Justine vs Venus at YEC

Currently, in this WTA World fan poll Justine and Venus are the 1st and 2nd faves to winthe title. This leads to an obvious and interesting question, given their head to head.

If Venus plays Justine at the YEC, who will win?

BTW, objectively, Justine is player of the year.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Hmm....I think Venus is a tough opponent for Justine on hardcourts.....in that her backhand is equally solid, she has more power on the forehand side....and she knows how to jam Justines own backhand.

Besides breaking Venus is a WHOLE different thing than breaking Kim at will..

Plus if Venus decides to go to the net, she will toast Justine imo.

Always bet on black!

um this is hard. see it depends, i think, at how Venus will play in Philadelphia. I think if Venus wins Philadelphia, she CAN win the YEC. I think that Justine is very motivated to end the year an no. 1 and end her Venus drought.

What?! It aint all in Justines hand?! I thought the tour improved and the Williamses stood still?! Look and behold.....a match between the no.6 and no.1 player in the world, depends on how the no.6( who hasnt played in nearly 4 months!) performs??!!

Always bet on black!

Listen you fool, just because I support Justine doesn't mean I completely refuse to accept certain situations. I know that Venus is completely capable of defeating Justine, but it's been a very looong while since it's happened. You act like people here are blind. I support Justine to win that match but I know it's not a guarantee. I think it's people like you who refuse to understand that there are no guarantees in life and refuse to accept the fact that the sisters can be beaten

Fool?! It aint even THAT long ago that Venus has beaten Justine...uuhmm, Oz open this year e.g....I think what you meant to say was that it was a long time ago that JUSTINE has beaten Venus.....but it is easy to get tangled up in your words..

But this is a good way to brace yourself...

I don't think Venus will play..I don't think she should even consider playing the rest of the year. She should train for 2004 and start from there. 2004 is your year Venus, work it. :yippie:

No, but if you followed the link inthe first post inthis thread, you see that this thread is a 'spin-off' of another thread. That thread was a poll. Venus and Justine are leading in that poll. Had Kim been one of the top two inthat poll, I'd be asking about her. She's not, so I'm not.

If Venus does'nt lead that poll, I wonder if you do the same thread with Justine vs Kim or Justine vs Capriati!!!!
