Venus Williams did loose today, i have not looked at any threads after Kim beat Venus. I give Kim all the credit for staying in the match, and not giving up. She thought up a new strategy and in the process she got errors from Venus but also she picked it up a level. Normally when a player (besides a williams) does loose, you all take it like well whateva, which is understandable b/c whoever they played most likely the person was a better player and therefore expected the loss, but when Venus or Serena do loose, you all start actin weird and funnie. To me it seems that you all must assume they are some type of Godess and don't have that ability, b/c yall become so ruthless on them and hate on them, and then you act like Kim beat the piss out of her. And when the Interview comes out and kim says that she picked it u a level but also said she told herself to hang in there and hope venus starts to make errors, you all act like that never came out her mouth, you think the only thing she said was that she picked her game up a level and thats how she was able to overcome venus. Kim is a fantastic player, but she knew just like the rest of yall, that if she Venus would had continued to play the way she did in the 1st set, kim would have been long gone. They press tired to bring up the subject that Venus before this tournie and loosing to Kim felt that there was nobody out there that can beat her but herself. Is there any reason for that to change? Kim did end up beating her, but kim didn't step it up to the point that venus couldn't do nuthing. Venus just kept on making erros. As you see in the 3rd when Venus was down 1-4 she got it all the back to 4-5. But it was too late. The fight was over. Venus lost this match b/c of Venus. If she wouldn't have lost her focus and kept playing like she did in the 1st set, she could have won that match easily, even if clijsters picked it up. Venus and Serena are not Goddesses they are just really talented player. Venus and Serena's looses all this were not b/c they got beat, they were b/c they gave the match away. They either were injured and were not 75%, or they hit all those errors after dominating the 1st set to get give the match away. Yes a williams can looose, but do they loose b/c they got beat? That stopped about 2 years ago!
