Re: Vee's leg is strapped

Hopefully just a preventive measure. If she's still playing doubles this afternoon I don't think it is too much of a factor.

HOPEFULLY it's just preventive...God let it be...

I'd like to imagine that in order to beat me a person would have to play almost perfect tennis. - Venus Williams

Re: Vee's leg is strapped

Maybe its a little tight and yes...hopefully just preventive. Her mobility can't be restricted if she is going to make it through to the final.

Re: Vee's leg is strapped

Its probably just preventative. She had one strapped in the second week of Wimbledon and it obviously didn't do that much harm.

Re: Vee's leg is strapped

Justine had one on her knee also yesterday, but she moved fine.

So, it's most likely a preventive measure. Still, we have to see how she performs on court....

Re: Vee's leg is strapped

Precautionary.
In all honesty she could win this match on one good leg one arm tied behind her back with an eyepatch.

Marta and beating someone off the court don't go hand and hand.
Venus is known for her slow starts.
Even she has to take in some considerations for entertainment purposes.

Re: Vee's leg is strapped

Slow start from Venus. She better pick it up. She hasn't played one match thats really been dominating from start to finish yet. She can get it going but c'mon. She's got doubles to play later and doesn't need any unnecessary time spent on the court.

Oddly enough I think she would say the same thing about you. Imagine that.
