From a Williams Fan

Congratulations Justine. It's not easy beating one Williams sister, but to beat both of them back to back is incredible, and she deserves to be commended for that - and she didn't lose a set to either! She's the best player for 2007, followed by Serena and then Venus. I have a feeling that these three will be battling it out over the next five or six years, and hopefully we can see them play in some finals and not the quarters/semis. Here's hoping for a blockbuster 2008!

Serena Williams
21-Time Grand Slam Champion

6 AO ('03, '05, '07, '09, '10, '15) 3 FO ('02, '13, '15)
6 WBN ('02, '03, '09, '10, '12, '15) 6 USO ('99, '02, '08, '12, '13, '14)

Re: From a Williams Fan

I would say congrats, but both sisters gave it away through stupid mistakes, so no, to me she's not the best player in the world.

I'm ready to get blasted, but I don't give a ----.

I Nadal. Serena Williams. Venus Williams

Like: Haas. Tsonga. Kiefer. Bartoli. Mirza. Zheng. Bolleli. Safina. Mauresmo. Monfils.Jie.


Hate: Djokovic. Lubjicic. Sharapova. Murray. Dementieva. Soderling.

Re: From a Williams Fan

That was a great effort by Henin although I think Venus let her off the hook a few times in the second set Justine still played well. Hopefully she didn't run out of gas beating both Williams sisters cuz it'll be a shame for her to pull off such a run and then lose in the final kinda like Martina did when she beat both back to back.

Re: From a Williams Fan



Justine, the Williams sisters and Jankovic are giving us some great tennis. These are the kind of matches we were hoping for for a long time. The top players struggled with injuries for too long, it's nice to see them back at their best, to see them battling it out.

Justine may have won this time, Venus certainly showed that she can beat Justine as well. Exciting times could very well be ahead.

Everything you do continues long after you've gone

Thanks Serena fan for the class! While I am a Justine fan. I will not gloat. Everyone has their day. JuJustill has to beat Sveta.
I just wish the childish bickering would stop. Buthey, that's what makes the boards fun!

Re: From a Williams Fan

Justine fans should never gloat; it's just annoying, imo.
Thx @ the threadstarter. You're very nice. It is of course indeniable that Justine did an amazing feat, and I'm very happy for it. because i feel it's a great reward for all the hard work she puts in.

Re: From a Williams Fan

This rivalry is way better than Federer vs Roddick. No DUH, haha. But yeah, Venus was classy as usual and tough of a competitor even when she felt a bit dizzy so props!

Re: From a Williams Fan

Justine played Federer like today. She had some great defense. Someone from up in the sky was with her today.

Re: From a Williams Fan

I love the sisters but they played some really sloppy tennis against Justine. Justine is almost pure perfection. I really don't see Serena and Venus beating her in the future unless they really step their game up a notch(and Serena loses some weight).

imo Venus played very well.
She didn't make a lot of silly erratic errors and she played a smart an mentally very sound match.
At the end both players were tired and both Venus and Justine lost their first serve%.
I don't think you can really say Venus played a bad match. she played very well. This match could have been hers if it wasn't for like maybe 4 points? It's those type of situation that make great matches.
