View Full Version : Now That Venus Has Lost, Venus Fans What Do You Want?

Jun 1st, 2003, 09:50 PM
I want to see Serena play Ameile!!

Should be a great match. Tuesday I suppose. Good I plan to watch on a big screen TV!!

I hope to see Serena or Amelie win it all!! Can't wait to see the French crowd go beserk over Amelie. They probably will have a few drinks and cut loose!! :D :o :lick: :wavey:

Jun 1st, 2003, 09:51 PM
I want to see Serena DEFEND!

I think that Venus' loss will motivate Serena even more to do it for both of them. :p

Jun 1st, 2003, 09:52 PM
I want proof that Venus is "ok" and that she is rehabilitating on Wimbledon's grass courts in a few days.

Jun 1st, 2003, 09:55 PM
I give Venus a lot of credit for getting this far in the tournment with an abdominal injury. I felt she should not have played. She is a true champion. Get well soon Venus.

Jun 1st, 2003, 09:56 PM
I want to see Steffi some more too. nice to see her on tv during agassi match.

If serena loses that helps venus in the rankings but i hope to see a three set match.

I do have to say deep in my heart I want Amelie to win since she is French and it would be great for her. I mean I want Ameile to win the whole tournament now that Venus is out.

Also I want Martina Navratilova to win the doubles.

Wonder where griffin is?

Earth to griffin! COME IN!!! :wavey:

I want venus to give up V Starr and give 100% to her tennis

Jun 1st, 2003, 09:58 PM
I'm really just hoping for a good match Tennis wise......ie points won on winners not errors. Oh and yeah, of course I'd like Serena to win!!

Well, I want the champion to be:

1. Serena Williams
2. Chanda Rubin
3. Nadia Petrova
4. Justine Henin-Hardenne
5. Conchita Martinez
6. Kim Clijsters
7. Vera Zvonareva
8. Amelie Mauresmo

In that order, which obviously means, I would root for anyone over Amelie. :rolleyes:

Jun 1st, 2003, 10:01 PM
I want Serena to continue the Williams dominance. :bounce:

With Venus losing early, she won't have many points to defend next year...or even in the first six months. I hope she takes advantage of it and make a run for the No. 1 spot. ;) For this year, I want Venus to work on her second serve and her forehand. She's too good of a player to have such a weak second serve.

Jun 1st, 2003, 10:02 PM
Hopefully Serena and Nadia make the finals, with serena winning...actually i dont care who wins...

Jun 1st, 2003, 10:03 PM
why do you dislike Amelie so much? I like how she is very athletic and I like to see her one handed backhand which is rare in ladies tennis.

I hope the French public will do the wave in the stands.

Jun 1st, 2003, 10:06 PM
I don't dislike Amelie, I just like the other 7 better. :p

Jun 1st, 2003, 10:12 PM
ok venusforever. if you have time give me some rep points. OK?

Also to some other people who gave me points. I have to wait or spread around before I can give you some. sorry. :(

Jun 1st, 2003, 10:13 PM
I think deep down if Venus Williams thought she was good enough to win Roland Garros '03 she would have won that match today. For her getting to the final and losing is a curse where for most players it is a blessing. Her grand slam winning ways would not return on her weakest surface but rather on her strongest, grass or US hard courts.

Jun 1st, 2003, 10:21 PM
grass also helps serena so venus will need to serve well or she will lose again...

Jun 1st, 2003, 10:27 PM
If Serena wins the French with the draw that she has she would take a mental vacation, voluntary or involuntary.

Jun 1st, 2003, 10:31 PM
Conchita, Momo, Chanda or Justine :)

I'd also like to see Venus win Wimby :D

Jun 1st, 2003, 10:31 PM
As long as Henin or Clijsters don't win, I'm cool. I'm rooting for Rena and Chanda! :):):)

Jun 1st, 2003, 10:41 PM
oops, I forgot. I won't be that upset if Rena wins again. :D

Jun 1st, 2003, 10:47 PM
Well I was worried about Venus aggrivating her injury more, but then in her 3rd match she looked so good I got so hopeful....and now :sad: Oh well C'est La Vie it was just a tennis match in the end.

Of course now I will root for Miss.Serena Williams I'd like to see her defend her title. If she cannot however I would love to see Justine take it, she has alwasy been a sentimental favorite of mine for this title. My 3rd choice would be Chanda she is so overlooked.

Jun 1st, 2003, 11:05 PM
I want Serena to defend :D

Mr. Man
Jun 1st, 2003, 11:35 PM
I want Serena to defend. :D

I want Vee to rest up and come dominate Wimby. :hearts:

Jun 1st, 2003, 11:37 PM
I want more upsets now. I want Henin, Mauresmo and Clijsters out in the QF.

Jun 1st, 2003, 11:39 PM
While it's sad, I am not really disappointed... Yes Venus hasn't been playing to her potential, but I will chalk up this loss to her lack of play and the recent injury... An abdominal strain is no joke people .. It can take anywhere from 6months to 1 year to heal--- and the FACT that she was on the court so soon after J&S Cup is commendable.

Although I believe in her, I'm somewhat surprised and happy that she willed herself this far considering she almost did not show up for her 2nd rd match...

Venus has way too much pride to just fade away into the sunset. I expect her to get back to her winning ways.

Go practice my Queen and come back with a vengence PLEASE :)
I hope that Serena can retain her title :)

Jun 1st, 2003, 11:41 PM
grass also helps serena so venus will need to serve well or she will lose again...

I must say though, watching venus-zvonareva match today , venus' second serve doesnt look as vunerable, it looks like that fed cup with billie jean king actually worked cuz her second serves were by the most part deep and had alot of spin on it , which spun away from the opponent. Way to go Venus, now all u have to do to beat serena is come to net more and work on that aspect of your game.

i heart backhand
Jun 1st, 2003, 11:43 PM
I want to see Chanda take home a Slam! If she can't pull it out, I'd be more than happy for Serena to take the title, making it 12 consecutive Slams won by an American. :) If neither of these can pull it out, I'd rooting for Mauresmo...

Jun 2nd, 2003, 12:50 AM
I want Serena to defend. A Serena/Kim final with Serena winning would do my heart good. A Serena/Vera final would be great, as well. But most importantly, I want Serena to win this title.

I want Venus to get healthy, and for Serena to win RG 03. I don't really care about much else.

Jun 2nd, 2003, 01:36 AM
I want Venus to find the drive for tennis, get a new coach (nothing wrong with outside help), and venus to gain her confidence back

Go serena, win this tourny. If not you, Kim

Jun 2nd, 2003, 04:37 AM
GO SERENA and take the FO title! Do it for yourself and dedicate winning the trophy to Venus (she needs the inspiration at this time)...

She should not have played RG unless her abdominal muscle was 100 % healed. I think she can enjoy her fashion thing no problem, why not?

Jun 2nd, 2003, 07:37 AM
I want Serena to win, crushing the field like no one has seen before

Jun 2nd, 2003, 12:15 PM
It's still good for me... three of my faves are still in (Vera, Nadia, Justine) so it'd be amazing if they won it.

As for Venus... I'm not that sad, I'm still ecstatic for Vera - I've supported her since she was ranked in the 300s, this is huge. I'd like Venus to get healthy first, and then what would really get her level back to what we know it can be is a victory over Serena.

:bounce: :bounce: I wanna be sedated.... :bounce: :bounce:

Beyond that, I will only say that I am a very superstitious creature, that I feel a migraine, or encephalitis, or SARS or something coming on and may have to miss work tomorrow, and that we can discuss the issue on Wedn, Fr some future date.

Now you can bann the people I dont like :D

Jun 2nd, 2003, 01:38 PM

Jun 2nd, 2003, 01:45 PM
If Venus needs somebody new to practice with I may be available :wavey:

If I were a Venus fan, of course I would want the player who beat my fave to win the whole thing. :wavey:
