Congratulations is in order for Venus Williams and Jonas Bjorkman...

... who have both made the finals of their respective tournaments this week.

What a fantastic coincidence!

True, but I fail to see the exciting connection between Fed and Kim.

Jonas and Venus share a special bond.

Jonas seems to have been in a tremendous form since he made that remark. He made a semifinal showing in his first tournament of the season, became the hero helping sweden beat Brazil n this week he's made the finals...wow Jonas..
to those who claimed you didnt know who the fuck Jonas was, it's a good time to get to know him.

Well gomaggie, they didn't just claim to not know who he was, but somehow through their complete disregard of him they also learned that he is apparently a "nobody" of a player. Which was highly amusing, to say the least.

Indeed Experimentee. The week would have been ideal for me too, if only Justine could have found a way to beat Kim again.

Jonas was there by default. Venus earned her finals spot and her
tournament championship with a terrific win over a top rate opponent.

Well, the "coincidence"/"exciting connection" ends there as Venus defeat Kim 6-2 6-4 and Jonas succumbs to a 6-2 7-6 loss to Roger Federer. Unless you notice the "coincidence" that the first set scores were the same.

Ridiculous thread.

Well eta psi, Queen of ridiculous threads, I'm flattered to see that you have noticed.

Uxobi, Jonas wasn't there by total default, he did have to win a few matches to get there. It's not his fault that Escude couldn't play the semifinals.

Well really, just about any player indoors will recieve a butt whipping from Roger when he's playing well. Even Hewitt would if Roger remembered to bring his brain along when they played.

Jonas should have practiced with Venus. I'm sure she would have been more than gracious in giving him some pointers.
