She was top seed and it was a Tier 3 but she did her job here this week, winning comfortably in straight sets in every match and it will be good for her confidence going into RG when the tougher matches come. Good luck at RG, Venus :)

This just shows what a champion Venus isn't. Can you say Maria Sharapova? I mean, yeah, it's a title, but she had nobody to beat, and I think that it shows the whole tour that she isn't confident with her game.

With that being said, I hope Venus KILLS everybody at the French Open. I have a feeling that when she gets her game together, she's gonna get some sweet revenge on the WHOLE tour!

Also, she's played well all week and this is great
preparation for her leading to Paris and some
confidence! :D

PFFFF
Playing a small tournament and loosing in quarter would have showed that Vénus is really OUT...

but playin' a small tournament and winning it loosing 12 games is a pretty good thing I think...VEnus is a pretty good clay court player...and if she is just at 80% at the french she will show taht she is stil a great PLAYER

DEETHELICK
May 21st, 2005, 05:11 PM
Great win. Its something like this that is needed to help build form.

But the clay of RG is much more unforgiving. I hope Venus can use this to translate into some success at RG, but not when she meets Elena D ;)

Nope, her first title was a Tier 3 in Oklahoma in 1998, she defended her title in '99 , and she won Thalgo Australia Women's Hardcourt in '02.

GREAT JOB VEE! :bounce: :bounce:

I think what's not being said/recognized is that Venus won on clay...AGAIN!
...against clay court players.
Many here said that she would lose, or that if she didn't win, then her career was over. SO WHERE ARE THESE SAME PEOPLE NOW?! A BIT EMBARRASSING ISN'T IT!

Wishful thinking from haters, or faulty analysis by amateurs---
Either way, Venus has shown herself, non-believers, and ill-wishers, that she's still a champion to be reckoned with. :worship: :kiss:
