Post just call her "Rosie": Williams fans, will you be disappointed if Venus....

I have too much time on my hands to think.<br />Anyway, I've decided to start calling Venus, "Rosewater" Williams. If anybody else wins Wimbledon next year, will you be very disappointed? <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" /> <br />Since Venus won back-to-back, and has such success on grass lately, I almost expect her to walk away with the title. What about you?

Dammitt, Venus!!!

If she plays like she did at times last year, she might as well keep the dish until she retires.

I usually refer to Venus as "Summer Breeze" because she does so well during that season. I fully expect Venus to three-peat at Wimbledon and I refuse to think otherwise. In 2002 I hope to call her "A woman for all seasons" <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" /> <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" />

I get extremely nervous thinking about it because everybody, even most non-fans, think she will win, so it's almost too much exepctations.

But anyways, GO VENUS! <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Much as I like Venus, us UK fans have only just had to stop yawning at the men's champion being the same every year, we don't want the women's one to start!!!

Mirjana Lucic : Australian Open doubles champ and back in Top 100

Jelena Jankovic : US Open finalist 2008 and World No. 1

Jennifer Capriati : 3 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1

[center]Rafael Nadal : 10 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1 [/center]

I can understand that <a href="http://www.capriati," target="_blank">www.capriati,</a> but I can't help but to want Venus to dominate Wimbledon for years and years to come. If someone else stills her glory next year, I'll be terribly disappointed. Oh, well. If Venus loses, she'll probably just shrug it off and move on. She's good at that. I could use some of that from her. <img src="cool.gif" border="0">

Dammitt, Venus!!!

i'd be VERY disappointed if Venus did NOT win Wimbledon and the US Open. i'm so used to her winning those two majors, maybe i'm selfish, but i want her to dominate Wimbly and the USO for many years to come <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

of course winning Oz and Roland Garros as well <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

If Venus were to win the next 10 Wimby's straight, I'd jump for joy and tear up the place in celebration the next 10 years straight.

Hail-Venus, why did you start calling Venus, "Rosewater"?

I agree with Cheops, I hope Vee wins the next 10 Wimbys, because that is her dream.

Jovon, that's the name of the Wimbledon trophy; The Venus Rosewater Dish. Isn't that great. It's Venus' destiny to win it!

Dammitt, Venus!!!

I think that only Serena can take USOpen or Wimbledon from Venus, but with her menatl block, no one can <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" />
