Venus Williams: Reinventing herself??

The now frequent fist pumps, the ongoing illusion-style dresses, and from what I saw in her first round against Sara Errani even has gotten sassy and very girly much like her sister.

So is Venus Williams reinventing herself at the tender age of 30?

Matthew 14:28 Then Peter called to him, “Lord, if it’s really you, tell me to come to you, walking on the water.”
29 “Yes, come,” Jesus said.
I am a pretty big Veeliver of Venus Williams, but I'm a FOLLOWER of

Jesus Christ!!

Is there a problem with reinventing yourself?

I would love to see her reinvent her second serve for the better.

*Federer*Nadal*Djokovic*Tsonga*Murray*Monfils*Gulb is*Young*Wawrinka*Mirnyi*

I am a massive fan of her oncourt persona. I think she is cool and friendly and fierce. Sometimes I regard over exuberance as arrogance.

I would also like to see her reinvent EleVen as an athletic apparel company that actually sells athletic apparel.

Re: Venus Williams: Reinventing herself??

No.
But I like her new insideout forehand.

As for outfits. I think it is time to go back to her classic dresses.
At her age now, it makes more sense than the skin showing stuff she has been favoring the last couple of years.
