Venus is on

Please Vee, we need a recovery here. Keep the Williams flag flying and win this match , preferably in 2 sets but if it requires 3 go for it.

Anyone else having pains already?

Re: Venus is on

What's is that big bandage on Vee's leg. Great, that's all we need now.

Re: Venus is on

doesn't look like its gonna happen for Venus today. Serbia vs USA looks like its going to be 2-0. Venus didn't seem to be walking right with that wrap.

Yup...she's not walking right. Advantage Ana.

Re: Venus is on

That's putting it mild and I am not ashame to admit it. Whenever Vee plays I am a nervous wreck, she is so unpredictable.

Re: Venus is on

Venus should be able to find a way to win this match.
If Ana and Venus are moving at the same rate, then Venus still has a better all court game and has been in this situation enough to know what she has to do.

So calm down.

Re: Venus is on

Serena's not there watching either.
Venus should have the mental edge,but who knows.

Okay, I am taking deep breathes. I have a funny feeling we will be fine today. Those of you watching on t.v. is ther eany sign of Serena or has she left for home? I am watching on the net and the camera is not roaming into the crowd.

Re: Venus is on

Does Ana want to win this? She can't even hold serve vs a not 100% Venus?
