Re: Blast From The Past. 1999 Lipton Final (V&S on TTC now!
This is one of my favorite Venus outfits. There is no doubt in my mind that Venus has been the best attired tennis players ever. Whoever was designing her Reebok outfits back then had a nice funky style. Her colours always used to be well combined and coordinated and suited her youth well.
Whatever happened to those threads about your fave Venus outfit? Boy, those were the days.
As for her tennis, she used to play with so much variety when she was younger. I really miss the old Venus's game. You didn't have to drag her by the nails to the net, either, and she picked up a shot almost from her shoe laces a few games ago which was so well done.
It's a fun match at times while being poor on Serena's part at other times, but it just shows how far she came to dominate the way she did. Nice choice by TTC. I've enjoyed the classic matches of late.
It's 2008 and I'm shopping for a new fave. Hell no! And Venus is still playing?
I Love You, Roger and Venus, 5-time Wimbledon Champions!
