Re: Every (3rd round) loss of Venus means the same round loss for Serena

Actually, Serena didn't play thr FO in 2005, and in 2007, Serena reached the QF. The superstition goes: if Serena loses first, Venus will probably lose in that same round.

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Serena.

In 2008, both at AO and FO Serena played first?

Can't remember

only know they played on the same day

Simona Halep
Juan Martin Del Potro

I don't think Serena will lose, but don't forget that MJMS was troubling Safina in Rome a few weeks ago.

Re: Every (3rd round) loss of Venus means the same round loss for Serena

Exactly. Think about it.

2009 OZ, Venus lost first. Serena wins.
2008 US, Venus lost first. Serena wins.
2008 W, Venus wins it.
2008 RG, Serena loses first, Venus loses right after: same round.
2008 OZ, Serena loses first, Venus loses right after the next day: same round.
2007 USO, Serena first, then Venus.

So Venus lost first .... Serena wins RG?

Re: Every (3rd round) loss of Venus means the same round loss for Serena

there is as much chance, if not more, of the queen of england joining the tour and winning the US Open than there is of Martinez Sanchez winning Wimbledon...

Martinez Sanchez' game is a carbon copy of Ruano Pascual's, without the great net skills...

therefore, Serena Williams WILL NOT lose in R3 this year

Did you watch her play in Rome a few weeks ago? I'm not saying she's going to win, but she's certainly playing better than Ruano Pascual.

Serena has to lose first for that to happen. i think Venus gets discouraged by serena's losses, serena on the other hand gets inspired by venus' loss. Come on Rena, win the day.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Re: Every (3rd round) loss of Venus means the same round loss for Serena

i dont want Serena to win. I think she has a clear lack of respect for the tour events and only shows up with serious play at the Slams. She's openly admitted to tanking matches, outside majors. Just for that reason, I hope she goes down. Not in the third rd, any will do.

Well, with MJMS playing like she did in Rome, she'd win. But it doesn't seem to be the case this week .

MJMS is a ten time better player than VRP. Unfortunately, her forehand is not a weapon.

P.S.
"the great net skills" of VRP deserves a special
