Exclamation Rumor: Venus Threatened To Leave AO If Match Was Moved To Vodafone

I read on Bonnie D. Ford's ESPN AO blog that there was a rumor going around that Venus threatened to leave the AO grounds if her match was moved to Vodafone Arena. In her press conference, Serena said the rumor was not true.

Venus Williams
Serena Williams
Vania King, Sloane Stephens
Michael Joseph Jackson|1958-2009|RIP King of Music

Whitney Elizabeth Houston|1963-2012|RIP Queen of Music

LOL, this is getting a little out of hand.

Re: Rumor: Venus Threatened To Leave AO If Match Was Moved To Vodafone

Venus would not have withdrawn for the tournament over switching courts.

If it was true, she really is over dramatic. Its not that serious.

Lizchris because Venus is your favorite player I wish you would learn something from her.

"But, you know, all this hearsay, I don't deal with that."

If she hasn't mentioned it, it didn't happen. Now stop trying to stir up shit and grow up.

In this case I would rather kill the messenger because your ass should know better after all the stuff that Venus has said in the last couple of days.

I don't see the point of being a fan of someone if you can't even respect the things that the player says.

Re: Rumor: Venus Threatened To Leave AO If Match Was Moved To Vodafone

Venus wouldn't be that silly.

Q. You can verify that for us, though, there was absolutely no threat from Venus to leave the tournament?

SERENA WILLIAMS: There was no threat. I don't know where these stories come from. But I find them quite hilarious. Yeah, I'm always looking for the next headline: 'Venus Threatens to Leave the Tournament.'

Honestly, it's so funny.

Then I guess you are threatning to kill Bonnie D. Ford?

No because she's not a Venus fan and you are and your ass should know better.

Re: Rumor: Venus Threatened To Leave AO If Match Was Moved To Vodafone

Oh, so when Serena says it didn't happen, then it didn't happen? K.

I fully believe this to be possible. Why else would they have been arguing for a long time about it?

Here's what happened: Official tells them they're going to play on Vodafone. Stuck-up bitch feels offended because of racism/sexism/whatever and says she's leaving because she's the fucking Venus Williams, while Sania stands by and watches the proceedings in amazement.

Official actually doesn't give a damn about Venus leaving or not, but feearing uproar from the politically correct crowd and rabid Williams fans, he finally gives in.

Re: Rumor: Venus Threatened To Leave AO If Match Was Moved To Vodafone

If any of those rumours were true, then the commentators would have had a field day during her Domachowsha match. Instead it was nothing but praises from Carillo about how well Vee handled the situation and took another stand for women and the game, and how Vee had become such an eloquent spokesperson of whom she is so proud of. No mention of any threat in Venus' press conference either. So let it go!! Let it go. Some people are always trying to find smoke where there is no fire.

Venus and Serena.....2012 Grand Slam Champions!
The Greatest Ever Grand Slam Team, Does It Again!!!!

And It's Not Over Yet...Just Wait....Wait.
