Am I the only one that feels Vee is the best when at her best?

It seems like everyone think POva, Henin, and Ree. But Venus has an all around game, and when at her best she is the true number 1 no if ands or buts about it.

Such keen insight.

Is this supposed to be a bait thread for her haters?

Because it's going to be hook, line and sinker.

But I do agree with you.

DON'T WAVE YOUR HAND AT ME GURLLL!

I think Richard said it best "if Venus puts her MIND to it, she is the best". sometimes i think she starts to think funny or gets tense. but when she's clear in mind, she is the best player.

Re: Am I the only one that feels Vee is the best when at her best?

If at her best means more than her stokes. Mentally off the radar even when she's been playing well. A.O., and almost every year she goes to RG.

I'd give the slight edge to Serena

Serena
Venus



Justine
Maria

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Venus is the most dynamic, powerful athlete since Steffi Graf when she's on, and almost unbeatable.

Serena gets the edge though, due to the mental aspects.

No, I think Venus is the best when at her worst.

Serena Williams

I think venus. She hits harder and cleaner, she just as tough mentally has ree, and she does more.

Re: Am I the only one that feels Vee is the best when at her best?

Unfortunately for Vee there have been more if ands or buts lately to counter this greatness.

Björk
Imperious in victory. Never conceiving the possibility of defeat. The greatest of her era. The self-belief, that smile, backhand, muscles, serve, personality, all larger than life. There's no greater sight in women's tennis than watching Serena J. Williams go to work.
The others are Great, but Serena's the Greatest
