How many WILLIAMS - WILLIAMS Grand Slam finals in 2003?

I thought that the three WILLIAMS-WILLIAMS Grand Slam finals in 2003 would be the most that this great duo could ever perform, but with the apparent decimation of the current top ten I am almost tempted to say that VENUS & SERENA could duplicate that feat once more or even make it a clean sweep in 2003.

However, I think that it would be a much better prediction to say that there will be two all WILLIAMS finals in 2003, but there is still a good possibility that all of the Grand Slam singles titles will be swept by the WILLIAMS unless one or two players can really step up to the plate and play some great tennis in one or more of the slams.

Go WILLIAMS!

Although I could picture one of them in each of the finals.

Barring injury at least two.

1. Australian Open - history tells me probably not. But Serena has her eyes on that prize. Venus is going to get pit bull mean, so I would not rule it out.

2. French Open - It might be tough for both Sisters to again reign on the clay. Possible though and I definitely would not bet the house against it.

3. Wimbledon - Count this one! Serena played at the highest level ever witnessed this year. Venus never loses on grass (except to baby sis). The W in Wimby stands for Williams.

4. U.S. Open - A Williams has owned the crown since 1999. No one other than a Williams has seen the finals since 2000. Chalk it up for next year as well.

So you see definitely two. Even if they both donot make the finals of the other two. I agree with Jarrett at least one Williams will make it.

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!
SERENA PRINCESS OF POWER

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
Françoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.

Tsequoia - A great post and I agree with your assessment and analyst completely.
VENUS & SERENA are trying to make Wimbledon and the U.S. Open titles a Williams family heirloom. Even more so, the other players are beginning to concede these titles to the WILLIAMS before they even play in them

I expected a WILLIAMS to win the OZ title before the Roland Garros, but I was surprised with their ability just as the other players and most fans were when they both appeared in the Paris final.

Yes, I would like four VENUS & SERENA GS finals next year, but I will gladly enjoy two all WILLIAMS GS finals appearances.

I say sure locks for Wimbly and US Open!!!

but possibly French again

No doubt at least two and maybe 3. I HOPE ALL FOUR!!!!!!









I do think that one of them if not both will make it to the finals in all four of the 2003 Slams!

Further thought about it, I have to be honest and sy at least three. Venus will be hungey for Aussie Open, I dun think Serena will drop her level

Wimbly and US are them deadlock, coz the court surface is too fast.

I can see Kim or Justine or Amelie or Monica (fingers crossed) ruins the Williams party in French open though

Hmm I'd agree that Wimbledon and the UsOpen are an all-Williams affair. For some reason I just dont think they will repeat at OZ, or the French for that matter.

So I'd say atleast 2

Two.

Two. Don't forget, they have to stay on the opposite sides of the draw and make it to the final. I can see Venus falling to #3 at some point.
