Question Will Venus get the record for...

... most runner-up trophies by the time she's finished?

Right now, she has 6 (5 in the last 2 years). The record is held by Evert with 16. So Venus needs at least 10 more.

If Serena keeps beating her in these finals, you never know...

10 is a lot. With so many young players getting better and better, it will be difficult for Venus to consistently make 3 Slam Finals a year. On top of that, once she gets to the Final, she only extends that record if she loses.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

I don't recall how many Martina has. Is that also 8?

Realize that Evert has that record because Navratilova was beating her just like Serena is beating Venus...At least they both were making the finals...

Beating Martina and Serena at their best is not easy to do. I think if Venus is healthy she can win more and not so many finals losses...But nobody else is beating Serena consistently either so I don't think it is fair to single her out...
