Venus has the ability to catch fire at Wimbledon and dominate the summer season, as she has done for the last 2 years. Surely people realise that she is not in top gear at the moment, her performances this week showed that. Remember her game at the US Open? She can call on that kind of form, and she will at some stage.
She may not hit her stride this year, but I would be very surpised considering what an accomplished and determined athlete she is.
