Venus proves once again she is NOT Serena's rival
Venus Williams proves time and time again when it matters most she always loses to Serena. These Williams Sisters match ups are boring because 9 times out of 10 Serena wins. The only "surprising" win for Venus was last year's Wimbledon final when she finally got her head and body together and beat Serena in straight sets in a major match.
Venus just doesn't have the killer instinct against Serena and this weakens women's tennis. Women's tennis NEEDS women to challenge Serena and I am so happy the Belgians are back!
The WTA is very happy that the Belgians are back because they are the only women that can challenge Serena consistently. The majority of the Russians are a joke. Safina, Dementieva are not slam champions. The Serbs are going nowhere but down.
Perhaps, Sharapova and Kuznetsova can "challenge" Serena but they can't do it consistently. Venus was never Serena's rival. Yes, I know Serena is the superior player. I remember reading an article in the Guardian this year and Serena said Venus "doesn't mind losing to me". And I believe it. Thank goodness, Kim showed Serena at the US OPEN she had better take the Belgians seriously because they will be very hungry in 2010. As for the young players who cares there is nothing special about them. Azarenka is mentally weak and fragile. Wozniacki the media are hyping this Danish chick but she lacks the firepower to challenge the "real" elite players.
