No, because people who take polls control her destiny and if they say she won't then she won't. Also, only other players can make improvements, Venus can't.

Yeah. She's better than how badly everyone's writing her off. She should have won the French, but she got scared. Next year will definately be better.

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.

Yeah, because all top ten players have won grandslams.

sadly, no. there are many reasons why she didn't even come remotely close in 2004, and those reasons haven't gone away nor have they been alleviated. venus has lost to the first consistent baseliner that she has faced in every grand slam this year...

She got scared? That is the worst excuse I've ever heard!

There must be about a dozen players out there who have a realistic chance of winning a Slam,and Venus is one of them. But I think that Henin,Clijsters,Serena and Kuznetsova are the most obvious candidates. Anything's possible though. Three of the four Slam-champions were surprises this year.

So only those who made a grandslam semi in 2004 will win a grandslam in 2005. Just like only those who made a grandslam semi in 2003 won a grandslam in 2004. Maybe someone should have told that to Sveta, Myskina, and Maria; none of whom made it past a grandslam QF last year.

I know Venus was great player years ago
Years ago? last year she played 6 tournaments and made the finals of 4 with two being grandslams. But I see how you can think of those as the results of a non-great player.

Well my opinion is that you form poorly formed opinions. Venus goes one year without making a grandslam semi after making one for the past 7years, but time is only passing her by and not those players who haven't made a grandslam final in just the past three years (including some in the current top ten.) You sure have extremely high standards for such a non-great player.

Hmmm.....what can one say. I think that by next year she should start posting up her results like she used to: consistent at the majors...I´m not writing her off yet. Venus is still Venus...might well win wimbledon or the open again.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

I'm not going to talk about Venus.

But I believe Serena will win at least a GS title in 2005.

Yes, I think a motivated, healthy and resurgent Serena will prompt the same kind of results from Venus. She has sooo much game, im confident she'll put it together next year for sure.

In my opinion, I believe Venus will win at least one more gran slam. Yeah Venus has not done good this year, but no one is perfect. She was injured, and yeah I know that many use it as an excuse, but the girl was injured. Venus had an off year in 2004, so I really don't expect her to do much worse in 2005. Her confidence was down, so hopefully she regained some during the U.S. Open against Lindsay. People that think that Venus is done, keep on believing that. One thing you have to learn is to never count Venus Williams out of anything.

My Reason For Living Is Too See Venus Dominate In 2007!!!!

Eenie, meenie, miney... no.

I don't think she has another on in her. SF's, sure, maybe even a final, but not another GS.
