Bashing with quotes to back it up.

So often we get bashing on this board about this player being this or that, but rarely especially when people bash Venus, can they back up thier claims w/a quote. For example I've read countless post claiming the sisters(Venus and Serena) trash thier opponents, but have yet to see Venus quoted.


Example

"Maybe it's because of a lack of formal education" Serena Williams dogging out Martina Hingis



Venus... "????????????"

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Don't hold your breath, Da forehand. Venus does not have time for petty shit.

Those who lump Venus and Serena together probably; can't tell the difference between the two(you know what that means), are too lazy to make the distinction, or they just don't care.

venus had the courage to call tauziat better then steffi even when that's true, there are things that should not be said

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

Dava, is that considered bashing? And who was that comment directed to? I'd be interested to know what prompted Venus to say that.

Well it sort of makes sense. It's like the Queen of England right? She is always composed, and regal and polite. If people ask the Queen of England: Is your Majesty comfortable? She won't say: yeah, I'm chilling !! She'll say: But of course.

Well, Venus is the Queen of tennis. She is polite and sticks to the protocol: no bashing. And people bow to her.

VENUS WILLIAMS

Queen of WTAWORLD, Queen of Tennis.
