Serena v Venus-who will be AO champ?

Will it be the Serena Slam or will Venus take the first GS of the year?

I can't not back Venus in a GS final. A some, point, being a fan obscures my judgement.


For sane people

1 - Are the blisters on Serena's foot a problem?

2 - Can Venus get to net enough, and put away her volleys?

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

The way Serena was moving at the end of the match, I don't think the blisters should be a problem.

Venus won't get to net enough against Serena, especially on Ace. This match should be anti-tennis at its finest.

I wish and Hope Venus wins this.. go Venus.. get that 1st serve in... maybe Serena losing would have given Venus the title. but u can do this Ven u did this before.. Kick her ass

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

I hope Venus wins. She has to serve very well, Serena will take advantage on Venus 2nd serve, but I think Venus will take it.

GO VEE!!!

VENUS WILLIAMS
SERENA WILLIAMS

i really don't know, i don't know if serena is going to pick up her game, and i don't know how venus is going to play, venus picked up her game against hantuchova and henin, but really this is a toss-up for me, i think pam shriver is even going to call it a toss up. venus can bring her game to serena's level, and what will be interesting to see is, if serena does raiser her level, will venus finally do the same?

I want and expect Serena to win. I want her to get her "Serena Slam". That's more special than just winning a single GS event. Besides, there'll be other GS events for Venus to win, and I'm sure I'll be rooting for on some of those occasions. But for now, it's Serena's hour.

Venus and Serena are sitting on top of the WORLD

Venus
she was soo much more composed and together out there than Serena. Although I think that Serena will get her act together somewhat, she has GOT to be rattled by the match vs. Kim.

I just hope that Venus can clear her mind and forget the pain Serena had to go through to beat Kim. Venus was clearly suffering on the stands watching the match and that might affect her will to put up a good fight.

If Venus can play Serena like she would have played Kim, Venus will take it, but can she do that?? Can she really be indiferent to the fact that her little sister had to work much, much harder than her to get to the finals and really, really wants to win the title.
Can she really say: you know what, I don't give a damn! I'm taking it! I know she has said that to the media, but can she really say it to herself??
