This discussion will have an end when Venus wins the Aussies and gets back the equivalent ranking to her potential!

As far as I am concern Vee has nothing to prove to anyone. She has done it all before and she will do it again. She is determine to take this trophy home.

BULLSHIT!

No bias against V&S!
Funny how the rules supposedly don't apply and people bitch, yet Lindsay gets the same treatment when she was injured and nothing was said!

Another sportswriter who knows nothing
and looks like a horses ass!

An absolutly natural instinct to speak more about the better players!

I was just thinking the same thing.

Imagine if Venus had been seeded at number 9 (which would have been her seed due to Serena's and Jennifer withdrawls) and then met one of the higher seeded players in the quarterfinals and beat them. Then the sportswriters would have complained that the special seeding should have been awarded to Venus. The sisters can't catch a break no matter what they do or don't do.

There are people being payed for seeking everything V&S could do wrong!

This guy seems to be complimenting Venus by saying that because she is such a great player, she actually deserves to be seeded highly. Then he claims that she is receiving special treatment. So if he thinks she is a such a great player who can live up to her seeding, then what the hell is he bitching about?

It doesn´t matter.....no matter where Venus was seeded, it´d still have picked her over Momo, Lindsay and all those lower seeds ANY day.

And the two top seeds, know that they got their work cut-out for them when facing Venus no matter where she´s ranked/seeded.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?
