Wertheim was right afterall

"As a rule, I think too many of you unfairly hold Venus (and Serena) to higher standards than other players. The kind of quotes that go unnoticed when made by other players generate all sorts of anger when they come out of the Williams sisters' mouths."

and seeing how people keep dwelling on Serena´s comments regarding her OWN play, guess he was right.

Always bet on black!

He had K-Lina beating Venus in Paris.
Little did we know he was only off by 1 Slam.

Well, I did have to make my check out to 'Ted Watts'... It looks like he got it in time. If she wouldn't be such a choker with a lead, it woulda been like 3&3 or 4&4.

I thought you said that you thought Venus would win but were cheering for K-Lina.
