Like Venus and suddenly its Over and her career is finished and she will never win a slam. how do you figure that?
Myskina lost. Is her career over? Shes not that much younger than venus.
Dementieva lost. is her career over? Not even a slam there.
Venus played better than both those players in her final match and yet her career is over? Please.
We all know what Venus needs to do To tighten up her game however she still might have lost. Alicia played better, Alicia won. There's no mystery here.
I hate to say it but Pam was right. In a close match when things are on the line Venus has too many things that can go wrong and not enough strategy to overcome them.
She cant just walk on court without scouting her player, but I think she does.
If alicia loses to davenport in the quarters I guess her career is over too huh?
Its really stupid because people win and they lose.
Also if Jen can comeback from tennis obscurity to win a slam anything is possible. we can only hope venus does the things she needs to do but I think she is playing with blinders on about her weaknessess.
You know I for once wish a reporter would simply say" Venus your forehand is a liability. Your serve is no long the weapon it was. You don't attack the net enough. what are you going to do?"
anyway congrats to alicia and GO DAVENPORT!
Dont you find it ironic that people have been saying that Venus was going downhill and would never win another slam for over a year now, but when she loses to a hot player its like that player has walked on water and will win the touranment.
