Venus will be back. There's very little to keep her from beating at least 4 of the top 10 any day. She didn't play well today, wasn't really allowed to.

And at fans of players who have done victory dances toward the net to shake hands, crop walked, have gotten in the faces of far inferior players and even lines judges, and openly mocked Peak Pierce calling Sharapova's double fist pump after an ace on match point vile or classless. Get real and move on.

Renatards getting pissed because of Maria's supposed overreaction and bitchy attitude "for a third round routine".


Had she lost today, you would all be overreacting and bitchy in the result thread right now. So stop criticizing a behaviour you would yourself have.

I think some Venus fans suffer from memory loss.
She's had some of the most OTT reactions to winning matches I've ever seen.

Bottom line, who cares?

Maria fans, accept that it was obnoxious. K thnx and move on, so that everyone with a set of eyes can agrees.
Wasnt classy but is a sign she respects Venus though

Anyway pretty good from Maria. The fight wasnt there at the beginning from Venus but she made Maria really earn the win in the latter stages.

Maria was playing as beautifully as she always looks. Enchanting! Poor Venus, she was just... in the way.

Come on, keep it up Maria!

But that's okay, as we are simply stating our opinions.
Serena has had her moments for sure, but Serena wasn't playing this match, so....?

If Venus is who most view as a representative of WTA "class", then when comparing Venus and Sharapova in this match says a lot.
Sorry, but Sharapova was over-the-top in this instance, and that isn't what I'd call endearing or attractive, nor representative of a champion.
I'm sure it's nice to Sharapova fans that they got a kick out of that sad show; and now hopefully they will lighten up on Serena.
Though after reading the responses here, I seriously doubt that.
I just found it really hypocrite coming from a Serena fan. Serena is overreacting on everything and I get it, she's intense and I respect that. It's just weird to have different opinions on similar reactions towards different players. That's all I'm saying, now if you find that normal, it's all good. That's your "opinion" but I like to treat everyone the same, personally.

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!

The moderation on this forum

WilliamsStans complaining about OTT post-match celebrations?

Take one of several seats



Phenomenal performance from Maria. Absolutely stunning until the slight blimp at the end.

It was clear how much respect she had for Venus in her intensity throughout the match. She's a great champion. Shame some of her fans don't have half as much respect as she does.
