It's Only Just Begun

The Belgians just started to make a dent into the Tennis world with their performance at this year's season. With 4 Grand Slams, 17 titles, and the #1 and #2 Rankings the Belgians will just be more motivated to prove to the world next year that they are for real. To those who are already predicting their demise, wake up and start eating some waffles.

It already started when the incoming number one couldn't even get to the final of the YEC.

I have never given up and it's important for me to prove to myself that I can do this, and to prove to me that i'm a champion.
If I were just to sit down, lay down and give in, then I wouldn't have any respect for myself."

If you are referring to Serena, she won it because Lindsay couldn't play and I think we all know why that happened. Yes, she was the winner; she got the check and the trophy.

Try again.

Tecnically, yes, because Venus played five games before retiring, but even Kim acknowledges that it really wasn't a win for her because the match wasn't completed.

But one thing people are forgetting. Serena OWNS Lindsay, so she wouldn´t have been without a chance I say.

But Venus vs Kim?! 3/4-1 h2h at the time, including their last meeting?!

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Someone will starte eating some waffles alright, and it will be Venus and Serena eating Juju and Kim for breakfast everytime they meet.

I´m not worried....Serena and Venus have been in this position before and we all know what happened.

The Belgians may have improved but they will NEVER EVER dominate the Williamses! NO ONE has dominated the Williamses and the Belgians won´t be the firsts to do it.

Always bet on black!

I'm glad you are finduing out what the Williams fans have had to go through since the summer of 2000 when Venus started dominating the tour and then in 2002 when she and Serena started the double domination.

This is not a hit to anyone. That was not the point of the thread. I just think that perhaps we should give the Belgians more credit than they have been getting. There are a few threads out there already stating the the demise of the Belgians. I mean come on now...
