I'm happy she came back, was able to come back and as a fan, made me realize how lucky I am. I'm glad she's healthy and has the spirit for the game still. Venus just needs time and more on court play. She will be fine.

oh lord, it took me all weekend to get over this. I admit, I was being a "bad" fan and not even wanting to be the least bit happy for lisa raymond for a great match and a great win.

but there, I said it, great match by lisa and great win by her. really.

it just took he a bit, um, by surprise shall we say.

I tried to take as much good from that match as possible. The 14 aces that venus had in that match was very impressive, and I am glad that she has decided to go for her second serves. I'd rather see her miss a 80mph second serve than see her put in a 60 mph second serve, it's almost the same as double faulting. In the back of my head I keep hearing Martina N. telling Lisa R. to throw "junk" at Venus. I remember during the 2001 Wimbledon match against Martina Hingis, when asked how she would play Venus, Martina N. replied "I would junk Venus. I would throw in a few slices, some no paced returns. etc.

it's Monday, a new week, and I've had ample time to deal and reflect. I think I was in shock during the whole tiebreak and Venus teased me with that Ace to start the tiebreak...but alas, she's out. It's okay...and I can now say that my expectations WERE TOO HIGH. But I will also say that I was impressed by some of the things she's tweaked in her game. When she was serving up those ace bombs in the second set, her head was staying up and she KNEW she needed that next gear...but at that point in the match, it was too late. She needed that from the beginning against a VERY motivated Lisa Raymond. I know have a new hatred for NAV b/c I think she is so threatened by the sisters and the attention they take away from her. But whatever, I digress.

I think Venus will be very eager to avenge that defeat in her upcoming tournaments...one step at a time Vee. I think the Nasdaq 100 will be where the sisters begin reclaiming their respective thrones atop the WTA tour. Hopefully Venus will turn it around on Serena there like baby sis did two years ago. All in due time girls.

By the way, Lisa Raymond played a helluva match. props. And who was the blonde weaved lady sitting in front of Oracene during the match?? I've never seen her before.

Venus has had a much much much bigger loss in the past five months than this and she still came back to play tennis. This loss was nothing compared to the loss of her sister. If she can cope with that loss and still move foreward, then losing a tennis match surely will not kill her spirit. I like what I'm seeing in Venus even with the losses. To me she could lose a thousand matches and she will still be a great player. No amount of losses can ever take away her abilities.
