How far will Venus go at the Aus Open 2005!

Since she is a top 8 seed, I predict her to make it to the qtrs. As much as I like Venus, I think it is damn near impossible for her to win another slam. Her 1st serve needs to undergo major reconstruction for it to be a weapon. And the forehand will need a professional touch to get it into shape. As long as Venus stays under her parents tutelage, her boring baseling game will continue to deteiorate.

Agreed, she wont win.

I'm not bold enough to predict where she'll get to though, just have to wait and see, i havent seen her play latley!

GO ALICIA MOLIK

I think that Venus should get through to the semis.


SERENA WILL WIN

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.

Serena.[21]

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that I think Venus is going to win it, as long as she doesn't get injured.

QuarterFinalist.

I am not convinced she can beat someone in the top 4 which is likely to happen in the Quarters.

Queen Vee, Super Rena, Krazy Kuzzie

Granted Hong Kong was an exhibition, i think the long matches she has were probably good for her.

Hopefully, she used as a means to weed out all the moths of her game. I think the world knows, even her diehard fans, that many of the women don't necessarily fear her type of game anymore.

But she is still a very powerful player and frankly dangerous to be reckoned with. If she can somehow keep control of her errors or nerves and has the belief she is still better than most of the women out there, she could downright win the whole thing.
