That's why I said earlier, it works in theory, not in practicality, especially against her mentally stronger sister.
It's funny, I was a Serena fan first (even though Venus turned pro and had success before her sister did). I had already read up about them, and read their fathers comments from when they were a lot younger, and leaned toward Serena. A lot of Venus fans liked her, simply cause she turned pro and had some success first. Makes sense.
Of course, Serena had even more success at an early age than her sister, and won a major in 1999. A lot of Venus fans were happy, stunned, upset, flabbergasted. You name it; the full range. Some even jumped ship to Serena and pretended they never did so.
It was crazy. For the diehards that remained, it got worse as Serena started beating Venus at tournaments and slams. Though the media would make a big deal about it (and both sisters supposedly hated it), you always got the feeling, Serena really didn't mind or care as long as she won. That just made it worse. But Venus was an absolutely incredible talent. Just scary! But she lacked her sisters venom, adaptability and consistency.
Whew! Those were the days though.
