Nope, Ree was just confused for some reason she never came out fighting and Venus confidence was rock bottom after little sis went plunging out.

Cant be easy playing the last match on court not knowing what is going on in your camp Well tried!

I love both of them, but it seemed that Venus wanted to lose so she could fly back to USA on the first flight in the morning.

only idiots 'take the temperature' of American professional tennis players during the Clay Court Season...

...only idiots who know very little about tennis.

Start these threads after Wimbledon.

Re: Anyone had the feeling today that Venus and Serena are losing the passion of tenn

i think shit happens...

that's what happened.. no one will win forever.. it's not like srebotnik will beat serena everytime from now on.. we all know what kind of player srebotnik is, so I think that was an fatality..

i'm sad but not worried.. they'll still keep beating top players and vice-versa so that's it


serena
townsend × rezaï × lisicki × vesnina × aiava
keys × mladenovic × osaka × broady × jankovic

^^^agreed. i don't think that completely lost their passion they just have to decide wat days they want to bring it to court. not so often lately.

Re: Anyone had the feeling today that Venus and Serena are losing the passion of tenn

Maybe a little bit, but really they are trying to play more tournaments these days. I think that they are not used to playing more events so that could be a factor in burnout. Let's face it too. All the players are so fit and tough these days that there really are very few easy matches anymore.

Oh shut the hell up.

They both had off days and their opponents played well.

...but in reality, it's clay. Although they lost in the 3R this year, let's not forget there were only 2 other FO finalists other than them.

We all know Americans thrive on the faster surfaces anyway

Yes players ranked #5 and #8 are just useless and should retire. Dear lord you really are such a retard. And weirdly obsessed might I add.

Serena and Venus both played passionless tennis today, however there passion for tennis is very much still there and they will have plenty for to say this year.

Re: Anyone had the feeling today that Venus and Serena are losing the passion of tenn

I think Venus didn't care at all about fighting for that match, she must only looking for Wimbledon and who knows after that.

I don't think Serena lost her passion, it was just a tough day for her.

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!
Maria Sharapova~Anna Chakvetadze~Jelena Dokic~Laura Robson ~Sabine Lisicki
