All Williams Final - O.K. By Me

Don't mean to start a war here or anything, but I want to see a women's single final with the highest quality of tennis and sportsmanship possible. If that means Serena vs. Venus, that's fine by me. I have this feeling that they both want to win this one badly. This should make for a good final.

It's ok as long as they play well. The way Serena played today there is no way she will lose to Daniela/Justine or Lindsay.
Venus is the only one who has a chance to stop her. Jennifer can be competitive only if Serena is off or nervous.

Seles/Henin would be great...or Seles/Davenport *provided Monica wins.

Wait a minute! Who doesn't want to see the two best players in the final?

I think most serious fans of tennis do want to see the two best players in the final. But I've read and heard LOTS of comments from people who don't want to see an all-Williams final. That's why I started the thread, to remind people that what we should want to see is simply the best tennis being played by women in the world today. So far in this tournament, it looks like it's the Williams sisters.

Even Hingis said that as a tennis fan she really appreciated the Wimledon final.

i dont want to see the two best women in the finals, cuz i dont want them to be the two best women players in the world, i want someone else, but of course, i have no control over it and can't deny that they aren't the two best, right now. I too would not MIND seeing them in the finals as it is very likey but only if they actaully play well, i dont mean wimbledon finals, people, that finals wasn't that good, juss cuz their level was a LITTLE bit higher, it was not that competitive and venus got her ass kicked, again. The only way i will enjoy a williams final is if they both play great throughout the whole match, neither one letting up, and both hitting winners and not errors. I know that is too much to expect and no one is perfect, but hell, everyone is making the williams sound so perfect and they ARE the number 1 and 2 players in the world, its what we EXPECT to see, right?

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

Wow Franny... that is a lot to ask.

And yeah, any final would be fine, I mean the players won 6 matches to get there, so it will be good. An all Williams' finals is just a big bonus...

VENUS
Serena
Lindsay Jelena Maria

Mary : Monica : Svetlana : Sania : Jennifer : Amelie
Roddick : Grosjean : David : Djokovic

I also like to see high quality tennis however im just wondering when the williams play in straight sets its not a competitive match but if they play i.e.... monica,hingis,davenport and beat them in two sets it was a very high quailty match?? Im not sure what ppl expect from them but i feel like everytime they play each other they are definatly giving it their all

yea

yea williams_rules, that is a lot to ask, but i figured, if i can hope that martina can win this us open, theres no reason why i can't hope that serena and venus play a flawless match

Well, I was fine with the idea of all-williams final when USO started last week. But, the way serena is playing has me worried that, if they both make it to the final, venus wouldn't have a chance (and I want venus to win this open). So, I am not sure if I am keen with the idea of all-williams final anymore.

Venus would be at Serena's mercy if this happens again.
