View Full Version : Oh, before I forget, those who don't want an all-Williams final, please ...

... enjoy the up coming semis. As I said the last time, don't come in here, during and after the final, complaining:

- you're bored with the same old thing;
- It's a power feast, not tennis;
- it's just hitting the ball and then hitting it harder;
- finesse has vacated Flushing Meadow;
- Richard is annoying;

You have the chance to delight in two superb semi-finals. Remember my former advice, consider them as finals. Picture that:

Serena - Lindsay
Venus - Amelie

Sound great as finals!

Now, those who always wanted an all-Williams final, this is your time. These semis will be ecstatic (it's US Open after all), and hopefully your big day will come.

Go Serena!
Go Venus!

:angel: :angel:

Well...don't get angry if either Amelie or Lindsay pull
the upset off by saying the whole world is against
an all Williams final.

So what you are saying, is that if people don't like what they see, they aren't supposed to post about it because you guys don't want to hear about it?

Yeah, right :p Its a message board, I would encourage everyone to post their opinions in a tactful manner ...

Wow! THREE finals!
That would mean three additional trophies in the WILLIAMS family. :)

Sep 5th, 2002, 08:53 PM
SEMIS: Williams will win.

FINAL: VENUS will win.

She's your baby sis. Venus dont let her win this time.Its time you showed the world who the real tennis queen is.

I must say - I understand why non-fans of the Sisters would find another final between them less than exciting and enjoyable. I only get really excited when one/both of my girls are playing. But if they're not around at the final dance, I still enjoy it, because I just love tennis and like to keep up.

Lordy - but lookie here what has to happen for Venus to reach numero uno.


SECURING RANKING: If Serena Williams defeats Lindsay Davenport in Friday's semifinal, she will be assured of holding onto the No. 1 ranking, regardless of what happens in Saturday night's final.

To overtake her sister in the rankings, Venus Williams would need Davenport to win the semifinal against Serena and then Venus would have to defeat Davenport for the championship Saturday night.


Sep 5th, 2002, 11:27 PM
I would prefer a Davenport-Mauresmo final because they are my two of my favourite players... but I'm not adverse to an all Williams final. It would be nice to have either one of Davenport or Mauresmo in the final just to make things different but all in all, I just want to be entertained for the upcoming three matches..... SO SERENA, VENUS, LINDSAY and AMELIE... PLAY WELL FOR ME!!!!! ;)

Good thread Tennis Power.:)

I like all four players so I will be happy with whoever gets there, BUT I will be overjoyed if my top two favs are in the finals.

Williams vs. Williams

Thanks, Jovon.

Sep 6th, 2002, 08:17 AM
CYBELLE!!!!!!! Where the hell did you find that icon? I WANT IT!!!!

As for another all-Williams final: I am always gonna be intrigued by everytime they face each other. BUTTTTTTTT......I wanna see it go 7-6(20-18) in the third set.


Sep 6th, 2002, 01:06 PM
Two kick ass sets by V & S will be fine with me.

So can I say "Richard is annoying" for the time being? :confused: ;)

Sep 6th, 2002, 01:40 PM
LOL! Yes, TheCrow, you can. :)

Though faintly! ;)

Indeed, Informative. Woohoo! They did!

Woohoo, I need some time to calm down!

Sep 6th, 2002, 11:43 PM
I thoroughly enjoyed both those finals. I was some real nerve wrecking tennis. I can sit back and enjoy the third final. :bounce:

Sep 6th, 2002, 11:56 PM
I hope to enjoy the two finals today.. hope Venus can win the 3rd on tomorrow.

Not even Venus can beat Serena. Serena can certainly hand the match to Venus by making too many UEs, but Serena just serves better (not neccessarily faster, but better motion/placement), hits much harder, moves just as well (IMO better on a hard court), and has more variety (net play/angles). Serena will win in two.

I thoroughly enjoyed both finals today, and now I'm gearing up for the big one tomorrow.:D :D :cool: We're very lucky.:wavey:

Do people really expect to see many more all-Williams finals? I don't. Not that I don't like them, I just don't think the odds are that good that it will happen many more times. Venus had to survive two close matches to make this final. Will she be able to do that over and over again? I don't think so. Also, injuries can always crop up for one of the 2 sisters. Finally, one of them can always have an off day, or simply lose her edge on the rest of the field through lack of proper training. I think we should enjoy this phenomenon while it lasts and hope for a good match. It's quite likely that we'll never see an all-Williams final or an all-in-the-family final of any kind again in our lifetimes.

Sep 7th, 2002, 05:56 AM
LOL!!!! Another page in the history books. Congratulations to Venus and Serena for taking it to another level once again! Get ready for another prime time sister show!!!!
