Re: Before They Were
Well Serena, despite her Father's predictions, was pretty much in Venus' shadow early on- always bearing the title "Venus' little Sister, Serena." Stats wise, however, she rose up the ranks faster than any girl in the history of the rankings system from the time that she turned pro to the time that she broke into the top ten, as I recall. I'm sure somebody has a more accurate account, though.
In many ways, I think being in Venus' shadow helped Serena. While much of the ballyhoo and expectations were on Venus, Serena could kind of develop in a more low pressure environment and yet feel like she had something to prove. And we all know how Serena plays when she feels like she has something to prove.
