Williams vs. Williams: Will it happen again in Paris?

The 2001 U.S. Open womens singles final was an historic occasion in sports when VENUS and SERENA WILLIAMS faced each other in that championship match.

But, can they do it once more in Paris at the Roland Garos championships?



VENUS: The biggest obstacles to the Queen of Tennis playing in the finals is, as always, injuries and distracting shopping sprees in Paris.
Heck, she has winning records against everyone entered and she just about owns the #1 ranked player in the world.
So, if VENUS can stay healthy and give that Kryptonite credit card a rest, her chances of being in the finals are very good.

SERENA: At this time, the Princess may be the odds on favorite to take the title, based on the momentum that she has going into Roland Garos after defeating Henin and Capriati in her last tournament victory.
SERENA and Henin may have the toughest draw of the top 5 seeds but, she seems to have found the way to handle Henin and she has equaled her sister's winning streak against Ms. Manners.
SERENA will be in the finals if she can close out those sets, in which she builds up leads, and decisively finish off her opponets in the process.

Even though VENUS is the best player on the tour, I would like to see SERENA with the Roland Garos title for her second major title.

Go SERENA!
Go VENUS!

I hope so! Venus is fantastic. Serena is terrific. A final on clay will be phenominal.

I hope they are both injury free. If they are they can do it!

Even if it is not a Williams final, if one wins, I will be soooooo happy.
I can't be too greedy, afterall there are some other good players in the draw. As long as one thakes it.

Although, if it is a Williams Final, I'll be in heaven.

If a sister wins, I hope that Venus does it. Seems as though people are writing her off because of Serena's good clay court season. A good warm up clay season means nothing. A la Capriati in 2001 and ASV 98. Venus did not have a bad one either, winning Amelia Island and a real close one with Clijsters in Hamburg. Not too shabby. Actually I believe that Venus will be the "minor" surprise and will be the one to reach the final.

But best of the luck to both!
Until Rena play Cap

Shane, do you have a fever?? LOLOL Just kidding of course... I am watching the Justine Henin vs Venus final at Amelia Island right now , and I couldn't agree more with your post . Anyway, I love the fact that the pressure is not on Miss Venus this time around:P...

Shane I am surprised, are you feeling ok? J/K

I would love to see an all Williams final, but if not I definetly want one of them to win. It would be historic since, it's been a while since a person of color has won RG. If anyone can break that barrier it's a Williams

GO GIRLS!

I'm leaning more towards Serena winning the title. Now if there is a Williams/Williams final I would still want Rena to win it all. I think it's just her time to take these grand slams. Jen doesn't really need it, Venus doesn't really need it, because they have already did it numerous times. This is Serena's breakthrough year, she has finally started to be the ruthless champion that she was in 99 and it encouraging to see her newfound confidence.

Go, Babygirl and show them all who's the best!!!!!!
