Special "Venus" moments
I think that in addition to being the awesome Queen of tennis that she is, Miss Venus is also very funny--even on court sometimes. Here are, in no particular order, some of my "favorite" Venus funny moments. Please share yours:
I. USOpen--Venus vs. Tauziat- Venus misses her chair and laughs her ass off.
II. Bausch&Lomb--Venus vs. Henin- in the third set, Venus is stretched out wide on the backhand side and hits a one hander, not once but twice. The second time she ends up losing her racquet and kind of falls down but then hesitates about picking it up and trying to get back into the point. In the end she picks it up and gives a little clapping motion and a little dance (you know, will I or won't I) before she smiles.
III. Ericsson-- Venus vs. Capriati- during one of those 8 match points, Venus sprays a ball after a long rally and while going back to the baseline to receive serve, does a little "hippy" shake it off move and smiles.
IV. USOpen--Venus vs. Spirlea- game, set, match Miss Venus Williams spurs the greatest dance of sheer elation ever witnessed and when Spirlea does make it to the net for the handshake she could've been the cabbie who dropped Vee off at Flushing Meadows because she could've cared less that she was there. It wasn't a mean handshake it was just, Oh my God did you just see what I just did??? Spirlea looked like "whatever".
