I honestly can't stand it when people insinuate stuff like this. It belittles the sisters, and rubbishes their hardwork. It's just not fair.

Potentially this.

Rightly or wrongly i don't see Serena (having just won Miami and back at number 1) going all out to routine Venus and win this event, especially as despite her competitiveness Serena will know how much more a victory here would mean to Venus at this stage in their careers.

Not saying she'll throw the match, but the emotions involved before were something, imagine how intense they'll be now, with one sister knowing the other is playing with an autoimmune disease.

I hope they both play a brilliant match and turn back the clock ten years, but no matter what happens it'll make for compelling viewing.

Well for me as a Williams sisters fan it's a no-brainer.
Serena is n1 in the world, she has won 2 GSs, Olympics, Miami and YEC in the past year, while Venus has won Luxembourg.
Venus needs this win a lot more than Serena does.

Re: WWW Charleston SF: Serena or Venus?

What time does it start? I have a tennis match of my own saturday so I want to make sure I have time to view this history. I have a feeling this may be the penultimate match between the sisters, with the ultimate Swan match coming at the French Open, Venus getting revenge 11 years later and winning her first French title

Re: WWW Charleston SF: Serena or Venus?

Their matches aren't planned. Only time I think their match was "planned" was during the YEC RR in 2009. I think they planned for whoever won the first set to take the second. That way the loser would be good for the tiebreaker to move onto the semis. It worked out like that because Venus was 1-2 in RR and moved on based on sets won

Other than that, no matches are planned. Want proof? Go watch the US Open 2008 QF. That match is a signature power hitting match at it's finest. Serena and Venus were matching each other blow for blow and covering an insane amount of court.

Serena will win, but Venus really needs it more. It'll set her up ranking wise for the rest of the year.

Probably. Here's hoping Venus isn't going to be running on fumes, because it could actually be a potentially nice match. We're guaranteed at least some sporadic patches of decent shot-making at least.

First clay match for 11 years too.
