Shriver continues to hate on Venus.(latest piece of hating added today)

Mary Joe and Cliff are trying to talk some sense into Pam and tell her that when Venus is at her best that Venus' tennis is better than the Belgians. Pam of course tried to shoot off at the mouth and say the Belgians particularly Henin-Hardenne are better than Venus. She says she would pick Henin over Venus.

Mary Joe and Cliff shut her up. They could bring the Belgians sparkling 3-12 record (one an injury retire from Venus) against Venus up, but that would only serve to embarrass Shriver. Hmmm..might be a good idea.

i'd pick henin if i needed someone to represent my team year in year out, because venus is so injury prone, but if i just needed to choose the player who is better at her best, then i would say venus by a lot more than a mile (except maybe on clay, but even then, i will never forget venus beating monica in q/fs of RG a couple of years ago. she was simply unbelievable)

Here's my other question:

How come Pam is so against Venus? She was her mentor for crying out loud!

I don't know, but from what I hear, when Venus was winning majors, Pam was all on the Venus bandwagon.

She was. I have matches from 2000/2001. Shriver was all over Venus.

But here's my other question: she claimed the Belgians had better results--well duh! Venus missed half the season with injury!

I know. She has her lips firmly attached to Jennifer Capriati's butt right now though. I know the haters might be mad, but the WS would thrash these girls right about now. The WS are so much better than everyone else still, it's not even funny. NO offense to Sugiyama, but if she was against a WS the match would have been over already. No way she would be able to do the things she is doing against Capriati.

I don't know if Pam hates Venus.
But the fact that she thinks the Belgians can beat Venus doesn't mean that she hates her: she's not the only one to think that !! At least on your TV, everyone doesn't think the same way, and it reflects what the experts think. You should be happy, to have all the points of view !!!
Why don't you say Mary Joe and Cliff don't like the Belgians ?

I'm not going to explain what it means to be a "hater" because I've done it a million times. She said Henin was better period. Not that she has the ability to beat Venus, but that she was flat out better. Pam is harder on Venus than any other player out there for some reason and talks about her while she is not even playing a match.

She's always trying to hype where there is no hype. We here in America KNOWS whose better. I don't need that womans opinion on anything.

Like Venus said "I watch tennis on mute" you should try it too.

And if i understood well (it's in another thread), apparently she said that when Venus was at her best, she didn't win 7/8 tournies a year !
She didn't talk about this season.
if i'm wrong, then sorry !

She was talking about this year and saying Venus hadn't won a major in 2 years. Venus won 7 tournies in 2002 and 6 each in 1999-2001.
