Re: Would Anyone like Venus Williams to take over Stacey McAllister's WTA Job ?
Love her, but no.
Taking a stand is one thing, managing a business is another. Eleven, Jamba Juice, and her interior design company credentials don't exactly scream entrepreneurial prodigy to me.
There are 2 kinds of leadership.
There is the technocrat, stale but competent doing the same thing.
And then there is the visionary, the inspirational leader, the idea person.
It may be counter intuitive given Venus personality, but she has proven to think out of the box; always looking for ways to forge ahead.
That came across loud and clear during the equal fight. When things seems to stall, Venus will always find ways to retool and restart.
