Is the book out on Venus?
I kept getting flashbacks of the Shaughnessy match today when I watched Raymond beat Venus. Forehand to forehand, forehand to forehand, forehand to forehand. Step to the left on the second serve so you can hit a forehand.
It's really the simplest strategy and that's how Venus is losing almost all of her matches these days. Of course Venus had players in the first two rounds that had crap forehands and good backhands, and they didn't get very far.
So is the book out on Venus? I'm sorry but she never used to get crushed by her sister, Meghan, Lisa fucking Raymond, Mauresmo, lose to Zvonareva, or be down 6-1 3-1 to Schiavone, another player with a big forehand, for example. And considering Sharapova was very recently up 5-1 against Venu before choking, it wouldn't surprise me if another big forehand started giving her trouble.
Mind you, Venus has never had a great forehand, but girls have always been content to loop balls or hit down the middle or volley or some other unsuccessful strategy to beat Venus. Every match I see Venus play, it seems like her opponents get more and more aggressive with their forehand.
...Don't touch me please...
I cannot stand the way you tease!
