It's good to see Venus back

I like watching Venus play. When she is on she is the best player on tour IMO. She has such an all court game and it is a joy to watch. I am glad she is playing well again and hope she plays like this in 2009.

Re: It's good to see Venus back

She needs to get some first serves in really.
Her patchy serving and un-fathomable form just makes me go hormonal like a pregnant woman.

Re: It's good to see Venus back

She's 25-4 since the start of Wimbledon.

W-QF-QF-SF-1R-W-W/F.

For awhile I was getting very underwhelmed with Venus (her Wimbledon run is the worst run out of all her slams and yes I know Serena was a great win/match), especially with those two lame matches she lost in Beijing and New York, but since then I have no complaints.

It's been another excellent second half of the season for Venus. 2008 > 2007 for sure.

Her winning Zurich is still my favorite Vee moment all year. Maybe it'll be YEC tomorrow.

Re: It's good to see Venus back

I agree her confindence is back...Wimbledon has really helped her gain that confidence...I actually see her winning her first Australian and hopefully her first French..but that may be pushing it a little....but I know she can win the French.

She should already have a French Open title, in 2004

Re: It's good to see Venus back

Without Henin and Davenport.. and with her possibly getting over the mental hurdle of JJ and 3set matches..and with Serena not fulfilling her potential, Venus could possibly return to the top of the tour in 2009. I'm very hopeful.

The first step is winning tomorrow. Confidence has been her problem the last few years.. I think she's getting it back. I'm SO happy.

A big TOLD YA SO to the people who didnt believe me when I said Vee keeps better every year.

Re: It's good to see Venus back

i love how she keeps her cool, how she's in control.

whatever happens today, there's a lot of positive to take from this season.
i just hope that 2009 won't be a return to the patchy basics but a new start with more confidence and consistency.

she's too good not to compete & contend for ALL the big titles.

can't wait.

Indeed
Her QF against Myskina was terrible, but she played a great clay court season before

Re: It's good to see Venus back

Whilst I agree that its good to see Venus back, the best player one tour when she is on is still Serena.
