Yay. More chances at the Daphne and the 2 Mixed Slams

But in all seriousness, I hope she keeps playing as long as she keeps enjoying it day in, day out.

2 more days until the draws

Please just keep doing a limited slams/Miami/Rome/FedCup singles schedule for as long as you want.

It'd be so fun if she were still playing singles in 2016 though. 2008 feels like so long ago.... imagine what we'll be saying in another 4 years.

If you like the upload please vote for me in the TWAT contest

And sound is out of sync in parts 1&3, sorry about that, but I'm not going to fix it.
FINALLY watched it.

1st MP - Hingis hits forehand return into the ground.
2nd MP - Long rally ending with forehand DTL winner by Vee.
3rd MP - Vee slices a stretch backhand back at Martina who hits forehand swing volley into net.
4th MP - Vee hits big forehand cross court that forces the forehand from Martina into the net.

MP for Vee - Second serve that Martina hits the forehand return long off on.

14 gorgeous winners from Vee in that match. 4 forehands, 5 backhands, a smash, 2 volleys, a forehand swing volley, ace.


Loving the red, white, and blue everything. I would love if she did it for whenever she plays Fed Cup too.

Tomorrow are the Draws

Hopefully Vee will be given a kind draw in singles and a good draw in Doubles as well.

Come on Vee, go get some more gold medals!

FAIL @ the doubles seeds. Kerber/Lisicki got a top 5 seed purely because of their singles rankings. Sabine is a decent doubles player (Stuttgart title, Wimbledon F when she used to play with Stosur in 2011) but Kerber is one of the least accomplished doubles players in the draw. Pathetic. Hopefully Venus and Serena draw them and take their spot in the draw.

Maybe a good thing though is that they're 100% going to be in Errani/Vinci's half. They aren't too strong on grass.

Who cares about the seed, they are going to win it anyway. How many times have they done it before? Bring them.

Oh my God at that pressed hater in GM, the one with the "classy" signature. Usually I ignore him, but this time I made sure I bring it, and I know brought it. It's fun to be part of the Venus Defense Department. Stay pressed haters.

Don't worry about it. Most people have lots of respect for Venus, including yours truly who happens to be a big Hingis fan.

Not worried at all about who they will draw in doubles... BRING IT!!!

Actually even in the singles, I'm not worried about who she'll play at all, Venus has already lost in R1 at Wimbledon and we all survived, I'm not saying she will lose here I'm just saying that I am not worried at all, she can beat Everyone on grass and this being the Olympics she WILL be very hungry, the only opponent will be Sjogrens
