Bottom line Davenport is 2-9 versus the Sisters the past two years. She has lost the last 5 matches.

Hingis is 4-8 versus the sisters in just over 2 years. she has lost the last 5 meetings including all of their matchups this year.

I don't understand why people expect two players coming off injuries who have lost a combined 10 of their last meetings with the sisters to post a bigger challenge than healthy players who have beaten the sisters this year like Clijsters and Henin. Interestingly enough, of the healthy players Capriati is always touted as the biggest threat when she has lost the last 5 matches to Serena and has never beaten Venus.

People used to gripe that Venus and Serena didn't play enough matches. The sisters upped their schedule and are #1 and #2 in the World now people are unhappy.

Once upon a time people criticized the sisters for avoiding each other in tournaments and wished they would play the same tournaments more. Now they are playing the same tournaments and people can't stop talking about how awful it is.

Be careful what you wish for-- you just might get it.

Because The ONLY players can challange the Williams Sisters are : DAVENPORT, HINGIS, CAPRIATI, CLIJSTERS, HENIN or SELES so far....maybe DOKIC, HANTUCHOVA or MAURESMO in the future....for me WTA Tour right now is NO COMPETITION, I'm sure (100%) The Williams Sisters will win the rest (all) of WTA Tour easily without these TOP Players!

I don't dislike The Williams Sisters (congratulations for become #1 & #.2), I just wanting the WTA Tour is more excitement!

Posting in large words does not make your posts any more intelligent. Read the post above you.

I don't think V & S need to be 'ready' for Hingis and Davenport. I think Hingis and Davenport better be 'ready' for the sisters. ;)

Judging by their past records i dont think Venus or Serena have to be ready. But everyone else on the wta does! Davenport and Hingis have to be ready for the sisters!

Jul 6th, 2002, 08:30 AM
Ready? For what?

I don't see a reason for them to be ready. And BTW, I like a lot Dokic and Hantuchova, but right now they are no competition for Williams.

Katulampa has the right to wish for the return of Hingis and Davenport without being attacked on no grounds, except for wishing their return and choosing other styles than Times New Roman. Personally, I think it would be great when they come back, only because they been away for so long.

I presume that our dear topic starter has to apologize for his presumptious notion that Venus and Serena should be "ready" to compete against Hingis and Davenport :rolleyes:

Now, Katulampa, say SORRY! :D:wavey:

Jul 6th, 2002, 08:33 AM
I would name only Capriati and Henin, for real competition. And maybe Seles. Kim?????? She used to be. When she's back healthy THEN she'll be, but now she's not.

Jul 6th, 2002, 11:13 AM
Oh for gods sake. Lets just agree that all four of them better be ready for eachother.

Jul 6th, 2002, 11:37 AM
As has been mentioned, Venus and Serena would welcome back both Davenport and Hingis with open arms. ;)

Hurry back Lindsay and Martina!

Jul 6th, 2002, 11:48 AM
I hope Martina and Lindsay are fully back at the us open, it's just better when everybody is there and plays well!
