I want Serena because V has enough Wimby's and Serena needs to win somewhere else for once. But at the same time I feel like Venus needs to solidify her position as best grass-courter, and if she can't beat Serena here, she can't beat her anywhere. But I still want Serena! :)

I want Serena to win because...she's kind of the underdog (in my opinion) going into the final this year.

Venus. The one I can stand.

She'll lose though. I just know it.

Serena obviously, since she hasn´t won another major, with the exception of Australia at this very tournament in 2003!!!

Venus. I would like for her to add to her resume'. Serena can have the US open. Yet, I think Serena's game is more technically sound so she has a good shot against Vee. Yet this is Venus's best chance to beat the steamroller and change the head 2 head around in finals.

Venus. She has a much more appealing game on grass. If you move Serena outside her comfort zone (serve and return), her tennis looks clumsy and ugly as hell. Even though I was never a fan of Venus, her movement, strokes on the run and her full aggression on the surface can be pretty to watch.

Venus needs the win more so she can:
-win Wimbledon for the first time without dropping a set.
-successfully defend a Grand Slam title for the first time since 2001.
-catch up Henin in Grand Slams
-defend her ranking points from last year,
-join an elite group of individuals who have won Wimbledon five times,
-win her first title of 2008
-climb into one of the 8 spots in the Sony Ericsson Championships Race.
-promote her clothing line, Eleven, further by posing with the 2008 Wimbledon trophy.
- Level the overall H2H with Serena at 8-8.
- try to level the record of Grand Slam finals both have played in. It is currently 5-1 in Serena's favour.

I would be just a little more happy if Venus won than Serena.
That's exactly how I felt before Wimbledon even started this year.

Now that they both have the opportunity, I want Venus to win her 5th Wimbledon than Serena her 3rd, because Serena is the type of player who can come back next year and mow down everyone in her path to take the title if she stays healthy. Obviously, Venus can do the same, but I would feel a lot better if she takes it now.

Serena Williams will win anyway. Reason why?

* Serena Williams energy and condition is better
* Serena Williams makes less errors at the baseline
* Serena Williams is a lot more focused
* Serena Williams has beaten Venus in almost any GS final
* Serena Williams has beaten Venus 2 times on grass
* Serena Williams has played a lot better than Venus

Do I need to get on and on?

I fairly hope it's a good match.

the first one, i do not agree with at all.
Venus is better at net, Venus is defending champion so knows what it's like to win here, Serena hasn't in 5 years, and your last one is arguable

Well, If it comes to 3 sets, Venus will be drained and slacking in the 3rd. She has that way during the last years, partially caused by her disease.

Serena Williams has won there 2 times and defeated Venus 2 times, she knows what it is to beat her sister and win the title.

Jul 4th, 2008, 05:34 PM
I'll be happy for either to win but I do want Venus to win so that she can level slams with JH and EGC, so she can stay at her current ranking, I think she needs it more (she's had the much less successful year), she needs a really good top 10 win (better than a win against ED on grass) and so that their head to head can be level and their GS final head to head won't be so completely lopsided.

However I'll be happy for Serena to win too because she's overdue for another win at Wimbledon, I'd love to see her get to the same number of slams as Seles (I know this won't make her as good as Seles in many people's opinions, but it's something) and for her ranking too!

I really have no idea.
I'd love for Serena to get another Wimbledon, I think the course of the tournament has pointed to this. I find the champions normally have to be tested most in that tournament, and that would definitely point more towards Serena, since I think she had a slightly harder draw.

But I love Venus and would love to see her hold the trophy for the fifth time.

I guess it's win-win.

Jul 5th, 2008, 08:59 AM
I am VERY torn about the final. At the beginning of the year I want ed V to win the first 2GS and Rena the next 2, but instead V ended up having an averagola first half of the year...
Serena has been serving better than V and her return are always great, but V's movement is a lil better..
It would be nice to see V evening her H2H and finally getting a title..
But I really want a competitive match. If it goes to 3 sets I favour Rena..
I'm SOOO HAPPY BOTH GIRLS GOT TO THE FINALS!!!

Hate them both, but Venus acted like a bitch not being polite against Lena at the semis.
She had a few net points, I mean when the net helped her get a point, and she didn't even took her racket up to say sorry.
I hate when players are too sure of themselves, not giving a f*ck about others.
Lena never deserved this kind of treatment.

I love both of them equally..but I kinda want Serena to win it...she hasnt wont it since 2003 ..so I think while she's healthy and a little more fit, she needs to try to snatch it while she can. I think Venus will win another wimbledon or 2 the next few years...

From 2008 point of view and near future, Serena is serious contender to win every slam (Venus just Wimbledon and USO) and of course Serena is younger - so for Venus much more exist "this is maybe last chance for GS title" fear. Also if Serena wins h2h in GS finals will be 6-1 for Serena which is extremly unfair - main reason for that is fact that all 5 previous wins Serena have in 2002 and 2003 when she played dominant, career best tennis... 5-2 will be much more fair. So i'm with Venus this time.

But on other hand part of me want to finaly watch 3-setters at some WTA GS final, which means almost sure wins for way fittest Serena (more than 2 years Venus not played more than two hours on same level, unlike her sister which dont have that problem at all).
