The look on Venus' face...

....while Serena was cramping was priceless. While it was obvious that Oracene was simply exasperated and Richard was concerned, Venus was feeling the pain. I don't think I've ever seen her look so sad. Win, lose, or draw, Serena has her big Sister in her corner.

Re: The look on Venus' face...

I cant believe i dreamed this last night. It was a bizarre nightmare... it wasnt Serena it was Venus , both were bald, and venus was screaming at her ankle, screaming loud like mary pierce. It was a nightmare!!! IT was a doubles match and on clay, i wake up and it was venus on tv 3-5 40-0... But watching serena, damn!!

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.

Re: The look on Venus' face...

Gosh this is the worst experience of watching tennis i have ever had the misfortune of experiencing. The greatest figther in tennis...I think sport...reduced to a bubbling wreck. Rain please persist. She surely will come out in trousers?

I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.

Re: The look on Venus' face...

I think everyone really felt bad for Serena.
Even though Dani is there I don't think she really believes she could beat a healthy Serena.

I'm still suspicious about this cramp though.
I don't think you can get a cramp like this in this weather without doing some vigorous activities.
And I haven't seen Jackie Long until today.
So I believe she might have been fucking yesterday or early today which is her perogative well until it fucks up her chances at a slam.

I'm not all what you do during your sessions, Wannabe, to result in a left calf cramp. The Kama Sutra doesn't get that muscle.

Someone is quietly turning back the clock...to them bulldozer dayz...

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

Loss of fluids causes cramps, though. Remember, Jackie is trying to validate his sexuality, so he probably did try having sex last night.

It looks like he did more than try with that cramp she had.

Sweetie, you don't need the Kama Sutra to get a left calf cramp.
All Jackie Long would have to do is tear it up from the back while she's standing up holding on to something to get her footing.

I don't know y'all. Jackie doesn't look the type. Doesn't look like he has the strength to knock Rena into an uncomfortable, calf-bracing position, nor the stamina to have her sweat out enough fluids.

And don't tell me about looks being deceiving, books and their covers, big surprises and their packages. All that works with size, not with execution or performance.....

Re: The look on Venus' face...

It was such a touching moment for me. I hate to admit it, but I got a bit misty eyed.

Yeah they look like tears rolling down her face. No wonder, it was disturbing hearing Serena scream in pain while the trainer was attending to her.
