View Full Version : Are Venus and Jennifer the same when playing Serena?

Both these ladies are exceptional athletes and have some amazing power, but can mental issues be attributed to both as being the key reason for their losses to Serena?

Both Venus and Jen's physical fitness levels have looked suspect, but both have been improving (especially Jen).

Jen's serve is always a liability, but she has been working on it, whilst Venus' is a killer 1st but very shaky 2nd.

Barring the above, these girls can hang with Serena like NO other woman on tour (Kim Clijsters still hasn't convinced me), so are Venus and Jennifer victims of mental pressure against Serena??

Or are their games that easy for Serena to dissect?

I don't get it, I really expected on of the two to defeat her (Venus at AO and Jen at Miami).

It looks like Jen and Venus have more in common than we thought.....

I think if maybe Jen C. gave Venus some of her fiestyness and Venus gave Jen C. some mellowness it would help both players greatly :-)

I agree, Venus needs some more smack ass attitude and Jennifer needs to learn to 'get over it' and play the next point.

Then Serena will be in sum serious trouble!!!!
