11 Years Ago... Venus Williams Sizzles In Sydney Teenqueen Battle, Martina Hingis, Australian Open, Lawn Tennis Magazine

MELBOURNE--(lawntennismag.com) Reigning Wimbledon champion Venus Williams of the USA is yet to win the upcoming Australian Open, but eleven years ago, Williams posted a major breakthrough at an Australian Open warmup tournament at Sydney as she would defeat her then teenqueen rival, Martina Hingis of Switzerland.

Hingis and Williams both first became famous as preteen tennis prodigies, but as Hingis had chosen to play and rule over the junior tennis circuit, Williams as well as her younger sister Serena Williams had for the most part remained some sort of mysteries, unseen to most of the tennis public.

That entire tournament had some crazy matches. Davenport beat Kournikova in 3 sets and then lost to Serena in 3 sets after being up 5-1 in the 3rd.Arantxa went on to drub Serena in the SF 6-2,6-1 and Venus 6-1,6-3 in the final.A lot of great match ups for a Tier 2.:drool:
