I can't believe Venus has only won 2/4 of the Slams. I think most of her will, and already do, think of he as a one-court wonder.

I'd take 7 slams over someone having 3/4

Venus has been in 13 grandslam finals on every surface, won the doubles career grandslam, has 37 titles on all different kinds of surfaces and yet most think she is a one court wonder. :confused:

Nice try.:wavey:

Venus is the second most complete player on tour.

She is 1 of 2 players to reach finals on all surfaces. 1 of 3 players that have the Golden doubles slam( I think danny has it??? or maybe that is in mixed). Venus has won in mixed at the French Open and Down Under. The rest of the field is way behind.

1. Serena is 10/12 missing mixed at the French and Down Under.
2. Venus is 8/12 been to all finals but missing mixed at Wimbledon(Where she won runner-up , and at U.S. Open

I have a feeling, if you were to ask..., oh..., let's say..., Lindsay Davenport if she would trade her 1 Australian for 4 other Wimbys, you'd get a resounding, "YES!"

Even if you forget the fact that Venus can play great on clay and carpet you just need to look at her hardcourt record, particularly at the USO: 2 wins, 2 finals, 3 SF, 1 QF, 1 4th round. She's solid in NYC, definitely not a one court wonder, especially since she has defended her title in NYC too and made the final on her debut.

Also if you reach a milestone of five at the biggest tournament in the world and can be compared to the likes of Navratilova, Graf and BJK then it doesn't really matter. She'll always be remembered for her greatness. As Venus herself said if there is one place to win five titles it's Wimbledon, it just means more that way.

Oh come on, let Venus and her fans have their day :o

What Venus has done is incredible, don't try to downplay it. And I'm not even a Venus fan. I just respect her so much.

This is ridiculous. So unneeded and so bitter.

I'd take 7 slams and 5 Wimbledons over 3 slams.

Wait, you're right. Venus Williams is not a great player. She just has won the most prestigious championship 5 times but you're right, she is horrible.

I guess you know Venus is back on top when the haters come back. :yeah:

Look at the wonderful Monica Seles.

Australian Open, 4 wins.

French Open, 3 wins, 1 final.

Wimbledon, 1 final.

U.S Open, 2 wins, 2 finals.

Venus, who has been able to play at her peak more often, because she wasn't stabbed, however:

Australian Open, 1 final.

French Open, 1 final.

Wimbledon, 5 wins, 2 finals.

And yet, you all say Venus is greater than Monica? :rolleyes: I think I've made my point.
U.S Open, 2 wins, 2 finals.

2/4 or 3/4 doesn't matter.
4/4 is what matters ;)

Borg and McEnroe only had 2/4 and they are legends.

Although I think to be really great you should be #1 in the rankings year in year out and be consistently up there in the slams and have a bunch of slam titles.
