So pretty much she's been nominated every year since 2000, and Serena has been nominated every year since 2003. Neither has ever won it though.

2000 went to Tara Tipinski
2003 went to Michelle Kwan
2004 went to Mia Hamm
2008 went to Danica Patrick
2009 went to Candace Parker
2010 went to Misty-May Treanor
2011 went to Lindsey Vonn
2012 went to Danica Patrick

Gabby Douglass will probably take it this year.
Now you are like the Uranium/AKB/special investigator of pop-culture.

Incidentally I think I voted like three of those years before I realised what's up

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

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

I know it's on wikipedia, but it says Venus has a WC to play in Bogota. Any confirmation? Can't find anything on google, so it's probably fake..

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

Hey guys, I just wanted to remind everyone to stay positive despite adversity. Here are some of Venus' quotes from the preface of her book Come to Win:


- My loss to Martina Hingis in the semifinals at the 1999 U.S. Open later benefited me in the way Mersereau notes (someone she quoted before this). In that match, I had a lot of opportunities. Hingis was very good, but I believed I was the better player. Yet I didn't win, which was upsetting. I thought, from now on I'm going to do whatever it takes to win. (Well, not whatever it takes - certainly not cheating) unlike Justine). So going forward, if a ball lands short and I can get to the ball and come to the net, I'm going to get there. I'm not going to sit back and hit the short ball and be scared on the baseline. If the court is open, I'm going to take my shot. I'm not going to miss it. From that loss, my mind'set changed.

- When I played Wimbledon that year (2000), I was the most determined in the draw. That was my tournament and no one else's.

- Nothing in my interior design business, no matter how much I love design, compares to something like holding the Venus Rosewater Dish.

- And, boy, do I love to win; everything is right in the world when I do. I go to tournaments with that goal in mind. From my perspective, you learn a lot from winning and putting yourself in a position to win. There have been times when I've woken up after Wimbledon thinking, "Ah-ha, I'm the Wimbledon champ." There's a complete feeling of satisfaction.


I really hope she remembers this now that she knows she has sjogren's syndrome. This is the mentality woman, you can do it once again.

Go big or go home

So many nice quotes. I hope Serena's success also inspires Vee. I reckon i could make a lil pocketbook full of Vee's eloquent quotes.

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

Hey! Is anyone else planning on attending the Sony Tennis Open in a couple of weeks? I'm really really excited to see all of my favorites play life for the first time (instead of just on TV). I got a great deal on the tickets for my friends and I at http://www.ticketsofamerica.com if anyone still needs any! If anyone else is planning on being there- maybe we can all grab a drink or something!
