Has Venus put on more muscle?

Is it me, or does Venus look like she has put back on a little more muscle. Lastyear this time she was really, really frail looking. I would just like to know what some of you think?

I noticed some change too. She looks to be in much better shape overall than she was @ this time last year. She was becoming too thin IMO, but now she looks much better. Hopefully this is a sign that she has been working very hard on her fitness

Venus's body is naturally pretty thin and lean so if she doesn;t weight train alot it shows like last year, i guess she is doing more weights now but she looks fine either way i think.

Venus mentioned weight training in
an article last year.

She said that Kerri wanted her to put on
some more muscle because she was thin but Venus
said she didn't want to and she liked the way she looked.

Maybe they finally convinced her.

We've seen the difference in her body circa 97' at the
age of 17 to 05' at the age of 24. She's not nearly
as muscular as she once was.

I just think maybe Venus didn't want to be that muscular.
Maybe she did get a little too thin last year.

Now however, it looks like maybe she's trying to
find more of a balance not too thin or muscular.

She looks great regardless!

Maybe it's me, but Vee looks the same to me. Do y'all have a recent pic and one from last year to compare?

I personally didn't pick up on any difference until
JMac & crew mentioned it last year at RG during
Venus' 4th rd match.

They commented on how folks around the grounds were talking
about how slender she looked and John said he had never seen
her this thin before.

Venus is prone to anemia. I read that long time ago.

I cheer for Williams x 2, Pierce, Patty, Nastya and Kim

I miss Sandrine, Monica, Iva & Joanette

I miss Pinky and the Brain. I want Anna K back so she and Hingis can get in more cat fights like the old days.

She has always been thin and tall...she has Richard's skinny legs, too.

Serena has Oracene's body...bigger, but still great nonetheless.

she is finall looking happy. the last two years have been devastating for her in so many ways. I am glad she is finally putting on some muscle and looking happy.
It is only a matter of time before she hits form again. If lindsay and molik could find another gear at this stage of their career so can venus.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Will this be Venus's party in which she invites no one?

I certainly hope so. Unless she's inviting the Williams fans.

Dammitt, Venus!!!
