Evie Disses Venus In Post Match Press Conference

I know this was posted in a similar post, but I want to go further into what Evie said about Venus in her post match conference and this is what she said:

``I was happy I was playing Venus and not Serena,'' she said. ``Serena's a lot better and doesn't miss as much. Venus is more erratic.''

I might remind Evie that it is Venus who has the "W" next to her name after today's match and not her. Just because Venus played worse today than she played on Monday, Evie shouldn't make Venus out to be like she isn't a top ten player because Lord knows she isn't.

Oh please. Where did she say that Venus does not belong in the top ten? She just said that Venus is more erratic when compared to Serena and I don't even think that is a question, it is a fact IMO. Yeah, big diss there. Damn we all must cuss Evie out the next time we see her.

In what way exactly is the truth a "dis"? Serena has been better and less erratic than Venus over the last year.

She didn't bash or dis Venus at all. What she said is unfortunately the truth.

Last year, Venus lost nine times, the second lowest loss total of any other female player. Other than her sister, she lost to Monica Seles, Kim Clijsters (twice), Maggie Maleeva and the now retired Sandrine Testud. I'll add she won seven titles, allbeit 6 Tier II titles and a Tier III title (only Serena won more titles). This year, she already has one title and reached the final of a Grand Slam. Even though she is not doing as good in 2003 as she did in 2002, she is still in the top five, which she has not left since 1998. For someone who is erractic, that is pretty consistent to me. No other player in the current top five can boast that.

all she said is true regardless of the outcome of the match...

what if she lost to Capriati and said:``I was happy I was playing Jennifer and not Serena,'' she said. ``Serena's a lot better and doesn't miss as much. Jennifer is more erratic.''

WOULD THERE BE THE SAME WILLIAMS FANS OUTCRY???

so leave Evie alone.

So?


Notice Evie said, COMPARED TO SERENA, Venus is more erractic.


Yes, I am a big Venus fan.

What she said was in fact true......

But I just don't see the point in bringing it up, I agree with the starter of this thread that maybe Evie's comment was meant to insult Venus.

I mean duh Serena has won the last 4 grand slams and she's number 1 in the world....why bring it up???

I think the creater of the thread is just trying to balance out the non-williams fan outcry

You know damn well that if she played Capriati, Seran's name would not have come up, so the analogy is a very poor one. We know Jennifer has been erratic since winning the AO in 2002; she went from number one to number seven.

it doesn't prove that Evie lied, bashed Venus or something else.

You really reading too much into what she said. Chill out.

I don't see why I have to chill out. I just thought that what she said was a diss, considereing that her opponent is a former Grand Slam champion and she doesn't even have a .500 record this year.
