Awsome Shot!!!!!!!!!!

Jun 25th, 2003, 02:33 PM
Not Finished, and the after pose was good for us to see b/c Venus is so emotionless. Go VENUS!

Jun 25th, 2003, 02:34 PM
lol.....that pose showed attitude....I loved it!

Jun 25th, 2003, 02:34 PM
She was kinda like....Did I just hit that? And then....Oh yeah, girl, that was me!

That was awesome...loved the look of disbelief on her face... :hearts:

Pam cracked me up with her comment afterwards lol

Jun 25th, 2003, 02:38 PM
OMG! That forehand winner that Venus jsut hit....I'm gonna try to hit that today when I play! =P

Love it Infiniti...She's playing some inspired tennis, b/c her opponet is pretty good, and Venus hasn't dropped serve.

Keep it up Vee

Jun 25th, 2003, 02:43 PM
And another Good SHot Overhead on the Line! Damn Venus!

Jun 25th, 2003, 02:46 PM
Shes playing really good. Srebotnik is too. But some good stats from Venus and only 4 Unforced Errors and 1 double fault compared to 11 winners and 3 aces. KEEP IT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!

That picture is priceless and that shot was out of this world for vee and the reaction even better! That reaction deserves a commercial!

also katerian is pretty good and has a strategy! I love her serve and volley tactics. Vee should do that more too.

Jun 25th, 2003, 02:57 PM

After the shot she said Venus was looking pretty swift in the Diane v. Furstenburg...it was the way she said it...sweet :)

Venus hit an awkward one handed back hand with slice...the ball was almost out of reach and with the flick of her wrist she makes something amazing happen....

To her/our shock the ball craftily stayed in... :eek: :bounce:

Jun 25th, 2003, 03:04 PM
I'm so happy Venus serve is holding up. She only had 1 deuce game so far and has yet to face a breakpoint!

Jun 25th, 2003, 03:04 PM

That pic is priceless! I hope I'll get to see the repeat this evening as I'm at work right now.

Jun 25th, 2003, 03:13 PM
Awsome Match from Queen Vee and Katrina(sp)...but Vee was too good today and the forehand was on! Solid Match and didnt face a BP the whole match.

Loved what I saw from Venus today!!! She looked sooooo good out there! She will only get better! It was great to see her daddy looking after her...looks like his presence is helping. :hearts:

Jun 25th, 2003, 03:16 PM
Also, positive stat, Venus had 10 UE's the whole match....negative stat, she was 48% on first serve, but positive stat...she Won 60% of her Second Serves.

She converted 4 or 9 break pts.
and 8 of 11 at net. Would love to see the net stat in the 20's and 30's. Oh, and 19 winners.

Jun 25th, 2003, 03:23 PM
Why has Srebotnik(sp?) only won one match at Wimbledon(=)? Her grass court game is nice.

I saw it "live" and I will rewatch it on tape.

Simply AMAZING VENUS and u beat a quality opponent too. A good second round match.:)

Jun 25th, 2003, 03:35 PM
its funny, in that pic, I see the family resemblance to Serena.
usually I don't think they look anything alike, but that picture is quite 'serena-like' in a way..

anyway, can't wait to see the shot!

Jun 25th, 2003, 03:37 PM
OMG that pic... = PRICELESS! I am hugging my vcr tape and I'm at work... I set my vcr to tape at 10 AM and I was right on the money and the match is right after Serena's 1R, damn I'm good!

I cannot wait to see that point... ROFL! GO VENUS!

Jun 25th, 2003, 04:16 PM
that was a great shot.. loved her attitude. I remember 2001/2002 when Venus was winning fairly easily, Vee would accept her errors as part of the game but now she is expecting more from herself.

I liked Katrina's (?) game, I wish Venus would S + V

It was a solid win but there is still room for Venus to raise her game, I see that as a positive thing to look out for.

Jun 25th, 2003, 10:32 PM
more pics from Vee's match :p


Bored Serena


Fist pump


Jun 25th, 2003, 10:56 PM
Everybody was amazed with that shot!!!! But what was priceless was Venus reaction. She couldn't believe herself that this one-handed sliced backhand had stayed in!

YOU GO GIRL!!!!!! Now do the same to petrova!!!!!! :)

Jun 25th, 2003, 11:13 PM
It was even better live.....I also liked when they replayed it in slow motion. The Venus reaction was priceless.

Jun 25th, 2003, 11:15 PM
What's up with Serena? Love the head wrap---but I wouldn't pay $250.00 for it.

That's an awesome picture. I haven't seen the shot. I hope they show it in highlights. :(

Also Serena looks grumpy. hehe!

Jun 25th, 2003, 11:52 PM
lol, that was a funny reaction from Venus....awesome point tho

Actually I don't think that was a slice backhand. She hit it flat a la Henin or Mauresmo. That's what was so amazing about the shot. Plus the fact that she was running top speed at the time.

Jun 26th, 2003, 05:29 AM
I just loved that shot and Venus' reaction, Wonderful! :bounce:

Jun 26th, 2003, 05:46 AM
Venus played AMAZING tennis today, I also like the way she moved. She needs to keep growing with each match.

I can't wait to see her match vs Petrova.

GO VENUS! :worship:

Jun 26th, 2003, 06:01 AM
:cool: Venus' now "infamous shot" was shown on every sports news highlight all evening. It was also one of the "Royal Shots" of the day!!! Today, it seemed as if the "old" Venus was on Centre Court, and what a delight to have the "old" Venus back...!!! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Jun 26th, 2003, 12:56 PM
thanks for the pics and video... I could watch that shot all day... when I went home, I rewound that part on my tape at least 5 times... her reaction was greater than the shot... It made me smile! Great stuff, Venus!

Jun 26th, 2003, 01:20 PM
first of all, that was some of the best tennis I have seen venus play all year long. and that one shot really turned it on for her. her forehand was awesome, and she seemed to have a lot of confidence in it.
I was thrilled to see her playing like that. it was great to see.

It was definitely not a slice. She hit that ball like she would hit any other ball, except with one hand. She didn't bring the racket from high to low, causing slice; she hit it from low to high, like she does 99% of the time, except with one hand.

And it was all over the news, especially here in NYC. They NEVER, and I mean NEVER, mention tennis unless there is a major upset, but they made sure they showed that point. :)
