Is Womens Tennis Back To The State It Was A Few Years Ago?

The Williams sisters are back to tennis back on the top of the world. Venus won the Womens Singles Final and of course played her sister in the final. Additionally, both sisters teamed up to win the doubles final. This brings be back to the same old debate, where is the state of womens tennis? Currently, with the Williams sisters not focusing on tennis that much in the past few years, it reallys makes me wonder that the states of womens tennis is back in a poor state. I realise that there are a lot more players on higher rankings than the sisters, but in this case I dont think rankings have a relevance at all. Can someone progress the level of womens tennis to match them? Will Justine Henin realise that she retired in too much of a haste? Who can really challenger them and who can become so dominant in the womens games, as much as Roger Federer and Nadal are in the mens game?

So because Venus and Serena are in the final, the women’s game is weak?

But it wasn’t weak at the French?

It isnt just the fact that they are in the final. Its the fact that they arent playing that much any more yet they can still just dominate the game. While all the other pros are giving it everything all the time, but are still losing to them.

I think that in time if the sisters continue to be healthy and play as many tournaments, they’ll soon be the top 1 and 2 players in the world. It’s a good thing that Serena’s back at the top though will be losing it monday. She should play more since no one can match hers and sisters prowess except of course maria w/c is now sidelined by her shoulder injury..I hope that Venus can win stuttgart and serena in moscow and the YEC to snatch the top rankings again…Bet that they’ll go swinging in the GS next year…I can see that they really mean business right now with the way that they’re playing against each other and entering a lot of tournaments which are very uncommon to the sisters..
