With her convincing win over World #4 Elena Dementieva, Venus Williams will enter the top 5 on Monday for the first time since .....

Well a long time :sobbing:

The Williams sisters (especially Venus) have Dementieva's number now. I hope they continue to kick Dementieva's ass in straight sets from now on. :)

Good scoreline. With the way Venus has been playing in this tournament so far, I doubt she will have any trouble against Serena tomorrow.

Venus has Acapulco next week to consolidate her ranking
and Vera has to defend a Bangalore QF + IW QF which is 370 points;)

Venus has Bangalore SF.... but it would be consolidated if she wins Dubai

Hopefully she can get higher soon too and Venus and Serena won't get drawn in the same half so much!

My sentiments exactly.

Feb 19th, 2009, 04:26 PM
WD Vee :yeah:

She was a solid fixture in the top 3, let alone top 5, for so long so to have such a long drought is surprising. But it's good she has come back, I hope she stays there.

AcesHigh
Feb 19th, 2009, 04:32 PM
LOOOONNNG overdue. Now get into the top 3 where you belong :)

Luckily for Vee, she has little to defend until Wimbledon. She should be able to make the Miami QF again (fingers crossed), and she was injured for the clay season so she should improve there. I think unless she fails to defend Wimbledon, she should be able to jump back to at least #5 after she loses it.

omg has it really long be that long since venus was top 5? it's amazing that she has managed to win 3 slams since then and not been top 5 lol. well done though venus. u r a legend.

First time since 2003.

Thank you Venus! :D You've put together the most solid 52 weeks of your career since 2002. Keep up the good work, the results will only keep getting better.'

I remember during 2004-2008, Venus would play a top 10 player and I'd be like, oh great. Here we go, another loss. But now, I am back to the 2002 days where if Venus is playing anyone, I believe she can win. Bigger and better things to come!

Awesome, truly awesome..:yeah:

You know I set back and wonder how high these two young ladies would have went if they hadn't had those side ventures.

Venus put a lot of time into designing, and Serena put in a lot of time in acting. Now, if these two super talented young ladies didn't take that time off, I think we would have seen a changing of the rules, court, or something, because all we would have been seeing is the WS on top..

However, even after taking off, they are able to come back, and even though their game is not where it should be or at their best, they use what they have more than anybody to win. And that my friends is HEART!! Venus and Serena, or Serena and Venus have more heart than the rest of the feild..

Again, super :yeah: to Venus...

Feb 19th, 2009, 04:38 PM
She needs to reach top 4 in order to avoid an all-Williams QF at a slam

In The Zone
Feb 19th, 2009, 04:39 PM
There is a sizable gap between her and Elena. She will need BIG results and Elena will need to not do so well for Venus to make that next jump. It will take big titles (notice I used the plural) to bring the next jump. Jankovic really only has IW SF and Miami F until Rome.

A RG Title would do the trick, too. ;)

I foresee Wimbledon seeding Venus #2, though, to have the sisters on opposite halves.

That's a huge amount of points and she is playing really poorly right now. Much more likely for Venus to catch her instead of Elena.

well...
once again...
she has won the last h2h against
everyone in the top ten bar Kuzzi...

and...
seriously...
i think only
Serena Williams
n some (almost)unknown players could
upset her before the
latter stages of the tourny

If they didn't have those side ventures, we wouldn't be talking about them today. They would either be burnout, or injured:rolleyes:

although really it just sounds great to say top 5, her seeding at slams doesn't change and she can still face Serena in the QF so :shrug:

whateva ... Venus - I refuse to believe you can't play on clay. Get your butt to the top 4 by showing up at Roland Garros.

Anything less than a semifinal run in Paris is unacceptable

She can quite easily improve on her Miami and RG performances. Any other points are bonuses.
