Venus fans!? How do you feel............

..now that that dust has settled(excuse the pun )after her quarter-final match yesterday? Obviously, my initial reactions after I watched the match on Eurosport yesterday wre of fierce anger and complete disappointment but now when I think back to the match, I don't feel as bad. This is due mainly to how Venus reacted after losing yesterday.Instead of storming off the court immediately after the match like she was about to burst into tears(as some journalists have suggested ), Venus strolled off the court waving and smiling warmly at the crowd. This made me proud to think what a gratious player our Vee really is and I think us fans should act in kind and just accept that yes Venus played quite awful but still Myskina had to win the match and we should accept that.Also, I'm just glad that Venus doesn't appear to be seriously injured and we can look forward to her dominating at Wimbledon when she should be back in full health !!!
Go Venus!!!! You may have lost yesterday but your fans are 101% proud and behind you!!!!!

I feel as though...lol

Venus played a crappy match and got what she deserved. Myskina was smart enough to keep the balls in play, nothing spectacular, but she got the job done.

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

I'm finally getting myself snapped out of it which is why I've also decided it's safe to hang out on this board--- something I wouldn't do in the past After reading some of Vee's words, I know she will bounce back

I'm bummed out, but it's only one tournament. She had a good clay season and she'll have a better one next year. On to WB!

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

I was disappointed especially since I had picked Venus to win the title! (Smarty Jones better win the triple crown tomorrow or I am really going to start doubting my abilities to pick a winner! LOL!) But Venus really picked up during the clay season winning two titles, winning both of her Fed Cup matches and making the finals of Berlin and the quarterfinals of Roland Garros. After a terrible start to the year, I do think that Venus worked hard during the clay season to get her game together and her results show that. Yes, it was disappointing that she lost, but I am happy that she played so well through this point of the season.

On to Wimbledon, it is time for Venus to reclaim her throne there!

What players do you actually like, I mean one day you hate the sisters than the next you're defending them and saying the Russians are overrated.

Sorry you got me confused with the hillbilly's on the board. Our people don't pontificate with each other - unlike yours.
