Is it safe to say about the Williams Sisters?

Is it now safe to say?

The days of low quality, error-strewn matches between the sisters are gone for now!

Since the start of 2008, they have had great match after great match! Including a few epics!

2008 Wimbledon F, 2008 US OPEN QF & 2009 Dubai SF come to mind!

Yeeeahhh bring it on!

The quality has improved a lot between them. Their matches used to be pathetic. Also, they are more likely these days to play 3-setters than they used to be, as most of their early matches were over in straight sets.

i don' think the quality has improved that much. i think the other matches by comparison are so bad that their matches appear better.

i'm being facetious. "better" is subjective and relative.

They're getting better and better. Nobody can deny that...of course it's still hard for them: Sisters are sisters.. but much better than any Russian vs Russian final, no?

Always bet on black!

Today's match was not good quality. The Wimbledon final and US Open quarterfinal last year were the best, and the quality of the matches between the two has improved, but today's certainly wasn't.

Totally agree. Their matches in the old days were terrible affairs and one of the reasons for believing they were fixed. Their matches nowadays are far better and more competitive with both players looking like they want to win.
