If you were Serena, would you trade any of your 8 Slams for Venus' 5 Wimby titles?

If you are in Serena's shoes, do you prefer to have your current 8 Slams, or trade any / all of them for the 5 Wimby titles Venus has?

Personally I wouldn't, 8 GS titles (winning at least once at all four) over Vee's 7 GS titles is enough for me.

8 for me. I prefer variety. At least one of everything shows that you are a true all-round player.

No, its three more plus a career slam. Few of the greats have managed to win all four.

Serena Slam would still beat about 20 Wimbledons.

But 5 Wimbledons is amazing.

Not the French, since its the only one she has and she has to keep all 4 that were part of the Serena Slam, everything else is up for grabs.

But Wimby is the ultimate.

I'd trade a couple of Aussies for a Wimby.

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

Maybe one AO title for Wimby, but nothing more.
She has 2 Wim titles herself.

A Grand Slam is a Grand Slam, doesn't matter where it's won.

Um it depends.

Serena Slam trumps them all.

But I would happily give up US Open '99, Wimbledon '03, Australian Opens '05 and '07. With the last, as long as I get to give Maria Sharapova another beatdown in a slam final.

I think Serena Slam is special. Also 5+ Wimbledons is special in its own way.

"I rather have 8 titles than 5 Wimby titles!" although I clicked in the wrong option. O_o

I'd swap an AO for a Wimbledon title but overall 8 titles are better than 5...or 7 for that matter. Having the slam is also just huge. 5 Wimbledons is a milestone, a monumental achievement but 8 which includes a grand slam is still better.

Serena's total slams and where they've come are impressive and Venus' five Wimbledons are also impressive. Both proud achievements.

21...

Now a better question is would Venus trade 4 of her Wimbledons to have 1 Australian and 1 French and get the career slam?
