Re: Will Venus Williams ever win a singles title again?

This is something no one really knows. With her talent she is capable of winning anything but with her illness her body may not support her desire to play her best. If Venus and her team have successfully come up with a plan that sustains her energy and endurance anything is possible. It is still too premature to tell because she has only played a few tournaments and I don't think we have seen what she is fully capable of yet because it appears that she wants to ease into her grove and not over do it.

One thing for sure, I am just going to enjoy the ride win or lose. Because it is great to see a legend like Venus still playing and drawing interest for womens tennis.

Re: Will Venus Williams ever win a singles title again?

She is definitely going to win a singles title. You can see it in her groundstrokes that she is close to coming back.

Slam? Tough. Her best shot is probably this upcoming Wimbledon but Serena is on fire, hard to see Venus beating Serena (or Pironkova).

Her last singles championship on tour was back in 2010 at Abierto Mexico Telcel in Acapulco. (2 Years Ago)

Her Best showing at a Major recently was back in 2010 when she made the Semifinals at the US Open and lost to eventual champion Kim Clijsters.

Stop living the Past.

Serena is toast once you made her hit more than 4 balls

Great thread . Almost as good as bumping the "All William's final" thread.

Re: Will Venus Williams ever win a singles title again?

she gets that serve going and has some luck she can win indoors - or if she meets Baby Sis in the Wimbledon final. you know if they both make it again, Papa Williams will mandate that it's Vee's turn.

Re: Will Venus Williams ever win a singles title again?

Venus is regaining form and her best surface is approaching, but it will still be extremely difficult for her to take either Wimbledon or the OG. An in-form Serena would be too much of an obstacle to overcome, although I can see her being able to beat pretty much anyone else on grass, minus Pironkova.

As for a singles title, it's just a matter of time Although I don't even think that is her priority from the look of things. I got the impression that she just wants to earn a few points at tournaments, improve her ranking and qualify for the Olympics.

Re: Will Venus Williams ever win a singles title again?

The tour is stronger than in the last few years. Now we have Serena, Sharapova, Azarenka and a few more playing good, and what's even more important, they seem to be consistent.

Of course, we need to see what is going to happen with her health and game first. At this point, I'd be happy with MM. That would mean her body held up well.

I think so. She may of lost but the way she was hitting against Sharapova was impressive, the most sting she's had off the ground since she came back.

Of course she'll win a title even if it's just a small one.
