It is my dream match to see both Serena and Venus playing their best against each other. So far it hasn't happened, and I begin to wonder if it will ever happen. If I had to guess, I would go with Venus.

I think venus at her best , would destroy serena at her best. venus can retrun serena's first serve like its nothing , while serena only has an adantage on Venus' second serve. Serena has the forehand advantage. Venus has the backhand advantage and net advantage. All venus has to do is go backhand down the line, forehand down the line, backhand down the line and then keep doing that til serena misses, or she could wrong foother a few times . i think Venus is on to something. watch that match carefully, when Venus was in deep deep trouble seh use a few plays that she knew would work for her. she definately knows what it takes to beat serena. She at some points mades Serena look helpless, she needs to do more of that

Venus gets my vote. All the serious analysts (not those three crackpots from ESPN) say that since Venus is faster and stronger, she has the advantage because she's not quite at her full potential. Imagine if she used that incredible reach, blanketed the net, used that killer backhand, tightened up that forehand and smoothed out her serve. OMG, who could beat her?

I have to say in the venus vs serena matches we haven't seen the real venus...She seems to go away...Venus misses to many first serves and has a lot of miss hits.

Serena would beat Venus at her best.

She has a lethal forehand and backhand if they're on.
Also a powerful serve.
Serena's fast and would return all Venus' balls back.

I think Serena would win.

Ya'll can all speculate on the what if's...But guess what guys. Who has won the last 4 grand slam finals.

It is so funny to see the W fans split down the middle. I think everyone's true colors are coming out

Serena fans: Now you see how us Jenn fans felt after Jenn beat her in 2001? ;)

SERENA ROCKS!!!!

Serena at her best is better than Venus at her best no question.

How can there be no question?? We have never seen them both at their best.

Serena has been closer to her best than Venus, and she only holds a 5-4 record over her.

Hmmm...

No actually her record against Venus is 5-0 at her best ..she was 0-4 before she really became the Serena we know today.

Okay, so Venus is 4-0 when they are both at their worst, so wouldn't that mean if they both played their best she would win??:p

To all those saying Venus is better: Venus is just as dominant as she was when she was #1 and winning slams. I see no real difference in her game. Her forehand was always erratic. Her second serve was always a weakness. Nowadays there is someone who can exploit it. That is the difference. I mean if Serena wasn't around we would have witnessed the Venus slam. So lets not pretend she hasn't been playing well lately. The only person who is beating her when it matters is Serena in the finals as opposed to Seles, Schett and Hingis (in QF, 1r and SF respectively) in the year before Serena's dominance. Its hard to argue with the fact that 11 sets have been played between these 2 in the last year and the score is 10-1 in Serena's favour.

Serena would beat Venus at their bests - she is a more complete player by some way.

Hey Venus Forever, hey what's the big deal who's better. Like the Williams' fans always said "It doesnt matter who wins as long as a Williams wins, we want them to win equally" I remember all those comments. Now it seems like the lions are rearing their ugly heads" I love it. I hope Serena keeps dominating.

If Both got in 100% of their first serves, Both made 1 UE per game and both were just on in every sense in the word,

Venus would win....but we'll never know

I for one never said anything about wanting Serena and Venus to have everything equal.;)

Venus will always be my top fave no matter what. Occasionally I will root for Serena in a slam over Venus, but not anytime soon.

GO VENUS!! SWEEP THE REST OF THE MAJORS IN 2003 AND PROVE ALL OF THEM WRONG!!

Hey Venus Forever, I know you like Venus more. Venus will come back and win some GS. She is too talented. But what I was saying is that there were some posters who were Williams Sisters, Williams sister this and that, and now that Serena is dominating, I actually see some very negative comments towards her from those same posters...I never thought I would see the day...;)

I don't think it's negativity, it's just the sisters have become more defined as players and human beings and the Williams Sisters fans have now become more grown to one on the other. But most do still love both, like I do, but just have a favorite of the two.
