Serena in fact cleared the path for others and remarked how flawed Venus tecnique is on her forehand, and many others followed.
I guess you refer to the defeats of Hingis at Wimbledon and Us Open in 2000. I'd say the Venus of 2000 is not yet Peak Venus, even though she picked up her first two slams this year. No, the BEAST peak Venus came to life at US hardcourts in 2001-2002. Truly an unstoppable force. Ask Clijsters, Davenport, Seles, Capriati, who all had the honor of receiving one or more straight set defeats by BEAST peak Venus in this time.

Don't hate the player hate the game. I dislike noone. Not even Sharapova.
