Venus and Serena- best current players?

Singles-Venus
4 Wimbledon
2 US Open
Olympic gold medal

Singles-Serena
3 Australian Open
1 French
2 Wimbledon
2 US Open

Doubles
2 Australian Open titles
1 French Open
2 Wimbledon
1 US Open
Olympic gold medal

Mixed- Venus
1 Australian and French Open
Mixed-Serena
1 Wimbledon and US Open

Do you think:
Venus can get career grand slam in singles?
-Australian she has a shot, she may be motivated if Serena does well to do well. French has a small chance if Henin gets injured.
Venus and Serena getting cAReer grand slam in mixed each?
-Serena hasn't played. Venus has attempted to get Wimbledon 5 times and came up short, I think she could.

Justine has to be up there at the least. She not world number 1 for nothing.

Re: Venus and Serena- best current players?

Venus is my alltime favorite player, but the two best current players are Serena and Justine Henin.

^ Agree. Venus will need to translate this form to more than just grass for her to be considered on the same level as Serena/Justine.

Re: Venus and Serena- best current players?

Im pretty sure Venus will have a good run at majors, if she wants it she can have Us Open and Australian *since it has a new surface that will help. IF serena stays healthy for US OPEN it will be hers.

Venus Williams (The Queen) , Maria Sharapova (The Diva) , Lindsay Davenport (The Legend) , Jelena Janković (The Exotic Beauty) , Serena Williams (The Princess) , Ana Ivanovic (the REAL Promise)

"People said, we weren't going to make it because we were from the 'hood. … People didn't believe in us because of where we came from." Venus Williams.

Re: Venus and Serena- best current players?

When they are healthy, they are the best players around. When they aren't healthy, they're still pretty damn good, too, but they are of course more vulnerable. Justine has really built up her skill, though. She can't be overlooked, especially on clay. For me, it's Serena, Justine, Venus. Those are the best players in the womens game.

Re: Venus and Serena- best current players?

At 27 I think she has another slam somewhere in here...well duh another Wimbledon of course She's the best player on Grass. Period! However I would have to say that Serena and Justine are the best current players on tour

Re: Venus and Serena- best current players?

If Vee can win like 2 more tournies and then the US Open or finals of the US runner up to serena or whatever, then yes.

I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.

Re: Venus and Serena- best current players?

No... Justine has been far more consistent than Venus... and Serena for that matter. Right now Justine and Serena are the best IMO.

Re: Venus and Serena- best current players?

Justine fans will say Justine, and Williams sisters fans will use sense, so its a pointless thread.

Yeah...as much as I dont like Justine..I mean I respect her...the girl can play some tennis...but i've never seen her as better than Venus or Serena. I've always said when they play their game..they are hands down without a question #1 and #2 (Venus and then Serena a very close #2) I probably would flip flop Sharapova and Henin at times for #3....but even Sharapova at her best (2004 ) I would give her the #3 spot with a very close #4 to Henin.

Venus and Serena ....Often imitated NEVER duplicated!!!!!!!
