Is this Venus' Year???????

Everyone is talking about Serena this year but I think we will see more from Venus.

I think Venus is well overdue for success and lets be honest the only thing that has really been holding her back was the wrist. The one time where there were no complaints of the wrist she ended up winning wimbledon. We also all know that she is more dedicated than Serena and works much harder.

I expect to see her make a good run at the french and I expect her to do well for the rest of the year.

Its just to bad that she cant really pick up many points before wimbldeon.

Re: Is this Venus' Year???????

When did this become a Serena vs. Venus issue?

Björk
Imperious in victory. Never conceiving the possibility of defeat. The greatest of her era. The self-belief, that smile, backhand, muscles, serve, personality, all larger than life. There's no greater sight in women's tennis than watching Serena J. Williams go to work.
The others are Great, but Serena's the Greatest

I like Venus, but I want to see more than a Tier 3 win before I make an assessment about her year. I wish her the best, though

Re: Is this Venus' Year???????

Yes this will be a great year for Venus. She is in terrific shape, and evidently been working hard on her weaknesses. A Venus without a weak forehand and a dominating second serve is every tennis player's nightmare. Miami may be her unveiling much like what happened to Serena at Miami in 2002.

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!
SERENA PRINCESS OF POWER

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
Françoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.

Re: Is this Venus' Year???????

Actually she can pick up quite a few points, playing maimi and charleston. Those are tier I events and award alot of points. Venus didn't play either one of them last year. Also if she win that other small clay court event which she should that's another 140 points.

Re: Is this Venus' Year???????

Actually I feel this is going to be like 2003 again except Vee will pick up Henin's majors. Memphis shoudl be the beginning of a huge clay streak which will motivate SErena to reclaim her title as queen of Wimblendon and Vee and Serena will fight it out for the US harcourts.

Serena and Markus together forever

Re: Is this Venus' Year???????

But...Memphis is not on clay.

It can be the beginning of many things. But not a "clay streak."

Yes she can.

2 Tier 1's (Miami & Charleston)
Tier 3 (Istanbul)

No points to defend.

So, she can gain quite a bit if she stays
healthy and maintains her Memphis form
or better.

Also, only 49 QF pts. of Warsaw to defend.
Memphis covers her not defending Rome pts.
And I believe she'll have a great RG.
