Re: Worst Venus loss at Roland Garros?

no. not in terms of how she played and not in terms of the quality of her opponents.
like ESPN commentators kept saying she's played more than her fair share of stinkers at RG.

Re: Worst Venus loss at Roland Garros?

I think losing to Schett was her worst or maybe Sesil, but she made QF so that kinda makes it less of a bad loss

Re: Worst Venus loss at Roland Garros?

Yes, it was one of her worst losses but not her last. She did play like shit but only because woman across the nest took away her game and out smarted, out hit and just was the superior player.

I actually think Serena's loss was much more degrading and humiliating. I’m sure thats why she said she didn’t want to be there. My God, a straight set loss to a club level c player.

no she wasn't. It was because of that match Wimbledon went to 32 seeds. Schett was like top 20.

huh? she was no. 20 or something.

i voted for the schett match, because it was a first round. but for the performance only, it was certainly against karatantcheva, one of the worst matches i've ever seen venus play.

Re: Worst Venus loss at Roland Garros?

Karatantcheva, of course. A grown woman losing to a 15-year-old girl is bad enough, but a PREGNANT 15-year-old girl?
