Serena Williams vs Venus Williams: Who is better?



Although Venus Williams is a legend of the sport and way ahead of the majority of players that have ever played the sport, Serena Williams has set the bar too high for anyone to reach her. With 23 crowns, the younger sister has won more Grand Slam titles in the Open Era than anyone else. In a league of her own, Serena’s numbers speak for themselves. Both athletes came in the mid-1990s and changed the way of playing tennis as they introduced an aggressive style to the world.
