If Venus plays every match ...

...the way she played the Us Open QF and SF, she will win more majors, and be a main rival to Henin. She HAS to continue to come into the net. Henin was just awesome on her passing shots today.

I agree.
Overall people fail to realize how close Venus was from winning this Usopen.
She is hitting the ball cleanly and playing with heart and moving well. She is definetly a top 3 player ATM, in fact for me she is the second best player in the world right now.

Re: If Venus plays every match ...

YEs! Yes! Yes! I said this in another thread. She came to net 55 times against Jelena & 35 against Henin. I PRAY she keeps this game. I enjoyed Venus this tournament more than ever even with the loss. Such aggression!!!

Re: If Venus plays every match ...

Me too, it ii the reason I was not too dissappointed after she lost. It has been close to three years since we saw Venus play this well and CONSISTENTLY. I am so happy for her, good things still ahead.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Agreed. Justine was just too good today. If you think about it, this is really the first time Venus has played a Hall of Fame level player at their peak since her comeback. This match was a good meter for her. It will definitely serve notice of what it's going to take to get back to the top.

JA ME KA IS THE GOAT!!!

Re: If Venus plays every match ...

I was definitely impressed with Venus' game. I expected her to hit many more unforced errors off of Jankovic's and Henin's gets, but she usually played it quite calm. The thing is, is that I don't think Henin will be able to play every match the way she played Serena and Venus this week. That's why I think this is the beginning of a truly exceptional rivalry.

Let them eat cake.

Re: If Venus plays every match ...

i can see her winning 2 or 3 wimbledon titles before she retires.



Caroline Garcia ● Ana Ivanović ● Sabine Lisicki ● Sorana Cirstea ● Samantha Stosur ● Julia Görges

Re: If Venus plays every match ...

yeah, its really fun to see venus in that kind of mood. playing well like this and putting her heart and mind to it. when she came back i didnt enjoy her matches too much except maybe charleston semi against jj, because it was full of drama and jj was involved . now there's more entertaining match-ups to come up again i hope she plays the YEC

p.s. still doesnt make me a fan of hers. its just that it mixes up the tour well in a positive way.

(3)The stars have aligned perfectly for the upset of the 21st century. All the best Garbine
(4) There is no path to victory for Williams.Keys wins in straight easy sets.
