A rather interesting streak may continue this week. Since (that is, not including) OZ 2002, Venus and/or Serena has played in the finals of every tournament they entered except one in each case.

Venus didn't make the Dubai final.
Serena didn't make the Charleston final.

This list includes all Tier II, Tier I and GS tournaments play by Venus or Serena since OZ 2002.

Paris Venus Williams def. Jelena Dokic
Antwerp Venus Williams def. Justine Henin
Dubai Amelie Mauresmo def. Sandrine Testud
Scottsdale Serena Williams def. Jennifer Capriati
Miami Serena Williams def. Jennifer Capriati
Amelia Island Venus Williams def. Justine Henin
Charleston Iva Majoli def. Patty Schnyder
Hamburg Kim Clijsters def. Venus Williams
Berlin Justine Henin def. Serena Williams
Rome Serena Williams def. Justine Henin
Roland Garros Serena Williams def. Venus Williams
Wimbledon Serena Williams def. Venus Williams

The GS, Tier I and Tier II tournaments they didn't play in were Toray Pan Pacific, Indian Wells and Eastbourne.

All Williams all the time. Has a nice ring to it. And we're almost there.

If the stats aren't good enough, and they should be, you can always make some up.

Venus and Serena have won six the last nine GS tournaments.

Let's credit Lindsay, Mary and Jenn where its due.
