2000 with 2002 a close second.

Re: Venus' best year to date?

For me, it's between 2000 and 2002 but I chose 2000 because she won her first GS title. In 2002, she kept on losing to Serena

Re: Venus' best year to date?

2000 for sure because her first two majors came that year, and I think that's what really propelled her into elite player status.

Re: Venus' best year to date?

I would have to say 2000. 2001 and 2002 are close behind. Those were Venus' three best years in her career. 7 grand slam finals of the 12 played in those three years.

The Williams Sisters

It's great to be a fan of the two most talented women in tennis.

Only IDIOTS count out the Williams sisters!!!
Serena: 13 Slams, ranked: #1
Venus: 7 Slams, ranked: #2

Re: Venus' best year to date?

2002 even though she didn't win a GS, she had more titles and she was No. 1 part of that year.

Re: Venus' best year to date?

Don't forget Venus also won olympic gold in singles and doubles in 2000. Venus says she is just as proud of her gold medal as she is of her grand slam titles.

Re: Venus' best year to date?

2000, then 2001, then 2005, and then 2002.

Slams are always the best.

Re: Venus' best year to date?

2000 was her most succesful year on tour. But 2002 was close behind because she was dominating the tour with her sister. She just kept consistenly losing to Serena. But I'm hoping 2007 will be her best!!

And as for her worst year?
Hands down, no question 2006!!!!

Re: Venus' best year to date?

I just realized something, ladies and gentlemen. On October 31 of this year, at the ripe old age of 27, Venus Ebony Starr Williams will celebrate the 13th anniversary of her first professional match (d. Shaun Stafford 6-3, 6-4, Oakland first round). To answer the thread question, I would have to say Year 14.
