Venus = A class act.

No excuses. Did not even metion the ankle.

She showed up even with lack of match play, and just did the best with what she had.

Tried her best.

Complimented Lisa.

Optimistic for future.

Others could learn from her on the tour.

I think Venus and her mother always exhibit class, in victory and defeat. Yesterday was another prime example. ...and one for mom.

good job Venus. Nice to see that at least 1 of the Williams sisters knows how to lose.

I think that Venus played ok, Lisa played great. I am not a fan of Venus but am not gonna bash her after having tried so hard after injury. I wish her all the best and would like to add that the Aus open was a better/more fun place because a Williams was there.

Yes, she is!

I was impressed how she handled the questions, when journalist tried to make her give an exuse! She avoided it beautifully!
I had an impression they wanted her to say something like I have an ankle injury, that why i lost!
