They should both do well. They're both playing warmup events in singles and doubles. The surface should suit them.

I think probably Serena will do better than Venus. She seemed to get more and more motivated as 2001 progressed and should now be really hungry for a GS. That said, she's likely to get a tougher draw than Venus. If she's unlucky and gets Venus, Lindsay or Jen in the QFs she might not get through.

I expect both to perform very well this year, but look for Venus to continue where she left off <img src="tongue.gif" border="0">

Close knit SisterSledgeHammer will run a SKINTIGHT, AIRTIGHT ship, and push one another to<br />the winner's circle, JUST like they did at the US Open. <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

I can't answer that question. Both sisters will perform very very well. They are the betters players on court right now.

Hmm.. and what happened at the Australian Open, Roland Garros, and Wimbledon?! Yeah, that's what I thought.

<br />Hmmmm... ALL the players in your signature GOT BEAT ON, or weren't good enough to be there to get BEAT ON... THAT'S what you thought, and THAT'S what I know. <img src="tongue.gif" border="0">

We do not give a hoot about Schett and Maleeva.. As far as I am concerned you say the girls train harder and are more dedicated.. who gives a flip.. If they are training so hard it is obviously not hard enough.. So stop bashing.. Personality matter of fact Babsi seems to crack under pressure anyway and is living a fairy tale due to the absence of Kournikova. about Venus and Serena being a disgrace to black people speak for yourself because when they play they always have the minorities glued to the tv screen.. must we use race? Black.. such a term.. Go Venus Go Serena.. All you do by trying to bring them down is put them on a higher pedastal when they suceed.. So stop being a sourpuss.. and I know many players on the tour but Venus, Serena, Alexadnra, and Lindsay is all I choose to know..

I am sure the FANS have a reason for every one of Venus' losses this year.

Maybe some of her FANS should read the Venus on clay thread, she is one of the best ever on the stuff but they use the surface as an excuse for her loss at the French Open this year.

You should make your minds up <img src="confused.gif" border="0">

Ain't that the truth!!!! Meanwhile , their advertising appeal ain't goin' nowhere as long as people like this are around . <br />Yes Barbara Schette and Maggie Maleeva have a winning record (snicker snicker) over Venus this year, but what have they done lately???? This was is irelevant if you asked me <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0"> <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">

<br />P.S. Vanity, why the need to constantly broadcast that you are black??? Are you trying to prove something?? SHEESH!!!!

First of all it is not the us against them attitude their father implies that not them. I am glad you enjoy who you enjoy.. I did not know black people had such a bourgeouis stereotype not the last time I checked. Arrogant? have you met them? Martina Hingis seems a little arrogant. others on tour also.. rude? never I have recalled them being rude they rarely even talk... temperemental i need evidence of this accusation. I know and others know what it is like.. They never bring the racism card to the table they just win matches.. From what I understand Lindsay says she knew that the things people said about the Williams' were not true they are normal tennis players... Why do you think Chanda,Zina, Laurie McNeil, Serena, Venus, and Alexandra are so close.. Because they share the same stories.. Little effort does not go back to when you are four years old.. If you are a natural you are a natural.. Everyone does not have to be on court 8 hours a day to be a champion. When Pete asked Serena was she a natural blonde at the US Open rudely do you think he was serious.. Was her her hair blonde in years past? I would be rude to.. I would have rolled my eyes just as she... Then he says rude... People want them to kiss people A** but they knew who are true to them and who are not.. You know who smiles in your face and talks about you behind your back..

What is wrong with you people. This is a thread about Venus and Serena, it is one asking you which will perform better. If you have nothing constructive to add, just get out of my hair. You are coming in here and pouring cold water all over. What is your problem? <img src="mad.gif" border="0">

We like who we like and you like who you like.. Who cares if you are white or black if your issues and your statements and accustaions or valid we will respect that.. I think they will perform equally sorry Williams_Rulez but we must support our champions..

i really don't understand why people are still arguing with vanity about this?i mean this is obviously her opinion and arguing with her is not going to do anything to change that.i respect her decision and her opinion because i know that i'm a fan of venus and serena and i know that there are millions of others that feel the same.vanity is just one person and we fans can't attack everyone who doesn't like venus ans serena just because they say something negative.Ofcourese i don,t agree with what she says but i'm not going to attack her on it because that's how she.I think everyone on this fan site is great but i find that some the Williams fans are one of the few fan groups that when one bad thing is said about them some of us lash out right away,doing this won't help the situation and it gives the person who wrote the negative comment fuel to continue to write more negative things,which is what we are trying to prevent in the first place,i know that,for me, venus and serena are the greatest right now,for me they are not arrogant or rude,they are just proud.We fans know that there are millions of other fans in the world who feel the way we do and who respect the accomplishments they have done on and off court,for us they are class acts and nothing will change that for us. <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" />

So Vanity, the issue now is that they play too little. Is that even any of your business? Are you their management? Please, just stop this. <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">
