In been ages since "the big four" have all made it to the semi-finals of an event, not to mention a Slam, but that's what so many of us fans can't wait to see. So in anticipation of the big four finally playing, let's assume that they all make it through!

To participate in this thread that's the only condition, you've got to have "the Big Four" ALL make it to the semi-finals....Justine, Serena, Kim, and Venus. Mention who they "beat" to get there, and then give a description of how you would like to see both the semi-finals and the final all play out.

In my dream semi-finals and final:

Semi-Final #1- Kim vs. Venus. In the last round Kim defeated Monica Seles 7-6,6-7,7-5. Monica really took it to her and nearly beat her, but in the end Kim was just a little to quick and powerful. It was one of the best QFs in a long time. Next, she'll be taking on Venus who defeated Jennifer Capritatti 4-6,6-4,6-4 in a two hour match where both players hit more winners than errors.

Outcome: Kim defeats Venus 7-6,6-2,6-3. Venus played really well and was in the best of shape, she just didn't have answers for Kim's that day... Kim played the match of her life......WINNER=KIM

Semi-Final#2- Serena vs Justine. In the last round Serena took out Mauresmo 6-3-6-1. Mauresmo put up a good fight but she was completly overwhelmed by a determined Serena Williams. Serena will take on Justine who beat Lindsay 6-1,3-6,9-7. Lindsay had match points but she was too distracted by her upset stomach to pull it out in the end, nice effort nonetheless.

Outcome: Serena defeats Justine 6-2,4-6,7-5. At one point Justine was up 5-0 in the third but that's when Serena kicked into high gear and went on a complete tear winning the next 7 games... :eek: ....Winner=SERENA

Final: Serena defeats Kim 6-4,6-7,8-6. This was by far Kim's best showing in a final and she played an absolutely brilliant match. In the end, it just wasn't good enough as Serena had a reply for all of Kim's great shots with greater shots of her own..

FRENCH OPEN CHAMP- SERENA...

ok, your turn....

Venus def. Jennifer 6-7 6-4 6-2

Hey, you didn't play by my out-lined rules... :fiery: :wavey: I said that the "big four" SERENA, JUSTINE, KIM, and VENUS ALL HAVE TO MAKE IT TO THE SEMIS....

As for your final, if that did happen that would give Venus boat loads of confidence, which she would need cuz Serena will be out for blood and revenge at Wimby, you remember what happened to MoMo at the French last year.... :angel:

Sigh. If Serena and Kim HAVE to get to the semis... let's have Justine beating Serena 7-6 6-0, and Venus double bagelling Kim; the less time I have to spend watching either of them, the better.

I like Venus and Justine about the same, and they both need to win RG for different reasons... Justine so she can prove that she can win a Slam beating the Williams sisters, and Venus so she can prove she can win a Slam full stop again. So, er, I really wouldn't know who to cheer for... but I'd like them to go three sets, hug at the end, and spend their entire speeches complimenting each other. That would really throw the board into a state of shock.

Really, I think it'd be tremendous fun if all four lost before the fourth round.

SF2: Serena d. Justine 6-4, 6-7, 7-5 :o
Final: Kim d. Serena 7-5, 2-6, 6-4 :)

Please not another all-Belgian or all-Williams final! But on the other hand I really like these 4 players to enter the semi finals. So one of the Belgians has to lose just for that particular reason. ;)
And it is really time for Kim to win her first grand slam. Let's hope she does it at the French Open! :D

I don't want to be a bore
but I can't go with that big four
I don't want them to score
it should be against the law
remove them from the draw
show those brats the door
the're rotten to the core
their success I would abhor
can't take it any more
it fair sticks in My craw
they stick around like a cold sore
like seagulls to the shore
like a lobster to its claw
its really the last straw
enough to slacken off Your jaw
could drive Me to visit a whore
all because I want a certain Russian to go to the fore
Oh well, time for My apointment now,look forward to lying on the couch

Kim loses from Serena 5-7 3-6 after Kim beat Vera in a real close match, while Serena (unfortunately) cruised past Amélie

Venus loses from Justine 3-6 6-2 5-7 after Venus struggled against Farina Elia in 3 sets while Justine looked like losing against Vera but overcame exhaustion yet again.

Serena loses to Justine 6-2 6-6 (5-7) 8-10 in a bitch-fight with both players making some ugly errors and few great points in the first two sets cause the tension is too high. In the third set they fly free and it was anyone's taking, but Serena had given a 4-0 lead away in second set and lacks the ultimate spirit 'cause she feels she should have won it. Justine is near death of exhaustion and has to lean on Serena through the Trophy presentation...

I don't like the way to the goal in my dreams, too damn close. Reality will suck.

SF1: Venus def. Justine, 6-1, 4-6, 6-4. After dispatching Petrova and Zvonareva in the QF and R16 and scraping past Loit 8-6 in the 3rd in Round 3, Venus beats Justine after a second set wobble. Justine had beaten Myskina but no other high ranked players.


SF2: Kim def. Serena, 7-6, 7-5. Kim shows a now rare show of mental strength, with both firing winners from all areas of the court, and much action at the net. No questionable hands are used, the crowd are not complete assholes, and Serena regains her respect of the crowd, maybe forgiving them a tiny bit for last year, as they cheered her still, even after she beat Amelie in the QF's and Conchita in the R16. Kim saw off Lindsay in the QF's in 3 very very close sets, on a day where Lindsay's mental strength was great until the last second.

F: Kim def. Venus, 2-6, 7-6, 6-3. Kim finally gets a Grand Slam, taking the title away from her belgian counterpart. Venus takes advantage of a nervous start from Kim, and Kim saves match points in the second set tiebreak. The final set takes well over an hour, and after Kim breaks to lead 5-3 and serve for the match, she finishes it off after a 10 minute final game.

It's interesting that most of us don't want complete blow-outs in the semis and finals most people seem to want good long matches, you guyz are putting scores like 13-15 in the tie break, 14-12 third set, 2:55 hrs...I LOVE IT, but you know that the matches that build and have all this anticipation rarely live up to all the hype, I hope we get some instant classics this year!

Apr 26th, 2004, 06:36 PM
Some people just don't read the starting post careful...and some 'other choices' are just non-sense really.....just like if Justine was outside top 50, I wouldn't even pick her in the quarters, never mind semis.

My choices:

Semis:
Justine def Serena: 7-5 4-6 6-4
Venus def Kim: 6-4 6-3

Final:
Justine def Venus: 7-6 (7-5) 4-6 9-7

Ok I would entertain this Thread...it's fun, and I have the time.

Semi Final 1: Lindsay Davenport vs. Monica Seles
Lindsay Davenport Coming off a Win defeating Jennifer Capriati in a Marathon Big Babe Tennis battle defeating Jennifer 6-4, 2-6, 8-6. Monica Seles playing the Match of her life (beat the SHIT out of Justine Henin) 7-6, 6-2 in the tournaments shocker.

Justin creates controversy in the second set by collasping on the court during Monica's second serve @ 4-1 on a break point. Monica hit the serve long....... The Umpire did not see Justine "allegedly"Faint, However, noticed her on the ground. As the serve was called out, Monica approached the net (thinking there would be a replay) but as the SECOND SERVE went long the Ump yelled Game Henin.

Laying on the ground Justine jumps up and scream "ALLEZ" and as if she just Slips and not "allegedly" fainted as the replay clearly shows the action as a faint and not a fall. Monica is FURIOUS:fiery: ! Screaming...the crowd goes wild and Jeering Justine and yelling out....CHEATER, CHEATER. Justine approaches the chair and states she just "SLIPPED" trying to get her footing to return the serve. The call was not reversed. Monica goes back to return Justine's serve at 2-4. Monica Slaps 4 winners off all of Justines 1st serve breaking her at love and sending the crowd to a Frenzy and them chanting..MONICA! MONICA! MONICA! Monica rides the momentum to a 7-6, 6-2 Win!:bounce:

Back to the semi's....with the crowd support Monica defeats Davenport 6-4, 3-6, 6-4!

SEMIFINAL 2: Venus vs. Serena
Venus Williams is the hottest player on clay dispatching Dementieva in the 16's, Zvonereva in the QF and now she has Serena. Serena Defeats Clijsters in the Quarters easily 6-1, 6-4. Venus defeats Serena in a classic match up 2-6, 7-6, 7-5.

FINALS: Venus Williams vs. Monica Seles
Deemed the best Match in FO History. The stubborn Seles takes the first set 6-4 and the resurgent Venus easily takes the second set 6-3, the final set last 1hr 45mins as Venus wins the 16-14 3rd set on a drop shot that had Monica racing to the net diving for the ball unsuccessfully. Venus drops to her knees in tears...looks up and see's Monica still on the ground in tears....Venus Runs to Monica's side of the net..Help her up and they Embrace tightly, saying to each other, "You're the greatest...No, You're the Greatest!" The Grab Hands and lift them together to the crowd...The audience is Screaming and Clapping and Crying, Serena breaksdown in the stands overcome with Joy for her sister...and Richard walks out on court Hugs Venus and then Hugs Monica tightly, the crowd erupts again.

The greatest match in Women Tennis EVER!
VENUS WILLIAM DEF. MONICA SELES 4-6,6-3,16-14



p.s. hingis was in the stands pissed...and yelled out "they're both BITCHES! That shoulda been me out there. I am THE FUCKING MARTINA HINGIS!":fiery: :)

Sorry Stefwhit but if it's my dream, I set the rules!

Winner: Monica Seles to claim her 10th Grand Slam title and gain some recompense for all the pain injury and bereavement she's suffered.
Finalist: Justine Hénin - because I want Monica to beat the #1 player in the final.

Semi-finalists: Jennifer Capriati and Serena Williams
Quarter finalists: Mauresmo, Kuznetsova, Martinez and Rubin.

...but it's no big deal, I still enjoy reading everyone's picks whether they played along like I asked or not- some choices sound like they'd make for some really good finals....it's all good... :wavey:

SF2 - Serena Williams d. Kim Clijsters 6-4 1-6 6-3

Finals - Justine Henin-Hardenne d. Serena Williams 6-0 1-6 22-20
becoming the longest ever women's match of all time!

YAY!!!!!!
That Venus-Justine tiebreak scenario looks awfully familiar. Venus is Borg and Justine is McEnroe, right? ;)

Okay, if I have to assume these 4 make it....

Kim d. Venus 6-4, 6-2
Finally, the big match win Kim needs....

Serena d. Justine 6-7, 6-4, 8-6
Serena, the glare going, fights her back from a 2- break deficit in the final set.

FINALS
Kim d. Serena 6-2, 5-7, 6-1
A rested Clijsters over comes her nerves and a tired Serena after serving for the match up 5-4 30-love in the second set.

My Dream Semi-Final and Final doesn't feature the big four (sorry)

It goes like this:

Semi-final #1: Serena Williams (3) vs. Lindsay Davenport (6)
-After a rock solid Lindsay Davenport takes out a fatigued Justine Henin-Hardenne in three tough sets (2-6 7-6 10-8), she will be no match for Serena who just creamed Vera Zvonareva (6-1 6-2). Serena should roll, but Lindsay may put up some resistance.

Winner: Serena 6-3 6-2

Semi-Final #2 Venus Williams (4) vs. Amelie Mauresmo (5)
-Both Venus and Amelie had fairly easy quarterfinal wins, Venus over Kim (7-6 (13) 6-2) and Amelie over Petrova (6-3 7-5), but Venus will be too solid and will look for two in a row against Mauresmo (she'll beat her in Warsaw), but Amelie does not want to lose two in a row against anyone. This match will be a test of wills, but in the end, Venus will prevail with amazing pin-point forehands, serves, and volleys.

Winner: Venus 6-3 5-7 6-2

Final: (3) Serena Williams vs. (4) Venus Williams
-The last Grand Slam final that Venus and Serena played will be really similar to this one, except for the fact that Venus won't be injured, so Serena will have to work hard to win this one. Expect to see an array of great shots, lots of good serves, and unfortunately, lots of unforced errors. Serena will pull it out in three tough sets. But then again, Venus is stepping it up so..........who knows?

French Open Champion:

Serena 4-6 7-6 (10) 9-7
or
Venus 6-4 6-7 (10) 9-7

Sorry Stefwhit but you have an altered perception of what the "big four" are. The Williams sisters would not be there. there not even in the top four and they are not great on clay,
