Re: Serena hasn't had an "edge" over Venus since 2003
so true........ thats why Venus has the edge.... anyone who thinks otherwise is deluded....Serena is slow, if she wants the edge back she needs to get back into 2002 shape, which sadly for her is not possible at this stage in her career....
Serena's "devasting attacking tennis" is neutralized if you put her on the run....
Catsuitrena is still the most spectacular player I've ever seen. Right now, Venus can handle Serena's power better than most, and once she turns it to a running contest Vee has a slight advantage.
But Serena is sooo good that she can still turn alot of tough rallies with Venus to her advantage, and can still hit a lot of amazing winners as well. Her serve, when on, is still a devastating weapon.
Because of her slight disadvantage in mobility, I think Serena tries to go for a winner a touch too early sometimes against Venus. I also don't remember Serena hitting so many slices in a match against a fellow big hitter.
