Let's not forget that Maria is the perfect opponent for Venus on grass.

It would be much much tougher for her to look that good against Justine.

Venus always seems to be able to up her game against the other 'celebs' on tour. She's really amazing. Very impressive stuff today.

Re: How does Venus' game go from absolute shit to great?

Yeah she was so mediocre during her match prior to this. But she's almost perfect this time unlike Serena who's having a hard time fixing her footwork.

Re: How does Venus' game go from absolute shit to great?

Yeah... I guess everyone likes to beat on Maria these days ( ), but still. Venus didn't play well in one match and shit in the next. She has been consistently shitty this Wimbledon prior to today.

Re: How does Venus' game go from absolute shit to great?

It's a real puzzle with Venus.

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

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

Re: How does Venus' game go from absolute shit to great?

That's why some of you need to think twice before writing Venus off.

The Williams Sisters

It's great to be a fan of the two most talented women in tennis.

Only IDIOTS count out the Williams sisters!!!
Serena: 13 Slams, ranked: #1
Venus: 7 Slams, ranked: #2

Re: How does Venus' game go from absolute shit to great?

It's the story of Venus' career. Up and down play. But probably more importantly, she tends to play to the level of her opponent.

JA ME KA IS THE GOAT!!!

Re: How does Venus' game go from absolute shit to great?

Centre court like someone else said in this thread. Venus two crappy matches were on the graveyard court, where she lost last year. Something about playing on Court 2 makes Venus play like crap.

Really, don't even look at me...

Re: How does Venus' game go from absolute shit to great?

That's one of the best things about being a Venus fan - even when she plays some crap matches in a tournament, we know she still has the ability to suddenly turn on the style and blitz her opponents
