Re: Will Venus ever beat Serena at a grand slam again??

Let's see.

Australian H2H 1-1. Venus won their first ever meeting and Serena only R2 loss in a slam back when Serena was but a fledging.

Serena won the final that secured the Serena slam.

French. 1-0 Serena.

Won the '02 final. Definitely the favorite on clay.

Wimbledon. 3-2 Serena.

All three of Serena's wins have been the F. Venus won a SF in '01 and '08 finals. Serena leads Venus in finals 3-1.

US. 2-2.

Venus won '01 F, '05 R4. Serena won '02 F, '08 QF.

Overall, Serena has a more recent win over Venus at all four slams. '03 AO, '02 French, '09 Wimbledon, '08 US.

Venus' only chance is at Wimbledon, and even there I consider Serena the favorite given the way their finals have went.

Yes.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

I say Venus can still beat Serena at the hardcourt slams. I would not be so sure on clay though.

If it is in a final? Her odds decrease enormously.

Always bet on black!

Re: Will Venus ever beat Serena at a grand slam again??

Yeah, she will. Yall act like its the end of the world and Venus is going to retire after '09 Wimbledon! She's not done winning Gram Slams. She just came up short this time. There's always the US Open to get revenge, like Serena did last year.

Serena - 22 Grand Slam Titles -- 71 Singles Titles -- World Rank: #1 | 2016 Record - (31-4) 89%
Venus - 7 Grand Slam Titles -- 49 Singles Titles -- World Rank: #6 | 2016 Record - (21-9) 70%

She's only played Serena in a GS twice since she last beat her in a GS. Stop being dramatic.

How should we know? This is one of those many pointless threads which Williams fans like to start.
