Still, looking at it now, it's pretty funny :lol: - LOL @ Venus.

That was trully funny. But I could understand why jen stared, she had clawed her way back from 0/40 on Venus serve by making some incredible returns to get to deuce only for Venus, (probably mad at herself) to serve an unreturnable. Jen needed time to think coz venus had the advantage, and Venus seemed to say 'You think!', and sent another booming serve to consolidate a break.
Two years on still funny :lol:

Aaah....those were the days...Venus with her poker face! I think she does that better than Serena. I love Serena┤s emotions, but what happened to her at the French, wouldn┤t have ever happened with Venus. Venus would have just put her poker face and totally shut the crowd down.

I must have seen this match about 100 times over this poast two years. I have many, many matches, but for some reason this is my ultimate favourite. It's not that the tennis is that great, because Vee didn't give Jen a chance to do anything, but it's absolute demolition... and I love that!! Jen could have been number 1 if she had won that match, and she was playing at her very best, and yet, she got run over by the Venus express.

And yes, Venus backhand was just out of this world!! What a beauty!!

I would love to see that Serena staredown at the French playing Momo. I missed that one. I heard it's even better.

No you have it wrong.

Serena is the princess warrior, she's a fighter and she stares you down regardless of what you do.

Venus is the Queen and she is regal. She is stately and calm in all situations, and she will only stare you down if you do something that she does not appreciate.

:lol: Man I cannot wait for them to get back!!! :sad:

The thing about it is that Venus is one of the slowest up to serve in the top ten. She plays relatively slow compared to the others. Capriati of all people shouldn't be complaining of someone playing too fast. I think maybe was she wanted to slow down was the velocity of Venus' first serve, but sadly Venus didn't comply.

She was up 4-1 in the first then all of a sudden she was down

6-4 3-2, and Venus was quickly making it 4-2 in the second.

She was utterly frustrated and totally without offense. She was so perplex and out of whack that she then decided to throw Venus out of her game and focus so that she could get some games in and probably win.

Her strategy did not work.

Venus only looked at her when she decided not to get into position to receive Venus' serve and then she just stared Vee down. Jen started that stare down. No I have this urge to go and watch that match again. Last night I was watching Vee and Dani at the AO and Mary butch Carrilo was ranting and raving about Dani like she was the best thing since slice bread. When they had 3 games each you could hear the glee in mary, and pams voice they were rooting for Dani to beat Venus but Venus was not having that, all they were talking about was the year before AO when the match went to 3 sets and not once did they mention that Vee was hurt. But all pam was talking about was how Jen's eye surgery cause her to lose early.

Then at one point Drysdale pump in and said that Serena and Venus put a betting on Dani in a couple of tournaments. He also mentioned the U.S. where Serena really kill her in that match. Anyway, when Venus won that match 6-4 6-3 you could hear a pin drop in the both pam and mary did not say a word it was like dead silence. Now Dani can't even beat a fly on the tennis court.

No kidding.....Venus sure heard all the talk about Dani this and Dani that...also the crowd was booing and stuff. Just went about her business and beat wanna-be model Dani in straight sets.

You┤re right....Dani got TOTALLY crushed by Serena at the Open....even more than she already got at Wimbledon.

Venus looked at Cappy first, but not to stare her down, just to wait for her to get in position to receive serve. Venus was a little pissed off because Capriati kept repeatedly asking for time and then Capriati was rude when she said "I'm not ready" So Venus just decided to stare at her until she was ready. Normally a player will back off the line or bounce the ball or something when their opponent asks for time, but since Cappy wanted to be rude Venus was just going to stare at her like she was stupid until she decided she was ready.

You never saw the match and you don't know how many times Capriati held her hand up taking extra time. Then in that clip she very rudely said "I'm not ready" like Venus was going to serve without her being ready for it. Who won the match has nothing to do with that staredown. I contradicted myself in no way in my post. Read it again. You just think I have something against Capriati because me and Trish go back and forth and talk shit, but me and her have an understanding and we don't really mean what we are saying about each other's favorites.

What staredown? I watched the video 3 times and saw nothing different than normal from both players. Capriati having her bitchy face and Venus having her fugly face.

Are you kidding? Even McEnroe commented on the staredown. I think he said something like, "that was just a staredown, and it looks like Venus won." :lol:

I will have to watch this one again. The match wasn't great, but the intensity of the match was electrifying.

The crowd was so pro-Capriati, and in the first set Capriati tried to over power Venus. She made a huge mistake in trying to do that. It was working at first, but she could not keep up the energy level, and once Vee started to put them thangs on her she could not handle it.

:lol:

I'm sorry, but I have to agree here. For sure, Venus cleaned Jen's clock that day. I will give her that but I've never seen the match, and if that is this "staredown" that people here have been talking about, then that was pretty weak. It did not look like a staredown at all. My questions is - Why is this being posted now? I know this was the last time Venus won a slam, and probably will be her last, but I'm unsure as to why it's here now?! :confused:

And why are some of you getting off on this? It's hardly even funny. I don't even know what it is and Jen totally shanked that return anyway.

Jen at least won a more recent slam. Venus won 4 out of 6 slams and then no more for 2 years plus. Being the runner up sure is a nice feat though :rolleyes: You're queen has certainly been relegated to questionable. I know Jen has taken a dive since then, butI'm not going to compare Jen to Venus when It's obvious they both have one thing in common - No GS titles in 2 years and a spiraling career! At least Venus can live vicariously through her more successful sister!

Venus since 2001 has also gone somewhat the way of Capriati. 8 slams and counting since her last victory(7 for Jen :bounce: ). Of course she has numerous Tier II titles to hold her over.

This is exactly why the tread was created. Jen tried to intimidate Venus and Venus blasted one of those patiented serves directly into the body.

It sure does. I just don't get why people are here calling Jen a fool and how stupid she looked because...what? She lost a match two years ago?! To Venus?! So what? Venus has lost matches before, too. Jen was outplayed, that is fine, it's tennis. But how does Jen look stupid for doing that? Everytime a player loses to another player, they are stupid? And somehow I need to get over myself for saying that. Take the tape of of your little smiley face and let me know, please.

I agree Venus did nothing special, she always beats Capriati. The series of backhands that put her back in the match were simply amazing.

Would someone please post that clip(s) I love the one where McEnroe says Capriati was standing there and still could only watch that backhand blow right by her.

Venus' career is not spiraling. Making GS finals consistently and easily is not the sign of a spiraling player. Serena has obviously been better in those slam finals save for Wimbledon where Venus couldn't keep up because of her injuries. I don't see Capriati making it past the QF consistently. I know Jen is your fave and is in a tough place right now, but don't try to drag Venus down to her level because neither of them has won a slam in a while.

oh i remember this match so well, venus' backhand was so on, it had jennifers number.

at one point it was a great really, and venus blasted this backhand up the line to jen's forehand, jen barely gets it back and the crowd is in aw, but venus blasts the ball right back where she sent it, jennifer has to be like inches from the ball, this is how bad venus had her faked out. jennnifer just couldn't hang with venus this day. this venus was just too good, backhand forehand, serve and all. the sisters just took over the usopen during 2001.

I haven't said that Jen's career has me in a bad mood. The woman is a multi-millionaire that has the best job ever, and somehow I should be jaded if she happens to lose close matches or gets blown away by someone? Sure, I like when she wins, but it has no effect on my life. So go ahead and try to hurt me by saying how bad her tennis is. I am unaffected by it all. Unlike yourself.

Again, should I feel bad that Jen almost won the US Open but fell apart? Should I feel hurt by what you said? Obviously you were hurt with what I said about Venus and if you have hurt feelings when someone has a negative (but true) thing to say about someone you will never know, then that is truly sad. Trying to make me feel bad for people that have more money than they know what to do with and crazy people like you adoring their every fart is all that they need. Get a grip. You can say whatever you want about Jen. I enjoy watching her play and I root for her. But I don't become offended when someone tries to hurt me by attacking her. Silly fucker.

I didn't say Jen's losing had you in a bad mood. I am unaffected by Venus and Serena's successes/failures also. I am not childish enough to try and hurt someone by saying their favorite plays bad tennis and once again I just said Jenny was having a tough time right now. I don't understand why you are so heated.

Infinti, you just should avoid these people.

Also the staredown was discussed when it first occured. It was hilarious then, and it's hilarious now.

I think what made it so funny was Jen kept putting her hand up to signal she was not ready. So when she put her hand up the last time Venus paused and looked at her like she was crazy, it was a pretty long pause. lol Then the camera flashed back at Jen and she was cussing to herself looking like "WHATEVER", and then they flipped it back to Venus and she batted her eyes and proceeded too serve.

I could not stop laughing when I originally saw the staredown. I am gonna have to watch this one again.

:lol:
