Re: Queenus Slays on Greenus Clays: Charleston 2017

She played so well in 2004 I watched that final against Conchita , she just went on a clay tear that year, her best chance to win Roland Garros based on form.
Was skeptical about her playing this year, after her injuries but honestly I'm glad she is playing has a chance to gain more points. Plus resting is not really that great an idea because bitch is always injured in some form

Less matches required to snag this title than IW & Miami right? Hopefully that works out to be a good thing.

Her 04 Clay era was so

Re: Queenus Slays on Greenus Clays: Charleston 2017

Then Myskina at the French happened. I will never get over that mess.

My expectations are pretty tempered compared to IW/Miami. Hope she can grab some nice ranking points.

Re: Queenus Slays on Greenus Clays: Charleston 2017

Wasn't Venus on like a 16 match winning streak going into the Fench that year...

She won Charleston, another tournament on Red Clay, then got to the Finals of Warsaw before giving Mauresmo a walkover after twisting her ankle in that epic match against Sprem in the SF....Then she whooped everybody until that cold rainy day in Paris (after watching Serena lose to Capriati)

Venus needs the weather on her side in Paris.....warm dry conditions and she has a shot...last year it was literally the cold damp day where she played like blah

Re: Queenus Slays on Greenus Clays: Charleston 2017

Why are you guys always dwelling on the past? It's 2017 and Venus is making F-QF-SF in back to back tournaments (Y'all know St Petersburg was pure BS because of her commitment to the tournament). This is the year where Venus wins her 8th Slam.

Hapless, that AVI sis...

Re: Queenus Slays on Greenus Clays: Charleston 2017

Hapless is always so messy with her avi and signatures. But I think that is why we love her?

Do we know when she plays? I adore this tournament so I hope she snatches it.

That's the time when play begins. It's unlikely that she'll be the first match scheduled.

Re: Queenus Slays on Greenus Clays: Charleston 2017

Queenus is 3rd up on the stadium so that means approx. 2PM eastern time if the two prior ones go two hours each. No Not Before times til 7.

Charleston doesn't do night matches do they? I can't remember.

Yeah, they have 1 singles match every Tuesday-Friday night.

The night sessions used to suck because ESPN had tv coverage (usually the match at ~1pm EST) from R16 onward and always requested the marquee match. Venus has only played twice at night in the past decade and both were R32 matches -- Jankovic & Puig.

The night sessions should be better this year though. Tennis Channel has full tv coverage of this tournament now and they're showing all of the day + night matches. Should give the tournament organizers some more flexibility with the schedule.
