Venus is blogging again - this time from Acapulco

Venus Blogs From Acapulco


ACAPULCO, México - In Dubai over the weekend, Venus Williams became the first active player to win 40 singles titles on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour. Now, after more than a full day of flying, she goes for No.41 in Acapulco. The picturesque Mexican city will also be the backdrop for the legend's Sony Ericsson WTA Tour Blog this week.

Hello again everyone! I'm excited to be blogging again, this time from Acapulco!

The trip here from Dubai... oh my gosh, it was long. I didn't realize it would be that long. It took 30 hours to get here, which was my longest trip ever! But I was mentally prepared for it. I was strategic: I only slept on the first flight, and after I landed in New York, I didn't sleep until I got here. It was a winning game plan. I got a full night's sleep last night and woke up happy.

I got to Acapulco around 10 last night, opened the windows and the sea was right there. I was SO happy! Then I went to the player party, it was a White Party. But I was wearing my black warm-up suit! With a green stripe... Anyway, the party was really nice. The chicken was great - I really love meat, I just had to try it.

This morning it got even better. I went down for breakfast and I just knew it was American breakfast, I could just smell it! I smelled the pancakes and syrup. I was way too happy about it. I even took a picture of myself at breakfast - it was just ridiculous. The strange thing is, I usually can't stand breakfast! I never eat it. But I was just so happy to smell the syrup. I think it was the feeling of smelling something from back home. It was a long way from Dubai and there were so many hardships along the way, I didn't think I'd ever make it here. But I kept a positive attitude on the trip. I took it one mile at a time.

I was very busy today. I practiced first thing in the morning and had my workout, then spent the afternoon in interviews and meetings. Now I have a little free time. I'm trying not to fall asleep - that would undermine my whole success so far! I'm about to go to the training room and then I'm planning on just relaxing. I'll be playing matches every day starting tomorrow, so I'm hoping I can get into a car and just have a look around Acapulco tonight. Then I'm going to settle in here and hopefully start winning matches!

So, nothing too interesting yet, just living the dream in Acapulco!

Venus

Re: Venus is blogging again - this time from Acapulco

You can always tell when Venus is happy or not.
It usually show in photos. And from pitrure earlier, few posters expressed the fact that Venus seem really happy.

I really hope that the match play Venus gets on the red stuff in Mexico will help her to make a dent at the French Open this year.

I think it is going to be tough. But it can be done.
Clay requires too much physical output day in day out.
It is rare to have routine win like on hard court or grass.

You mean when she blogs, she does not win?
I thought it was just one time before? Where else did this happen?

Anyway, as you say, she will break the curse from this time on.

I can't believe she forgot to wish me Happy Birthday, but I forgive her (this time). Now win the title, Venus.

Yeah, i noticed that. The featured blogger usually doesn't win the tournament. Hope she breaks the curse.

The blogger curse has long been broken. At least this means Venus won't be withdrawing!

Re: Venus is blogging again - this time from Acapulco

Venus and I have something in common. We both love meat!

I love that she is not ashamed she went to a White Party wearing black. How Oprah of her.

Re: Venus is blogging again - this time from Acapulco

The last time Venus blogged, she won the tournament. I can't wait to hear about her expoloits in Mexico. Since this is her first trip, she should have some interesting observations.
