Obsession.

18 threads on Venus Williams on the first 7 pages in GM. Maybe she should have her own "Venus Williams General Discussion" Forum?

Oh yeah, and to put it into perspective- the first 7 pages were last posted in, just under 24 hours ago

.....or a Lesbian Icon worship forum, for the 'beautiful' Venus. Only when the tabloids catch Naomi and Venus in bed together, will she be worth 19 threads in GM.

It is kinda odd. She hasn't beaten anyone in the top five since mid 2003 and hasn't won a Grand Slam event since 2001. Yet, some of her most die hard fans cling to the false hope that she'll rise from the ashes to win another.

Maybe so, but I don't get the obsession-thingy either.

I heard Venus lost 7/7 matches against top 10 players last year.

That's because everybody (haters included) is secretly in love with Venus and can't get enough of her ... she is and will always be THE QUEEN after all!!! GO VENUS!

Um, we like Venus because she's awesome, hilarious, classy, talented, a great player, intelligent, balanced, generous, and a kind person.

Her winning all the time is just a bonus .

Oh right and she's a great champion also. The list goes on and on.
