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

Oh, come on Veelievers!

I know we all want her to come back as soon as possible, specially at Kuala Lumpur because she would have gotten some needed practice against opponents that she should be able to defeat. Nevertheless, let's be honest. Why would we want her to go all over there and then come back to Miami just because of match practice? If I were her, I would stay training in Miami as much as I could in order to get used to the court's conditions. She is capable of pulling a comeback in Miami, and we all know that because even without match practice she has still won her first rounds.

We can all start worrying IF she doesn't play Miami, but until then let's just pray and hope she keeps herself together. Why would you let those haters in GM play with your mind? You should all remember that she won Grand Slams with Sjögren. I keep remembering her match against Justine in 2007 and she still put on a fight even with those inhalers for something that she didn't even have. More recently, she reached the semifinal of the US Open so let's just keep being positive.

Finally, I think that all Veelievers know how tenacious she is so I don't expect her to just retire because she just wants to give up. If she does, it will be after a very long fight against it. Just don't underestimate Venus and her fighting spirit.

Beginning of the end my freaking ass, keep your mouth shut until it is sure that it will happen.

Great post!

We'll get official word one way or the other likely by tomorrow.

People can be heartless and cruel, especially when it doesn't involve them or someone they care about. Don't bother with the immaturity and outright stupidity in GM, some of those people wouldn't care if a player they disliked was bleeding right there in front of them.

She will play when she thinks she can. She has lost the excess weight she had gained the last 2 years and now it's about her regaining her strength and stamina. I will be happy whenever she is back on the court and even more so when she finally trusts her body to do what she wants it to do.

Proud Blackjack!

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

If anything I sincerely hope that she is able to qualify for the Olympics. I'm not knowledgeable of all the rules/protocols/stipulations; thus I'm not sure how many points she'll need to be able to play singles in London- or in other words, realistically, when she needs to start playing by..?

I think it would be a shame for her to miss out on something that only comes by every four years, at Wimbledon of all places. But IF it turns out that she can't play (for whatever reason), then it is what it is- no one to blame, just an unfortunate circumstance that I'm sure we'll all get over.

DON'T WAVE YOUR HAND AT ME GURLLL!

VENUS WILLIAMS: I'm not sure what my plans are. Honestly, I'm going to play next week in terms of going home and start training, really try to hone in on my singles game, see how I'm covering the court, that kind of thing.
For me it's kind of week by week, just see what happens. I try not to put pressure on myself, even though I do. I mean, if I could, I would have played last week. But as soon as I can.

Q. Venus, you're talking about coming back as soon as you can. Is it a lack of energy? What symptoms are you still fighting?
VENUS WILLIAMS: I'm still fighting fatigue. I'm getting better. I mean, it just takes a while to kind of find the right medicines that work, to get stronger. Once you do have a chance to get on the court, it takes at least six weeks to build a nice baseline so you just don't get hurt.
The big push for me is the Olympics this year, so I can get back on the court and get my ranking up. If I'm healthy, I'm not worried about my ranking. I think I can hit the ball. It's just about my body cooperating. It's about being able to play matches in a row. Right now I'm not sure how much I can do with that, but we'll see.

Q. But you feel that medicines can make the energy come back a hundred percent?
VENUS WILLIAMS: I mean, some of them take six months to set in, then you just have to find what works best, similar to a lot of stuff. It's definitely, you know, a real‑life experience for sure. My life is going to be different, but I'm glad to know what's wrong with me so I can get better. That's just like what it's about.

Q. Venus, I was looking through previous Fed Cup appearances of yours. Last time you were in it, you had a similar hairstyle.
VENUS WILLIAMS: My hair is actually not short, it's just extremely curly. It's really long. It's like a little slinky.
I don't know, sometimes I change it up. It's interesting. I wore it like this at the Olympics, Fed Cup.

Q. Is it more patriotic hair?
VENUS WILLIAMS: I'm not sure what it is. I literally shake it in the morning and wherever it lands I just go. It's the shake‑and‑go.

It's very hard for us, her fans, but I can't imagine how hard is for her. But Venus is strong and we're strong!

Btw V looks great in that black dress, but her eyes look a lil tired.
