Odds of an all Williams Final

Venus and Serena are in opposite sides of the draw and playing on their favorite surface (Venus for sure). They both look fitter and stronger (especially Venus) as much as I love Ana and respect many of the other players on tour this is the only outcome that I see happening.

I was thinking the exact same thing. It almost seems like guaranteed money in the bank with Venus winning it all.

Re: Odds of an all Williams Final

Every time they are on opposite sides, we get excited.

Let's take it one match at a time, remember Srebotnik and Pennetta?

But I am liking the chances.

Re: Odds of an all Williams Final

Be realistic It's not 2002 or 2003 anymore. They can lose on any day. IT could happen, but I wouldn't say a Williams final is a "guarantee"

it's very possible, i hope Venus comes out on top this time though.

Re: Odds of an all Williams Final

serena has a relatively better chance to reach the final
venus

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.

Re: Odds of an all Williams Final

^ Not Nakamura, Morigami.

It's possible but I wouldn't put my money on it...the girls have a tendency to let expectations slip (Australian Open, French Open this year) so I'm not really sure, but I definitely hope it will happen.

Re: Odds of an all Williams Final

very very slim.(even though grass is thier favorite surface.)
i have feeling that one of the sisters will be taking the flight home early.(most probably serena, her draw looks bit tough.)
Venus shouldn't have much problems in her sections.(she has good chance of reaching finals.)

Sania Mirza.

Re: Odds of an all Williams Final

I hope so. They've both got a decent draw for the first time in a while. I don't know if they will but I know that they should. Only Sharapova can be rated as highly as them on grass and even then Sharapova is the weekest of the three on this surface. I really hope we get another all Williams final! If it's going to happen again it should happen at Wimbledon.

Serena Williams

Re: Odds of an all Williams Final

As I have been waiting for another all Williams final I would be thrilled. However, I have a feeling that there will never been another one. Hopefully they will prove me wrong. I only hope at least one of them wins the title.
