Hey All,

To my favorite Venus fans - bless you for keeping a realistic grip on life. Venus lost. Big damn deal! Mary was on and Venus was a little off - and that is the bottom line. There is no big mystery - seeing that tennis is only a game. Mary brought her A-Game to Athens thus far - and she beat a great player. When Mary was playing fierce tennis - she certainly was no slouch.

Mary last beat Venus in 1998. The record was 6-2 in favor of Venus. Wouldn’t it be boring as ‘ell if players on the tour never felt that they could beat a player that had a winning record against them? Let’s get real here. Venus had a losing record to Martina and Lindsay for a couple of years before she started beating them.

This is the first year that Mary has had decent results since 2001 - if I am not mistaken. Didn’t she come back from injuries? And weren’t some writing her off and suggesting that she retire? Now how does that sound? IMO - as long as a player has the nerve to compete on the tour - they have the time and opportunity to IMPROVE. May haps - Venus will beat Mary the next time they play. I mean - come on!

Again - it would be pretty darn boring if one’s fave won every match they played. Not only that - it would be shortsighted and slow minded for someone to think that a way. It really is sad that some folks can’t cop a grip concerning their so-called faves.

Lastly - some of Venus' so-called fans need to move on. Please find a new fave - so that you can leave Venus alone when she loses. She does not need your support - does not know and care about ’ya - and can make it w/o ’ya. No problem!

“CONGRATULATIONS MARY” “I’M STILL PULLING FOR YOU AT THE US OPEN VENUS - 'CAUSE I STILL BELIEVE IN 'YA” “I LOVE YOU - GIRLIE-GIRL”

venus was " a little bit off" let me tell u, that last time i saw venus win a match with 50 errors was against hingis at the 2000 usopen, and that was b/c she had 50+ winners as well.

Mary played well enough that the errors venus was making was gonna cost her. Not to say that Mary didn't "beat" venus, but venus was the main factor in venus' loss.
