(12) Varvara Lepchenko vs. Christina McHale
Melinda Czink vs. Mathilde Johansson
Monica Puig vs. Andrea Hlavackova
(5) Venus def. Bye

Even with a back injury she should make QFs to give us the match with Sloane that we wanted.

I want that picture

Venus from last year's Family Circle Cup post-Stosur-match interview:
Quote:
Q: I thought somebody was saying
something to you.
VENUS WILLIAMS: No. I barely keep the
score in the match, so I don't remember stuff that
happens.


I hope she can make it at least as far this year. Come on, Vee!

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

I've got it, but not sure where I can upload it??

I thought that it was really good There is a lot more Serena stuff in there, but it's still pretty awesome. A good insight into their lives!

I have never given up and it's important for me to prove to myself that I can do this, and to prove to me that i'm a champion.
If I were just to sit down, lay down and give in, then I wouldn't have any respect for myself."

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

I watched it weekend before last. it was great. I felt that it could have and should have been longer. Seeing Venus tear up when they asked her about Yetunde made me tear up. It was so great of them to do this. Richard was so protective of them when they were younger when it came to the media. There's a part where Venus was being interviewed and she was 14 and Richard handled the interviewer lol. I don't remember the specifics but I remember thinking what the interviewer was asking seemed harmless, but Richard thought otherwise and I remember seeing his point.
They were really phenoms! Something that hasn't been seen since probably Pova (she got attention but I don't think she was as much a phenom as the Sisters, or Hingis and Capriati).
Also remember Rick Macci being bitter about not getting the recognition he thinks he deserves for helping the sisters develop their strokes and all that. That really wasn't directly said but it was hinted at.
Oracene is
Serena is a drama queen!
Venus said she isn't a perfectionist, but obsessive. She really didn't want to pull out of the USO in 2011.
Nice to see Sascha in the doc, was hoping to see David Witt, but nope. I would have liked to see Venus and David's relationship. Serena and Sascha seem like friends.


I watched it on Xbox Video if any of you have Microsoft products lol.

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

Am i right in thinking that Venus is still expected to play the Fed Cup tie this weekend?

If so, how do you see MJF splitting the workload. Serena and who for the singles?

I don't know much about Fed Cup actually, so could Venus and Serena play the singles and the doubles, and everyone else sit out or have the doubles competitors got to be different to the singles???

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

weird to see articles saying Venus and Serena/The Williams Sisters to lead Fed Cup Team when Sloane is ranked higher than Venus. I think Mary Jo will be thoughtful of that and give Slaone a singles match. Maybe it can help her build some confidence. Venus probably wouldn't mind playing doubles only anyway, and MJ might have her play with Lepchenko. Very interested to see how MJ plans to assign her players.

^^^ Queen Vee 92, V&S could certainly play all the matches, at most three to take the tie. But I don't think MJ would sit out Lepchenko and Sloane since US looks good for win, and they could get some time on court.

I agree with this. I'd rather Venus not expend too much energy on fed cup. To be honest I think Sloan needs it more than anybody.
