It seems like total domination but thats just becuase there r two of them . Williams fans have 2 bites at the cherry where as most fans have 1. If you take a look at there records seperatly they havernt achieved anything none of the other girls have at the top of the game, why dont yu just pick one sister,or cant you stand the fact they will get beaten

Bezza, but they don't get beaten at all almost.
They soldemly lose & they beat other players(top players) constantly.
Venus & Serena have conquered Martina, Lindsay, & Jen.
Monica plays small events constantly to get to #1, of course she wins if she plays palyers out of top 50 in the finals!
It's like she beat Venus & now she is afraid to face her again. Canb't ait for the Querters when Venus will spank her ;)
Kim is a great player & Justine, but they can't beat them constantly.

Serena is always losing when it comes to GS's she gets to the semi's alright and then messes up, she hasnt won a GS in 3 years just like martina. Venus i agree she is the best player in the world at the moment but to say THEY are dominating is rubbish, justine,kim,martina,monica and jennifer (aswell as testud and schnyder) can beat both of them and have this year.

BEZZA. GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT.
'she hasn't won a GS in 3 years just like martina.'
Hingis last won a slam in January 99 and Serena last won a slam in September 99. So it is not yet 3 YEARS !!!!!

Well DD, seeing as we're in the third season since that happened, Bezza wasn't totally wrong.
But if your going to be anal, its 2 and a half. People were saying Martina hadn't won a slam in 3 years in 2001, so go figure.
Sheesh, you'd think Bezza was attemtping to take away your civil rights or something.
Either way - congrats to Venus and Serena, for their individual accomplishments.

Oh Im' sorry - my bad.

thanx becca for stating the obvious DD i didnt know we had to be that precise, i meant in years like becca said they refered to martina's drought of 3 years before this years ozzie open.

Venus and Serena are the best.....both individually and as a team!:wavey:
Bezza....they have accomplished far more than you want to admit. Just ask Anna.:p

At this point in time i dont agree, if serena manages to WIN a GS this year i will admit i was wrong, until she does, i stick to what i said earlier. Venus i have no question with she is a top consistent performer including at the GS's.

Venus and Serena will be #'s 1 & 2 for Wimbledon. Definitely!!
May 26th, 2002, 02:14 AM
There IS a difference:
While Martina went almost 3 years without a SLAM, she was ranked #1.
That was the issue. Serena has NEVER been ranked #1
Serena, however is now ranked #3 for the first time.
To back this up and climb higher she MUST start winning SLAMS.
On this point , I agree.

Note that in 2001, While Venus and Serena were NOT ranked #1 or #2, They actually took home MORE prize money from tournaments, by WINNING or placing well in the Tourneys that had the BIGGIST purses. Ericsson, Indian Wells, Wimbledon, Canadian Open, US Open, Sannex Championships.
I believe they were #1 and #2 last year in prize money, dispite playing a VERY light schedule.
