Serena now calmer than Venus?

i dont know if its just me. but around about 2000 - 2004, u would hardly see a negative reaction out of venus and serena would be all

but now it seems the reversal, serena seems much more calmer and venus seems much more stressed out

anyone else noticed this?

Re: Serena now calmer than Venus?

With Venus it was the quiet confidence that was oozing out of her. She didn't have too much to be frustrated about. Serena on the other hand is passionate about every point nad constantly needs to clam down to keep her points in check.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

VENUS will always be the classier of the two but Serena is the better player.

Re: Serena now calmer than Venus?

Hmmm..nah, Serena will ALWAYS be more passionate and expressive than Venus. Just the way it is...and that's the main difference. Serena totally hates losing and that's why she plays better when she's down.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Re: Serena now calmer than Venus?

I think Serena is the same...Venus seems to show her emotions more now but not the same level Serena does

Re: Serena now calmer than Venus?

Serena shows a lot more emotion than Venus. But even when Serena shows she is frustrated she is able to calm her game down and cut back on errors to win. But Venus shows her emotion I think through her game and the errors come rolling in. That's pretty much what happened in the Golovin match, went for too much.

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

Concur, totally. But i don't think it's a reversal.

Venus lacks confidence and as we now confidence and self belief are important elements in tennis.

Re: Serena now calmer than Venus?

No, Serena is constantly working to calm herself down on court.
But Venus has been losing her cool more than she used to lately.

Re: Serena now calmer than Venus?

i love how serena goes for every single point and is always thinking. it's hard to find a player who goes out there and plays every single point like it is the last point of her life
