Venus is already down to #5.

And with Serena out of the US Open, she will lose tons of points and lose the #1 ranking, I would say all the way to #3 if Justine performs well at the US Open. Plus she has TONS of points to defend in the next 12 months.

So Serena at #3, Venus at #5. It's over guys, with their injuries, their outside interests, the era is over. Kim & Justine will gain so much confidence and it will be so hard for the Williams to get back on top. Venus hasn't been able to get back on top for years now and Serena is next to suffer the same outcome.

The Williams era is over! :dance:

The Belgians era has begun! :clap2:

Williams sisters fans, bow to your new queens: Kim & Justine. :worship: :bowdown:

Monica Seles Era 1990-1993:

* 4-3 record against Graf including 3-1 in grandslam finals.
* 10-5 record against Navratilova including 1-0 in grandslam finals.
* Won 7 of the last 8 grandslams entered including the last 3 French Opens, the last 3 Australien Opens, the last 2 US Opens, and also the last 3 Wta championships.
* Had an astonishing 55-1 match run in grandslams up until 1993.
* Surpassed Graf at the French, Australien, US Open & the wta championships despite being 4.5 years younger. And even at Wimbledon Monica had a better record then both Graf and Navratilova at a similar stage in their careers.
* MONICA IS THE GREATEST.

Just goes to show ya anything can happen. It doesnt take a tragedy to knock you from the top spot.

Take a look at what's happened to the last three dominant number ones. Serena done in by injury/surgery, Hingis done in by injury/surgery,Graf done in by injury/surgery, Seles done in by madman w/a knife.

I wonder if Kim will wish Serena a speedy recovery is she wins the US Open?

I'd have liked for months Venus to fall at #5, so she can beat Clijsters already in the Quarters!! :)
You read my mind!

Venus will take out both Belgium's in the US Open.
If she's healthy she'll whomp them both.
Justine has never beaten Venus on hard court.
Kim has only beat Venus on clay(the ret. by Venus at the ending year championships doesn't count).

Serena's hurt and down and Venus will uphold the family name.
The best thing about this is both sister's will get so many more bonus points each time they beat the Belgiums.

SR, keep dreaming!
The William's era is far from over!
So sorry Seles is a non-issue knowadays.

Venus: 2003 US Open Champion!

Luci what are you talking about. Im supporting the Williams Sister. The BelgAINS have only won 1 slam. Anyways it wont last long if they become #1 and #2 because the play 20 tournaments and will have sooo many points to defend. Funny, at their peak they still get bitch slapped by Venus and Serena. OOOH i cant wait till Venus plays henin because their last 4-5 match, Venus has beaten the hell out of Justine, so they try to protect Justine by giving her to Serena :rollseyes:

I know I'm repeating things, just to try again:

It's not more difficult to defend if your points are nicely spread out over 20 tournaments. If you fail to do well once, you'll hardly see the
difference as your 18 th best will come to the rescue.

In both Serena and Venus' case things are different, as you are about to witness. The simple fact that she fails to turn up for 1 particular tournament just costs her about 17 % of her points total. I'm not making this up, that's what will happen in about 3 weeks.

Is it difficult repeating final appearances continuously?

Yes if you have a drop in your level of play.

15 consecutive SF, of which 7 Wins and 4 lost finals seem to suggest it's feasable...
