Venus Rising! 2016 Aussie Open Thread - Through The Years

It's 2016 and this is could be the final year for Venus on tour, being an Olympic year and all, so I thought I could compile images of Venus Down Under through the years.

Things may not have gone well in New Zealand, but we are hopeful Venus will rise up like a phoenix as she has been renowned to do and surprise us all

So come on Veelievers, let's cheer for our girl

Wow never heard of a team given a wildcard and seeded (1)

Well they weren't seeded #1 by ranking, the Aussie directors did that themselves because they saw fit to do so. And they proved them right as they then went to complete the Career Golden Slam 2 weeks later.

And 2001...she looked so good that event. Peek-a-boob will forever remain one of the best Vee outfits. But good lord was she burnt out from that amazing 2000 Getting through her singles matches on confidence alone. Same for doubles, the quality of that doubles final was awful. Lindsay and Venus were stinking up the court pretty much.

I've never seen the match but what was Veesus doing in that 2001 match against Hingis?

Missing everything. 2001 was not a good year. She didn't really play well for me until summer hardcourts. The whole year was patchy.
