Question for the thread:

Do you think that RG will be the hardest Slam for Serena to defend?

banana
Feb 23rd, 2003, 11:37 PM
probalby either Jennifer or Justine, in all of Jennifer's interview she's been talking bout how motivated she is to be in the best shape of her life and how hungry she is, even bout the pressure she felt last year, while justine is ready to win a slam and clay is her best surface, isn't it?

tennnisfannn
Feb 24th, 2003, 12:44 AM
Banana, Jennifer has been saying she is motivated and hungry for a long time now. In the last year jen seems to be motivated only when she plays serena, she fights with everything she has got. I won't bet on her until I see results!
As for who will win, Venus can and will. Justine needs more than her A game and so does Kim. Untill they can win it mentally it ain't gonna happen. (AO semis)
Big Title, Big Stage, it has gotta be a williams, preferably Venus coz someone taught Serena to win titles but not to defend them. venus on the other hand knows how to defend her sister's title. (USO 99, kept it till serena was ready to do business again.)

Even though Monica is my favourite player, I doubt she'll win RG this year.

Venus and Serena are my safest bets. Kim's in very good shape and Lindsay looks to be set for a comeback (though maybe not at RG b/c she's at her weakest on clay).

Jennifer's lost to Serena 6 consecutive times since 2001 and hasn't beaten Venus yet. Justine has struggled at the Diamond Games in Belgium and had to take three tough sets in her opening match in Dubai. So those 2 are unlikely to hold the winners trophy in Paris this year.

I have a feeling that Amelie might finally win her 1st GS at RG this year.

Anyway, regardless of whoever wins RG, they'll deserve the victory:)

SerenaSlam
Feb 24th, 2003, 03:42 AM
i think im going to stick w/ venus or serena, they are the best in the world right now, and they have showed it and proved it, and since you are wanting to decide based on the results of now, its clearly venus or serena's title to win or loose. i think when RG starts, it will be the same situation. venus and serena will have won some clay titles, and have a perfect record against the entire wta but themselves.

but im picking venus to win this 1, serena has a lot more power than venus, but on clay she can't "litteraly hit an "off" venus off the court.

venus in 3 sets!

yeah i think its a bit too early but if everyone is fit and playing well barring off days and monumental upsets
its either Henin or Serena,if cappy is fit and motivated and did well on pre french open tournaments aka berlin or roma then she's right below my first two choices.venus as well has good chances of getting her 1st french open however if she meets a determined henin or cappy in a semis or finals she might lose bc she simply isnt that great on clay.not to say she cant play on clay obviously she reached the final last year, and has won rome and hamburg and so on.but usually better clay court players can beat her and have a better chance against her on clay.who did she meet last year to challenge her? who Fernandez wow thats some challenge! so my point, if you compare to how she plays on grass and hardcourts you will notice the huge difference she's never lost in a first round of a grass or hardcourt tournament to my knowlege again my point that clay is where players usually have their best chance against venus and maybe a rather off serena.
clijsters and Mauresmo are the outside dark horses, however we really should wait and see how it goes in the tournaments like charleston, hamburg now warsaw, berlin and roma to determine who will be the favorite to win the french.but in my opinion of the top players they all have an edge against davenport on clay, she simply hasnt played enough on clay or won any significant clay title, what sarasota florida or maybe amelia island which i doubt, sarasota is a tier 3 and was probably a tier 4 back when davenport won it and what else madrid another tier 3.so yeah thats how i see things for the clay season.but we can expect a few surprises as they tend to happen during this rather interesting part of the tennis season, aka majoli at charleston and henin making the finals of amelia, berlin and roma winning berlin.:bounce: ;) :) :D

RG is all about the draw, I have to see the draw first but if I were to bet now I have to go with the female who has the best first and second serve in the game. I would have said Justine about a year ago, but her head is not ready. Jen her serve needs work. Kim not yet ready. Momo, gets hurt too much, head not yet ready. Dani can't hang in long slams her body to frail. I gotta pick Serena or Venus.

i think kim and justine are better clay courters relative to how good they are on other surfaces. they both beat a williams sister on clay last year in a final leading up to the french open. henin won one and lost the other in 3 sets. but then at roland garros got ill. we know that justine has problems with her mentality against other top players and clijsters showed us at the oz open while she can compete with them she still feels the pressure of beating them in one way or another.

i'd say it is out of these 4 players but who wins i don't know. i probably wouldn't bet on venus because she has had some very poor results at roland garros and getting to the final one year doesn't mean she'll consistently get deep into the tournament. the year before she lost in the first round. if venus gets past the first round i would expect her to get to the quarters but from then on she might face top 10 players that are excellent clay couirters on their day players like henin, clijsters, capriati.

i think serena will get to the final or at least the semis. i can't see anyone beating her except for clijsters or henin at the moment. capriati if she is on will challenge serena but i don't know if she would win or not.

the outsidee chance would be dokic but she is not playing well at the moment and hasn't showed signs of doing so.

venus in 3 sets!

Serena really doesn't have more power. She hits as hard as Venus, but she throws her whole body into her stoke. Notice she usually is airborn and at a different angle than she started. Venus stay pretty much the same angle and on the ground. Serena hits harder consitantly, but when Venus smacks at the ball (just watch her during the past 4 finals, when she got impatient she blew them by Rena) she is the hardest hitter in the game, but she uses hard deep shots to set it up, plus she can handle more spins, Rena has a real probelem with that. I think Rena will win, but Venus would be a close second. Venus needs to defeat Rena at IO to have a really good shot though.. I want venus to, but Venus will win Wimby.

Gowza
Feb 25th, 2003, 02:30 AM
tennisIlove09, serena has been gradually and consistently improving her results whereas venus has been up and down.

serena:

98 4th
99 3rd
2000 didn't play
2001 quarters
2002 winner

venus:

97 2nd
98 quarters
99 4th
2000 quarters
2001 1st
2002 RU

venus has lost first and second round, serena never has. but venus usually has a bad year then a good year.

i'm just saying that serena is less likely to lose early based on their results at this tournament over the years. i'm not saying she can't win it. would you bet on an inconsistent horse? i would think not. so why bet pon an inconsistent player?

Venus inconsistent? Finals of 8 of the last 11 Slams. 3 Straight Wimbledon Finals; 3 Straight US Open Finals. Inconsistent?

In tournament play itself, she has only lost BEFORE the finals 6 times since Wimbledon 2001 [BOW 01 QF; AO 02 QF; Dubai 02 QF; Miami 02 SF; Moscow 02 2nd; Champs 02 SF--injured]. Inconsistent?

Do you listen??

Her results on CLAY are consistent, I didn't say at Roland Garros. She has been to plenty of clay finals and semifinals. Everyone takes one bad result and say, "Oh, she is terrible. Her chances aren't so good."

Hingis lost in the first round of Wimbledon TWICE, yet, she was the favorite almost every year. Yes, she won the title once, but she lost in the first round twice after that. Now, if she came back today to play Wimbledon, when she was still #1 and #2, would she not be one of the favorites??

Venus Forever
Feb 25th, 2003, 03:06 AM
Okay, Venus' past record at Roland Garros makes her inconsistent.

Let's look at Kim and Justine.

Kim:
2002- Third Round
2001 - Final
2000 - First Round
Total: 8-3 = 73%

Justine:
1999 - Second Round
2001 - Semifinals
2002 - First Round
Total: 6-3 = 67%

Venus:
1997 - Second Round
1998 - Quarterfinals
1999 - Fourth Round
2000 - Quarterfinals
2001 - First Round
2002 - Final
Total: 18-5 = 78%


As we can see, 78% and Venus lead the pack. Venus has been the most consistent, so according to you, she should be the favorite and should win over Justine and Kim.;)

Gowza
Feb 25th, 2003, 03:10 AM
if venus got to the quarters of roland garros or further 4 years out of 5 that is consistent.

instead she has done this:

97 2nd
98 quarters
99 4th
2000 quarters
2001 1st
2002 RU

the first year she does poorly, the second year she does well,
the third year she has a decent result but as far as a top player is concerned it is not a good result. the fourth year she does well, the fifth year she does poorly and the sixth year she does well.

that is 50/50. half the time she gets to the quarters or further the other half she does worse.

if venus gets past the first round i would expect her to get to the quarters but from then on she might face top 10 players that are excellent clay couirters on their day players like henin, clijsters, capriati

That is basically saying, IF she gets past the first round [doubting ability already] then she most likely won't get past either Henin-Hardenne, Clijsters, or Capriati.

Oh, and Capriati being a better clay court player than Venus, HA! If I am not mistaken, Venus has won more clay court titles than Jen.

relative: Considered in comparison with something else

in other words. henin and clijsters make more of an improvement with their games when clay is the surface (rather than say hard court or grass) than the williams sisters do

I know what relative means, thank you very much. I am giving you facts here, but you are still hung up on saying that Kim and Justine are the better players at Roland Garros. You keep claiming that they probably have a better chance than Venus at winning it.

the point you quoyed wasn't about roland garros. i was trying to get you to understand want RELATIVE means. you obviously don't not know what it means from what you have been saying.

AND I HAVE SAID OVER AND OVER AGAIN THAT VENUS IS A FAVOURITE.

yes and i agree with that. when you came along i was only talking about venus. so why do you keep bringing the belgiums into it?

now i'm sick of arguing we are just going round in circles.

here's how it is:

the belgiums are inconsistent,
venus is inconsistent,
they are all favourties,
venus has a chance to win the title.

which is what i've been saying the whole time.

But, I just want to know who you think will go further.

well i said earlier in one of my posts that you keep quoting me for that i can't pick. i said i think it will be out of venus, serena, kim and justine but i don't know who will win.

but i don't think kim is mentally prepared to beat a williams sister yet. and justine has problems mentally with beating most of the top players which she is slowly ironing out. so that leaves 2 players. guess who?

She's lacking match practice at the mo but she's getting back to her old self again. Hopefully by the time the French comes round she'll be back to her best! :) :bounce:

Serena better win it

but seriously, if any of my top 5 win it, ill be happy

also Monica for sentimental Williams

and Linzi to show those b!tches she may not of won much on clay but she sure CAN damn win on it! (like Serena last year)

if Henin wins it, then ill be dammed

This list is kind of biased. Where is the
greatest player to come out of France in decades?
AMELIE MAURESMO.

AMELIE MAURESMO. I would have put amelie but she is always getting injured..p.s she is considered in the other section.

I donīt know why this thereīs even discussion here. We all know that right now itīs all Williams, all- the time. It doesnīt matter which surface it will be Williams-williams in the final. They showed that the gap is still as big if not bigger!!
