Venus Fan, But I Don't Want HerTo Win....

... Against Serena in the final if Serena Does make it.

Venus performance throughout the tournament has been disappointing, and it would be travesty if she keeps playing like this and somewhow beat Serena.

Of course, I would not mind if Venus plays well to beat her sister, but if recent history is a predictor, she'll probably play a crappy match.

If Serena makes the final, she would have won 4 matches in her way to the final, to Venus just 2.

I don't care about Venus' form, I want her to win.
Every match if she is playing like shit or playing amazing, I want her to win.

How can you say this? If you are a true Venus fan, what does it matter how she is playing? I want her to win EVERY single match EVERY time she goes out there regardless of her form or whatever.

Venus needs this more than Serena does, both in terms of confidence and ranking/points.

TT Singles Current Ranking: #2 (CH Ranking: #1)
Titles(10): Singapore YEC 2015 Eastbourne 2015, Dubai 2015, Linz 2014, Cincinnati 2014, Wimbledon 2014, Marrakech 2014, Quebec City 2012, Cincinnati 2011
TT Doubles Current Ranking: #23 (CH Ranking: #8)
Titles(8): Zhuhai 2015, Stuttgart 2015, Sofia TOC 2014, Cincinnati 2014, Bucharest 2014, Tokyo 2012 (w/New_balls_please), Stanford 2012, Carlsbad 2011, Osaka 2011 (w/rvugt)

Re: Venus Fan, But I Don't Want HerTo Win....

Venus needs the win more than Serena, If Venus can get it, she should take it. Didn't Brad Gilbert write a book about this sort of thing? It doesn't have to be pretty a win is a win.

I just feel it would not be fair to Serena who has won every match decisevely, for Venus to play like she did today and still win the tournament.

Against any other player, I'll take it in any way Venus can get it.

Infiniti2001, there was really no need to bad rep me on this thread.

And you did not even write a post to voice your opinion like everyone else.

LMAO@you calling her out

But boy you are crazy. I would never root for Serena to lose, especially if Venus was her opponent. Shame on you!

Calm down...
You are not reading carefully.

I said "if she plays like she did today".

If Venus plays well and wins, I have no problem with it.
