Venus is not a golfer, just a friend to Kuehne

Venus is not a golfer, just a friend to Kuehne

Tennis star Venus Williams shares a moment
with golfer Hank Kuehne after his round at
the EDS Byron Nelson Championship.


Tennis star Venus Williams shares a moment with golfer Hank Kuehne after his round at the EDS Byron Nelson Championship. Tennis superstar Venus Williams has become a close friend of PGA Tour player Hank Kuehne. So much so that Williams was among those in the gallery who followed Kuehne around at the EDS Byron Nelson Championship on Thursday.

Who would have guessed it?

Williams and her sister, Serena, learned how to play tennis on the public courts in Compton, Calif., a part of Los Angeles County where the murder rate is among the nation's highest.

Kuehne graduated from Highland Park, where the median household income was $149,389 in 2000, according to the U.S. Census.

As Kuehne shot a 4-over-par 74 in his first tournament in 13 months since returning from a back injury, Williams signed a few autographs in the gallery. At 6-foot-1, the 2000 Sports Illustrated Sportswoman of the Year was very noticeable, with her long braided hair and dark sunglasses.

While Williams said she plans to play Wimbledon and doesn't play golf, she declined an interview request. However, Kuehne was more than willing to discuss his friendship with one of tennis' top female players.

You have a famous celebrity following you today. Do you want to talk about Venus supporting you? Yeah. It's always nice to have support, friends and family out here, walking around with me. It makes things nice. It's always good to have people you're closest to out here.

Is Venus a golfer? No.

Are you trying to get her to play golf? No. I think she's playing the right sport.

Is she trying to get you to play tennis? No. I don't play tennis.

Do you follow her on the pro tennis circuit? I've been to one event. So I definitely keep up with how she does. We just try to figure it out and support each other when we can.

Was this really necessary? Why do some people have to always bring class in everything? So two people of different upbringing can't have a friendship/relationship? I guess this writer didn't feel comfortable enough to bring up their race as an issue, so he had to be subtle about it by bringing up class.

Venus and Serena didn't have anything to do with the murder rate being the highest in Compton, Calif. By the way, it's not where you've been that's count the most; it's where you're going. I'm sure the sisters have gone far higher places in the world than this Kuehne guy and made a lot more money.

I know there was no point in that b/c the tables are turned and he's not even on Venus' income level.

Re: Venus is not a golfer, just a friend to Kuehne

I think he was a promising junior player, but because of injuries hasn^t lived up to his potential. I doubt he will ever be a big winnier on the golf tour. I hope I am wrong and that he and Venus make each other happy.

In order to improve his game, he should borrow the Wimbledon '05 tape and watch Venus' eyes and focus during that fortnight.

It may not have been necessary but, I think
you are making the bigger deal of it. Much bigger
than it is. Especially given the fact that you brought
race into it.

They are happy and support each other.
End of story.

Re: Venus is not a golfer, just a friend to Kuehne

Venus should take up golf. In a couple of years or so she could win

a GS in Tennis and one in golf the same year.

Then Serena could join her and they would be an unprecedented

1 & 2 in a second Pro Sport.
