THIS IS WONDERFUL!!!

Alot of tennis lovers have been waiting a long time for this. History is made and it is nice to see, especially when it concerns your favorites. Although even if it were two other sisters I would still be happy that I lived through the moment.

Gumbycat - Unfortunately, Richard also said that SERENA was the better player of the two sisters and this could mean a lot of trouble for VENUS.

VENUS may now be limited to only 1 or 2 Grand Slams per year at this rate.

Also a huge congrats to Monica Seles who is now ranked #4.

Keep on climbing Monica as I would love to see you at #3. Waiting on Chanda to round this all out. I think Chanda can get high as #4 too. I have this Chanda will rise high in rank feeling.

Also I would not mind if Seles gets to #1 and moves back and forth with Venus and Serena.

WOW, play consistent and it looks like Venus has locked up the #1 ranking. Just has to win one of the next two slams.

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

UHHH... I think Venus had better win BOTH Wimby and US Open.

She was champ last year, remember?? Serena is only 300 points behind and will get 200 bonus points if she beats #1.

I am just glad that I lived and watched tennis is the era of the Williams Sisters. This is truly a great time in tennis history, and like Chrissie said it probably will never happen again that 2 sisters would be tennis champions.

Go Team Williams

I am not conceited, I am just convinced
