A 6th Wimbledon crown for Venus or a 2nd GS title this year for Serena ?

Assuming you're a WS fan. I'm much more of a Serena fan but I'm pretty torn because Venus owns Wimbledon and it would be so well deserved to win a 6th time, being 1 title short of Graf. On the other hand I really want Serena to pass BJK as all-time GS winners. In a perfect world I'd like Venus to win Wimbledon and Serena to win the USO. But I also wish we'll have a real competitive match this year if those 2 were to meet in the finals because the last 2 finals sucked.

So the opinion of non-WS fans arent welcome?

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

2008's final did not suck at all.

I want Venus to past Martina´s record, but realistic I think she´ll pass Graf, so I want her to win this year...

Of course it didn't, you're a Venus fan. Let's get real here. Serena sucked in 2008, Venus sucked in 2009. Maybe 3rd time's a charm.

eat all the grass you want, this is the only "slam" (if you can consider the conclusion of a four week "season", a slam) either of your crew is winning ever again.

Firstly, at the bold. And second, so to you there are only 2 real slams?

Re: A 6th Wimbledon crown for Venus or a 2nd GS title this year for Serena ?

I'd much rather have Venus win Wimbledon this year. She hasn't won a slam since 2008. Serena can and probably will take the USO (barring Kim and Justine placement in the draw being real close in proximity).

Venus wins the 2010, 2011, and 2012 Wimbledon and the Gold Medal in the Grass Olympics.

Then we can argue back and forth on who is the better All England Club player, Venus or Navratilova?

Venus "needs" it more. Serena can go ahead and grab all the other majors as many times as she wants...but leave Wimbledon for Vee
