It's almost certain that Venus & Serena will play. Venus has to beat Castano...which she should do easily... and Serena has to beat Likhovtseva ...which should be a tougher match but she should easily advance.

Who do you think will win their QF match and what score?

I hope and think Venus will win in a tight 3 setter, maybe 7/6 in the 3rd :D

I hope and think Venus will win in a tight 3 setter, maybe 7/6 in the 3rd :DI'm just happy that they'll finally face each other again. If Serena wins, I'll be happy. If Venus wins, I'll be happy. Not many here have it as good as me. :lol:

You never know - one of them could be forced to retire, one might lose, etc. Too many variables to say just yet. ;)

How long has it been since they have played one another?

How long since they've played one another in a tournament other than a slam?

This is where it all began of rserena, she stopped Venus going for title no.4 and broke the hoodoo over her. It has been 4 long years for venus, this is where it all begins again for venus. she stops serena from going for title no.4 and breaks that hooodoo over her. Venus is gonna beat serena sometime and this time it will be this week.

Honestly, I'd rather Venus beat Serena here than in a slam. It'll give Venus some confidence without taking too much from Serena. I'm sure Serena wants this title bad, but probably not half as much as a slam title.

I know one thing - Venus is one player Serena will never underestimate. She will be ready, she plays Venus harder than anyone else.

Venus is playing better right now. But that's meant nothing in the past. She was playing better in previous events and Serena still won (French 02, Aussie 03, Wimby 03)...so Idunno. I hope it's a great match! As long as good tennis, I'll be happy. As long it's not ugly like 02 French, 02 US, 02 Miami...I'm a happy camper :p

*slowly exhales*
When will people learn that you can't judge Venus and Serena based upon how they play their opponents?
*sigh*
For as long as I've been following them, they've always played each other different than they play the typical WTA player. I suppose it has to do with them knowing the others strengths and weaknesses; what works and what doesn't. However, I do expect more of a net game from one this time around. Which one, is the question.
Anyway, good luck to both. :cool:

I hope Venus, I really hope so. It would do wonders for her confidence. Nothing would make me happier than to see the big four return with Maria in there as well.

Its going to be real interesting to see if they meet who can come out with a win. I think that it has been so long since they've played each other and will feel really wierd. I really can't predict but I would like to think that Serena might win this one.

Obviously Venus will win. The last six matches were aberrations. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Honestly, I don't care. What I want to see is finally, the ultimate battle between the sisters, a barn-burning 3-setter going the distance with match points saved and gained and erased again. I don't think it'll ever happen in a Slam, but maybe in a lower-level tournament where the stakes are lower.

Based on form, I'd say Venus, but then I remember Wimbly '03 and think it'll be Serena taking that one just based on guts and determination.

I think Serena crushes her in 2 sets. She is playing at a level way better than Venus.

If they play I think serena will win. But it's more than likely one of them will get injured and pull out before they get to play eachother.

well it seems wrong to be discussing this when they haven't even stepped on court to play their 4th round matches yet :o :retard: but looking ahead to this likely match-up, lets just say I'll be shocked if Venus loses this encounter.

This is a turn-around match for Venus.

If she can win this match then i can see her dominate (at least be one of the dominant forces) tennis again and win a couple of slams!

Remember, her loses to Serena has really shaken her confidence and aggravates to injuries.

I hope Venus wins!

yep I pretty much agree. I think this is the key match for Venus - win it and then she will go on to win Miami, rediscover the Venus Williams of 2000/2001 and win at least both Wimbledon and the Us Open this year. Lose against Serena - then well back to square one. It all sounds fairly simple but really I think Venus would banish all those demons for real and regain her full confidence if she could beat lil sis here. Hope I get to see this match live on tv tomorrow

Serena 6-2 6-1. Venus is the better player but for some reason i don't think that she realize that. I rather see Venus.

I really would love to see Serena win this one mainly because I would love for her to play Justine in the semi-finals as long as both can get there.
