Kim is Still Kim, There is Hope For Venus

Kim before retirement had a history of checking in and out of matches.

So despite Venus knee, I still have hope.

A tank set from Kim. it's better for her to save energy for third set though she might not have the momentum on her side.

Re: Kim is Still Kim, There is Hope For Venus

As much as I despise Venus I'd rather she win with the home crowd for her. Kim's story is great yada yada yada but they wouldn't cheer for Andy's opponent they way they do Kim.

Venus might as well get her mail forwarded to Serena's shadow. She's going to be there forever!

Re: Kim is Still Kim, There is Hope For Venus

Why would you tank after a bagel set when you had ALL the momentum

Re: Kim is Still Kim, There is Hope For Venus

This is ridiculous.

For Dante, it follows then, that the only way to get into Hell is to insist upon it. One must deliberately exclude himself from grace by hardening his heart against it. Hell is what the damned have actively and insistently wished for.

The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Shakespeare

You missed the context: Venus knee.
So I don't give her much chance in this match.

Re: Kim is Still Kim, There is Hope For Venus

Did Venus get some poor advice after Wimbledon about resting her knee because she played a fairly long hard court season and her knee musn't have recovered sufficently before the Open for it to happen again in the opening match.

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.
