WTA Dubai (S)F: (1) Serena Williams vs (6) Venus Williams

It's going to be very tough, but maybe Venus will get this one in 3.

I hope Serena retires before she wins the match Would serve you right.

Regrettably a life long fan of Ana Ivanović.

Re: WTA Dubai (S)F: (1) Serena Williams vs (6) Venus Williams

This will be very tough and I cringe to think about it.

Serena has been showing off her incredible fight and accuracy when she needs it. Venus has been more spectacular and on point. When these two play, however, it's about who wants it more, who can be more on point, who can hold back the errors.

I just feel Venus on this one.

Considering how both Sisters are playing this week, this poll should have been opened this morning, even before their matches.

Re: WTA Dubai (S)F: (1) Serena Williams vs (6) Venus Williams

Serena didn't win yet
But if she does, I'm going with Venus.

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Serena in 3 but I hope I'm wrong

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

It's funny when it happens once, but this is happening all the time. Don't start the thread until the match is over, it's not that hard.

Anyway, Venus will win.

Venus is playing terrific tennis, but Serena will always have the edge.

You forgot two options: Venus by retirement/walkover and Serena by retirement/walkover.

Re: WTA Dubai (S)F: (1) Serena Williams vs (6) Venus Williams

Why did you start before the match ended?

And why is it not a public poll

Rookie

Venus in 3

Very tough for either. So many variables; if Venus puts in as many seconds as today against Elena, advantage Serena. If Serena plays as flatly as she did for parts of her match against Ana Venus could break away and take the match.

(3)The stars have aligned perfectly for the upset of the 21st century. All the best Garbine
(4) There is no path to victory for Williams.Keys wins in straight easy sets.
