Nobody!

but I'm sure you already know that. You should try reality sometime.

Although, I understand DENIAL can be a conforting blanket.

That's easy.

Venus is the most likely b/c she practices everyday with Serena and knows her game (although, Serena knows Venus' and that has put big sis at a disadvantage in their 5 previous meetings since Miami 2002).

Kim's got a good chance. But I have a feeling that the best she could do at this point of the year is to give the Williams a fiery challenge. Whether she'll repeat her success in LA last year depends on whether she can keep up with the power-hitting and atheleticism of the Williams duo.

Even though Justine did give Venus a couple of three setters last year (except Wimbledon), I don't think she'll beat the sisters or win a GS.

Jennifer's out of the question (at least for the year) and Davenport's closer to full recovery.

And don't count out Monica Seles (greatest champion). She's got the power to match the Williams duo (e.g: Aussie Open 2002) and she's got one very valuable asset...experience. Monica's played the sisters long enough and is the most experienced top 10 player...so she might be the one to dissolve the Williams juggernaught.

So you see? There are players out there who are capable and CAN halt Venus and Serena. It's just a matter of whether they can be bothered to brush up their praticing and correct their weaknesses.

You must be Drunk!

This makes no sense. Maybe you should do something better with YOUR time.

Lindsay loathes the French Open. It would bring her great joy to lose first round.

JUSTINE! come on she took Venus to many 3-sets last year and she beat Serena on clay last year (Serena also beat her, but still that was right before Serena went crazy and stopped letting anyone beat her...so give JuJu some credit!)

(1/20/17) Just discovered this gem in my private messages from 2006:
Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!!
**Everyone should consider themselves warned!**
