Ok, it's a little better being her fan.


Well it's kind of great actually!

Go Venus!

Re: It's not easy being a Venus Williams fan

...it hasn't been fun for me but it's just a matter of changing the perspective. Things change and she's just not going to be the dominant force. She will always be my favorite.

Re: It's not easy being a Venus Williams fan

Me too. I have been trying. I went to a meeting, I was nervours wreck, fidgeting and wondering what she was doing.
I came to see only the match point, with 42 errors and only 25 winners. Even Morigami made 23 winners against Venus.
What the heck is wrong with the girl?

They are back!

Opinions are like assholes. Everybody has one

I am not a Venus fan. But as I was watching the Morigami match, I was pulling off for Venus and let me tell you it was so nerve wrecking. You just don't know whether she's going to committ a UE in the next point.

Re: It's not easy being a Venus Williams fan

These days, it's not easy at all being Venus' fan. She's making us age faster than we're supposed to.

*Venus*Serena*Kuznetsova*Schiavone*Taylor*Bartoli* *A.Bondarenko*Zheng*Duval*Safarova*Kirilenko*

*Federer*Nadal*Djokovic*Tsonga*Murray*Monfils*Gulb is*Young*Wawrinka*Mirnyi*

I know, Vee has gray hairs popping out all over my head.

I need to learn how to 'Let Go & Let God' handle things were Venus is concerned.

Re: It's not easy being a Venus Williams fan

It's easy for me to be a fan, but it's torture seeing her struggle with lower ranked players. I dreamed about this freaking match all last night. Thanks to Vee I didn't get a wink of sleep. However, in my dream she won in a tie break in the second set. I just knew the rain delay would work to her advantage and she would win easily if they went to a third set. Venus loves drama!

It's not easy, really it's not. What happened to that class action suit thread?
