Next Williams/Williams Match: Miami?

Will any other player [s] be able to stop a Williams/Williams final in Miami?

The next event that both will play together is Miami, barring injury.

And, will Venus come out on top?

Miami is where it began...s0o who knows? It could be where it ends. (regarding whether Venus will win!)

I have mixed emotions!!!

One key to their matches is when they are pinned in the forehand corner and have to reply to a hard shot. Serena will hit a running forehand crosscourt offensively and sometimes Venus will loop it down the line or net a forehand crosscourt. She *must* develop an anwer to this. Serena goes to this play like money in the bank. Venus must have a better reply when she is pinned in her forehand corner. But I do expect one of them to lose before one of these finals. I don't think Venus and Serena will both get to all finals of: Paris, Miami, London and NYC. It is just too much to ask.

Nasdaq is where it began last year and Nasdaq is where it should end.

Venus needs to play her natural aggressive game against Serena and hopefully without the added pressure of a grandslam title, she will succeed in reversing the tide.

when you consider that with no forehand and an inconsistent first serve, Venus took Serena to three sets then i expect more off Venus by march, if she is still motivated to improve.

BTW, Anton, Venus' forehand deserted her that is why she started playing it a bit safe. it just another area that needs practise or perhaps revamping.
but as she implied in her interview now that it has contributed to costing her the AO, hopefully she will work on it.
