The Old vs The New

This is more than a clash between nations, this is a statement of power between 2 generations. 2 legends of tennis vs. 2 rising stars.

Who will win?

I feel the Serbs will prevail, and finally the page of tennis history will be turned once and for all.

Re: The Old vs The New

Well it didn't work for the Belgians when the Williams Sisters were both in the draw, I doubt it's going to work for the Serbs.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."
-Charlie Strong, assistant head coach of the Florida Gators

Black presidents of the US=1
Black head coaches in the SEC=0
Something needs to change.

Re: The Old vs The New

It's not Serbia v USA, it's Ana v Venus. I hate this nationalistic crap when it comes to tennis. Like Petrova wearing a Russian visor. It's an individual sport, except when they play Fed Cup or Olympics.

Oh, and BTW, I think Venus will trash Ana, unfortunately.

You hang onto that hope

Maybe someday it will work out for you.

Serena was really off and lazy though, maybe she didn't wake up on the right side that day... I felt bad for her.

Anyways, make room for the Serbian sisters!

Re: The Old vs The New

it is the first time since the us open 2004 that no Belgians or Williams-sisters reached the semi-final (and even final!) of a GS!!!

this could be the 'change of guard' - GS

but I doubt it
