This is my first tournament thread ever in Planet Venus, so hopefully I'll bring her good luck
Venus' back seems to be fine, and she played a couple of good matches at the US Open.
Now it's time for Venus to build confidence and finally earn some ranking points again!
Also, winning a title would be fantastic, since she hasn't won a title in 2013 so far. But let's take it one match at a time.
She lost in the second round to Anastasia Pavlyunchenkova in 2009.

R1: Def. Mona Barthel 6-3 6-1
R2: Def. Victoria Azarenka 6-2 6-4
R3: Def. Simona Halep 4-6 7-5 6-3
QF: Def. Eugenie Bouchard 6-3 6-7(4) 6-3
SF: Lost to Petra Kvitova 6-3 3-6 6-7(2)

Re: Venus is ready to get her ranking up in Tokyo

Yes to the thread and yes to the gifs. Amen!

I just hope she mantains or raises her level of play during the US Open and that she is healthy enough to compete. Come on Venus, get the match play you desperately now these months!
