Think about what you would do in her situation. It isn't the same thing as 1999, where she was a 19-year-old who was jealous of her sister. It is totally different.
You can't be too hard on Venus. She's had a couple of bad losses, yes (Golovin, Sprem, Molik, Farina Elia, Kuznetsova), but she can't just be injured for 6 months, then get an ankle injury, a wrist injury, blisters, etc. I mean, she can't sulk about something she had no control over.
If I had a 6 months absence, it would take me soo long to get back into the groove of things. What do you want her to say after losses? "I've been injured for 6 months, but that isn't an excuse. I shouldn't have lost even though I had two broken toes and an ear infection." ??? Is that what is worthy of her words?
I would just say "You know, this isn't the Venus I was two years ago, but I am getting there. I am not mad because I am improving and I am doing better. I played against a tough, young, up-and-comer, who loves Clay and is playing great tennis these days."
