Congrats to Venus!

She really looked happy and even dazzled with that trophy lol. I could see it in her eyes that she wants to take it home so she'll be back..no doubt.

I have been SO impressed by Venus post Australian Open, and by the amount she's been playing she deserves the number 1 spot (although I hope Jen gets it back )

CONGRATULATIONS!!

and where they produce desolation, they call it peace

That's right Ms. Venus. Another one of those "theories" is getting ready to bite the dust:

She'll NEVER be #1 ... hehehehehehehehe

That trophy is a great way to get top players to return to Antwerp.

Congrats Venus! Finally, I will soon be able to legally call you the true no.1.

And thank you Juju for making Venus work for it.

(Now, if Serena can just recover and get her butt back to the courts!)

I browse once in a while.

Great looking trophy and a diamond to boot! Doha has some work to do to keep up with this tourney but you'd think they should be able to throw in a few gems with all the oil out there.

Well done, Venus!

And kudos to Justine for fighting back like she did. I'm sure she gave her fans a great show.
