Are we seeing a sister role reversal?

Remember when Venus was dominating, Serena where the error-prone one. She was unable to close out matches, let leads slip away, not fulfill others expectations. Now Serena is the one playing well and Venus is the one struggling. If things begin to click, then they both will be back soon. Im sure I'll get alot of comments for this thread lol

I think Venus will be fine once we get into June

Re: Are we seeing a sister role reversal?

No, because Serena has been playing better than Venus for almost five years now. It's not some sudden thing.

And it isn't a matter of "clicking" for Venus. She has some serious work to do.

You don't close your eyes, even for a milli-second,
when Serena is backed into a corner and looking to bust out.

Re: Are we seeing a sister role reversal?

over simplified way of seeing things. dont think one sister has anything to do with the other. you might as well take venus and compare her myskina, or clijster, or any other random player. if you want to make comparisons you can use any two players and find just as many similarties and patterns with their tennis.

serena is serena and venus is venus. got to keep saying this until it sinks in.

Re: Are we seeing a sister role reversal?

Well, I think today was just one loss and I hope that this will not effect Venus for the rest of the clay court season. Venus played bad and Tatiana played some amazing points. It was just one of thoose days. There are still some more tournaments for Venus to play before Roland Garros and I still believe she can do excellent things in tennis !

Re: Are we seeing a sister role reversal?

Im not comparing them at all Tennisjunky. I feel that Serena's game has matured and Venus needs that big win to get back to where she was just like Serena did back in 2001-2002.

Venus has been fucking up ever since her ab injury. She just isn't serving as well as she used to.

Re: Are we seeing a sister role reversal?

Serena's been playing better than Venus for a long time now. Face it Serena is the better player. I will still pick Venus over Serena on grass because Vee's net game is superior but Serena has the more error free game.


Venus makes to many errors and her footwork is not like Serena's. Vee is fast but I think Serena has better raquet control and footwork. Also Serena's mechanics are better than Vee's. Serena's serve is fluid. She has some superior angle shots that just open up the court.


Venus still has slams in her, in fact I still pick her on grass and hardcourt but she will not be as consistant day in and day out as Serena Williams.

Re: Are we seeing a sister role reversal?

They are both different people and we need to treat them as just that. It is like wondering why Alicia has struggled to enter the top 20 again when Hingis did it in one season.
Venus will be back. The talent is still there.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Re: Are we seeing a sister role reversal?

Serena was always a better player than Venus. Not that Venus losing to Golovin is that bad a loss, Tati is a top 20 player and is in great form. She has beaten Venus on clay before.

Re: Are we seeing a sister role reversal?

Serena is simply better than Venus, much better techniqually and more power and accuracy. Its always been that way apart from when Serena first hit the tour and lacked experience.

Martina Hingis has won Roland Garros 2007!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Are we seeing a sister role reversal?

Serena is better lets be honest here. Venus just doesn't have the DESIRE or the HUNGER to change her game. Expect these crappy results to continue.
