I agree..Because lately when venus plays serena,venus's game looks timid and she doesn't go for her shot.

It is my dream match to see both Serena and Venus playing their best against each other. So far it hasn't happened, and I begin to wonder if it will ever happen. If I had to guess, I would go with Venus.

I think venus at her best , would destroy serena at her best. venus can retrun serena's first serve like its nothing , while serena only has an adantage on Venus' second serve. Serena has the forehand advantage. Venus has the backhand advantage and net advantage. All venus has to do is go backhand down the line, forehand down the line, backhand down the line and then keep doing that til serena misses, or she could wrong foother a few times . i think Venus is on to something. watch that match carefully, when Venus was in deep deep trouble seh use a few plays that she knew would work for her. she definately knows what it takes to beat serena. She at some points mades Serena look helpless, she needs to do more of that

Venus gets my vote. All the serious analysts (not those three crackpots from ESPN) say that since Venus is faster and stronger, she has the advantage because she's not quite at her full potential. Imagine if she used that incredible reach, blanketed the net, used that killer backhand, tightened up that forehand and smoothed out her serve. OMG, who could beat her?

I have to say in the venus vs serena matches we haven't seen the real venus...She seems to go away...Venus misses to many first serves and has a lot of miss hits.

Serena would beat Venus at her best.

She has a lethal forehand and backhand if they're on.
Also a powerful serve.
Serena's fast and would return all Venus' balls back.

I think Serena would win.


serena
townsend × rezaï × lisicki × vesnina × aiava
keys × mladenovic × osaka × broady × jankovic

Ya'll can all speculate on the what if's...But guess what guys. Who has won the last 4 grand slam finals.

It is so funny to see the W fans split down the middle. I think everyone's true colors are coming out

Serena fans: Now you see how us Jenn fans felt after Jenn beat her in 2001?

SERENA ROCKS!!!!

How can there be no question?? We have never seen them both at their best.

Serena has been closer to her best than Venus, and she only holds a 5-4 record over her.

Hmmm...

No actually her record against Venus is 5-0 at her best ..she was 0-4 before she really became the Serena we know today.
