The Tennis Channel is showing the sisters in the Lipton Final from 1999.

I am not a fan of Williams finals but to se a match this old with the beads, the chic outfits, and to watch the differences between then and now is really fun.

The one I'd really like to see is their first match AO 98

I dunno why, but my tennis channel is horrible at the moment. It's playing like a scratched dvd :o There's no way I can record it :shrug:

I heard Venus was booed at the end of her match against Graf in the semis of this tournament. Does anyone know why?

This is one of my favorite Venus outfits. There is no doubt in my mind that Venus has been the best attired tennis players ever. Whoever was designing her Reebok outfits back then had a nice funky style. Her colours always used to be well combined and coordinated and suited her youth well.

Whatever happened to those threads about your fave Venus outfit? Boy, those were the days.

As for her tennis, she used to play with so much variety when she was younger. I really miss the old Venus's game. You didn't have to drag her by the nails to the net, either, and she picked up a shot almost from her shoe laces a few games ago which was so well done.

It's a fun match at times while being poor on Serena's part at other times, but it just shows how far she came to dominate the way she did. Nice choice by TTC. I've enjoyed the classic matches of late.

how anyone could call serena a ball basher shocks the shit out of me. serena has such a varied game, especially compared to her sister.
