The recent NASDAQ-100 loss by VENUS to Shaugnessy seems to be just what the oldest Willaims deserved at this time. As one of the more loyal fans of VENUS, I am sometimes a little disheartened by her, at times, laissez-faire attitude towards her tennis career.
VENUS would not be able to play tennis forever, even if that was her desire, which it certainly is not, but it would do her good stead to put a maximum effort towards this activity, because she will, at most, only be able to be on top of the tour for 4-5 years at the very most.
While VENUS was selecting Louis the XIV furniture to go in her clients homes, Meghann was pumping iron in Arizona, instead of finally working out the technical chinks in her troublesome serve, she was picking out the right pattern, color and material for some rich guys drapes. While Meghann was doing her daily 5 mile runs and working on her overall game. I hope that VENUS was very happy with the imported Italian china that she purchased during the time that she could have finally fine tuned her erratic forehand.
Well, I guess having a classically styled sitting parlor is much more fullfilling than getting to the finals of the 5th largest tournament in the world and defeating her sister or whomever else she would happen to face in that encounter.
