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

^Hope you have fun the day you go. What day are you going?

I can't believe Melbourne is in less than 11 days. (The bounce is only for Venus playing because if she withdraws then I will have no desire to watch it at all). And the Aussie is always the best when it comes to practice pictures leading into the event of the big names. Can't wait to see the first glimpses of the 2012 Australian Open Champion, Venus Ebony Starr Williams

I'm heading there Sunday week (I think it's the 15th of Jan?) and will be there until the following weekend. So I will be there for all the matches during the first week.

I have been preparing myself for V to withdraw, I won't mind if she does just because of what she is going through at the moment, but I still really want to see her play live again! I still don't think that I have recovered fully from watching that Zahalova match live last year

If she does come down, I will def try to get photos/videos of her practicing out the back. Have managed to catch her every time I have I been so far, got her sig there in 2008 as well

^Oh fun, a full week, so you'll definitely see Venus if she plays. I remember when you told us that; you were wearing EleVen and she was curious about it being in Australia My wonderful useless memory

Hahaha I forgot about that! I think that was also in 2008 when she was playing Camille Pin on Hisense Arena. I was in the front row and she looked over and then took a double take I think someone in the player box must have noticed as well because I saw Serena and Sascha peering over the wall in my direction too!

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

Are there any news of whether Venus will be playing AO? When is she coming to Australia?

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

^Surely we'll hear something in the next 2 days. Anyways, I was just remembering the rude ass crowd booing Venus last year. Venus needs to teach them a lesson and not boo the Queen. Double Bagel an Aussie and win the Singles Title (can't just say title because lord knows she'll bring home yet another doubles one, we need to be specific), Vee

Venus and the Daphne Akhurst Memorial Cup to finally unite

Venus is not playing Doubles at the Australian Open and she couldn't anyway as Serena is playing Mixed Doubles as well as Singles.

Oh yes, that crowd was sooo retarded It was simply disrespectful when they booed her because she couldn't go on in the third round against Petkovic. Also, in the previous round against Zahlavova I remember right after she had won the announcer said something like: 'Ladies and gentleman, we congratulate Venus Williams' and there was minimal applause. Then he continued: 'Also, please show your appreciation for Sandra Zahlavova' and the crowd went nuts as if she had won the Australian Open

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

Venus was spotted here in the US last night, so she hasn't left yet. If she's not in Australia by Monday, then I think it'll be safe to say.....

Not that I expected her to be there by now though anyway. Serena probably planned on arriving in Melbourne this Sunday (expecting to make it deep in Brisbane ) so I imagine that Venus hopefully probably booked a flight to arrive at a similar time.

I think Wimbledon may be the only crowd to never disrespect Venus as far as the majors go. Last year was really weird, the Australian crowd is usually very fair, but it seems they really have some twats in there over the past few years.

Who told you this? Knowing Vee, I really think she will try to play her first match and then make a decision. She really hates missing majors, so I think she will just wing it.

What is everyone's favorite Vee match from Down Under? I know she has had TREMENDOUS heartbreaks, but she has had some golden flashes.
