Re: Poll: Which was the greater rivalry?

Serena and Jennifer matches most of the times had so much drama and there were rallies out of this world! But I voted Lindsay Venus because I think no other player in the history of tennis could beat Venus 14 times like Lindsay did!

Re: Poll: Which was the greater rivalry?

Venus v Lindz. Serena v Jennifer never had a 2005 WIMBLEDON sort of match!

It's so nice to reminisce on rivalries! The tour needs this atm! Venus and Serena's rivalry has been developing really well since Bangalore. Hopefully it will continue in Miami.

Re: Poll: Which was the greater rivalry?

Um, it's Lindsay and Venus I voted for them obviously, but personally I think Lindsay and Martina was even better.

Cap and Serena was great too, as was Venus and Martina! All 4 are up there in terms of highest quality matches.

Re: Poll: Which was the greater rivalry?

I hope this makes sense but I always (once Venus hit her stride as a Champion) expect Venus to beat Lindsay...now when Serena played J Cap I knew it would always be a serious scrap and I never took beating J Cap for granted.

With Venus I always felt that way when she played Hingis, not Davenport.

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

I was there when the ALL BLACKS won the World Cup in 2011!!!

Re: Poll: Which was the greater rivalry?

I say Venus vs Linds....That Wimbledon match that went 9-7 in the third was one of,if not the best Wimbledon final ever. Serena and JCap was more dramatic because they are both more extroverted and drama queens.

Re: Poll: Which was the greater rivalry?

Serena and Jennifer's matches always seemed more personal whilst they were on court and that gave their matches a little more of a fiery edge than Venus and Lindsay's matches. It used to always annoy me that Lindsay would go down tamely a lot of the time to Henin or Clijsters but fought hard when she had Venus or Seles in front of her.

Re: Poll: Which was the greater rivalry?

Serena vs. Jennifer is the best rivalry since Navratilova-Evert.

Yes, yes Seles-Graf? That rivalry was MAIMED, the matches post stabbing just didn't have that intensity they did before.

I think Venus-Lindsay is a great rivalry, but didn't Venus win all the big matches? 4-0 in Grand Slam finals, Lindsay managing that single semi win way back in '98.

(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.
