Venus Williams win/loss records are:
1999: 55:12
2000: 41:4
2001: 46:5
2002: 41:6

Venus was handed her defeats in that year predominantly by Graf, Hingis
and Davenport. She was 1:2 vs. Graf, 2:3 vs. Davenport and 2:3 vs.
Hingis in 1999. Graf retired in 1999, Hingis and Davenport started
their long slump/decline that year. Hingis didn't win a Slam after FO
99, Davenport not after AO 00. Of course Venus suddenly had better
results against both.
If we exclude Venus matches vs. Graf, Hingis and Davenport from Venus'
win/loss record, we get
1999: 50:4 (92,6 %)
2000: 36:3 (92,3 %)
2001: 42:4 (91,3 %)
2002: 40:6 (87,0 %)

Actually, a steady decline - if it weren't for Graf, Davenport and Hingis.
Go figure ...
