Is Venus injured?

Camile is playing good, but Venus is so slow

Re: Is Venus injured?

Venus is just playing way too sluggish. I think she is fine. It's just one of those days.

"There's a different sense of pride that overcomes us when it comes to watching those girls play," he preached. "Yeah, we support 'em because they us, but our love is unconditional with them because they came up with nothin'. We understand that more than any other race in this country. Their careers are a microcosm of our existence in America, a reminder. That's why every time they touch that court it's a big deal with us. They are America's reminder of our struggle and our reminder of our triumph."

-Scoop Jackson's (of ESPN) uncle Steve on Venus and Serena

Re: Is Venus injured?

Yeah, I'm leaning to more of Venus being patient and putting more pressure on her opponents as the week continues. Hopefully I'm right...

Re: Is Venus injured?

After watching the match I have a nagging thought that Venus is suffering from some type of injury, be it the illness that hindered her at the Us Open or from a lingering hamstring injury suffered during the Hong kong tourney. I pray that I'm wrong but I feel she has an injury and is just keeping it to herself, like always.
Hopefully, it's just a bad start a la last year's Wimbledon and she can find her best game for the next and later rounds.

Re: Is Venus injured?

As is turns out my thoughts about Venus were spot on. From the first match of the Aussie open I knew she was injured. A key part of Venus' game depends on her movement. If she is not moving well, the quarterfinal performance is the result. The statistics alone should be a red flag (only 4 ground strokes winners) I mean come on! Anyone looking at the stats alone should know something was up with her. Like I said I had the feeling from day one.
On the bright side though, Venus took the lost well and I would be crazy to take it harder than her. She seems to be in a good place. If the Lord wills, this will only be a slight speed bump for Venus, in what I pray will be a very Slamtastic year!
Heres to Venus' recovery and hopefully the remaining year will be full of good health, happiness, and dreams fulfilled.
