Venus Takes Washington Kastles to 32-0 in epic 20-19 WTT Finals Win!!! MVPnus!!!!!




Let's forget the shitty US event that Venus played in where she already won both events she competed in this year. Been there, done that. Now let's win the King Trophy!

Was a part of the winning team in 2006 and 2011, BUT did not compete in the Finals. 2012 will mark her first time.

God I love that trophy.

Dear lord, Venus lost to FALCONI 0-5? Was she taking a nap during that match?

I don't, but I need to take my mind off the US Open. Plus it's in good fun, Vee enjoys it and IS playing it. It's my desire for Vee to have fun but win a trophy that has singles in it....so kind of a singles win Baby steps to getting that first singles title since 2010 Acapulco.

I am hoping Venus can win a MM this fall and maybe get a WC to the MM YEC. Mine as well get a few titles to rack up the count.

Re: Venus To Take Washington Kastles to 32-0 in the WTT Finals!

Ughhh i HATE WTT!!! Why cant Venus do something more productive like playing Seoul and getting her ranking up instead of playing this for the 2nd time in 2 months.

Venus needs a title win and the fall is her best opportunity yet, she should play more than 2 tournaments but of course WTT is always more important than health and ranking points.. wtf am I thinking??..

Re: Venus To Take Washington Kastles to 32-0 in the WTT Finals!

^That's what Luxembourg is for. And Ivanovic can't take the Sofia WC, so a WC is still open for Vee there too if she wants it. She still has chances to win Singles titles this season, but it is a matter of if she even wants to bother during the fall. Which I mean she should seeing as she needs to make a push to get an Aussie seeding.

And also, I am sure the owner of the Kastles will be giving Venus a big pay day if she can bring home the title. On top of the money WTT gives for winning.

Venus does what Venus does. She plays Hong Kong because she likes the city. She plays WTT out of homage to BJK and loving the team atmosphere. And the money probably doesn't hurt her playing either event as well.

Why can't Ana take the Sofia WC? Does the WTA realize that's her only chance for titles anymore?

I would love for Venus to play there. Only chance I'd actually watch that crapfest tournie.

Re: Venus To Take Washington Kastles to 32-0 in the WTT Finals!

Venus is playing World Team Tennis again?


Seriously, though, I actually think WTT is a great event. It gives people the opportunity to see different players you'd probably never ever see on the same court, the players obviously enjoy it and it's actually really fun to watch once you get a hang of the scoring system. And considering that she's been playing it since, what, the 90s? I'm like, go 'head Venus, do yo thang on that slightly faded multicolor court

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