Flying Forehands in Flushing - The Open 2012 - Path to Slam #8

US Open 2012 - Queen dazzles under the lights at Arthur Ashe Stadium



And her forehand sizzles as she jumps her way to a 3rd US Open and 8th grand slam singles title.


Queen and the trophy

Lets go Vee!!

"I want to do things on my own terms, I can't have anything take me out.
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."

Yes!



That's what I came for. Hope you are our lucky charm once again, vw! Please, let this one be her 8th Slam! I feel like this is her best shot unless her back has some serious problem. If not, Australian Open 2013 here we finally freaking come for you.

Re: Flying Forehands in Flushing - The Open 2012 - Path to Slam #8

hopefully those forehands aren't flying out

I can't wait to see the tennis she produces. I would also favor a kind draw, the tennis gods better get on their job!!

The Effing Venus Williams!!!

It was merely referring to her flying through the air as she slaps winners on Arthur Ashe Stadium I always think of her 1st round match on 07 against Nagy where she got so much air on all her shots, esp this one backhand where she's literally feet off the floor!
