A good performance at Warsaw will make VENUS the dominant player on the tour

JHH is out with viral injury. SERENA is out rehabing her knee. Clijsters is slowly coming back from a wrist injury. VENUS has just won the FCC title and played an excellent match in her first Fed Cup victory match.



The FCC event showed a much improved serve by VENUS (finally) and if she is just even to make the finals of the Warsaw tournament, despite her actual rankings, the Goddess of Tennis should be considered the top player on the tour, at that time and needing only another solid performance in Rome to, perhaps, make her the leading contender going into the RG Championships.

VENUS, however, will possibly need to defeat SERENA or at least JHH (if she plays) in Rome to really solidfy herself going into that Paris event.

Won't make her dominant at all, but she has been the best on clay so far. She's the only undefeated person on the stuff so far.

Thanks for the info, but I did not think that VENUS would play four events in a row before going to Paris. I somehow believe that she will skip, or should skip Germany or Rome before Paris.

True, Lindsay is playing well, but, already lacking slow foot speed and agility when young, has not gotten faster with age. Look for Lindsay to go no farther than the semis at RG.

Well, The Williams and the Belgies have not faced one another this year yet, with JHH out of action until Paris, only a confrontation between VENUS & SERENA could be the decider for dominance before RG because Kim is not likely beat either of them before Paris (or in Paris ).

Hence, at the very least, both Williams will be the dominant players going into France.

Bye.

LOL, use the word "best" Tee. She will be the best. If she sweeps the clay season then she is "dominant".

I like the word "dominant" because it sounds so, er, well, dominant.

Yeah, but you and everyone else can just say that she is the best, I guess.

I'm with Mr. Rexx on this one. I think now that Venus has tasted victory (for the 1st time in over 14 months?), she won't want to lose it again. It's like an addiction--and hopefully one she can't do without.

Go Venus! It's time to dominate!

Venus and Serena are sitting on top of the WORLD

How about "SO FAR" she is the dominant clayplayer?

Remember that little statement that I originally made.
Be patient, lets wait until Warsaw, OK?
