Yeah, so when we hear Vee's grunts we'll know that Monica was her inspiration!:):D

What a high quality match from two champions!:D

After venus' first matces ever year ago as a 15 year old she said she wanted to just go for it like Monica. I think Monica was off the tour at this time.

Venus fans--is this the first we've heard that Monica was V's fave as a kid? I thought Serena said so, but I never heard it from Venus before. Just wondering.

Better watch out--More Seles fans may become "crossover" Venus fans after hearing this. ;)

I always thought that Seles was a huge favorite of Venus's she always speaks so highly of her. Also Seles is a classy player who speaks bad about nobody and I think Venus is the same way. Just two great competitors, great word VENUS!! You make me so proud to be your#1 fan!!!:D

No, I once heard Venus say this a long time ago, I forget when. And I also heard her remark about mocking her grunt after Monica before.

When Monica beat Venus at Oz this year, both Venus and her mom went to Monica and said, "We really want you to win the title now."

Venus is an incredible champion. I'm sure Monica feels honored to hear such words coming from Venus.
