Question Did Anyone Catch This During Venus' Match?

According to an article I read from the AP, the writer said that she clutched her stomach a couple of times and winced, suggesting that she may have strained her abdominal muscle again. I saw most of her match and didn't see this nor did the official FO site say that she was slightly injured (like they did regarding Jennifer's injury), so I tend to believe this report is bougs.

ya know lizchris, I saw the match and really didn't notice anything. I saw Venus kind of pull at her lower left abdominal at 6-5 in the second, but it didn't look like anything was bothering her. I'm hoping that it was just an itch. I think she winced at the fact that she was on court longer than she should have been. She had a HUGE smile on her face after she won, unlike her semi final win last year at Wimby when she reaggravated the strain. But if she did pull something, she has a full day to rest. So let's hope everything is fine.

Venus normally grimaces when she hits a bad shot, which makes it look like she's in pain. I doubt it has anything to do with the abdominal strain.

She bent over one time in the second set after missing a forehand return like 4 yards long, but that was because it was such a bad shot, not that she pulled anything. I say her pull at her dress a few tims in her mid-section, but it was definetely just her re-adjusting her dress.

Hmmm....I didn´t see anything in that direction. When she hit the last shot she was jumping pretty freely, so I guess she is fine....or I hope so.

Always bet on black!

She has an obsessive compulsive disorder and is always tugging and readjusting her clothing. I don't think anything is wrong with her stomach. I saw the entire match.

I agree with pureracket. Vee was tugging at her top often. I also watched the entire match.

You know how many times I've said this to a friend?? She tugs on it for absolutely no reason sometimes

Well, Oracene commented about it, and said Venus looked like she wanted to cry, and was hoping it wasn't the "old injury from last year."

I hope she's alright, something always seems to happen when she finally gets healthy.

The OCD diagnosis is spot on. Earlier this year, against Conchita, I actually saw her redjust her top during a point. I wasn't sure until they replayed the point in slo-mo.

Whatever gets her in that winning state of mind....

Someone is quietly turning back the clock...to them bulldozer dayz...

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

So now everytime Venus touches her stomach there needs to be a thread about it.
Why not one about Serena adjusting her boobs or Mary Pierce fixing her hair?

should I start an "appeal" .
