Its like ...Venus has no Sister now...

to look up in the draw, theres no pressure, she can be more focus, is richard with her, i wouldnt be surprise if she wins the french, or do i?

Venus Williams (The Queen) , Maria Sharapova (The Diva) , Lindsay Davenport (The Legend) , Jelena Janković (The Exotic Beauty) , Serena Williams (The Princess) , Ana Ivanovic (the REAL Promise)

"People said, we weren't going to make it because we were from the 'hood. … People didn't believe in us because of where we came from." Venus Williams.

It was like this at last years Wimbledon after Serena lost all the pressure was off her shoulders and she became revtalised and the same seems to be happening again

Grassonkova.

I think this will help her to be more relaxed and hopefully play better. I'm more encouraged with her present attitude. I think if she can get a high percentage of serves in she will be fine, as her woes usually start from missing too many first serves.

This is another great opportunity for her to get to the final once again and I hope she doesn't let it slip away.

BTW anyone knows when she plays? I hope is Sunday or Monday so I can at least watch, it has been so long!

It is more important that people believe in our integrity than agree with our opinions.

Not Sunday since that schedule has already been posted so it would have to be Monday since she is in the top half

Has Venus ever played well in a Slam that Serena was not a part of? Since 1997, that is..

There is no play on sidecourts tomorrow. For showcourts the program is on the website.

I already said it will be a Venus vs Martina Final, but Martina will win in 3 tight sets.

Venus is a professional and she will go in to this French Open more prepared than she has been in a long while.

She's focused and non injured or recovering from an injury.

She has a great attitude.

All good signs.

If she needs the support of Serena, Serena is just an email away. And should she meet Mauresmo in the QF, Serena can email her with advice about how to give the "Momo beatdown!" Remember the "email at Wimbledon" Venus referred to after beating Maria. Sisters are never too far away.
