Re: Best and Worst in '06 For Venus and Serena?

When the highlight of your season is a mixed doubles final (not a title, mind you, but a final), you had a bad year, and Serena didn't even get that far. There was no "Best" in 2006 for either Williams sister.

Best Win- Beating the overrated Ivanovic at the USO

Worst Loss- Getting beat by Dani at the AO

Re: Best and Worst in '06 For Venus and Serena?

Serena W- Ivanovic
L- Mauresmo (if she wasn't out of gas, it would have been a WIN)

Venus W-Hingis
L- Hingis (both of them had bagels and STILL lost )

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Serena.

I really don't think Venus underestimated Pironkova. I just think she played REALLY bad .

Re: Best and Worst in '06 For Venus and Serena?

Venus:

best win- Against Hingis in Warsaw. Venus's commitment on show for the world to see

worst loss- Against Pironkova. Served for the match at 6-5. serve percentage all over the place, looked very flat

Serena:

best win- Serena defeating myskina in first match back in Cincinatti

Worst loss- Against Momo at the Open. Had all the momentum going into the final set. *sigh*

Best: Hingis (Warsaw),Schnyder (Rome,FO) 2x, Ivanovic (LUX) - I think all four were awesome....

Serena:

Best: Myskina (Cincinnati)
Worst: Jankovic

Re: Best and Worst in '06 For Venus and Serena?

Y ru people saying that losing to Daniela was Serena's worst loss.. I think losing to Vera was way worse, and it was when she was back in shape (pretty much) and lost easier, 6-2 6-3.. THats her worst loss

Daniela Hantuchova : WaKe uP FrOm thiS NiGhTmArE!!!!
Serena Williams : Finally BaCk to HeR DoMiNaTiNg SeLF!! WhEn ShE's PLaYiNg!

Jelena Dokic : ShOw uS WhAt yOu CaN dO!
