Serena Williams is the most consistently good player on the tour

That sounds absurd. Consider this.

Since (and including) the Canadian Open 2001, Serena Williams has played in nine tournaments. She retired from Sydney.

Of the remaining eight, she's made the finals in seven of them. She lost in the QFs of the other one. (she played well too.) No one else even comes close to this level of play. She's in the finals virtually every time she plays.

OMIGOD!!!!!!!! FINALLY! Thank you! I am absolutely puzzled why everyone answered Venus on my questionnaire as to who is the better Williams sister. Venus is so fickle! Serena only loses to two people pretty much

So consistent, playing so well - it's only a matter of time before she adds to her GS title collection.

What interests me though is which GS will it be, unless Serena wins the French (which is looking very possible but Paris seems to produce surprise winners all the time) I don't imagine her big sister will give up her own titles without a fight ...

Definitely worth watching .

True, SERENA has had a real good year, but big sis still has 4 titles and is always the one to beat in a tournament.

Having said that, I would like for SERENA to come away from RG with the title because she has not had a slam win since 99.

As much as I love Venus, I have to agree with the assessment of Serena. Richard has always said that Serena will be the better of the two players.

He's been fairly accurate so far in his other predictions. (Hmmm)

Venus and Serena are sitting on top of the WORLD

She is so consistent she might be almost as good as her sister.

Imagine what the tour will be like when Serena fully learns how to control points, dominate at the net, and stay healthy. It probably will be Serena and the rest.

Her game is so close to being complete that when she plays, for some reason, I feel relaxed. On the contrary, when Venus plays, I hold my heart in my hands.

I think the second serve, among other things, makes the difference. No need to be effusive here.

Serena is awesome, but Venus has the major accomplishment on tour. Serena is in the same way, but Venus is also there too

GO GIRLS, YOU RULE THE TOUR

Serena can win the French Open and U.S Open this year, but not Wimbledon, Wimbledon is for Venus!!

Venus ~ Serena ~ Nadal

Yes Serena is the best player this year by far. I think Richards prediction might come true. Serena I believe by beating her sister 2 and 2 has gotten over the hurdle of big sis.....
