The future rivals to the WILLIAMS is not on the WTA tour, but in the juniors

VENUS and SERENA WILLIAMS have built up such a level of dominance, physical but mostly mental, over the current level of top tour players that the only viable hope of a consistent rival will have to be a 14-15 year old who is now playing in the juniors and has not developed the fear factor of the WILLIAMS sisters.

One after another, the top players are crashing and burning under the onslaught of the WILLIAMS' mental and physical level of play and the media pressure to be the next Great Willing Hope against the fantastic American sisters and become a new leader on the tour.

Several top ten players have withered under this pressure in time periods that ranged fro 6 to 18 months. Hingis, Davenport, Dementieva, Mouresmo, Lucic, Capriati, Dokic (though most problems have been a result of family issues) and now one wonders how long Clijsters can hold up now that the media has put a choker label on this outstanding athlete because she has yet to beat the WILLIAMS and win a major in the process.

The juniors that may come on the tour will have seen more play from the sisters, be the recepient of more detailed analysis of their games and hopefully, will not be so easily shell shocked by the media and Richards daughters games.

By the time these juniors are 17-18, that should be able to be consistently competitive with a 24 and 25 year old SERENA and VENUS.
These juniors will probably come from eastern European countries, unless there are more Belgiums hidden in that small country.

So we can possibly look forward to quite a bit of high level, non WILLIAMS tennis in 3 or 4 years it seems.

Painful to admit by the other players and their fans, but it is probably true. Serena has gone into Kim's head now and only time will tell how this loss will affect her. Also for a rusty Venus making a grand slam final without dropping a set just goes to show the Williamses dominance of the WTA.

Yep.....good to see Vee on the go.

Zenith - Not just the high level of the ability of the WILLIAMS, but the general mediocrity of the tour as well.

mcdonald - I would not really expect the neice of V & S to be nearly as dynamic as the aunts.

But, I have been wrong before.

Well Jelena has hired a coach because as she says so she realises she needs to improve he rgame before she'll have any chance to beat the Williamses.

Do you have any stronger response to my repeated notations of the fact that you are an idiot than "nyah nyah, your favourites lost"?

Or is that pretty much the limit of your intellectual range?

I haven't the time nor the inclination to be bothered with a sick little creature like you who has built his whole meaningless life around a person who would hate you if she ever met you.

Bye ass.

Are you sure that you aren't just taking out the things that you hate about yourself, on others, Tee Rexx?

No Ms. Frigid Biatch, I do not hate anyone, even you.
what I said was directed at the person to whom it was intended, even before you butted in the exchange.

Bye.
