Here's something to really look at in January. If Venus or Serena win the Australian Open next year, they will have completed the ultimate slam sweep. Every single piece of winning hardware that could possibly pick up at the slams, (save for junior and senior titles) they will have on their mantle.

1998 Aus Open-Venus wins mixed w/Gimelstob
1998 French Open-Venus wins mixed w/Gimelstob
1998 Wimbledon-Serena wins mixed w/Mirnyi
1998 US Open-Serena wins mixed w/Mirnyi

1999 French Open-Venus and Serena win womens doubles
1999 US Open-Venus and Serena win womens doubles
1999 US Open-Serena wins womens singles

2000 Wimbledon-Venus and Serena win womens doubles
2000 Wimbledon-Venus wins womens singles
2000 US Open-Venus wins womens singles

2001 Aus Open-Venus and Serena win womens doubles
2001 Wimbledon-Venus wins womens singles
2001 US Open-Venus wins womens singles

2002 French Open-Serena wins womens singles
2002 Wimbledon-Venus and Serena wins womens doubles
2002 Wimbledon-Serena wins womens singles
2002 US Open-Serena wins womens singles

Pretty remarkable eh? :eek: It certainly beats the crap out of what the Mallevas (that other sister family lol) achieved
