Dilemma at possible Williams encounter!

With Venus Williams stating that when in form she cannot be beaten, we face a problem in a potential semifinal matchup! Assuming that both Williams sisters are in form, we get an unsolvable situation in week 2. Quite an interesting situation I believe, and I hope the conditions are met for this fascinating piece of physics mystery to be solved. What do you think will happen?

Re: Dilemma at possible Williams encounter!

Well perhaps they will beat themselves

Otherwise I agree, they would have to cancel the bottom half of the draw, make Serena vs. Venus the final and give them a trophy each

Eh. They both have so far to get that semi final. I'll wait until it actually materializes before making any statements.

Re: Dilemma at possible Williams encounter!



I'd say Venus would win though. Serena 2007's new approach with more spin, angles and safer hitting (along with slower movement) may be good against the rest of the tour, but it's not better against Venus. Plus, with no mental block, Venus may be too much.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.
