Nemesis: If _______ hadn't existed, _____ would have so many slams

Venus lost six slam finals to Serena
Lindsay Davenport lost three slam finals to Venus
Kim Clijsters lost three slam finals to Justine Henin


Any other nemesis combinations you can think of?

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

I think those are the biggest ones. Sanchez-Vicario and Graf.

Unfortuantely, Günther Parche and Seles probably is up there too.

Venus and Serena, Serena and Justine too.

If Navratilova hadn't existed, Evert would have had 30 slams. And the record for the most slams everywhere but Australia.

I think it'd be the other way around buckerooo....

Venus was the one who was a prodigy when she was a child, and its not because "she had Serena" a 8 year old to hit with.......

Serena became the player she is, because SHE had a prodigy to hit with.

Venus Ebone Starr


Serena Williams

Sharapova

Hantuchova
