What I believe about Venus - video added

I strongly believe that Venus is not interested in winning any other majors but Wimbledon. This is her goal until she retires in the next four or five years. And by god she's going to do it. I remember when she was a little girl she said "I want to win more Wimbledons than any man or woman", and that's what she's shooting for if she stays health.

Re: What I believe about Venus

1. How dare you question her interests, just because she doesn't win the other slams, doesn't mean she doesn't want them and isn't interested
2. She is playing for 4 more years, so she can play 2012 Olympics which is on grass and win another medal.
3. Grass suits her game more than the other surfaces.
4. If she is winning slams and you're a fan, you shouldn't be complaining

Re: What I believe about Venus

maybe she's MOSTLY intrested in wimbledon but i disagree with that fact that she's not intrested in other grandslams. every player wants to win itt all.
maybe she enjoys it more on grass because it suits her game more.

Re: What I believe about Venus

If that was the case she could just not enter any other tournaments and ask for WCs every year?

Re: What I believe about Venus

Like I said what I believe is that Wimbledon is her top priority, not to say that she is not going to try to win the others, but I believe her focus will always be the most prestigious major of all Wimbledon.

Since when cant more than one person share the same view?

The OP made a stupid point and then tried backtracking while attempting to make it look like that was what was intended all along.

Your post states nothing knew that we didnt already believe?

Re: What I believe about Venus

Thats the most ridiculous thread for a few days, and that is saying something!

Quote:
I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.

You would be foolish to believe such a thing.

Re: What I believe about Venus

Well, clearly, she takes Wimbledon more seriously than the FO. In her third rd loss against Panetta(sp?), Venus was playing in pitch dark when the other matches on the other courts were called due to darkness. She was playing terribly, and she couldn't see the ball. She stayed and finished the match, and Panetta won.

Venus was on the first thing smoking to London after that match.

-one of those "bad" Williams fans that everyone keeps talking about

Re: What I believe about Venus - video added

She said if the only title she won was the one on the English lawns she'd be fine w/ that.

I think she wants Wimbledon the most and the others she wants as well but I guess not as badly as she does WImbledon.
