Re: Queen Venus' chat thread: Volume 2 :D

I can't believe we are reliving the Pironkova part II match at Wimbledon

Anyway I remember being so nervous after her 3rd round match, and that weekend before the 4th round, it was all I could think about.
I watched Serena Bartolli and I was sad, I didn't watch Vee, I couldn't take another breakdown

I still cannot believe that Pironkova's record against Venus is 3 - 0

Re: Queen Venus' chat thread: Volume 2 :D

That match pissed me off so much. I wasn't too upset about Serena's loss because of how hard she fought at the end, but then Venus came and TOTALLY ruined my day. She was just so lifeless and I thought that she wasn't even trying. It stung even more too because of how she was talking herself up beforehand, saying that she'd definitely compete better than she did in the 2010 loss. She ended up doing the opposite, and I was just so insulted. 2 months later it all made sense though. She WAS trying... her body just wasn't cooperating.

Ugh I cannot wait for Venus to smoke her next time they play. I want Ebony Starr to come out and give Tsveti the MJMS-treatment.

That is sweet music to my ears. Is it a shame to want that as much as I want Venus to win another slam?

You shouldn't believe it because it isn't. It is 3-1.

Re: Queen Venus' chat thread: Volume 2 :D

I don't know whats the fuss over the Pironkova scores. Venus at one point was 1-3 against Flavia and ended up kinda turning it around evenly the score in 2009 (before their last encounter in Cincinatti) so yeah, I want Venus to play Pironkova.

I guess that all the WOWZAR and noes comes from the fact that 2 of those 3 Pironkova wins happened in Wimbledon

The only thing that "scares" me about this matchup is the fact that Venus was very tight on their last encounter, Venuus' body language was not giving me good vibes, She was not looking for blood but i hope that that's all due to the fact that she was only getting back from injury and was probably questioning her own form.

Re: Queen Venus' chat thread: Volume 2 :D

The Australian Open tournament director seems very confident that Vee will be in Australia. There's an article about it on Eurosport. I hope he is right!

Re: Queen Venus' chat thread: Volume 2 :D

Venus I jut want her to start snatching some wigs. I wanna see her play tennis like the 10 Dubai final.

Edit: whoops!! I thought that her Dubai final was farther away then it really was.

Oh you mean the one contested between Dementieva and Kuznetsova?

As for Pironkova, let that little skank (though I like her) have those 3 wins because she ain't doing shit in her career. And for me 2010 hurt more than 2011. 2010 she was coming in on good form and looking good to take the title. 2011 Venus would not have won the title and was coming in off rusty form. The 2011 encounter we weren't even sure if Venus was healthy because the round before she was holding her hip and had her thigh taped up. Venus was feeling more effects and fatigue of her disease at this point.

Re: Queen Venus' chat thread: Volume 2 :D

Guys will Venus be ready for Australian Open? I mean she pulled out of Auckland saying she won't be ready by then but will she be ready for AO the following week which will be grueling and we won't know where she will land in the draw, my question is, will she be ready to jump straight back to grand slam level competition?

And will she be given a wild card?

Re: Queen Venus' chat thread: Volume 2 :D

There's a week between the two tournaments.

I guess she's gonna wing it. It's almost like this year, until the unlikely injury against Zahlavova.

go in on heavy practice and not much match play...if anyone can do that it's a Williams sister.

She does not need a Wild Card yet, 108 get in directly and Venus is 104. Events after Melbourne she will though unless she does some big damage.

And like dynamo said, she'll just do what she did this year.

Hopefully without the re-injuring herself, I pray for a seed she will beat early on.
