I am SO proud of Venus!

Despite losing to Kuzy, she's BACK on the tennis court and gave us a great effort in her Hingis match! I love her so much, and am so grateful she's back and playing!

Considering it was her first proper tournament, making the quarter finals, and losing to thee most in form player of the year, is a good effort. I am just so glad she is back.

If she can just get a little more match tight, she can achieve some great things in the remainder of this year.

What is she playing next? Best of luck to Our Venus!

Me too. Proud and happy and gracefull.

"I dream of people watching me holding up my third Wimbledon trophy... Most of all I dream of being a good person to all that are inspired by me I dream of having girls, women, boys, men being fond of not only what I have done on the tennis court, or on the big screen or what I design but I dream of what people think of me as a person.
I dream that people think of me as a giving person as a person that
loves life and is fun to be around." - Serena

i'm also glad Venus is back - i'm gonna enjoy seeing her get beaten up by Kuzy, Momo, Justine, Kim, Petrova, Lena D, and maybe some lower ranked players as well.

It's too bad Venus can't play against Hingus in every match!

yeah...i'm THRILLED to have her back on the tennis court! She did a great job...and yeah, what's with scheduling her to have 3 matches in 3 days....hmmmm. Anyways! It's definately a good result from her....lots of players have lost to Kuznetsova this year...inc. SHARAPOVA! So, no shame in that...I definately think that when she gets more match-play under her belt, she should be INCREDIBLY formidable. She had game points in like 75% of those games, so it really could have gone either way...When she gets more match tough...those will be the matches that she should win by the same scoreline....GOOD JOB VEE! WE LOVE YOU! Just waiting til 'lil sis comes back...then it'll be ON!

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.

I am so proud too! Her performance against Hingis was fabulous - not just in terms of actual play, but her fight and spirit and determination to win. I only saw snippets of teh Kuzzy match, but she seemed to palying well actually. I hope she can keep playing and get match-tight.....who knows what she might do then!

GO VENUS!

i was amazed that venus played that well-it was only her 4th match of the year compared to sveta's 29th

to come back from playing poorly against hingis and major cramping and play that well against one of the in form players who also happens to be great on clay is not a bad effort

venus
hopefully she can keep injury free during the rest of the clay season and be ready to defend her wimby title!
