Venus should send Vaidisova a thank-you note for the 2007 Wimbledon trophy

because the only players who can beat in-form Venus on grass are Nicole and Serena. And now after Nicole's hideous choking fest yesterday Venus is gonna beat Ivanovic and Henin both straight sets.

And why do you think Nicole wouldn't choke against Venus too...?

for Nicole would be possible to defeat Venus in two sets so no need for choking

Considering Nicole got embarassed by Justine on grass just about 2 weeks ago, that is a bold statement.

Nicole can't beat Venus on grass, nor anywhere else!!

She's soooo overrated on this board

Pffffff, whatever I consider Ana a much tougher opponent for Venus than Nicole. Nicole has big weapons but really doesn´t know how and when to use them effectively and is mentally not stable when it comes to closing matches out. Ana however can do more with a ball IMO and with the exception of the RG final fights well in big matches. I dont´t think that Nicole would have beaten Venus on grass, this is not clay people.

I think both Nicole and Ana are tough opponents so I don't get this thread either.

For some reason I think Nicole finds it much more difficult to move on grass - getting down to the balls and such, because of her height or her proportions.

Re: Venus should send Vaidisova a thank-you note for the 2007 Wimbledon trophy

1. I dont agree with you that Nicole is one of the 2 best chances to beat Venus on grass. I think Justine and Mauresmo have better chances as well.

2. Nicole Vaidsova has choked at various points in her 2 slam semis. In the 2006 French Open semifinal with Svetlana Kuznetsova she choked trying to finish off the first set vs Serena Williams of this year Australian Open semis. So who is to say she would not have choked if she even able to give herself an opportunity to close out the set or match in her 3rd slam semifinal?
