yeah.....the injured Venus who hasn't played for months is going to come out of nowhere and win the USO! Why you ask, is this possible? Cause she's black! and on this board, if your black, then you have the powers of a god....

What the fuck is your problem? Who said anything about race in this post? BTW, Venus came back from any injury to win Wimbeldon in 2000, so it isn't like she can't do it.

you don't have to say anything about race.....it's quite obvious in MOST (not all) of the sister's fans that all they care about is the sister's skin color and that's why they like them and for that reason only, and if you believe anything other then that, you're deluded

What´s the problem?! If Venus is healthy she´s a 90 % chance of winning the Open...no need for match practice. Who´s gonna beat a healthy Venus on hardcourts?! Kim" I can´t serve and don´t know how to close out matches" Clijsters?! Justine" I only just started learning how to play on hardcourts and besides I´m afraid of Venus" Henin?! Pluuuuzzzzz!!!!

Venus could be blue and shed still kick ass

I am a Williams fan and I will speak for myself. I like them becasue they are good, but if their sucess pisses you off, that's even more of a reason to like them.

And therein lies the problem for whitefolk like yourself..cause the painful truth is, you believe that MORE than any Williams fan anywhere.

And Venus, being of sound body and mind and no match play , could very well play herself right into the final... she did in Melbourne, why not the US Open?

Rtael, please don't attack my post I just said what I think was going to happen, just a prediction. There was never anything racial in this thread. Venus has come back numerous times from injury and with little or no preparation to win a tournament. So let's not count out her yet and a possiblility of an all Belgian final

I am not black yet I am a devoted fan of Venus and Serena.
I am also a devoted fan of Monica and she's not black.

Anyhow, may the best two players during the two weeks of the USO make it to the finals!!

It's alright

You can come on out

Wow, this is almost as funny as dh's prediction about Kim not dropping a set in the next 3 weeks...
Anyways, i have not expectations from Venus, but may i remind you that she did make the Australian Open finals without dropping a single set(including a straight set win over Justine) after not playing a warm up tournament

And about the race thing...Russians tend to root for Russian, Belgians support the Belgians, so i see nothing wrong with that...
