I have no doubt that if she continues to maintain her health, she should be back in the Top 15 by the end of the season.
I agree, her tennis skills did show today.
But she needs her body to cooperate in order to show those skills at their optimum.
And you never know when her body or psychological disposition will let her down.
For example, in her first match today, she had total control, then lost, losing the 2nd set as a result.
In the 2nd match, her game was close to Venus of old.
Serving well, hitting sizzling ground stroke, going at the net, being decisive with positive body language throughout.
When she serves for each of the set, she did not falter.
Tomorrow, nobody knows which Venus will show up, this what her health condition has done to her... you just don't know how she will feel day-to-day.
