Glad that Venus and Serena are in the same half this time around

Aside from Wimbledon where they are clearly the best I've realized that it's best for the WS and for tennis in general to be in opposite halves in GS. And even the Wimbledon final left me with a bittersweet outcome. If they both can make it to the semis I'm looking forward to a great match, and the winner will be all pumped up for the title.

Re: Glad that Venus and Serena are in the same half this time around

The wta was not gonna put them on opposite sides so they can leave with all of the money like they've done the past 4 years at Wimbledon.

the russians and serbs were hyped up by Carillo, Shriver, and MFJ and now they can't deliver.

Maria was put in that top half so a sister would eliminate her no-serving, slow butt during the first week.

With Dinara they don't want Venus or Serena to embarass her and expose her fake ranking anymore.

Jelena and Ana are jokes in themselves.

It's funny how the wta will give maria these easy draws to ensure she makes it to the second round, but it's always a lower ranked player to knock her out the first week.

I'm glad to see Kimmy back, but she won't beat a Williams during this tournament. Kimmy should have been in that top half of the draw instead of Dinara, Maria, Jelena, and Ana. They've been given enough easy draws in grand slams.

I can't wait til Justine comes back because the tournament needs her too.

Wimbledon and the US Open are not WTA tournaments They have nothing to do with the draw

Re: Glad that Venus and Serena are in the same half this time around

Darn! I wanted all the money to go to the Williams family in the final! HAHA! ONE BIG CHECK! I guess the committee wasn't going to allow this to happen, hahaha.

Serena - 22 Grand Slam Titles -- 71 Singles Titles -- World Rank: #1 | 2016 Record - (31-4) 89%
Venus - 7 Grand Slam Titles -- 49 Singles Titles -- World Rank: #6 | 2016 Record - (21-9) 70%

Re: Glad that Venus and Serena are in the same half this time around

Normally I don't care but for some reason, I reallly wanted them to be on opposite sides this time around. Anyway as long as Serena wins their possible match-up it's whatever.

Behind you one million percent Vicky D! You will prevail In Jesus Name. Amen.

Re: Glad that Venus and Serena are in the same half this time around

I prefer for them to be on the same half, too. It makes rooting for someone in the final a lot easier.

True, but the tournament directors for the US Open do not want the Williams sisters walking away with all of the money.

This top draw was designed to ensure that Maria makes it to the second round because she's ranked low and a Williams would knock her out before the second week.

Venus beat Dinara and Elena so badly that they don't want them to face Venus.

Dinara can't beat Serena on her best day, and they believe Elena would have a better chance because she normally gives Serena trouble.

Jelena is just an over worked horse with a bad serve and no energy to do any damage. And Ana was just over hyped and can't deliver.

Kutzy has a great game but we never know which one is gonna show up.

And I do understand that it may be easier to have the sisters play in the semi's than the finals so there will be a clear distinct one to route for, but the tournament directors don't want Venus and Serena mowing down the draw like they normally do when they are on opposite sides.

Me too as I prefer Vee's chances of beating Serena in a slam semi rather than a final
