Yes I'd like to vote. Good thing I'm old enough. And yes Venus fans votes count more than non-fans.

When people post polls, the thread shows up before we finish writing the poll, so that's why it takes time...

That's a tough one, I voted for her winning 1 more slam, but never beating Rena again. Personally, I hate both choices!

Venus Williams
2007 Memphis Champion


Serena Williams
2007 Australian Open

I would vote for option 2 because:

option 1: ends with 5 slams, but is dominated easily by her main rival. Nobody would ever be able to claim that Venus is greater then Serena, she would simply be in her shadow forever.

option 2: ends with 4 slams, but is able to turn things around and dominates her main rival. So even though Serena would have more slams, people would still be able to say that Venus is as great as Serena because of how she took control again.

how about adding an option "c: sit on a red-hot poker in exchange for not having any more of these polls on the board" ?
