Venus fans I have to ask

Why is Venus so stubbon about not getting a new coach. I mean if she can find the right person it could really help her give her a fresh view about her tennis.
Cus to be honest sometimes I watch Venus and im not to sure what she trying to do out there on the court apart from hit amazing winners. It is like there is no sense of good soild match play.
I feel like Venus has come to a stand still in her tennis. And I cant understand how a very smart and single minded women that I believe Venus is would not take a step back and see where her career is going.

At the end of the day her Mum and Dad will always be there for her. She only gonna be playing top tennis for another six seven years. So why not make the most of it. Cus I bet there is no worse feeling than to retire with out reaching your full potenial

because the only people she has to prove anything to are the haters on this board. She has NOTHING to prove to anyone. Whether she wins 100 more matches in her career or not one more match, she'll go down as one of the best players ever. She doesn't need a coach. She has one. She needs her confidence back. An injury that took her out of the game for 6-7 months is the cause of her recent poor play. Once she gets her confidence back, she'll be back.

I think people ignore some things about both sisters. They didn't just START playing badly, things in their lives have changed. Funny how people forget that BOTH players were out more than half a year. It takes time to get your game back. Look at Lindsay..it took her about 2-3 years to get hers back. It doesn't happen overnight. These are seasoned players...and a new coach at this point won't make a HUGE difference. I mean these girls have been playing since the age of 4, and a lot of things come natural to them. So having a new coach won't help things much. They just need to improve on the things they've always been doing.

Really, don't even look at me...

VEEREE When a great player like Billy Jean who has always repected both sisters comes out and says you need a new coach. Then maybe they have something there

Obviously, keeping her parents as her coaches is more important than getting outside advice or training. Even if she got different coaching, she's still dealing with the fact that the other players are not bothered as much by the style of tennis Venus plays. Alot of them can hit hard now, and power doesn't bother them from another player. So, not only would Venus be getting coaching from somebody new, she might have to re-tool her game somewhat as well, and after all these years, I doubt that she wants to. Let's face it, she's been losing to Serena for quite some time, so maybe losing just doesn't bother her as much any more.

As a Venus fan, I totally agree with you. She is at a stand still and needs a new coach to reach her full potential. I'm disappointed in the results, but I'm not surprised. I had a fear of Venus going in to this match against Molik and the way Molik's been playing as of late. Venus played a good match, but Molik played a better one. All credit to her. GO SERENA

Im very sorry I had to say that but some Venus fans are just unable to take a single bad word said about Venus game and jump on a poster. until they dont want to post there thoughts anymore. And they have done this with a lot of posters over the years I have been comeing to this message board. So i just cant be bothered to reason with them anymore and just hit them where it hurts. So im sorry to all the desent Williams fans out there. But thoses few really give the rest of you a bad name. And do make people want to rub it in your face when Venus loses. Cus they get so fed up with being put down and sworn at over thing they take personal.
