Coolbird, with all due respect, if Venus can hardly win a Tier 1 or 11 how on earth is she going to get through to win a Slam? Winning tournaments is a foundation to take her through the Slam victories, IMO. You clearly stated that she has to play matches in order to prepare for the Slams, so is it too early for her to begin working on her game? Venus' game has virtually ceased up sinc eher injury; she needs to find her range and her confidence; I think these matches are helping her a lot. Even tho she's had some shitty results she justs keeps on trying. That's good, even though I think there are other things she can do as well.
Venus seems to be trying really hard to finish this year on a good note and I applaud her for her effort. She's not popular for flying over to Europe in the fall and for her to bother when her game is so handicapped suggests to me that she wants to, not only make the YEC, but to get as much matchplay as possible. I hope she's not playing LInz because I don't want her exhausted or injured.
It's 2008 and I'm shopping for a new fave. Hell no! And Venus is still playing?
I Love You, Roger and Venus, 5-time Wimbledon Champions!
