Blast From The Past. 1999 Lipton Final (V&S on TTC now!

The Tennis Channel is showing the sisters in the Lipton Final from 1999.

I am not a fan of Williams finals but to se a match this old with the beads, the chic outfits, and to watch the differences between then and now is really fun.


It's 2008 and I'm shopping for a new fave. Hell no! And Venus is still playing?


I Love You, Roger and Venus, 5-time Wimbledon Champions!

The one I'd really like to see is their first match AO 98

I heard Venus was booed at the end of her match against Graf in the semis of this tournament. Does anyone know why?

Re: Blast From The Past. 1999 Lipton Final (V&S on TTC now!

This is one of my favorite Venus outfits. There is no doubt in my mind that Venus has been the best attired tennis players ever. Whoever was designing her Reebok outfits back then had a nice funky style. Her colours always used to be well combined and coordinated and suited her youth well.

Whatever happened to those threads about your fave Venus outfit? Boy, those were the days.

As for her tennis, she used to play with so much variety when she was younger. I really miss the old Venus's game. You didn't have to drag her by the nails to the net, either, and she picked up a shot almost from her shoe laces a few games ago which was so well done.

It's a fun match at times while being poor on Serena's part at other times, but it just shows how far she came to dominate the way she did. Nice choice by TTC. I've enjoyed the classic matches of late.

Re: Blast From The Past. 1999 Lipton Final (V&S on TTC now!

how anyone could call serena a ball basher shocks the shit out of me. serena has such a varied game, especially compared to her sister.

ROCK ON:
elena dementieva, serena williams, caroline wozniacki, ana ivanovic
david nalbandian, rafael nadal, andy murray, gael monfils, jo-wilfried tsonga
