Incrdible considering the last few years she was lucky to win even 1. Which makes me even mad at the wasted opportunity at the AO, she really is back!
Go girl!

Impressive run for Venus. :yeah:

She hasn't been doing that well since 2002, winning tournaments regularly like this. Shame about the AO, but Venus does seem to be getting more and more consistent again.

she has? i didn't realize that. so she had no excuse to lose the AO. Now I am a bit mad at her for messing up the start of her year.

:tape: AO

But i'm glad Serena got her 10th slam.
This is amazing considering she was struggling to win Tier III's and below off of grass and only made a few Tier I SF in the last 3 years.

Venus is back in the world's top five! Good job!

Yeah, that's great, especially since she has struggling for the past 5 years to win back to back important titles. I don't like to raise too many expectations on her, I just expect a good season from her. This title was quite important, she had never won it before so that's cool.

If I had to choose between Venus winning Wimbledon or any of the other slams this year, I would skip Wimbledon as she is already a great champion over there. A title in Roland Garros (very, very unlikely) or in the US Open would made my year. The Australian Open was a missed opportunity (I believe Serena was the only competition) but she never plays that well over there.

Good luck for the rest of the season and keep improving!! :hearts:

It has been awhile since Venus won a couple outdoor hardcourt titles. Doha and Dubai, she loves playing in the middle east!

Actually, since 2002 today's Dubai is just her 3rd outdoor hardcourt title (including a Tier III Tokyo win) :tape:

I meant, most of the time she beats Serena but then goes to lose to a Kim Clijsters, a Maria Sharapova, etc...but yeah, the last two times she beat Serena and then went on to win the title. Nice.

Congratulations Vee
Venus is playing really well and It's a shame she couldn't play better at the Australian but Serena did so I'm happy.

I don't expect Venus to win Roland Garros but I have huge expectations for Venus. I think she's gonna win Wimbledon and the US Open this year.

Stay healthy Venus.

Hate clay court season. She tends to get injured during clay court season all the time.

I'd like to to see a Williams-Williams tandem in the top 2 spots. It doesn't matter who's the number one or two. :)

Let go of the AO guys :lol: Vee has always been prone to random losses even in her periods of dominance. She wouldn't be herself without the odd "wtf?!" loss :p Anyway, it is great to see her being so consistent again with winning 3 out of her last 4 tournaments and the scary thing for the rest of the tour is that she wasn't even playing her best in Dubai all week and still won the title.

Good job, Vee!

I just don't know what happens to Venus at the A.O. :confused:.

Maybe she should wear a white dress and pretend its Wimbledon :lol:. Its unbelievable how she underperfoms in Melbourne every year, yet she showed with her appearance in the final in '03 that she can play well on the surface.
