Williams Fans: Get ready.

After all this success and the doubts being dismissed, are we spoiled? When Serena was down in the second set and even match points, I was like .. she'll win. And of course, she did.

And now, after all their absences, we will know have a Williams Sister competing every week until the week after the French Open.
Venus: Amelia, Charleston, Warsaw, Istanbul.
Serena: Charleston, Berlin, Rome.

We will have a Williams every week, be prepared!
Venus' goal of Top 16 is out of the question due to the inflating of the rankings. But she should get into the Top 24 to avoid seeds 1-8 in the R32. Serena's goal: Top 8.

The clay season is about to start .. Venus and Serena are ready to recapture the WTA Tour.

Re: Williams Fans: Get ready.

Venus & Serena back for domination

I'm so proud of Serena and Venus equally very much. I'm happy to see Venus with such a heavy schedule I hope she won't be tired for Roland Garros! But she may withdraw... hopefully not.

Maybe another Serena/Justine showdown in Berlin

Q-Ball(14)- Seoul'12, Hobart'13, Katowice'13, Roland Garros'14, Bogota'15, Rome'15, Nottingham'15, Bad Gastein'15, Baku'15, Quebec City'15, Seoul'15, Tokyo'15, Charleston'16, Katowice'16
TT(9)- S: ITF- [50k]Hong Kong'15, Ilkley'15, [10k]Hong Kong'15 D: WTA - Shenzhen'16 ITF- St. Petersburg'15, Medellin'15, Kirkland'15, Tel Aviv'15, Hong Kong'15 (w/Daniela-Is-Mine)

Re: Williams Fans: Get ready.

Serena and Justine are bound to meet on red clay before the French. I can't wait!!!
I think we will see four clay court titles from the Williams sisters combined before the French. Hopefully more.

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: Williams Fans: Get ready.

well that depends on how Venus plays.....Serena is playing fine but Venus has to get the kinks out of her game before she can win like in Memphis...plus they need draws like this Amelia Island draw...where Venus has a highly probable shot at the finals

agreed. i'll bet there will be some withdrawals. hopefully not too many as they'll probably need the practice to go far in RG.

venus is, however, a great clay courter. serena's pretty good too.

ROCK ON:

Re: Williams Fans: Get ready.

Is Serena continues to win, and if by any chance, Venus gets her act together and also starts winning, we should also be ready to hear that WTA has become boring again.

Re: Williams Fans: Get ready.

after the last few years I think everyone will appreciate it tho

in 2002 that was during a period on where Womens tennis was really good quality wise and people claimed it was boring as it was just Venus and Serena then the rest.

What I am saying back then people could be picky as it was during a time of great quality in tennis

the last few years have not been that strong when you compare to like 1998-2003/04

Queen Vee, Super Rena, Krazy Kuzzie
