Will Venus ever win a title this year?

Me thinks that that is going to be a tall task for her. She should've beaten Dementieva 3-6, 7-5, 6-3 in the quaterfinals, and by the way Nadia played Elena, Venus would most likely be in the final. I think I'm see some of the old Venus again, but she needs to put everything together to win tournaments. Dicuss.

plan and simple, yes she will win a title, will she win a slam? if she keeps playing like she has been then no, but i expect her play to improve and her being a factor for the last two slams of the year, french i'm not so sure?

Who knows. She could play some Tier III and win it. I saw some of the Venus of old come out. But I saw that in Australia too. It doesn't last long. In the case of her last match, it lasted from about a third of the third set. I don't see her winning anything Tier II or above with how she is playing.

I don't think Venus will win a title this year. She has too many people in her way, Justine will be a factor, Elena (whether anyone wants to admit it or not) and of course lil sis will always be there to keep Venus from winning. Serena has adjusted much quicker than Venus. So I think any chance venus has will be eliminated by jhh or serena

Most top 10 players and most Russians will be a threat to Venus.

What do you think Venus' biggest problem? I think that she can't seem to put all facites of her game together at once. She should be in the finals, you know. Venus showed me that she could step it up when it counted the most at 6-5 and was at 30-15 before the serve went off. She dealt with her unforced errors well at the end of the second and the beginning of the third and even when sdhe broke for 5-3 in the third. Venus knows that she should've that match, having 5-3, 30-15, and match point at 6-5 in the third. Maybe she just tell herself, "I can do it again, I almost did." I think Venus will remember this and be more focused at the end of matches now. Venus seemed not to be focused on her chances.

next week, I think she will have to do some serious work to defend that title! I hope Jen can win a title this year, but it's not looking good, she only had one last year

LMAO Well Elena beat a healthy Justine last year on Clay so I guess if they meet up Justine will go down to her.

The question wasn't whether Justine would lose, it was will Venus win a title, my opinion is no, so accept it and make your own

It's too early to tell.

I don't see why not, it's not like she's not slowly getting better.
