It's hard to watch Venus become such a shadow of her former self;I believe that we'd see MUCH different results if it weren't for the Sjogren's.Was never a huge fan of hers in the past...and I might raise an eyebrow to the quasi-religious cult she belongs to...but there's no questioning her sincerity,in my mind,as she goes with her sis to Africa to open schools and improve the plight of so many poor,marginalized women there...making a REAL difference,as opposed to some of those fake-ass,slutty glamour girls who do a couple photo-ops with children and act as if it's some sort of absolution for having such a shallow,spoiled life
She hasn't forgotten about other African-American females who are in the same boat that she once was in,and I really like her intentions in creating an affordable clothing line that doesn't limit its utility by pushing the sexy envelope way too far.
Fraudulent jokes like AI and Lisicki should be ashamed of themselves with their litany of concocted bullshit or highly-exaggerated injury excuses.What an immense contrast between those lazy,hollow p.r. seekers and Venus--who has absolutely nothing to prove...is past the retirement age for the average WTA player...is dealing with a serious illness that robs her of strength & stamina and could even become fatal.....and yet she keeps battling even though she can rarely produce the caliber of tennis that she once did.We shouldn't hold our breath with the kind of gutless weenies that comprise the tennis media;however,I'd love to catch an article--required reading for Stacy Allaster
--on how Venus is the polar opposite of the dime-a-dozen cover girls of the WTA

Ste. Kim, we didn't have you for long enough, but we appreciate what you gave us
Don't you just love it when someone rambles aimlessly for 5 minutes and then says, "To make a long story short"?
