You make no sense. Serena cant beat Venus, because Venus is older? Where is the logic behind that?

no.. what i meant was there will always be sibling rivalries in life, in tennis, at school whatever. and usually (most of the time) the younger always look up to the older one.

And i'm not saying this is bad, as i am a younger sibling myself, but can you imagine what it feels like to be #2 behind your younger sibling??

I think it's OK because older siblings often take pride in the achievements of their younger siblings, more than the other way round. Of course that's a terrible generalisation and I'm sure in many families it's the other way round, or both do, or they are just out and out rivals!

However, I like Venus so I hope she turns it round soon!

Well they are both very similar in talents, there is no rule that says that Venus has to win more than Serena. If serena wins more grandslams than Venus, I don't think Venus will be so down because she was the older sister and blah blah.
I think the starter of the thread wants to start something
Furthermore, Venus and Serena make more money than there older sister, I guess their older sisters should be bitter and jealous uh?

Love of family is what Venus and Serena have.

I don't think it's fair to include the Grand Slam Cup matchups in any head-to-head... yes, almost every magazine and newspaper will be quick to include them but that event (now extinct) was not an official WTA tournament at all. I consider it an exhibition, so actually Serena and Venus stand at 5-5 (assuming the rest of the list is complete and correct).
