I'm just very, very disappointed in them. I don't think tennis is that important to them any more and that's fine. It's just that I'm a firm believer in that if you're going to do something, give it your best. Don't do anything half-ass. So, with that in mind, if they are not interested in playing any more, don't play. But, if they are really interested in getting back on top, they really need to focus on tennis, leave the outside interests alone for a minute, get new coaches and get a new attitude.

This is supposed to be a therapeutic thread!

Venus did nothing half-ass! :rolleyes:

She did the best she could on that day
competing for herself and her country!
And I find it insulting to question one's
desire when they've shown to the point of their
own detriment health-wise(Venus especially) that they want to play!

Rant over!


Love, peace, and harmony! :angel: :angel: :angel:

All I can say is easier said than done. Having been a Martina Hingis fan lo these last few years it was evident that she too was not as focussed nor committed to the sport.:eek: ..it happens...in Martina's case she was enjoying the luxury of doing "other" things and of course her boyfriends became a distraction..as with the Williams sisters...they both are "talented" in other ways..Serena with her acting ambitions and Venus with her fashion flair...so much wealth leads to other "interests" they will have to rededicate themselves to hard training and motivation to once again get to the top.:worship: .unfortunately Martina, because of her injuries could not regroup! :sad:

Frankly, I fail to understand some "fans". It's cool that they have outside interests when they are dominating (00-01-02-half of 03), but as soon as they slump (which is all injury related, I may add), their outsides interests are a problem. It doesn't make any sense to me.

I wish health for the girls. I believe once they get 100% healthy, they'll be confident in their movement, and shots again.

Good luck Venus :)
Good luck Serena :)

And saying that was therapeutic for me. As a long time fan, I think I'm entitled to say what I said.

I'm not talking about this particular tournament, I'm talking about Venus and Serena's matches this year overall. They are so much better than what they are playing. I know injuries have factored in, but do they factor in when they win matches or just when they lose? I personally don't think that Venus did the best she could on that day against Mary. It's time to make some changes somewhere. What I find insulting is calling yourself a true fan and not being able to see the faults of your favs. Looking at them through rose-colored glasses and hoping for the best doesn't help the situation. I think it's time the fans stood up and stopped enabling them. I know we are not in their camp, but maybe they do read what their fans have to say, and maybe just maybe it will sink in.

Hey Vee and Rena...You know I love you girls with all my heart...but SHIT OR GET OFF THE POT!!!!

While I was sad about the loss I was able to put things into prespective.

The good thing is now I won't have to fight with so many haters constantly. Venus' decline should make people leave her alone soon, because they will just overlook her altogether.

IMO though this year is a total scrap for Venus. I think she will have to resurge next season. :devil:

And although the haters are out to mock her loss, it's actually a lot less than it was when she was dominating. I actually like the peace. And at least now we as fans can be a little more relaxed cause there isn't a lot of expectation.

As for Serena....she's in an odd situation. Girl just can't bring it in finals, but I think she's healing up and I expect Serena back before this season is over.:)

I think if anything, Venus' slump in form has brought her fans here closer together which is good coz as luna said, when Venus dominates the tour, all the haters come out in full force and we all need to be united to tackle them.(umm,:o a bit cheesy i know, let me get the sick bucket! :) )
I just can't wait till the day that Venus wins a slam again, how sweet and awesome will that be. I bet Venus would even get emotional , well maybe a lil bit.

Olympic Dream Postponed

ATHENS: On a warm afternoon upon the hard courts of the Olympic Tennis
Centre, Mary Pierce took the attack up to Venus Williams and any dream
Venus may have had of winning back-to-back Olympic gold medal was
disappointingly put to rest when Pierce scored a 6-4, 6-4 upset over the
sixth seed.

"Obviously I would have liked to have done better and even win the event,
but, you know, now I just have to learn from my mistakes," said Venus after
the third round result. "I think she played well and served well and played
some good points at the right time."

Venus had chances in the match. Even after losing the first set she was
still attacking and broke Pierce in the second set to lead 4-2, but the
Frenchwoman broke back and levelled the set at 4-4 and then forged ahead
for victory.

As disappointed as she is, Venus will not dwell on the result for long and
her memories of the 28th Olympiad will still be a positive experience.

She said just being part of the Olympic experience is a great one and to
qualify to be part of the American team is "wonderful" and something that
she definitely wants to experience "again in my lifetime". Sure playing
tennis at the Olympics was different to any other tournament, but that was
not a factor in the loss.

"It's been absolutely worthwhile," said Venus, who won the gold medal in
Sydney four years ago. "I've had a great career so far and I'm going to add
more experiences like this to my career. This is the epitome of athletics.

"Meeting all the other athletes was great," said Venus. "More than anything
you can see how focused everyone is on participating in their event."

Venus is not going to be staying around Athens. She is sensible in getting
back to the United States where she will start turning her focus to the
rest of the summer hard court circuit and look ahead to the last major of
the year, the US Open, which begins 30 August at the National Tennis Centre
in New York.
