Re: Venus' backhand?
Well.. I wish Venus would work on it more. This started happening back in 2004-2005 IMO when Venus seemed to give too much attention to her forehand which became more consistent, but her backhand deteriorated. It's still a very good shot, but you will not see her hit as many winners from it as she used to.
It's become more of a defensive shot and less of an offensive one. The forehand has become formidable, and I prefer for her to be solid off the ground on both sides, but I do miss the killer backhand she once had.
I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.
When will you learn that "pushers" never make it past the club level, let alone #1 on the WTA computer? Will it be too late?
