Richard predicted Venus would win Wimbledon 2007 when all eyes were on Serena, at least as far as the Williamses were concerned. So far, Venus is on tract by making the semis while Rena is out (injured). Is Richard that clairvoyant or did he know things nobody else could even guess? He's been right before on many accounts, will he be this time? What are Venus's chances against Anna and possibly Henin/Bartoli?

BTW, hold your guns here, this is no jinx. Richard made that statement at the onset of this fortnight, and it has held up so far.

Venus' game is much more grass-friendly than Serena's. I think he saw Venus beginning to piece herself together. Venus' draw was perfectly constructed. I love her chances against Henin, especially with the career slam on the line. Venus never backs away from a challenge. She always plays to the level of her opponent and in this case, she'll play higher than the level of the number one player.

But Ana first. :)

it's not over, but she certainly has gone further than most would have predicted.

Here we go! Vee just took out Anna 62-64, and is on her way to the final. Hopefully, we'll see Venus raising the "Venus Plate" once again. :worship:
Still, kudos to Anna for showing great form and talent in the 2nd set.

Yes, Richard was right! Venus won Wimbledon 2007. Whether you hate him or love him, he deserves some kudos.

And now, let's bow to the fourth time Wimbledon Champion :worship: VENUS E. WILLIAMS :worship:

this is what I keep saying. Richard knows his girls. He's been right about them so many times. you can't dispute his track record.
