I guess VENUS had a secret birthday ceremony.
PARIS -- Venus Williams claimed her second title of 2002 when Jelena Dokic withdrew from Sunday's final of the Gaz de France tournament with a strained right thigh.
Williams then hinted again that she might cut her season short to concentrate on academics.
"I'd like to take the fall off and go to school," she said.
The 22-year-old Williams
, a student in fashion design at the Florida Art Institute, has said she feels torn between studies and sports.
She told French sports daily L'Equipe on Tuesday that she knew she needed to devote more time to tennis to reach No. 1, but added that she's not prepared to give up her other interests, including her studies at the Florida Art Institute.
"I am somebody who gets bored very easily and if I dedicated all my time to tennis, it would end up boring me," Williams said.
VENUS was born on June 17, 1980
The media is in such a rush to find some negativity,
that they can not get their real facts straight.
