Here is a question for those who saw Venus' match against Elena during the NASDAQ Open, and against K-Lina last week.

I know the twist last Saturday is probably fresh in everyone's mind, but do you remember the twist during the NASDAQ? How would you compare the two. Meaning, which do you think was worse? I didn't see the NASDAQ twist and although I saw Berlin's, I have nothing to compare it with. I saw the Australian twist (poor child, she's all twisted up) but that was very minor compare to the Berlin twist.

Bottomline: If the NASDAQ twist didn't prevent her from playing two weeks later, would the Berlin twist do so? Am I making any sense?

For those who saw both matches, and remember the twists, could you give some insights?

The Nasdaq right ankle twist was worse, but Venus had that ankle taped when she twisted it so it didn't twist to badly. The left ankle twist she suffered at GO didn't look as severe as the Nasdaq twist, but the ankle wasn't taped like the right ankle was so it could have possibly caused more damage.

The Nasdaq was NOT worse at all. That was a mild sprain. This one at Berlin was downright ugly.

Exactly!! Did you hear that unusual squeal from her?? The horror on her face said it all.

Can't comment. Here in Canada, we didn't get to see the GO Vee-Sprem match. :mad: :( :mad:

This doesn't sound good at all, but I'm still very hopeful that it's not bad enough to keep her out of the FO.

It might. She came out on court the next day before the finals on crutches. She also said on a Eurosport interview that she doesn't know if she can play RG, but she wants to. She also said that she's never hurt her ankle this badly. So, unless she's playing oppossum, she may not play RG. :sad:

Australian Twist, NASDAQ Twist, Berlin Twist.....sounds like Venus should give up dancing and just stick to tennis. ;)

the twist in berlin seemed far worse. she was sliding out wide and just completely twisted it. she was obviously in pain, but her muscles were still warm so she could play with it...

What was this stuff on Eurosport today (commentary on Jen;s match( about "career ending" injury? Doubt if Venus has told anyone how bad it is so where did they get the rumour from and why broadcast it unless you think its true. Very odd. Didn't sound credible.
