Talking Venus defeated Martina... On Clay!!

I'm so happy!!

I think this match shows that Venus can play on clay, and she can beat top players on clay as well!!

I think that after seeing that Venus defeated Martina and Justine, 2 very good clay courters, I can put Venus down as a serious RG contender...

It's 2:2 all between them on clay now right?

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Wasn't it a good match. Im naturally saddened.
Venus the Queen of clay?? Nah Not yet. If she wins Roland Garos then she will prove she is!

Irma not so sure about the stat. I want to say 2/1 for Venus

Jomar score is 7/5 6/3 for Venus.

Williamsrules don't forget about Arantxa, and Dokic. And Paola. Hey Venus beat ASV ad Hingis back to back this week. great going Venus.

I am so happy, what a great rivalry.

Congrats Venus! This win proves that Venus CAN play on clay, and deserves to be called the best in tennis right now...And I have to say she's a very serious contender at Roland Garros...

Wink Ms VEE is not a good clay...

Let me get this straight...Venus can't play on "clay" and she'll never get past a "clay specialist" like ASV...

Well, she'll never get past Martina, one of the best on "clay"...


HaHaHaHaHa..

Gooooooooooooo VEEEEEEEEnus

Talking

Countess, Hingis has not won RG, so why is your mind should Venus in order to be labled a good clay courter have to win it?

Personally this straight set win, imho was telling. Venus is great on clay, and the scary part is, she can still improve wth her tennis.

FEARLESS VENUS RULEZ!!!

Talking

Yeah... that's right Dawn...

Venus has defeated:

Paola
Justine
Martina
Justine

on clay this season... that is really impressive so far...

She is 8-0 on clay this season, and surely, with this kind of record, she has got to be a favourite at RG...

PS: Not to worry Martians, this is Martina's first clay tourny, she needs time to warm-up...

Yes, Countess, maybe only RG winners can be called queens of clay.



So, for now, the Great VENUS may be called the Countess of Clay!

Bye bye.
