will the pressure get to venus to tie marti?

i think venus realises that if she wins the us open she will tie marti in grand slam titles. i think that the pressure of tieing marti and beating serena will get to venus and venus will lose and serena will tie venus in grand slam titles. gosh marti hasn't won a grand slam in four years and she's still second after moni for grand slam titles.

so what? Steffi has retired for years, and she still has much much much more grand slams than Marti. And I am sure even Marti plays her butt off, she won't even get close.

pressure, why would martina hingis be pressure for venus? why would the number of grand slam titles even be on her mind? why would hingis even come up over the weekend? there is no reason. this is something that would come up in a statistics head. someone that thinks about the numbers. she has a good record, she has played in 7 grand slams, and has won 4 of them. she got the better part of that deal. the only pressure she will face is if they tell her before the final (hopefully she will get there) that if she wins she becomes number 1 again!

Unlike Marti Jennifer Amelie or Justine I really don't think any of them crosses Venus' mind...unless she's scheduled to play them.

Sorry

Venus isn't even thinking about Martina. She's no doubt thinking about keeping her service percentage high, her unforced error rate down, and not letting Amelie do to her as she did to Jenn.

Hingis is the last thing on Venus' mind. In fact, Hingis is becoming the last thing on a lot of people's mind as far as tennis goes.

i honestly can't see why Venus would factor Hingis into her thinking. actually the very idea makes me LOL!!! the only thing that will make Venus bite the inside of her cheeks is the knowledge that Serena has been spanking her butt on a regular basis recently!

In fact, these stats matter only to ex-players or media people, or even us....but to someone who feels the hunger and thrives for challenges, Venus is practicing on dealing with the Slices, dices, lobs tactics of Mauresmo.

She definitely will be very aggressive with her forehand, and the first serve. Day or night time matches won't keep this girl down. I predict a 125mph serve!!!!

Only if matching Martina was some sort of monumental feat like the grand slam. But to be honest, compared to the all time greats, 5 slams is peanuts. I'd think Serena would be more nervous trying to complete the FO-W-USO sweep.

Venus is thinking about her own game. She is not going to measure herself up to Martina. She is thinking beyond Martina. Venus game is improving, Hingis's is not, In fact it is looking worse.

Now if Venus wins #5 I think it will be Martina thinking about Venus. She'll think dayum I haven't won a slam in 4 years.
