27 years old - In tennis that is usually 1-2 years from retirement
4 whole titles? - Not GS singles titles, even Dementieva has one of those.
Game knowledge 2nd to none? - Are we talking about BJK?
Why has she never done this before? Where are her French Open sisngles titles? Don't expect a repeat performance of that match ever.
Geez Teerex come on where is Venus Williams`s French Open title then? Oh yes taking Venus to three sets means you are playing out of your mind-best ever tennis.. LOL what a joke.
Go there a check the kind of level Serena is that she beat Sprem 6-1 7-5 in Amelia Island.
But one of things really supports the fact that even with this 2 straight titles and a final does not mean that Venus was playing grand slam winning tennis, pretty much since she has been taking to three sets by non top ten players, must to add that these players has not been grand slam champion contenders lately (or never been perhaps, with Martinez the great exception who was a slam herself won it almost 10 years ago).
Venus still has a long way to go to reach her level, and eventhough with Kim out of Roland Garros, there is still plenty of competition there.
Also NOT EVEN beating Venus is guarrantee for Slam wins (except only Serena
who beat her in those finals) especially the past 3 years when it has been Venus who has not won a slam during this period, let alone just taking her to three sets 8-).
Many many players have beaten Venus since her last grand slam win and only Serena has been the only one to take Grand Slams.
