Bethanie Mattek-Sands... stuck in a time warp??

Not only does her sense of fashion suggest that she may be sent from the future, but it would seem she knows something I don't.

Mattek-Sands quotes: "This is (FO) the only Slam Venus hasn't won. I'm sure she's pretty bent on winning it."

Hmm... 2010 AO victory??

Re: Bethanie Mattek-Sands... stuck in a time warp??

One of the commentators also made a remark about RG being the only slam Venus hasn't won.

Wow I guess they all know something we don't. Venus = AO Champion!

Maybe some people still don't consider the AO to be a real slam?

Aye, there was a time that the Aussie really was the Zeppo of the Majors. In 1979, the top seed was Virginia Ruzici. I think she was ranked about 12th in the world at the time.

most players don't spend time thinking about other people's careers.

BTW, the only time VW was beaten in the final of a GS by anyone other than her sister was that time she lost the US Open to Hingis.

Similarly, SW has only lost a GS final to anyone other than her sister once, which was versus Sharapova at Wimbledon in 2004.

Well, technically Venus won all the slams already (if you include doubles)...

IF Vee wins here, I say the tour give her the AO title. I'm sure no-one would object.

yeah, because serena won it so often and after all these first round losses they probably feel embarrassed to consider the AO as a real one.

You're actually suggesting the ITF to hand her another Slam. Based on what? It's not like it's an honorary doctorate degree or something.

Yes that's what I'm suggesting. Is that a problem?
