Terrible year for Venus!

Let Serena take away everything important this year.

Miami
Wimbledon
YEC

Only made QF or better at 1 slam this year.
Too many early losses.
2 losses in a row to Pavlychenkova

Very dissapointing.

Dubai title
Acapulco title
Miami and Rome SF

not so bad but could definitely have been better though

Anastasia Myskina

Re: Terrible year for Venus!

Not a great year for her, but a GS final and a Top 10 finish. So better than many of her other seasons, and that's with an injured leg for 1/4 of it.

Re: Terrible year for Venus!

Let's be honest here, yes the year, has been disappointing but Venus has still had a better year than most players on the tour will ever have.

Re: Terrible year for Venus!

Horrid year indeed, playing like GOAT in Wimbledon only to lose to Serena in straights, horrid.

And in that final she played like crap.
Venus' year was craptastic. She had her great moments: Dubai, Acapulco, Miami, Rome, RG R2 win, Wimbledon, Stanford, and then her great efforts in YEC. She should have done better IMO.

Re: Terrible year for Venus!

Serena earned her wins this year and all that was important to her. It wasn't in Venus' power to let anything go when you're up against someone that good. Venus just wasn't good enough when it mattered and not just against Serena.

Venus might as well get her mail forwarded to Serena's shadow. She's going to be there forever!

Re: Terrible year for Venus!

I don't think it was "terrible" by any means. I guess by Vee's high standards and for a player of her calibre, it would be viewed as being slightly disappointing. Obviously missing out on the Wimbledon title dulls her year quite a bit but she has been carrying a niggling knee injury since that BJK exho and no doubt it has affected her confidence. Making the YEC final has at least ended the year on a positive note.

Re: Terrible year for Venus!

Venus lacks solidity.

And that hurts big time against Serena.

She better be prepared for next year because against Kim and Justine (if level of play is there) the outcome will be the same.

This year, Venus never actually played well when it mattered.
Frustrating season.

to new beginnings.

Re: Terrible year for Venus!

Venus was smiling and sticking her tongue out during the warm up today, while early on in this match, Serena was puffing through her nose like a bull ready to charge and chanting endlessly under her breathe. Tell you everything you need to know really.

Venus' year hasn't been THAT bad, especially if you look her years since 2004. She's been patchy through out this period and this year just didn't cross the final hurdle at Wimbledon. But the fact that she's made 2 major finals this year, won 2 titles, pushed all the top player (and in form hot player always) and beaten a few means there's still plenty of hope that could improve next year.
