If you were a tournament director?

Would you rather have Venus and Serena take ea. other out of your tournament, have them knock off other high ranked players in the early rounds, or have them in opposite sides of the draw?

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

opposites

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Alternate. Opposites one, together the next, etc.

They will, on both occasions, take out big names on the way, anyway.

As a tournament director- it would be crazy not to want both of them in the draw. As a fan of tennis, I would opt for both of them pulling out, because I never like watching them play each other- it's rarely good tennis, and it's kind of ugly to watch sisters play each other.

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

Then you must also root for the Belgians not to meet in slam finals as both have been rather ugly.
