Another BORING final

Granted the score was closer, but the outcome was still the same. Venus didn't play to her full potential and never does to little sis. I was hoping for a tighter match where both players fought for all they had.. The reason it went to three sets was because Serena made a lot of UE in the second set..

I am ready for someone else to play a Williams in the final because the intensity would be so much greater!

Anywho, congratulations to Serena.. She did work hard.

actually, this was the best match they've played for quite a while. and we all know that the two best players in the world made it to the final. anyone who disagrees is just plain stupid.

i wasnt happy w/ the outcome and i wished some of my favorites could have been there, but this was still a good one - i got nervous for venus and i was stunned at a lot of the shots.

why start another one of these ridiculous threads

I think we can see that the sister is starting growing to become very competitive into their matches, maybe we are gonna see many classic matches yet to come

A great sign for Vee, althought she lost, (which I am a bit sad about) at least she can say she make it closer than any of the last tiem

Well i think Kim came closer to Serena than Venus and maybe is the second best player right now.

Serena played a whole lot better against venus from the very first point than against kim.

Ok i realise i didn't explain that too well but i think right now Kim is playing better than or at least equal to Venus. I really wanted Venus to win today but her second serve was absolutely awful, she only got to 6-4 final set because somehow Serena made so many unforced errors on second serve returns.

From what i have seen so far it was Ok I'm at 4-4 in first set i did see the last 4 games live and both were very nervous at that point.Venus looked physically scared toawrds the end.

I think a williams against another player would make a great final but williams Vs williams is just below par

Well, I admit the first round of the tournament was REALLY exciting. But you know, the first round of a GS on Rebound Ace is all about getting the pretenders out of there. Once you're down to the 64 players who can actually PLAY, you start seeing some things.

Well, that's not fair, you do get your odd Loit or two, but you notice she lost. The really good players win the surprise first round tilts. At least now that we have 32 seeds. Used to be possible for a seeded player to get a top 20 opponent in the first round. Not so much of an upset. But for a top ten player to lose in the first round now, they have to be horrendous. I mean, they're losing to player ranked #35 and worse!

Though still more interesting to watch than the two best players in the world of course.

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.

notice when serena stopped making errors in her third set semifinal, who won?

serena is the number one player.
venus is the number two player.

i see no changes until venus gets her act together or kim gets a backbone.

that match was anything but boring. My heart is broken for Venus because I could see she was burning with desire and I wanted her to win SO badly, but she had some lapses and Serena took advantage. Plain and simple. Venus had chances and the scoreline should have been Venus d Serena 6-4 6-3. Maybe in that alternative universe that Xman was explaining to me. But, Vee will just have to work on that serve and get her at the French Open.

this was DEFINITELY the best match between the sisters, both in terms of content and thrills....especially considering what was at stake. i had the whole thing on tape and still watched it in "real" time...no way was it boring....
