View Full Version : Who you rooting for Serena or Venus 3rd rd

Apr 8th, 2007, 07:24 AM
If they both make it to the 3rd rd of Charleston. Who do you want to advance to the next round.

Apr 8th, 2007, 07:26 AM
Serena of course :) But I hope they both play some good quality tennis :yeah:

Apr 8th, 2007, 07:27 AM
Serena all the way...against anyone.
But its still too early to talk about this match.

Apr 8th, 2007, 07:27 AM
seriously i'm just rooting for Venus to make it to the third round and play better than she did @ AI. That way I will have the comfort of knowing she is actually improving and not continuing her slide backward.

Apr 8th, 2007, 07:28 AM
A part of me wants venus to win so she can improve her ranking and not risk another one of this 3rd rd clashes at the FO.
But I am a sucker ofr a good streak and wold like to see serena keep it going. tennis at the moment needs serena at her best.

Apr 8th, 2007, 07:28 AM
Serena will tank to give Venus the points, after which Venus will say that her serve is working better than ever and Serena will say that Venus just played too good.

Apr 8th, 2007, 07:35 AM
This is a mean thread -- really mean. But if I have to chose, its gotta be Serena! I'm hoping that by years end Serena might be number one!

Apr 8th, 2007, 07:36 AM

Apr 8th, 2007, 07:39 AM
I'm rooting for

<-------------- (as always :cool: )

but I hope they both get there and play a good, high quality match

Apr 8th, 2007, 08:39 AM
Venus she needs it more.

Apr 8th, 2007, 08:39 AM
Serena needs a title on green clay :awww: Vee has 2

Apr 8th, 2007, 08:41 AM

I hope you are joking. If Venus wins I pray people on the board will not try to discredit her win.

Apr 8th, 2007, 08:41 AM
Serena needs a title on green clay :awww: Vee has 2

so :)

Apr 8th, 2007, 09:04 AM
Serena would be heavily picked in this matchup and I'd root for Venus to raise the level of her game and get back on track too.

Apr 8th, 2007, 09:20 AM

Apr 8th, 2007, 09:24 AM
Venus :hearts:

Apr 8th, 2007, 09:33 AM
Well, the last two times they have met, Venus won.
But we're talking two years back.
I will be very much surprised if Venus will make it three in a row.

Apr 8th, 2007, 09:42 AM
Venus. She needs it a lot more than Serena.
But Serena will win in 2 sets.

Apr 8th, 2007, 09:53 AM
Venus for sure;)

is it the 3rd round or 4th round?

Apr 8th, 2007, 10:53 AM

Apr 8th, 2007, 11:39 AM
is it the 3rd round or 4th round?

3rd round

vee to win and i thik that if she gets there, she will

Apr 8th, 2007, 11:50 AM
Assuming they both get there, then Serena.

Apr 8th, 2007, 11:51 AM
is it the 3rd round or 4th round?

There's no 4th r in Charleston. It goes from 3rd r to QF's. :)

Apr 8th, 2007, 11:59 AM
Venus :D

Apr 8th, 2007, 12:00 PM

Apr 8th, 2007, 12:01 PM
venus... but ill be happy either way (go easy on samantha venus)

Apr 8th, 2007, 12:09 PM

Apr 8th, 2007, 12:12 PM
Sorry, but they didn't reach the 3rd round yet.

Apr 8th, 2007, 01:22 PM
Serena. She's playing way better than Venus and deserves to win that match unless Venus could step it up.

Apr 8th, 2007, 01:30 PM
I think Venus needs this win more than Serena ranking-wise

The Dawntreader
Apr 8th, 2007, 01:40 PM
Venus all the way:D

as much as i love Serena, Venus is always my number 1 fav!:bounce:

Apr 8th, 2007, 02:16 PM
Venus she needs it more.

If ever they do meet, I agree with the quoted post above. I wonder how she feels seeing her younger sister beating her performance-wise this year and at tournaments way higher than what she is playing, I mean of course she feels deep inside that she can beat her, she is the older sister btw, I guess there is something in being the older sister. I remember somebody saying about the look on her face when her younger sister won the first slam among them. Anyway, losing to all those players and then losing to her sister would be hard for her. I don't know the William sisters much in that situation but I do know that if I were in her shoes, I'd really want to win that match to show that hey, I'm still here! It's hard to be compared to a sibling LOL.

Apr 8th, 2007, 02:21 PM
I normally don't root for one or the other. But, this time I hope Serena crushes her, no mercy!!! Show her what a real Williams sister should play like......maybe that will inspire her, via a good spanking! :worship:

Apr 8th, 2007, 02:30 PM
Of course for Venus :wavey: :kiss:

Apr 8th, 2007, 02:49 PM
Venus. She´s the one that is more far from her best so it would be more interesting if she played better... Venus is a better athlete than Serena in my opinion, she just isn´t doing the things right, and the 2nd serves are really bad at the moment...

Apr 8th, 2007, 03:09 PM
Well, Venus is my nr. 1 so of course I would be rooting for her, but it´s tough.
Venus needs a good showing and it would be good for her to beat Serena, but I don´t think she will seeing how both their forms are.

Besides I have more faith in Serena going all the way. Venus unfortunately may lose in the quarterfinal. I can´t believe they are meeting this early again but it´s up to Venus to get her ranking up.

Apr 8th, 2007, 03:09 PM
Venus. Right now though I'm not convinced Vee is a cert to even make it to round 3 :scared:

Apr 8th, 2007, 03:11 PM
Serena for sure. Venus is due a beat down :p

Apr 8th, 2007, 03:15 PM
Vee will mysteriously pull out, so Serena.

Apr 8th, 2007, 03:16 PM
i'm hoping for a double withdrawal

The Daviator
Apr 8th, 2007, 03:18 PM
Serena, I want her title run to continue :) I wish Vee was on the other side of the draw though :(

Apr 8th, 2007, 03:19 PM
The problem is Venus beating Serena won't solve her problems on court. I think she will win though because she's the older sister. :)

Apr 8th, 2007, 03:20 PM
I prefer Serena

Apr 8th, 2007, 04:13 PM
Venus! If she plays smart and doesn^t try to overpower every shot, I think she will have a chance to win. But then she does seem to be taped up, which indicates she may have injury problems.

Apr 8th, 2007, 04:16 PM
I'm rooting for Williams.

Apr 8th, 2007, 04:24 PM
The other players on the WTA tour may not have Serena's number, but Venus does. Serena has been saying all year that Venus has been killing her in practice. I pray that Venus will hold that serve together, move her feet, add some spin, and translate her practice performances into a win over Serena. :bounce::bounce:

Even if Venus were ranked 1000 in the world ... I would never root for her opponent. PERIOD

Half the time, I want to reach into the TV and smack Venus, so she can focus, perform to her potential, and not give me a frigging heart attack.

What can I say - whether she excels or tanks - I LOVE VENUS.

As Forrest Gump would say: Venus is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you gonna get

Apr 8th, 2007, 04:25 PM
veee :rocker2:

Apr 8th, 2007, 04:32 PM
as much as I want V to win I think Serena will win it.

I'm not saying Venus will play bad or something like that.

But in my opinion I think Serena at this moment is solid as a rock.

Apr 8th, 2007, 04:36 PM
Serena, I'm more confident Serena could go on and win the tournament. Venus, with her current form, would not win the tournament.

Apr 8th, 2007, 04:39 PM
Serena, because she has a better chance of following through and winning the title. I am not sure if Vee or Ree have ever won this title.

Apr 8th, 2007, 04:44 PM

Vee won it in 2004
I don't know if Serena won it

Apr 8th, 2007, 04:45 PM
I want Serena just because she is on such a roll at the moment and I want her to keep her momentum going (usually I'd be pulling for the sister who is struggling). Also, if Venus needs to get an arse whooping to get her even more determined, then there is only one person I want to deliver it to her and that's Serena.

Apr 8th, 2007, 04:46 PM
Serena :)

Apr 8th, 2007, 04:46 PM
I'm rooting for Williams.

:lol: Me too ;)

Apr 8th, 2007, 04:50 PM
Vee won it in 2004
I don't know if Serena won it

nope never :awww::sad:

Finals in 2003
SF in 2002

She needs to win one too :hug:

Apr 8th, 2007, 04:52 PM
Serena :)

If whoever wins doesn't win the tournament, I'm going to be pissed either way.

Apr 8th, 2007, 05:06 PM
I'm rooting for Serena all the way.

The problem is Venus beating Serena won't solve her problems on court. I think she will win though because she's the older sister. :)
That's my feeling as well. I think Vee's whole mental outlook on a match with her sister is different than with any other player. Beating Serena might actually be easier for her than beating a solid top twenty player. Obviously I'm 100% behind Serena and would want nothing more than a blowout in favor of Serena. I hate to say this, but it wouldn't surprise me if Venus beat her and then went on to lose in the next round. Hopefully little sis gets the win, there's no shame in Venus losing to Serena.

She needs to win one too :hug:

Not even, she lost against Schnyder in quarter in 2002, she squandered 2 MPs in the third :mad:

I'm rooting for Venus. She really really really need this right now.

Apr 8th, 2007, 05:39 PM
Serena! Sorry Venus, if it were anyone else I'd be rooting for you.

Apr 8th, 2007, 05:51 PM
Serena. Hopefully it will be a good match

Apr 8th, 2007, 05:54 PM
I'm leanin towards serena, simply because she'll most likely win the whole tournament. In the FIRST place however, I get the feelin Serena will be playing Stosur instead of Vee in the 3rd round :(

Black Mamba.
Apr 8th, 2007, 05:56 PM
Serena but I doubt Vee is gonna get that far.

Apr 8th, 2007, 06:01 PM
its been quite a while since the last Williams "derby". Iam for Venus but i think Serena will take the match in straight sets :p

Apr 8th, 2007, 06:15 PM
Gosh, this is so hard, I love them both. Should they meet I will lean a little to Rena but only because I want a Williams to win the competition and she seems more likely (at the moment) to do so. Either way, I really hate this, only like seeing them against each other in finals.

In The Zone
Apr 8th, 2007, 07:30 PM
I am rooting for Serena. I love Venus more but Venus can win and then lose the next round. I'd rather Venus get more hungry and have a s trong Serena win the tournament. Venus is a mess right now :[

Apr 8th, 2007, 09:04 PM
This 'she needs it more' argument is interesting, but at the end it'll be who actually steps up and takes it. Serena's done what she's needed to do so far this season. Go Serena.

Apr 8th, 2007, 09:38 PM
serena because she's is the better player.

im so tired of serena saying venus always beats her in practice. everyone knows it a lie and she's just saying it to support venus. venus needs to start bring it. PERIOD

Apr 8th, 2007, 09:39 PM
I don't know...I don't have much preference...but I see Serena sailing through...Venus played disgracefully in Amelia...

Apr 8th, 2007, 09:43 PM
I'm rooting for Venus. But realistically, Serena has found her game this year, and Venus has not, Memphis not withstanding. Arguably, Venus was simply having trouble with the wind at AI, but I've been to Charleston many many times, and I've been to the tournament site. It can get windy.

Apr 8th, 2007, 10:05 PM
I want a Williams to win. And if Venus beats Serena she will probably crash out in one of the next rounds depending on how she plays. Serena has more confidence so I would rather see her win because she has a better chance of winning the title. If Venus was in good form I would want her to win so she could take her second title of the year. But who knows.

Apr 8th, 2007, 10:50 PM
Serena, always.
It would be a shame if Venus beat her, considering their current form.

Nobody's Perfecc
Apr 8th, 2007, 10:59 PM
I want Serena to continue her winning streak. But I have a feeling that Venus will win.

PS. Why the hell do they always draw each other before the quarterfinals? It seems to happen more often than not. And this is the 2nd tournament in a row. I'm aware of their rankings, but their unlucky at not drawing each other.

Apr 8th, 2007, 11:01 PM
Oh you ALREADY know!!!

GO VEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (but ya gotta make it their first! ;))

Apr 8th, 2007, 11:01 PM
Venus 100% forever and always but I am not even sure Venus will make it that far and even less sure she can beat Serena :sad:
