"Oh No That B**** Didn't"

http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/505/12003-ausopen429b.jpg

A reliable source over heard Venus and Serena Williams having a conversation today during a doubles practice session about Amelie Mauresmo's boasting about defeating Williams on her worse surface. The source says when Venus told Serena the news, the first words out of her mouth was, "Oh no that b**** didn't."

This is sure to be a question that will be asked in Venus's Pre Moscow Interview that is scheduled for tomorrow. More as the drama continues...........

Oh Yes That B**** Did

http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b241/FlamingoSpice/shosho.jpg

Doubles partner to Venus Williams, fellow American Mashona Washington confirms that indeed Amelie Mauresmo was running her mouth about a recent win over Williams.

"I would love to see them have a rematch. But I'd fear for Amelie's well being because Venus is going to kick her butt all over the court."

Washington who just got off the court from her first round match against Czech Lucie Safarova won her match in straight sets; 7-5, 6-4. This win books her a second round meeting with Amelie Mauresmo. This will be the first time this two have ever met on court.

"I was suprised when I saw the draw and I didn't really expect to meet her in the second round. She just doesn't seem like that good of a indoor court player to me. Sorry Venus, I'm gonna have to beat Amelie on court but you're welcome to beat her off court."

"You Better Believe I'm Bringing It In Moscow"

http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/505/21239362269venus.jpg

A confident Venus Williams walked off the court a 6-2, 6-3 win over Tamira Paszek today in Moscow, Russia. Williams has already expressed her intent on winning the event and qualifying for the prestigous year ending championships in ATC.

"Only the best will play in the year ending championships and I believe I am one of the best. You better believe i'm bringing it in Moscow, so my opponents should do the same."

Although it was confirmed that Amelie Mauresmo was attempting to taunt Williams after she had an indoor victory over her, Williams declined a pre-match interview, stating that Amelie wouldn't make it past the second round in Moscow. She will face Williams doubles partner Mashona Washington in that round.

Williams Still Alive In YEC Race!!!

http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/505/capt_vm15705291712_france_french_open_tennis_vm157 .jpg

Today Venus Williams defeated the world no. 4 and countrywoman Ashley Harkleroad in the most exciting match in Moscow to date. The 6-7, 7-6, 7-5 score line really tells the story of this intense battle between these two Americans in Russia.

"It wasn't that my game was off today or anything, it was just that Ashley forced me to play at such a high level throughout the entire match. These are the type of matches you dream of winning and I am just thrilled that I could pull out this victory and remain in the hunt for the YEC."

Evil Vee's Translation:

That bitch made me work too damn hard today and now I am tired. Next time we play, I'll just get someone to pull a Nancy K on her right leg. :devil: :lol:

The top 10 as of the Moscow semis -

1. Severine Bremond – 3285*
2. Marion Bartoli – 3051
3. Tamarine Tanasugarn – 2680
4. Ashley Harkleroad – 2670
5. Michaella Krajicek – 2400
6. Anastasia Myskina – 2269
7. Nathalie Dechy – 2186
8. Amelie Mauresmo – 2165
9. Venus Williams – 2050*
10. Jelena Jankovic – 1994

* - Still in the tournament.

Alright, if Venus reaches the final, she's on 2175, pushing Mauresmo into 9th :eek: If she wins it, she's on 2325, pushing Myskina into 7th, Dechy into 8th and Mauresmo into 9th :eek:

If Venus reaches the final and loses it, just 21 points will seperate 7th and 9th :eek:

The top 5 have all qualified :clap2: There is a slight chance that Myskina could still miss out, and there's also a chance Jankovic could still qualify :lol: If Venus loses in the semis, and JJ does well in Quebec and Venus/Momo/Nat don't then she'll make it...

All in all, after calculations, it doesn't look so bad for Dechy, it all depends on how Venus does this week, if she does well, then whoever between Dechy and Mauresmo does better in Quebec will qualify, can't believe how close it is :eek:
