View Full Version : Shaughnessy on Venus

Q. Do you think there's sort of a gap between Venus and Serena as far as players thinking they can beat them? They were lumped together for a while. It seems to me now there's more belief that Venus is a little bit closer to everyone else. Serena still carries around that aura of invincibility.

MEGHANN SHAUGHNESSY: That question keeps coming up every day. I wouldn't say that's true. Right now, Serena's playing better, she's having the better results. But Venus is capable of the same thing that Serena is, I believe. There's other players capable of the same thing.

So I wouldn't -- they're playing better than everyone else right now, but I wouldn't put them at another level from everyone else


Please Venus! Prove Meg right!

Wertheim: Would you agree that there is a sense that Serena has distanced herself from Venus?

Shaughnessy: I wouldn't say that. Serena has been getting the better results. They both have their strengths and weaknesses and they're both different players. I wouldn't say one is at a different level.
