The book has already been out and was mentioned long before Pam said a thing. I remeber I think during the 00' Wimbledon final or 01' Chris Evert said the same thing. It's been out.
The problem with Venus is the belief, the confidence.
Her game has picked up immensly. The best she's been since 03' Wimbledon.
And for me, I've never seen her 1st and 2nd serve so solid and consistent.
Venus has it all and showed just as much against Serena, Maria, and Lindsay.
The porblem is not having the confidence in her game at the big moments.
Against both Davenport & Sharapova Venus would play well until the big points then her strokes and serve just went. The same nearly happened
against Serena but luckily she was able to pull it out.
No one can or will dispute that she's been hard at work on her game and it shows. Now however, she's got to work on her mental game and believe in her abilities.
It's a head game at this point.
