Re: Venus Williams withdraws from Madrid

I have the perfect background to address this. Bachelor's degree in Dietetics and PharmD.

I don't think her diet has anything to do with her being more injury proned. It's the autoimmune disease...

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol30

At this point in her career, yes. Have you watched Venus prior to Sjogrens? Lightning fast around the court.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol30

Ok, the commentator clearly doesn't know anything. "One area that Venus has always struggled in is her lack of mobility." :tape:

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol30

This match just screams the R word. Venus is so FAR away from playing top 20 tennis and I fear that she will never get back there. The older she gets, compounded with a disease that saps energy,...

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol30

Earth to Serena: Move you feet enough to get into position and crack the first shot you can. No running and you usually win the point. Enough of this passive, just making her groundstrokes....

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol30

This match reminds me an awful lot of Serena vs Sloane at AO this year. Same level of play. Serena injured and can barely serve. Goes up 6-3 2-0 and then starts getting affected by an injury. It's...

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol30

I don't understand this passive play. Where is her aggression? She's playing like a slow counterpuncher.

Re: Sam Smith - None of the new crop of players are athletes

Oh absolutely. She was able to hide her flaws and get away with a less complete game in the early 2000's simply because her power was too much to handle for most of the girls. Venus is stubborn and...

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol30

So what the fuck was Serena's deal up until 2-6 1-4? Is she trying to test herself? Like bitch, stop walking around feeling sorry for yourself. As soon as Richard moved courtside, Serena stepped up....

I think it's her back. And yes, Patrick is court side.

Re: Miami R4: Li Na d. Garbine Muguruza 7-6 6-2

I think Na needs to take a Xany any time she gets a little nervous with a lead. Like couldn't come close to finding the court when she had a lead in the first set.

Re: Sam Smith - None of the new crop of players are athletes

Federer has been turned in more of a baseliner because of it. Trust me, if Roger was able to play Rafa on the surfaces of the 90's, the head-to-head would be a bit different.

Re: Sam Smith - None of the new crop of players are athletes

The ATP slowed the courts down to discourage matches from being all the players with big serves. The top players of the 90's played a completely different brand of tennis compared to the current...

Re: Sam Smith - None of the new crop of players are athletes

As a fan of Venus since 2000, I have noticed how the surface homogenization, along with injuries and disease, have contributed to inconsistent results post-2003. She used to be a great hard court...

Re: Sam Smith - None of the new crop of players are athletes

The problem is two-fold. The way tennis is taught these days and racquet technology. Both contribute to developing one-dimensional games that rely on heavy topspin groundstrokes. The imagination,...

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol29

From *2-4 down, Venus really turned it on. Started off by being more consistent and then slowly began pouring on the controlled aggression. Good match to build on.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol29

Venus is really playing a lot better. Serving could use a little work, except that bomb out wide on break point. She's still coming out of her coil too soon when trying to hit the big flat ones....

Venus is picking up her return game when she needs to. Two aggressive returns from 30-30 to 6-4. Well done Vee!

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol29

Venus still looks a little slow out there. But controlling her errors and Magda isn't playing nearly as well. She played a very loose game at *4-3 to get broken.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol29

Venus looks a little sluggish. Might be feeling the effects of yesterday's long match.
