The only thing that worries me about Venus...
is the fact that she is losing so many tight matches this year that could have gone her way. Venus used to be such a mentally strong player. I can recall numerous matches where her mental strength has carried her through. Then why is it that since the stomach injury in 03' she has not been the same player? To me she has the strokes and the serve to win several more majors but her mental strenght is gone it seems. I mean the old venus would have come through that tiebreak in the second set against molik at the AO and pulled it out in the third. The old venus would have closed momo out in antwerp and taken the diamonds. I cant really blame her for today cuz she shouldnt have even played but still she certainly had her opportunities to take the match from a nervous farina elia.
I am interested to hear what you guys have to say because I find this to be totally perplexing. How does a player go about regaining that mental fortitude that they onced possessed???
I love ya, Vee. You just gotta win the French this year. You just gotta
