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

too bad Venus had to withdrew from the Australian Open. I mean i really miss her out on the court, but i understand it. I will always support her, no matter what. I'm sure she will not come back until she is 100% sure she's ready to go and that makes sense. I would hate it to see her rushing her comeback and then will not be able to play for a long time again. I rather wait and see her fully ready to go, then seeing Venus go down again.

Go Venus!

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

@Uranium: If 2011 was like 2006, then 2012 must be like 2007 which means Wimbledon No. 6! If I were Venus, I would just play Tier-1s, Tier 2-s, and one International like Kuala Lumpur to get match practice. I mean seriously, I think that she is definitely going to get her ranking high enough. Until at least the quarterfinals, there won't be any challenging opponents. Yes it will be rusty, but unlesss she goes in Veeror mode, then I don't think she will lose early. @ your good rep!

@Everyone: I know that this decision was very hard, but we must accept this instead of risking her health and injuring herself once again. It's like when you sacrifice your Queen to save your King and ultimately win the game. I know she will give her EVERYTHING in Wimbledon and the Olympics, and we must make sure that she knows we totally support her.

Go big or go home

What do you do for cardio?

I think 1 handed backhands are actually the best for amateur players
There's always club tournies every weekend, but the bigger provincials are about once a month, there's a lot more for juniors though which sucks
Well cardio, I mainly jog and work on sit ups and a lot of core excercises. I also started footwork drills on the court. I need to get more work outs tips online though.

I haven't really decided yet. I am hoping to join a ladies team in the spring but I may breakdown and play a tournament before then if I feel ready enough. I want to make sure the winter rust is knocked off good 1st. One concern though is that playing on a all ladies team I know i will have to play those players who do not have a lot of power and I honestly hate that because it throws my rhythm off sometimes. I actually prefer to hit with guys.

Why don't you play the club tournaments? The provincials sound scary

I've decided to cross-train with soccer because the whole jogging thing is not for me

I played soccer with my lil nephew (he's 4) over the holidays it was soooo much fun. We played a game with some other kids, I was the goalie an my job was basically to yell my teammates for their poor defense every time the other team scored

its tough i know but years ago when I was "Peak Brenda" I found that playing with people of different levels was a good way of gauging how good my footwork and my ability to adjust was cuz when you play a match your opponent isnt going to be trying to hit the ball at the pace and height you want them to hit...

Is there any creature on earth as unfortunate as an ugly woman?

^Nah, I will be like The Williams girls, I will jump straight into the BIG time with little preparation. Lol, I will play that guys in my club till I beat them then I will play the provincial tournies, they have qualies so I don't mind if I lose there, it will access my level.

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

So with Venus out who are we rooting for?

I wouldn't mind Serena, Schiavone, or Kutzensova.

And btw my coach said I must play a one-handed backhand, he says it's the best stroke I can hit, so I guess I will be working on that.
Welcome to the henin I mean one handed back hand club

This is very true, nothing test your footwork like no pace balls. I have found that you do have to appreciate the many different styles of tennis in order to become the best you can be.
