Thumbs down The Most Shocking Quote I Have Ever Seen

David Beckham - 12:29pm Jan 25, 2003 PDT
After losing the Oz final, Venus Williams said the following: "The first thing I'll do is go to McDonalds. I want my cheeseburger with French fries and a soda."

The quote was taken from this site: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/tenn...03/2693967.stm

First of all, I want to say I have been indifferent to the Williams sisters for many years now. I can honestly say I am not biased one way or the other. But what in heaven's name is Venus thinking when she says something like this. She calls herself a "tennis player"???? More importantly, this quote signifies how Venus is growing complacent with the state of her game. It is clear she is content with being in second-place. She is clearly not willing to change her game in anyway to defeat Serena. Any respectable athlete has a desire to strive for something better. Venus doesn't have this desire. I can only conclude she is not a respectable athlete.

--------------------

I cannot believe someone said that. Was she paid?

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

err i think she meant after making the final of a slam and nearly winning shes earned herself a treat. Its not that big of a sin, and wont harm her unless she incoporates it as a staple part of her diet. I agree that shes obviously being paid to promote it tho

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

after that hard fought match (Venus did most of the running from side to side), she definetely wants to relax. Venus is a simple lady and this is the reason why she is a happy person. Unlike others like JenCap, who after her loss would go smoke, drink, etc.

Madame Oracene Williams could certainly teach the French & Belgian crowds on how to upgrade their respective primitive behaviours during a tennis match.

Why not a quarterpounder with cheese and a LARGE fries? Maybe a nice chocolate shake as well. She's a big girl, and she's been working hard.

Go, Venus!

(LMAO, what am I saying?)
