DEAD @ that horrible photoshop job of 05 AO Serena and 05 Wimby Venus jumping into each other.

And here you are, a black unicorn.
Mythical and mystical since the day that you were born.

And even better, the crowd is looking at the other side.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: People Magazine: Venus "Getting Back in the Game"

great article but this seems like a retrospective on Venus' career and I don't want the WS story to be over yet.

Such an inspiring read. The woman is just legendary

Btw, I really like that updated version of her AO 2011 outfit with the pink zipper down the front

Re: People Magazine: Venus "Getting Back in the Game"

who picked those 6 pics to look back at her career/life through the years? some random pic with kournikova and some players party pic with serena aren't pics i'd have picked. she has some amazing shots both on and off court over the years, shame they weren't used.

I believe Serena Richard has some say in the pics chosen, it's a family decision.

What a great read. I do have to agree that the photoshop job is hilarious. Venus looks like a giant compared to Serena

Re: People Magazine: Venus "Getting Back in the Game"

that photoshopped picture... someone needs fired

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.
