What did Venus mean in her blog ?

When she said she wanted to call Serena to find out "why she won so hard" in Germany yesterday.

Venus thought Serena's 7-5,6-2 was a 'hard win'
that score line seems like a routine win to me.

She was up 4-1 in the first and then blew it. I guess that's what she means. Mostly a joke I think about it being a hard win.

Re: What did Venus mean in her blog ?

well i also wondered it esp blowing a 4/1 lead against the kind of opponent she palyed. I guess we could also onder the same about her match agaainst molik. For some reason alicia has found her A game against the williams the last two times she played them.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Re: What did Venus mean in her blog ?

yea that's what I found odd - V was almost saying "how can you let Vakulenko get so close in the score" as if anything other than a 6-1, 6-1 victory was subpar playing.

But, Venus herself almost loses a SET to a very subpar Molik.

Serena should be one calling V saying "WTF?"

Those who read understood what Miss Venus was saying to her sister.. knows she was telling her to win... she doesn't have to go for a beat down....

I've learned that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

I've learned that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

I've learned that either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I've learned that sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I've learned that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them, and less to do with how many years you have lived.

I've learned that you shouldn't be so eager to find out a secret. It could change your life forever.

But she IS that tacky to sarcastically mock Zuzana Ondraskova ? Saying it was a hard win ?

Did Venus mention the oppenents name???.... I think not ... Im not on this board all day as you can see ive been a member for many years and hardly post on here. I simply was commenting b/c the comments being made were INCORRECT. It sounds to me like you have nothing better to do than attack a true statement maybe you need to find something better to do

Re: What did Venus mean in her blog ?

Okay, not necessary to start a disagreement. I personally took it as Venus comparing her sister's first win (0 and 0) with her second, which was much harder. But whatever.

This was a Wednesday entry. Serena vs Vakulenko took place when it was Thursday morning in Tokyo.
