View Full Version : Richard is always right: Serena is better than Venus

All his predictions have come true. He predicted both would be 1 and 2 in the world. He also said Serena would eventually be better than Venus and he's absolutely right. Serena has gotten over the nerves of playing Venus and now is just rolling. I've never seen Venus being overpowered until today.

This thought has been going through my mind all year long and especially during the Sisters matches this year.

Venus still has one more grand slam title. And the Olympic gold, too.

Yeah, I think Serena is slightly better. She is more inconsistent on her serve. She has better angles on her groundies (but I've noticed Venus using more and more angles on her groundies this year, just not as well as Rena). That angled forehand was blazing today for Rena. I think Vee needs to totally revamp her forehand and make slight changes to her serve.

Venus was definately overpowered. She scrambled to return most of Serena's shots. She was almost always on the defensive.

Serena is obviously a great player and so is Venus. One match does not a career make. Venus will come back. I don't think Serena is "better" than Venus, nor do I think the opposite. All one can really say with any certainty is this: They will both have outstanding careers and be dominant players in the WTA until they retire (barring serious injury).
