times are a bit different. I'm sure it will be a fun match, but of course it won't even be televised. Can you imagine Venus vs Hingy not being on tv back in, say, 2001?

Good Luck, Martina!!
