Venus is amazing she hasn't played since Wimbledon and she's still making tennis headlines.

"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. "

How about that? It only took Amelie four months to pass an idle Venus in the rankings. Way to go, MoMo!!

This was an article? You Venus fans should be happy...she's so famous that her dropping one spot to #7 is a headline!

Anyway, if by "milestone" you mean "career-high ranking," this isn't Momo's.

Momo hasn't exactly had it easy this year with injuries either. She is just starting to hit her stride and now has a thigh wrap on again.

Hurley, why "hate", just "congratulate"...!!! You just can't imagine how "difficult" it was for Venus to "gut out" 6 tourneys...!!!

NO ONE else is really important, when there´s news to say about a Williams.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Well no disrespect to Dementieva, but who would you feel happier about passing?

VERY impressive that V's still in the top 10 despite not playing since wimby - but I'm also happy that Momo's been healthy long enough to halt her own slide in the rankings.

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

So saying Venus is the most famous tennis player in tennis is hating now. Got it.

The "milestone" is passing Venus in the rankings. I was being facetious about that "milestone".
