Venus Has To Be Devastated

FOUR Grandslams in a row

Lost

And in the last two, the match point was brought up by a Double Fault.

I hope this is the straw that breaks the camels back

But Congrats Serena on completing the Serena Slam

If you were her what would you to?

I'd get a new, one-sided coach
specifically an Australian who can teach me how to serve

she needs a new coach.
she needs a new second serve.
she needs a better net game. improved volleys.
she needs to add slices and spins and lobs.

THIS MUST BE DONE OR SHE IS FINISHED!

I almost wish kim won the semi!

I agree cybelle, she needs a new coach. I knew that serve was going to let her down. Untill that improves, Serena will win all the matches they play. It is very sad.

GOOD LUCK

Venus
Serena

Venue is not even working with Richard anymore. I think she is hitting with someone else. If she could just work out the kinks in her second serve she will be okay. That's basically what lost her the match tonight. Serena was too good tonight, I thought she would be tired or something but she raised the level up. Venus level was high also, but in the end the second serve did her in.

It really is

You just cant have the same coach for 2 players

She needs to tell Anna that shes hopeless and steal Harold for a player that has talent

But seriously, I think that she should get someone to completely re-do her serve. She should pull out of everything untill the clay court season and just focus 100% on that Serve, because if Venus serve was where Serena's is, Venus would win everytime they play

I'm devastated myself. I just cannot believe it. Serena was playing so badly this tournament until the end of the semis where she came up on Kimmy. I thought for sure Venus had it, but Serena proved me wrong.

If Venus is devestated, then it's Venus's fault. She always seems to leave her heart and soul on the opposite side of the net when she's playing her sister. A totally different person when she's playing everybody else. Her emotional support for Serena instead of for herself is her Achilles Heel.

Dammitt, Venus!!!
