Williams versus Capriati

Everyone has enjoyed the fierce Jen and Serena rivalry which lil sis leads 10/7. But amazingly enough Jen has yet to defeat Venus (4-0). Wonder why this is? What is it about Venus that gives Jen such a hard time? I say it simply is a matter of styles. Jen seems to more easily run down Serena's shots. Does Venus hit the ball flatter? Or is it harder to get a ball by Vee?

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!
SERENA PRINCESS OF POWER

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
Françoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.

Re: Williams versus Capriati

Its a mental thing. Its not a competetive thing, although im a fan of both, Its a matter of Venus playing aggresive at the right times and jennifer being too defensive. Thats what it came down too. Venus does hit flat your right. Venus didnt have the same problems with Jen as serena did, for some reason she liked the more steady play of Capriati.

Maybe im wrong but to me it was just the lack of aggresion, plus Venus served HUGE when she needed to, so props for her. Jennifer had her oppertunities, she just didnt take em' Vee did. Look at 2001 they played 4 times that year, capriati was under pressure the whole time esp against Venus whom she had to beat to be the "real #1" thats pressure. Besides that she lost a close match in the finals at the NASDAQ Open and she had 8 match points, she played to not lose, not to win. That fucked her over. Both are awsome fighters and great woman in the end...

They played too little, and plus they played 2 times on Venus´s dominating period.
Capriati should have won one of those, but she choked and Venus does not need too much from her oponnent to get back in a match, she is always there fighting.

that was an awful match, and it was full of crap. She had 8 match points where she either dumped it into the net or Vee Outhit her because jen was feeding her short balls...it wasnt pretty.

They never had any good matches, they were all pretty average if not just forgettable. (other than the staredown)

Re: Williams versus Capriati

The 3rd set was good, exciting quality I thought. The first 2 sets were painfully crap.

That's because Venus didn't play.

If Jennifer/Serena's match quality was low, their was still
the fire there and niether was shy in expressing it which
made their match-up's IMO all the more exciting.

Venus during their match-up's didn't emote until after
the completion of the match. I always felt like their
match-up was Ashe/Connors-esque Wimbledon. Venus
calm and steady like Ashe & Jennifer fiery and emotive
like Connors. Jennifer IMO feeds off the opponents emotive
intensity.

Re: Williams versus Capriati

Also kind of like McEnroe/Borg....with Jen being McEnroe

Really, don't even look at me...

Id rather be McEnroe really, he had all the fun, plus he made more money!

Re: Williams versus Capriati

I think its just to hard 4 Jen to put balls away against venus. I watched the 01 USO semi and in the 1st set which was 6-4 Jenn only hit 2 winners. Venus covered to much court and had more power
