Um, yes, but to the best of my recollection Kvitova wasn't almost 36 years old at the time.

She is approaching 36 so no, unfortunately.

Why bump it now? If she was ever to win another major...it was never gonna be at the Oz open. Wimby, Wimby....only hope left.

How is that relevant? We're talking about age, not injuries. Venus is 35, and no woman has won a GS at that age. And Venus hasn't even been a runner-up or at least a semi-finalist, in 6 years. Yes, she was a Quarter-finallist twice last year, but there is a large chasm between that and winning. Of course it's not impossible, but the chances of her all of a sudden breaking out to win a major are slim to say the least.

A fair question in 2012, today...not so much.

It has to be at Wimby...because at the other majors: her game gets exposed too easily.

Re: Will Venus Williams ever win a singles title at a Major again?

The main thing for Vee this year is to keep her ranking up & in the Top 8 or better all year. She needs the Top 8 ranking much more than the other girls do because of her health & age. And to be able to avoid most everyone like Rena, Pova, Kvit until it really matters.

Her entire focus should be on the slams and vulturing MMs to keep her ranking up. Especially during the clay season. I doubt she has 200 points to defend
