Emotional time, Feel sad for Venus and yet happy for Serena but sad for their grandma's death.

Oracene's mother passed away in December right before Christmas. The funeral was on Christmas Eve.

What a sad mixture of pain and victory for the family!

The funeral was Christmas eve?? So that wasn't why Oracene left the stadium, right?

thank you Jovon. in other words, Oracene left bec she couldn't handle the tension of the match. for once she lost her composure. and can you blame her?

so did Venus bring this up to try once again to steal Serena's thunder? like she did at RG with the whole picture taking stunt?

typical...
