Similarities of 2005 & 2007

2005 and 2007 are looking so similar, I just wanted to point some stuff out and hope that others could comment on others I missed.


1. Serena winning the Australian Open.
2. Serena beating Maria Sharapova at the Australian Open.
3. The Australian Open Final blowout. (2005: 6-0 third set; 2007: 6-1 6-2)
4. Justine missing the Australian Open.
5. Venus losing early('05)/not playing('07) AusOpen.
6. Sharapova beating Venus in Miami.
7. Venus & Golovin playing only for the second time and once again on the green clay courts.

I know there's more so name them if you wish. I just thought it was interesting. I hope, for Venus & Serena's case, that this year turns out better than 2005. It already has; Serena winning Miami.

Re: Similarities of 2005 & 2007

Yeah, I know this year is going to be better than 2005 for the williams sisters
But it's going to be better for Serena

Venus will surprise us as she did in Wimbledon 2005 but I don't know in wich Grand Slam, I hope in the French Open because I really want to see her winning it at last.

But the big diffrence is that Venus and Serena will not have any injury in 2007, I really believe that

I wish her always Good Luck and always pray for them all the nights.

Hope they dominate this year like they did in 2003

Venus and Serena

Re: Similarities of 2005 & 2007

I think the similarities you mentioned...but I think the major difference this season is that Serena and/or Venus didn't get injured so far for the year...they are really protecting themselves this season so as to avoid repeating the past 2 seasons....o0o0o another similarity would be a major Serena jump up the rankings.....

AO 05: Serena jumped from 8 to 2 (fastest jump from someone outside the top 2 to inside the top 2)
AO 07: Serena jumped from 81 to 15

I hope it's like '05 for the sake of some of my favorites careers.

True. But I still feel like the 4th round is early, for Venus.

However, I like better to see Lindsay happy and pregnant than to watch her lose again 9-7 in the third to Venus

Re: Similarities of 2005 & 2007

i thought that 02 and 07 have been really close so far, those are the two years everyone has been talking about previously

all the same tier1 winners so far, stuff like that

*Hantuchova*Cibulkova*Radwanska*Pennetta*Giorgi*

*Stephens*Hampton*Riske*Dulgheru*

*Anyone playing Wickmayer*

Momo won Antwerp again.

Quote:
19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Re: Similarities of 2005 & 2007

But huge difference: no Mary!

Cara Black - Liezel Huber - Mary Pierce

Chanelle Scheepers - Abigail Spears - Vladka Uhlirova - Mervana Jugic-Salkic - Francesca Schiavone -Tsvetana Pironkova - Lisa Raymond - Sophie Lefèvre...

Re: Similarities of 2005 & 2007

Justine wins RG.
Another RG blowout final.
Venus loses in the 3rd round of RG.
Sharapova makes the second week of RG.
Serena loses in the second round (withdraw) of a clay court tournament (i.e. Charleston '07; Rome '05)
Amelie loses early at RG... oh wait that always happens.

Any more?

Re: Similarities of 2005 & 2007

Ana makes the later stages of a Slam again (RG '05 was the only other time she made a Slam QF).

Mary Pierce appears on court for a French Open final.
