Re: 2013 Flushing Meadows: Venus takes on the Big Apple

Is Venus even playing doubles? I thought she said she won't because of her back!

Yes I think she is playing Doubles but I think she should enter Mixed Doubles.

Re: 2013 Flushing Meadows: Venus takes on the Big Apple

Upside for Vee is that she usually play extremely well in the early rounds of the USO. She is putting a lot of pressure on herself, and I just hope she genuninely enjoys herself. Not a fan of her playing doubles not being at 100% physically. But we have to remember how she rediscovered her game during her Wimbledon doubles run last year. That led to doubles Gold, playing solid singles in the Olympics as well, having a shot at Kerber in that 2R last year , playing well in WTT, and capping the year off in Luxembourg.

Re: 2013 Flushing Meadows: Venus takes on the Big Apple

I hope Venus is somewhere practicing her serve and her return game, and her forehand. I've noticed that Venus is doing a lot of promoting her clothing line on her twitter page. I sent her a message and told her to let her employees do that and she just get on the court and practice her serve, return game and forehand. It's time for Venus do really do something about techniques of her game if she wants to be relevant in the women's game.

Re: 2013 Flushing Meadows: Venus takes on the Big Apple

@ Hingis' seething like she always did.

@Maddy & Jean: Of course I'm going to keep my faith on Venus until she retires. I have done it for all of her career, why I shouldn't do it now at the moment she needs us the most? It couldn't have been 17 years of winning ALL the time.

I am ready for the US Open!

I agree. She hardly ever used to tweet in the past. If she puts as much energy in her game as she does promoting Eleven, she might make later rounds at tournaments and slams.

Re: 2013 Flushing Meadows: Venus takes on the Big Apple

She doesn't promote EleVen a lot on her own account. Most of it is done using the official eleven by Venus account which we can safely assume she isn't personally tweeting from.

I believe she's trying hard. It's just not coming together quickly or easily. She smashed her racket, something she's hardly done ever in her career. This woman is used to winning, she's more upset about her game than any of us.

The Effing Venus Williams!!!
