Re: Youtube of Trophy Presentation Dubai 2009

So amazing!

The One and Only Queen


Most tennis players are girls, because they act like girls, they play like girls, and they have child-like attitudes like girls. Venus, on the other hand, does the exact opposite. She is in control of her emotions. She's graceful, gracious, strong, and fierce. She controls her own destiny. She has a business and a degree. She won't be left with just tennis memories once she calls it a day on the court.


Most tennis females are girls. Venus is a WOMAN.

Thank you for posting this. Venus is such a classy player. She really is a gem and a champion I feel mighty proud to have representing the USA.

Re: Youtube of Trophy Presentation Dubai 2009

Venus was very graceful!
What a champion!

It was commendable of them to have both the doubles and singles trophy presentation together.

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

I cannot stand David Mercer


Lovely speeches from all of them! I love Virginie's accent, and Venus was her usual graceful self, very big of her to mention Peer there.

Liezel & Aga seemed to be laughing alot about something


I do love having all the presentations at the same time, I think more tourneys should do that. It's the best way to round out the tournament as a whole in one go and congratulate everyone who was involved at the same time.

Re: Youtube of Trophy Presentation Dubai 2009

Venus got got some serious female cojones! She spoke her mind right in the organizer's faces. They smiled but I'm sure they hated what she said and hated being put on the spot like that on international TV- by a female non the less!
I think there might just not be as much in terms of appearance fees for her next year- should she want to come back and defend her title.

Oh well, it'll just have to be Spam & raman noodles for Venus that month.
