Red face for the first time in my life as a Williams fan....

I am truely torn between which sister I want to win. Though I've always liked Serena, she's never held a candle to Venus in my eyes. Slowly, Serena has eaten away at my heart, and I want her to win another major this year. I will be torn between the two of them on Saturday because it's been such a long time for Serena, and she's played so hard and committed herself so much this year. On the other hand, Venus has also committed herself, and she's playing very hard too. It doesn't make it any easier that neither sister has won at the French Open before. I don't like feeling this way. I can't really decide who I want to win now. If Venus loses, then there always seems to be Wimbledon and US Open for her. I just don't know. Whoever loses, I know they will feel bad because they've both played better than ever before at RG, and it will be a let down.




GOOD LUCK TO VENUS AND SERENA IN THE FINALS. MAY THE BEST PLAYER ON THAT DAY WIN!

Dammitt, Venus!!!

Even though I want Serena to win Im going to pull for whoever shows the most heart and tries the hardest to take it! Because in the ened whoever fights the hardest is the one who deserves it.

May the best player, on that day, be the winner.
Also, there are two more slams this year as well.

I know how you feel Daniel. I think it's so tough for me this time because both women have tried so hard this year at the French Open, and it's going to be bittersweet for me whoever wins.

Hail I so agree with this topic. I just am torn between two Williams. I do feel that when crunchtime comes though that deep down I know a part of me, will be wanting Venus to take home this grandslam. I really want Venus to win the French Open, I want her to get 5 slams. Let Serena have Wimby and the US Open.

Oh but hey Serena worked hard for this, and she deserves it as well.

Please, please let Serena win. I can see in her eyes how badly she wants this.

I just hope serena wins. she deserves another grand slam so bad
I hope too that it's a great match and we get rid of all the crap that they don't play when facing each other for good

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I want Venus to win. There's little doubt in my mind at this point.

What makes the difference for me is their attitudes. While I think that both of them have great attitudes period, Venus seems to have the bigger heart. I've heard her say things like she feels confident that Serena will reach #1, how she wants Serena to do her best, and other positive things about Serena and the Williams family. Serena, OTOH doesn't really mention Venus like that. Serena seems to be more concerned about her own progress and achievements. It was like that at other tournaments where they were pitted against each other. I don't want to come across as knocking Serena in any way, because I love her to death. But Venus seems to sincerely almost care more for Serena than herself. Venus has a huge heart, and that's why I want her to win.

Bright Red, that's just because Venus is the big sister. That is how big sisters think, and I am speaking from experience here. Serena is younger and esp. in a large family, the younger kid is always scrambling to catch up.

that being said, I want Venus to win too.

I am not torn -- my loyalties lie with Big sis. I so want her to teach lil sis a clay court lesson... Have you noticed that she is not hitting the ball as hard as she normally does throughout this fortnight ???? hmmm...

Go Venus!!!!

Serena really needs this one. She hasn't gotten one in 3 years. Hopefully she can stop the queen, because it would be such a shame if a player as good as her can't win a slam. Venus really doesn't have anything to prove, so I'm going with Serena. Vee can take Wimby.
