Why does Venus play like garbage whenever Little Sis loses?

Usually when Serena loses in a tournament and Venus is still alive, she plays like utter garbage in her next match.

For all those who will say I'm making an excuse.. just look at today's match or the many matches where Venus lost the same day Serena did or the day after.

Does she just not care? Is it an emotional thing? It's really inexplicable but it's been happening for almost a decade now.

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.

She looks like she doesn't want to be out there. Or she's just gassed.

Disappointing that she's not showing up for this match though.

As am i... She's had 2 days of rest so if she can't pull it together she may want/need to retire after this year...

Bitch needs to retire from singles. I love her, but after this season become a doubles specialist.

people are so weird. clearly it has nothing to do with serena's loss.. venus just hasn't shown any signs of life since 2010.

It's happened way too many times for me to consider it merely coincidence.

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.

Re: Why does Venus play like garbage whenever Little Sis loses?

Do people realize this is clay + she's playing Radwanska + most importantly she has a disease than can zap her of energy without any warning with few to no ways to fight it. This is why I've never understood people getting so hyped up in Miami. The problem with Venus is she can have a bad day with her disease at any time, so days where she looks lethargic and out of it are going to keep coming. I don't think Serena has anything to do with it.

It's true, it's like she's the little sister. Just do doubles, singles is clearly not happening for you honey.

Re: Why does Venus play like garbage whenever Little Sis loses?

Over the years, a small part of me has silently wondered whether they "cycle" in tandem and so have to play through overlapping bad days at the office.

....

Someone is quietly turning back the clock...to them bulldozer dayz...

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.
