to davenport and hingis? When people say that they were the reason hingis retired and that davy stopped winning the slams, i didn't think much of it. But I was thinking last night, I was going through all the slams in my head since 1999, and I realized...if richard and oracine has waited another 4-5 years to have Venus + Serena, Lindsay COULD have won ten slams! I know this is a stupid thought, and that it is wishful thinking, but here's the seven slams she probly would have won if V+S were a few years younger and still young players about to dominate :

USO 1999 - Lindsay was on a winning streak and looked HOT! NO1 exept serena could have stopped her then.

AO 2000 - Won

FO - Clay (not a chance)

Wimby 2000 - Beaten in Final, Serena was out and no1 else could have beaten Davey on grass then.

USO 2000 - Beaten in final by Venus AGAIN! Thats 3 already.

AO 2001 - Don't know what happend there, but cappy might of had her.

FO - -

Wimby - Beaten semi-finalist by Venus AGAIN, serena was already out. So she probly would of beat Henin in final on grass.

USO 2001 - Played out of her skin, but a HOT serena took her out again. This showed that she could live with the best player in the world at her BEST, but could hardly move. This tells me that Davey has the best game in the world (exept one of the mosst important things - movement)

AO 2002 - DNP

FO 2002 - DNP

USO 2002 - Serena again in semi's, she would have met MOMO in final, and probly would have beaten her.

AO 2003 - Henin

FO 2003 - injured

Wimby 2003 - Lost in quarters to Venus with a point to prove, I must say she probably would have lost to one if the belgans, so I wont count this one.

USO 2003 - Possably no WS, can she do it, can she find the form at the end of 2001? If she could, could she beat Kim?

So, that is:
USO 1999
Wimby 2000
USO 2000
Wimby 2001
USO 2001
USO 2002
Wimby 2003

Thats 7!!!!!!!


I know this thread is rediculous, but it shows how great the WS are, and how much they have effected 2 of the greatest women tennis players ever.

Yep! They sure ruined the career of Lindsay. Blame Wertheim for that!! Whenever he says something stupid about them, they go on a TEAR!!

In ´99 after Serena´s loss in Paris:" Serena reminds me of Shaq. Plenty of power, but no excellence at crunch-time." Not even three months later Serena wins the Open beating THREE former champions back to back to back!! Including the world no.2 and no.1! Damn!!

In ´00 barely a few weeks he says that for all their hype they haven´t won a thing yet! Bang, Venus goes on to rack up a 34!! match winning streak, that includes Wimby, the Open, Olympic Gold. Damn, how´s that for shutting up someone?!

In late ´01: again about Serena. "For all her notoriety many players have met her solitary slam and it´s getting to put-up or shut-up time."
Bam! Serena goes on to win FIVE of the last Six slams she has played, including FOUR in a row!!

Damn, these girls sure can shut up people!!

They have an uncanny ability to shut up commentators at mid sentence during a match or immediately after making a criticism of them.

So true. I love it when Mary Carillo especially is bitching about how Venus or Serena seem to be slacking and as soon as that mess leaves her lips they either play a fantastic rally or a fantastic shot. :lol:

Yep this happened to Carillo at the US Open final in 2001 when she was talking about people being suspicious of the sisters matches being fixed. She said Serena won 10 of 13 points, and that Venus had dropped her form, and right after she said this, Venus moved in to hit a blistering inside out forehand winner.

They do really shut up the stank commentators. I loved how they would make Chris Evert look stupid on TV all of the time.

no- the best shut up ever was exactly this:

Venus vs. Hantuchova at 2003 Australian Quarters.

Venus hits this ugly forehand into the net when she was breakpoint up, pam states this:

"now when you see a forehand like that, go that off, and into the net, its time to pick on it"

Daniela then serves up a first serve sliced outwide to Venus' forehand at 91 mph, and venus wacks for a wicked 94mph return winner cross court.

All Pam could say was, "well she has these ebs and flows" It shut her the fuck up so quick, Mary C was laughin, and that other annyoyance (forgot his name) was buggin too.

It was too funnie. But yeah, they shut a lot of people up.

In fact last year, people were questioning them on tournies played, and if they could play the system to become 1 and 2. Last year they showed they could do it, this yaer they went back to their old ways. Personally that is what i would've done. They shut everyone up and showed that they can play a couple more tournies, and get to number 1 and 2 in the world. And matter of fact, I beileve it was serena who was at like 9 or 10 in the world at the beginning of the year last yaer, and still got to number 1 in the world by June. That is what you call great playing and skill. And they didnt even play all that much.

When Venus and Serena accomplish its amazing. They do stuff so easily others can do, but take forever you can say.

Hell look at kim, she just got to number 1, playing hella tournies. She has been in 1 slam final, 2 semis. And Semis everwhere else. That is 14 tournies. She finally has gotten to number 1. Had Serena not been injured, she could've gotten to number 1 even quicker than what she did.

Yeah, that´s got to be the fastest climb from no. 9 to no.1! Damn... and no cheap shots! By beating everybody!! At the Nasdaq Serena beat Hingis, Venus and Jen( no.3, no.2, no.1) back to back to back! Damn!!

obviously there were other factors involved in martina's retirement. but even she acknowledged that they took the game to a new level, so she fuels the fire in some ways
