Venus is winning the US Open

Having Serena win is not as nice a consolation prize as it was at Roland Garros. Venus is winning the US Open, and order will be re-established.

Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Sorry but this what make Venus' fans get mad at the player who defeats them. I think you pressure her a lot, and expects a lot either, that when she loses it, everyone gets mad at the person who defeated her and enter in a real depression. This is not supposed to be a mean answer, it's just an advice..

I don't quite understand what you're saying, Volcana. Anyway, let's hope Venus wins the up coming US Open.

The only player that can challenge Serena right now is MONICA. They seem to have incredible matches. As for Venus, she's the past.

interesting, with all the talk of Lindsay and Martina finishing #1 w/o GSs, Venus Williams is putting her self in that position even though she is #2 right now. Interesting, indeed. I hope Serena wins the US Open over Venus again. I believe Serena is on a winning streak of 17 straight matches?

Maybe Kim is playing very good again by then and of course Martina and Lindsay are also back again.

Serena's on a 19 match winning streak. i don't think Venus has a realistic chance of ending the year No. 1. Serena has a 800 point lead over Venus. Venus is defending around 1800 points this summer, while Serena's only defending 1700 or so points for the rest of the year.

Serena will end the year No. 1
