Williams domination? or Serena domination?

Well, it's obvious that both Williams sisters are clearly no.1 and no.2 and above the rest. However should we talk about Williams domination? It seems to me that it's more of a Serena domination. It's more something like

1. Serena
...big gap...
2. Venus
...big gap...
3-10

Venus has lost the last 5 times to Serena, including the last 4 grandslam finals. That to me shows that Venus isn't part of the domination, she's won 0 tier 1s and 0 grandslams in the last year or more. So should we refer to it as Williams domination or Serena domination?

Well, I agree that Venus is clearly the 2nd best and above the rest. But I still think that it should be called the Serena domination since she's way above everyone else including Venus. But anyways it's just some stupid technical thing, it doesn't really matter at the end of the day.

If it was not Williams domination, you would have seen somebody else in the other side of the net. Be Smart ! Think for yourself !

Well I don't see Venus dominating. It's Serena who's dominating. Otherwise we can say that Clijsters is also dominating because she's way above the rest of the top 10 right now. Why stop at 2 and not at 3 for example....

There was a period after the stabbing when for example Steffi and Aranxta were no.1 and no.2. However it was Steffi who was winning everything and Aranxta was only the finalist. Did we say it was an Steffi/Aranxta domination? it was more of a Steffi domination.

DUH---Who else has been playing GS finals? Venus and Serena are both dominating women's tennis. The AO final proved that they are both very dominating. A few miscue's by Venus cost her the match...it could have gone either way. Venus just tensed up.
Compared to the rest of the field, both Venus and Serena are playing at a different level.

I did. I agree with the majority of tennis experts....both Venus and Serena will be dominating women's tennis for a long time. Both Venus and Serena play the same type of dominating tennis. They are equally dominating.

Just Looking at who your Favorite Players are just tells me Selesrules is in a losing era !
Venus And my Ming The Merciless One " are head and shoulders over the rest ! I knew serena was going to win the 'damn thing"
base on her play of last year as i predicted Serena's Domination will pay a heavy toll once Venus beats her in a off Tournament Like Miami or someplace else ! once Venus Taste Victory again from Serena she will go on a tear ! and it will be Serena who will have to catch up

But Serena is head and shoulders over Venus too. That's my point. How can someone who is dominated like this be part of the "domination". It's a Serena domination, Venus just happens to be the victim just like the rest of the tour.

Selesrules shows his/her nerdy stupidity again...

If you're in Venus' half of the draw Venus kicks your ass.

If you're in Serena's half of the draw Serena kicks your ass.

That is the definition of Williams Domination.

The fact that Chris won fewer Slams in the end didn't change the fact that Chris and Navrat dominated their era.

Don't know if you knew this but even Chris and Navrat didn't meet in four grand slam finals in a row!!!

I'm sure this is all lost on "some people".

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

I was there when the ALL BLACKS won the World Cup in 2011!!!

There can never be too many "Sister Slams!"

selesrules - Youwrote it yourself
Code:
1. Serena
...big gap...
2. Venus
...big gap...
3-10
It's BOTH Williams domination and Serena domination. But history will record the last twelve months as Serena's time. (Not yet finished, either)

Selesrules,

If it makes you feel better, call it Serena Domination. There... don't you feel better now?

I think selesrules has a point ....and the Steffi-Arantxa example is a great argument. I think it's a Serena domination right now....It's she who's dominating tennis...not Venus...Serena is capable of winning from everyone...Venus is not...she didn't beat her sister in their last, what was it, 5? matches. So clearly...it is Serena on top dominating EVERYONE...you can't deny that

btw...I'm looking at this totally objectively...I'm not a fan of a Williams sister, but I kinda like Venus and I really can't stand Serena, so if there has to be a Williams' domination, I rather had it the other way around...but I'm just looking at it like it is

That been said...and I hope I can say this without getting loads of nasty comments coming back at me ...I think/hope Kim is closing the gap a little bit...she ain't at Venus' level yet, I know that, but she showed us this week she can come near to a Williams in a Slam What do you guys think?
