What Do you guys see Happening To Venus

I wanted to know what tennis fans who follow the game closely think will happen to Venus now.
I think personal Venus is at the start of a downwards slump. And I really think it is going to be pretty hard for her to get out of it.
Venus has no longer got a aura about her. And once that is lost it is very hard to get it back.

This aura bullshit means nothing. If you think Venus was just winning because of an aura, then you're delusional. All she needs to do is play better.

I think Venus has had some bad luck at horrible moments. She finally got her groove right before the French Open and then hurts her ankle AGAIN. I'm not saying she didn't win because of that, but that definitely hampered her preparation before the French. Then she finally gets on her favorite surface but runs into a difficult 2nd round opponent and loses. I think all it will take is a month of maybe some good luck and staying uninjured for her to get back to form.

Some of the Williams fans I did expect you to put this thread down. But im not intrested in what you have to say.
I want to know what tennis fans think do they think she will ever get back to the top agin. People who follow the sport becuses they enjoy it not just becuses a williams plays it

to be honest, now Venus no longer has an aura, she'll get beaten?

all the players that have beaten Venus this year have played great tennis. that cannot be denied. a hiccup, yes...she's having a tough time. she'll get out of it.

i'm gonna be evil and support Venus over Serena at the Open.

I am a big big Williams fan. Both Venus and Serena... but the slump-bullshit, indeed, has to be DONE! Come on now. And, Sprem is getting way too little credit for her win. I think that people who say she didn't deserve to win didn't see the whole match...

Anywayz, Venus will be back. Just watch her...

Venus might never dominate again like she did in´00-´01, but to say that she´s over goes a bit too far. I think Venus still is good enough to win another major and keep winning other titles as well...she´s going through a rough patch now, but I think she´ll bounce back.

Always bet on black!

I am new here. My thoughts are as follows:

1. Venus was out 1/2 a year. The first tournaments back, she was rusty.

2. The losses she has had recently have been to players that didn't have a history of losing to the Williams. Sprem is the perfect example. She led 3-0 in the Berlin semi before Venus came back and won. She carried that confidence, and excellent play, into their match in Wimbledon.

3. The murder of their sister. This is huge. I recently lost a close family member, and things that were so important at work don't seem so important anymore. I have been told that will change in time. I am guessing it will take time for Venus too.

I think any talk of a slide is premature, whatever the rankings may say. Give her some time to deal.

I did not mean to make it sound like Venus was over. I think Venus will get back in to the top ten. Im just not 100% sure she has the same passion for the game she once did

And yeah.....maybe the loss of their sister still is on their minds and they aren´t completely over it yet.

Always bet on black!

She'll play tennis, and continue to be successful, and continue to make more money then most tennis players dream of. Oh, and she'll continue to the most talked about player in the game and on this board.
