Question Something worse that Evie has commented on Venus

Don't know if this is true, but I found this at another place (<-----READ!......I FOUND AT ANOTHER PLACE, SO I DON'T KNOW IF THIS IS TRUE SO DON'T JUMP ON ME)


``She hit one volley, and I thought, 'Whoa, that's amazing!''' said Dominikovic, 4-6 this year and not even listed in the WTA Tour media guide.

If this is true, then I find Evie to be mocking Venus and acting all surprised that she can actually volley and not just bash away at the baseline.

Crikey, a tennis player with a sense of humour. Whatever next?

Perhaps she could give Jelena Dokic lessons?

Lol that's fine...but what's worse for Evie is that she is a horrible player. Seriously how many matches has this girl won this year? And how many break chances and game points did she have today?

Lol, Venus was probably playing 40% today and still defeated Evie. So Evie can mock all she wants, while Venus does all the laughing to the bank and 90+ rankings above her

I wouldn`t say Evie is a horrible player.. she has the talent to get to top 30.. She has had plenty of chances to win matches but just hasn`t taken them esspecially this year were she had a chance to take 3 matches now at one time or another..... she will learn soon...

Maybe it was a great volley and Evie was saying 'whoa' because she was in awe of how great Venus was.
Anyway Evie is talented but she'll never be a great tennis player. Shes too mentally weak and too much of a choker (she even chokes in qualie rounds against players ranked in the 600's )

Even if Evie was being sarcastic, who cares!!??? Da fact is Venus is no where near technically perfect and she sprays shots off da frame or out by a mile regularly when she is having an 'off-day.'

y r u continously noking Evie, she just lost a match, made a few TRUE comments, and den had her birthday cake. Even Venus noes some of her shots are appalling.....

Venus overcomes rough patch
Associated Press


PARIS -- Venus Williams' play was so erratic, Mom sat up and took notice.

Williams hit forehands long, short and wide. Backhands, too. And her serving? Don't ask. It was not the sort of performance she usually delivers at majors -- unless the opponent is her sibling, that is.

Instead, it was a player with a losing record and ranked 110th who briefly threatened the run of Sister Slams on Thursday in the French Open's second round. Williams got her act together in time to beat Evie Dominikovic 6-3, 4-6, 6-2.

"I can't stay at that level and still continue to do as well as I'd like to at this tournament," said Williams, seeded third. "I've got to find my balance and find it soon."

She didn't look like a player ready to retake the No. 1 ranking from younger sister Serena. Dominikovic, who won two games against Serena at Wimbledon last year, offered a comparison.

"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."

Three top women hoping to prevent a fifth consecutive all-Williams Grand Slam final won Thursday in straight sets: Kim Clijsters, Jennifer Capriati and Lindsay Davenport.

Nine U.S. women reached the third round, but just two of 13 American men did: Andre Agassi and Vince Spadea, who's never won a tournament. Two U.S. men exited, with No. 24 James Blake eliminated by Ivan Ljubicic in a match suspended the night before because of darkness. Todd Martin lost to No. 25 Tim Henman.

Williams compiled 55 mistakes through two sets and finished with 68. She had seven double faults and was broken five times, including to end the second set.

To that point, her mother, Oracene Price, had been watching from the guest box with her chin on her hand. She suddenly straightened up to watch the third set, as if she were thinking, "Well, maybe I ought to be concerned."

Her daughter was. After closing one game with an errant backhand, Williams tapped her racket against her head several times -- about the biggest display of emotion she allows.

She arrived in Paris rusty, having last played May 4, when she didn't finish a match because of a stomach muscle injury. Still, Williams plays big points at big tournaments brilliantly, which is why she owns four major titles. Set aside losses to Serena in the past four finals, and Williams is 44-1 at Slams since Wimbledon in 2001.

Williams won Thursday because she kept conjuring up groundstroke winners, 31 in all.

"She hit one volley, and I thought, 'Whoa, that's amazing!"' said Dominikovic, 4-6 this year and not even listed in the WTA Tour media guide.

One particularly strong backhand knocked the racket out of Dominikovic's hand and into a courtside advertising sign with a "Clunk!"

Evie sad to say isn't top 30 material.
Choking everytime a point was to
be made isn't good enough. If you look at
your top 30 types- they usually are steady
as a rock, smart , confident, and the EU's
are low. I don't even think Evie can cut it in
the top 30-40 bracket.
This was an awful match.
Don't know why Evie looked uncomfortable
and so nervous even when she was winning
the rallies? Venus was falling apart. This
was one the worst matches I've seen from her
in the last couple of years!!!

Thank god it was over.
Venus fans things can only improve. I can't see
her playing this badly for the rest of her matches.
