      Okay thanks CNN said she won three straight over big sis so she's behind 2-1 guess that they gotten over the dislike of playing each other.

          So happy for Serena I love both the Williams sisters but I like Serena that little bit more because she seems to have that extra hunger to come back from the brink.

          If only she didn't fluff up in the QF at the French Open against Svetlana Kuznetsova, then I'm 90% sure this would be the completion of Serena Slam part two.

          And with that doubles title, I think Serena has taken her tally of Grand Slams to 22 now.

            Serena is the Mother of the Earth.

            The WTA needs to fix their ranking system. How do you win 3 of the 4 Grand Slams in a year and not be the #1 player? :?

              I hate to have to say this because I've always been a Serena fan, but she has no class. Did you see the way she mocked Dinara Safina in her press conference? She could have attacked the ranking system without attacking Safina. After all, she had nothing to do with the math behind the ranking system.

              This reminds of one of Williams' post-tournament press conferences six years ago, right after the Iraq invasion, and just before the French Open. For some reason, she felt it necessary to start mockng not only the French government, but also the French people, for their anti-war stance. It was sickening. I remember ESPN showing the clip and predicting that she would probably surpass George Bush as the American the French loved to hate most. Needless to say, the French heckled her unmercifully once play started at the French Open. By the end of the tournment, when she lost to Justin Henin, she was reduced to tears and had the nerve to wonder aloud why the crowd was so mean to her. :roll:

                I could accept Safina as the No.1 before Wimbledon but it's crazy that Serena is the world No.2 even though she has won three of the four Grand Slams. However, I guess Serena Williams is the tennis equivalent of Christine Ohuruogu and Serena doesn't really care about non-Grand Slam events.

                However, Safina is the most consistent player week-in, week-out and the ranking systems acknowledge this. In the past 12 months, Safina has reached the Australian Open, Olympic and French Open finals and the SF at Wimbledon and the US Open and this year, she won back-to-back titles in Rome (beating Venus and Kuznetsova en route) and Madrid, as well as a few titles on the US hardcourts last summer.

                On the other hand, Serena's performances in the last 12 months include four straight losses (Miami final, r1 in Marbella, r2 in Rome (r1 BYE), r1 in Madrid as well as r2 in Stuttgart (r1 BYE) and withdrawing injured from the round-robin at the YEC.

                I'd say Serena is more of a deserving No.1 but I really don't want to slag off Safina. I feel really sorry for her because she's received nothing but criticism since reaching No.1 (Clijsters and Mauresmo didn't face the same stick and Davenport finished two season's at No.1 without a GS) and I don't think Dinara is enjoying her time at No.1 even though she has worked like a trojan to get there.

                  Yes, I saw her mock Safina. My first thought was that she may be returning the favor for something Safina said. My second thought was that Serena is so frustrated with the ranking system that in making her point to bash it, Safina had to take a hit.

                  As for the French Open incident I remember it well. But I didnt know that she had made a political statement. I just thought she was being treated bad by a hostile crowd. Which isnt uncommon for the sisters throughout their careers.

                  As for lacking class, well I love Serena too but some of her outfits have long given me that impression. :P

                    Well if you've watched Safina its the WAY she's struggled when she gets near a slam title. I too have felt sorry for her because its such a highly visible position to be in.

                    I think if they fixed the ranking system she wouldnt nearly as much pressure on her.
