Reasons why Venus Williams lost to sister Serena at the US Open

Serena Williams reached the semifinals on Wednesday with a tough 7-6 (8-6), 7-6 (9-7) victory over older sister Venus Williams.

The reasons for Venus' lost could be fatigue and lack of sleep.

Oh gosh, Venus, you really need some sleep.

Earlier this week, Venus Williams was seen with her hitting partner and her boyfriend,
pseudo-golfer Hank Kuehne during court practice.

Serena Williams too has her faithful manservant Common, the rapper and her boyfriend
at the court practice.

So, is Serena Williams going to win at this Grand Slam?

Statistics wise, Serena has the extra edge over
the other 3 semifinalists Jelena Jankovic, Elena Dementieva and Dinara Safina. Serena not only has won the U.S. Open but a total of eight Grand Slam singles titles. The others never have won one.

My pick? I would say Dementieva for she deserves a Grand Slam after a magnificent run since winning the gold medal at the Beijing Olympics. She has been working very hard all these years (turned pro in 1998). Perhaps recent glory moments will delay her retirement a bit.
