Re: WWW Peak Venus vs Peak Kim
Venus wins this even on clay. She wouldn't steamroll Kim but she'd win and pretty consistently. Peak Venus is tough to beat any surface and everyone knows it. She will probably be the one of the HOF inductees who people may feel underachieved by the time she is up for induction. I say this because of her 4 straight slam losses to her sister, the missed opportunities at Roland Garros and Australia will likely haunt her fans when she hangs it up because she has/had the game to win the career slam not sure how open that door is anymore though. Clijsters beat Venus when the auto-immune disease had taken noticeable toll on her fitness. The USO 2005 and 2010 matches stick out the most, Venus from 00-03 wins those contests likely in straight sets but she didn't have enough in the tank to put Kim away. Love Clijsters but Venus to me is a level ahead of Kim at her peak.
