Winning Weekend for American Women!

Three of the best American women to play the game (Serena, Venus and Lindsay) won titles this weekend:

On Friday, Serena (and Mardy Fish) won the Hopman Cup for the U.S. defeating the Serbian Team of Novak Djokovic and Jelena Jankovic (7-6, 6-2).

On Saturday, Venus Williams defeated Maria Sharapova (6-4, 6-3) to win the JB Group Classic (in Hong Kong).

Also on Saturday, Lindsay Davenport won her 3rd title in 4 tournaments since returning to the game after giving birth to her 1st child, Jagger. Lindsay beat Aravane Rezai (6-2, 6-2) to win the Auckland Classic in New Zealand.

CONGRATULATIONS LADIES! Awesome start to the season.

Re: Winning Weekend for American Women!

I'd rather have American men domination, something tennis in the States desperately needs.

Re: Winning Weekend for American Women!

its great for them but there is nothing there (american tennis) after these 3. i dont see a top 20 prospect for the usa right now which is worrying. venus, serena and davenport are true champions but how long can america rely on them to keep picking up the titles?

Y'all been saying that for about 5 years now.

I say dance while the music is playing.



If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

I was there when the ALL BLACKS won the World Cup in 2011!!!

you may dance now but england had loads of good/slam winning players in the 60's and 70's now look at british womens tennis. we have a slam, we have the money yet we still dont have the players but then british tennis buried there heads in the sand in the late 80's saying someone will come along look where that got us.

im not taking anything away from venus, serena and davenport but they were doing this in the late 90's, wheres the next generation to chalenge them in america?

Re: Winning Weekend for American Women!

Thanks for your comment "dodoboy" and thanks for supporting the site. I enjoy keeping fans in-the-know as it relates to Serena (on and off the court). She gives tennis the type of "energy" (and interest) that it so desperately needs.

Re: Winning Weekend for American Women!

If all 3 are injury free, there is no excuse for not winning the Fed Cup

Go Lindsay, Venus and Serena
