Bud Collins: VENUS Will Win

Bud Collins - MSNBC
----
"While picking a winner in the bottom half of the menís draw is close to a crapshoot, both Venus and Serena Williams are the clear-cut favorites in the womenís draw.



Top-seeded Venus is my pick to win the tournament. True, Venus has lost her last three matches against younger sister Serena. However, I feel that Venus is hungry to defend her title here and she would relish the opportunity to do that in the finals against Serena to help ease the pain of little sisterís triumph against her in the finals at Wimbledon earlier this summer.
----
"Psychic" Bud is giving Madame Cleo a run for her money with his predictions.
I hope that this one comes true as well.

Actually I picked Venus to beat lin-c before the tournament. But an v-s final would be great too.

Venus wants this title and she is as testy as I have seen her. She is the energizer bunny on the court, while Serena is in cruise control. Venus should defeat Mauresmo, while I do not believe Lindsay even has the stamina to stay with the Princess. So the finals will be a Williams' affair. Venus will have alot of pressure, but I am rooting for her to pull out a victory over Rena. Sorry Rena, Big Sisters need slams too.

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!
SERENA PRINCESS OF POWER

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
FranÁoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.

Sorry but Bud's half-right and half-wrong. I know this will hurt but Serena will not make it to the final. I have put a spell on her for wearing that Catwoman outfit and making my husband drool all over her once again. Yes, dammit, I'm jealous and she will not win I tell ya, never never never!!!!!!!!!! Go Lindsay!!!!!!!!!!!LOL

I think it will be close, and I can't tell who will win. If both of the sisters get through to the finals, I am going for Vee. Even though with Serena's form, I wouldn't be suprised if she won.

I pick a Venus and Serena final, with Serena coming through in the end. Serena just seems mentally tougher than Venus right now and her game seems to be back clicking. I think her loss to Chanda in LA was a wake up call and refocused Serena to the task at hand. I think Serena will defeat Lindsay in two easy sets tomorrow and wouldn't be suprised if Serena finally got her double bagel over Davenport.

Well, Kay, wear a catwoman outfit too; that should keep your husband posted! I think.

TSequoia01, I second your comment: "Big Sisters need slams too".

TennisPower,

I hate that outfit, plus my hips and butt arent as big as hers. It was a joke anyway, but I still hope she loses(just kidding), not really.
