View Full Version : Venus has only one more chance this year to tie Marti in Slams...

Jul 15th, 2002, 12:37 AM
...and I don't think she's going to do it because Serena is the overwhelming favourite to win the US Open. Poor Venus must be frustrated cos her sister has loads of confidence and will most likely beat Venus again. :)

And the point of this thread is ?

That Venus still will have 4 Slams to Marti's 5! :bounce:

and also Martina got hers in a 3 year span, 1997, 98, 99.

2000, 2001, 2002. If Venus gets the US Open, they both got 5 in 3 years.

Nice and tidy.

Seven Grand Slam Singles in the Williams Family (3 Wimbledons, 3 US Opens and 1 French Open). Its ALL GOOD!

somehow i doubt she's worried

I doubt Venus even knows this, let alone cares.

Rocksteady you and cybelldarkholmexx sound alike but I find that with loads of other Willi's fans. :kiss: :rolleyes: ;) :D :angel:

Toineefa - I remember not so long ago people writing that Venus and Serena TOGETHER would never have as many GS titles as Martina. Funny how life works out.

My guess is, Martina is worrying about her ankle, and Venus is resting her shoulder, and both of them are thinking more about Serena's game than each other's.

Heh, must be a sign of the apocalypse?

Jul 15th, 2002, 03:55 AM
Volcana but as individuals Marti still has more. :D And the Willi's have never even made it to the Australian Open final. :p

Pfft@cyhelldarkholmexx :rolleyes:

Toineefa, look, I understand that you are a huge Hingis fan and don't like the Williams sisters. I am in the same boat as you (lol at calling me a Williams fan). BUT you are opening up a can of trouble with this topic, and lots of people are going to come in and bash the Swiss Miss. Then I will feel obligated to defend her, getting myself in trouble by the other posters and by the mods, wasting my time. The last thing I want to do at this time of night is have ANOTHER argument with a Venus fan (I've already had too many today) so please, quietly let this thread sink to the bottom of the forums.

:) Thankyou

Toineefa - Is any of that actually important to you? It's true they are the same age, but it's not like Martina and Venus are rivals or anything. Once upon a time sure, but nowadays, the Belgians are the threat to Venus, and the only 'rival' is Serena. Martina's still a good player, but she lost Indian Wells to Hantuchova?!?! Dani's nice, but she's a year away, as her results since Indian Wells have shown.

Whatever. Just keep posting under this name when Martina gets back.

HUH? "ONE" more chance? So why does it have to be all about THIS year?

The way I look at it, Venus and Serena are doing great in overtaking Hingis in slam total each individually. Hingis is the one who has been dry for 4 years, while imho I just don't see Venus and Serena being slamless in 4 years. Hingis is the one who is opening up this huge window to be overtaken. I say watch out for Serena!! She could win the US Open and OZ and there you go!! :D

Must we start this again? Pitting players against players. The funny thing is, we all know they focus on their lives. I doubt any of the girls measure themselves compared to another.

But what ever gets you through the day.

Though I will warn you, if Venus gets another slam, somone will push this thread in your face. I won't really be sorry.

Jul 15th, 2002, 06:37 AM
...and so what if she does? What next?

Jul 15th, 2002, 07:37 AM
I wanted to say this in the other thread, but it has been closed. It is now official Toineefa, you are extremely stupid!
Go back and look at your various threads on this board and you will understand why.
