This whole thread is repetitive and dull (no disrespect to you, Volcana) but the enigma that is Venus Williams is the same old story from ever since.
I don't know if her problem right now is match play and match toughness but it's always the errors that kill her. When I think of this huge opportunity Venus blew it just annoys the hell out of me. She had no business losing to Vaidisova.
It seems to me Venus is acting like she's Serena out there playing. The fist pumping, the hitting out when she's losing is so like Serena, who just hits harder when she's struggling. It has worked many times for Serena but it didn't work for Venus because that is not her style. She should have slowed herself down and constructed her points properly which is what she has donein the past to get back in match.
Venus is too old not to have learned her lesson by now and her time is too short for her to not play smart tennis.
It's 2008 and I'm shopping for a new fave. Hell no! And Venus is still playing?
I Love You, Roger and Venus, 5-time Wimbledon Champions!
