Then later on they will play doubles. Vee/Flipkens vs Clijsters/Mauresmo according to the news...
That doubles match is such a joke

This. But of course she's gonna tank and lose another match to that thing. Hopefully her fat appearance fee will be worth the shame.

Also still bitter about the Diamond Racket she should have won in 05.

At least Mauresmo will be there, hope she takes it out on her too

Btw, can we vote more than once??? I mean, in the ATP Fans favorite award we had to put our email so everyone (or every email at least) can only vote once. But here, it seems that we can cast the votes as many as we can??

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

This is dumb if she ends up doing it.

I can't imagine her playing AO,Paris,Doha and Dubai in the space of like a month, and if theres a choice to be had between Paris r the Middle East then she should really pick the later considering her success there and the points on offer.

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

I don't think she will (or should) play all AO - Paris - Doha - Dubai, that is kinda too much! This means probably she is skipping the Middle-Eastern tournaments. Or maybe she will just play either Doha or Dubai, but not both.

But wouldn't it be possible that she is also planning on playing Fed Cup? The US tie is going to be in Italy, right? So while having to go to Europe anyway, she plays one tournament here, and that being Paris indoor?? Even though the Fed Cup tie will be on indoor clay??

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

Thinking about it, might not be so bad so long as she plays one of the middle eastern events and doesn't skip it altogether.

Paris is a premier, indoors on one of the fastest hardcourts still so could be a good chance of a title.
Then Doha is the premier 5 so offers the most ranking points, but Dubai is so quick and suits her game so well plus she seems to enjoy that tournament a lot.

AO-Paris-Dubai would be a good schedule imo.

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

I wonder if she did that to stay close to Italy for the Fed Cup tie the following weekend (which I doubt she did)....otherwise why is she bothering with that event

Focus on Doha and Dubai, dear, you like those events. I'm not that upset though because as I have said I want Vee to win a premier title and the more premier events she enters the better her chances of winning one. Plus I would think Paris would have a bad entry list considering it is right after the Aussie.

AO-Paris-Doha-Miami will be perfect! She can play in Brazil too, but it would be too much. However, I would like to see her winning WTA Brasil Tennis International then playing in Charleston!

But that would be a lot of travelling for Vee

I'm happy she chose Paris, hope she does play. I will just be happy to see her play, and hopefully get another indoor title

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

Venus was the answer (well, question) on Jeopardy last night. The answer was something like: she won Wimbledon titles in 2001, 2002, 2005, 2007, and 2008. It was one of the easy questions and was properly answered.

Just nice to see that nontennis people still remember Vee.
