At the US Open I don't want an All Williams Final

Serena has won two Grand Slams this year and Venus has none. Venus has not won a US Open Title since 2001. So I want to see Venus win the US Open without the added drama of facing Serena.

Well, both Venus and Serena play exceptionally well at the USO.

You're f**ked!

Re: At the US Open I don't want an All Williams Final

I want Venus to win this year's USO no matter who she faces in the final.

*Venus*Serena*Kuznetsova*Schiavone*Taylor*Bartoli* *A.Bondarenko*Zheng*Duval*Safarova*Kirilenko*

*Federer*Nadal*Djokovic*Tsonga*Murray*Monfils*Gulb is*Young*Wawrinka*Mirnyi*

You know what? Then tell the rest of the field to step up their games. Because Venus and Serena are sure to bring theirs.

You don't close your eyes, even for a milli-second,
when Serena is backed into a corner and looking to bust out.

Re: At the US Open I don't want an All Williams Final

Serena could well be facing someone else if she makes it to the final.

Björk
Imperious in victory. Never conceiving the possibility of defeat. The greatest of her era. The self-belief, that smile, backhand, muscles, serve, personality, all larger than life. There's no greater sight in women's tennis than watching Serena J. Williams go to work.
The others are Great, but Serena's the Greatest

Re: At the US Open I don't want an All Williams Final

Stop making errors and attack the net like she does at Wimbledon and she will have an US Open title.

If Venus really looked at the video of Dementieva and Serena (which she mentioned she was going to do), she would have noticed that Serena is slicing a lot on her backhand side.
She's not as fast on that side compared to her forehand side.
Instead of going after her forehand which is the obvious thing to do after the semis match, go after the backhand with angles, wait for the slice and then come in.

She didn't do it enough.

I hope there is another All Williams final.
Maybe that way I can see if Venus learned her lesson.
But with the way she played today, I could see Venus losing to a Dementieva or Azarenka on a hard court.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."
-Charlie Strong, assistant head coach of the Florida Gators

Black presidents of the US=1
Black head coaches in the SEC=0
Something needs to change.

Venus hasn't gotten there in 7 years and hasn't won in 8. Don't worry you're safe.

I would like to see Venus win too, but it's up to Venus.
