What a well played match. There were so many high quality mathes. Despite the scoreline, Marion did a great job to hang in there.

125 mph serve into the body, proved to be too good though at the end.

Great job to Marion!!! she handled the moment well but Venus covers way too much court for Marion and her serve was too big today.
Good luck to Marion in the future. Good thing for is that the last person to lose their first slam final @ Wimbledon to Venus was Justine.
Good things to look forward to for Marion.

She played quite well but Venus had too much game today
(running down everything, something JH couldn't do).

She handled the occasion very well. :yeah:
Saying that Venus is definitely the World#1 on grass. :lol:
When she thanked her dad he got really emotional and
Richard Williams hugged him. :awww:

Venus' speech was nice.
"I was able to play against the best players in the world, including Marion and I'm glad I was able to play just a bit better, cause she was tough" (losely quoted :lol: )
I also liked how she brought up equal prize money and said "I love you" to Billy Jean King. :haha:

I noticed her unsmiling face, bitch. ;)

Marion brought a tear to my eye thanking her dad.

Notice that Richard gave her dad a couple of hi fives, a hug and comforted the guy when he started crying after his daughter thanked him...

But great job Bartoli to reach the Wimbledon final is an amazing acheivement.

WTG Venus!!! I told y'all not to write her off before Wimbledon - and she just turned it up about 10 notches!!! Once she stepped inside Centre Court, Venus didn't lose a set. There's just something about Wimbledon that makes Venus's game come together, and if she can play like that on a more consistent basis, there's no doubt that she would be right back at the top. And Marion deserves everything she's received here. She played terrific, and took out two of the top four contenders on her way to the finals. Just like Mary and John, I like how she was upset at the end - it showed that she believed in herself and thought she had a chance. She gained my respect. :yeah:

I could definitely see Marion going on to win some big titles in her career if she gets fit. Who knows, maybe this Wimbledon final will help her get a sponsor like Jenny Craig or something :shrug: She hanged tough in the points but so many times Venus would hit the line and Marion couldn't run it down.

And respect to Marion. Her record of getting bagelled isn't good and given the situation I thought it might happen here. But she played well and got composed after a couple of games. Venus was just too fast for her. It was straight sets but it was not a bad match.

Regardless, if the want you there or not:lol:, Venus, did a Ludacris,' Move Bitch, get out the way'!:tape: :lol:But seriously, this victory is well deserved.

Throughout your career, you have demonstarted the mark of a champion; not only with the number of wins, but the perserverance, and courage, and believe that has carried you through all the hardships you have endured:hearts:

To Marion, with your play today you have shown you are every bit as worth as the next competitor. :kiss: Let not the doubters, and naysayers(especially here:lol:), diminish your big accomplishment, in reaching the final

Jul 7th, 2007, 03:43 PM
I really don't think there's anything wrong with Marion's fitness.

I can not imagine it being easy to hit double-handed on both sides when you're her height. That was clearly to Venus' advantage. When Marion had to hit her backhand she had to get in position in good time in order to get it back crosscourt; when she was late you always expected it to go up the line or mid-court.

I think she's working very well with what's been given to her, and her height compared to Justine's gave her a better chance at beating Justine than she'd have against the 6'1" Venus.

IMO, Venus had looked a bit sluggish since the Kuzzie match and I'm glad she was able to battle off whatever was bothering her long enough to win. I guess I wanted to see Venus play everyone else the way she played Sharapova; had she done so she would have won this match with a lot less resistance and drama.

Congrats to Bartoli for achieving what she did here. Unlike Venus she has her whole career ahead of her: Venus is on the tail-end of hers and she needs to take whatever she can get while the getting's still good.

Venus was so cute in her speech, especially when she thanked "Henry". I was like who the hell's "Henry"? Say Hank, man!

And you could just see the girl wanting to explode out there with that trophy in her hands but she contained it a lot better than in the past, lol.

You played horribly in the first three rounds, then you started blitzing your opponents with dazzling tennis. Hats off! :worship:

Marion ran very well in the points points and wouldn't make eny errors in the long points. She hit some really amazing shots on the run. Her ground strokes are really consistent and precise:)
It was really nerve-wrecking at some points! But Venus got some amaing balls back when it seemed
that she is down and out of the point. Venus hit bravely on the line on tough points and that 2nd game of the 2nd set was really exciting, Venus just winnered her way to the break. It was nice too how Venus closed the first set out with a backhand volley. Did you see that backhand smash from Venus on one point? It was an amazing shot!!:worship: :worship:
Gongratulations Venus Williams!!:worship: :worship: :worship:

Jul 7th, 2007, 03:52 PM
Bartoli actually played a lot better than I thought she would, but she was facing peak Venus and no one's beating her if she plays like that. Then again, Bartoli has a flat game with limited movement, which is just a bad matchup against Venus who can retrieve all of those flat balls, especially on grass.

Hey All,

Yessssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss!

I loved the fact that Venus's level held up. It 'tis true - at times - one never knows what Venus will show up. On her grass and as play unfolded during her fourth round match against Maria - many of us were still on the bandwagon. After that match - many of us believed that Venus was right there. Right there to claim her fourth Wimby title. She stepped up to the plate in each round after that and reminded the remaining three players why she loved to rule and win at Wimby. She wouldn't be denied.

And I agree - Venus's comment about the equaL prize money was PRICELESS. And her acknowledging BJK was too.

Marion believes in her game a great deal. That was so nice to see. She has Monica down pat. That cheque she received will also make her continue to believe. I loved it when she and Venus gave each other five when they walked past each other.

"THAT'S WHAT I WAS TALKIN' 'BOUT VENUS" "BY THE FOURTH ROUND - THERE WAS NO BOUT ADOUBT IT IN ME MIND" "CONGRATULATIONS"

"CONGRATULATIONS - MARION" "YOU DONE GOOD TOO"

On paper, the final looks like it was boring, but I didn't find it so. I knew Venus was going to win, but it was so exciting to have Marion there, that alone seemed to make up for the lack of three tough sets, etc. And Marion did better than the last two finalists in Slams this year.

This Wimbledon tournament has been a testament to that when Venus is playing her best, there is no player (at least on the WTA) more enjoyable to watch than her, like someone else said earlier.

I picked Venus to win Wimbledon before the tourney started. I believed all the way throughout, and I can't wait till Venus wins her seventh slam, hopefully at home this year. I LOVE YOU VENUS. Seriously, one of the most inspirational athletes ever.

If Justine didn't have a meltdown in the 3rd set, maybe it would have been a more interesting final :wavey:

Congrats Venus and Marion. Well deserved, Venus. Loved the part about wanting to match Serena's Australian win. This was great.
Justine didn't have a meltdown, Jusitne had a beatdown

Congrats to Venus. It has been an amazing two weeks. I hope to see Marion in more Slam finals hopefully the french and wimbledon again. She is very sweet. Does anyone know where I can get video clips of the final online I had to work and missed it.:(

Congrats to Venus! :) She just has to keep up with Justine all the time, doesn't she? :lol: Wonder which one will end up with more GS.

Marion at least sorta showed up. (First) Serve was basically AWOL it seemed. But she was very likeable out there which was great to see. She won the crowd in the end. And her speech was fantastic and touching. Her dad...:awww: I was cracking up when Richard high-fived and hugged Marion's dad. :haha: :rolls: Hope Marion continues to keep up the good results.

Man, that final was so muted. Missed Justine and her Allez. :lol: Would have been much more exciting but oh well she missed her chance yet again.
Probably Justine since Justine plays much more than Venus but I'll be interested in who comes out on top of the head-to-head.

Venus Williams, the anabolic champion well done miss steroidsSteroids have the opposite affect of Venus' body type.

You guys remember when Williams' trolls would have @ least some kinda knowledge of Venus and Serena? Ya'll remember, swami(who's probably now "fidelllo"), cheesetix, and even spencercarlos? Now we have to deal with silly ones like mattrs, and it's not all that fun anymore.:sad:

Just wanted to join the mix, now that I'm back, in congratulating Vee on her fourth Wimbledon title. I'm so proud of her and her achievements. Way to go Vee. I had my doubts, but I should know better to listen to Richard when he makes a prediction :yeah:
