First round and second round looking good! QF will be tough with Vekic/Barty. Liking the draw. Let’s do this.

Again I don't usually pay attention to grass court warmups but that looks like Wimbledon to me. Isn't that a roof. Does Birmingham look like that?

I'm 98% sure it's Wimbledon, Eastbourne didn't have that Emerald green colour on the constructions last year and is more of an 'open court' so to speak. Smaller too. But I was just confused as to whether she went back to Wimbledon after Paris, or if she filmed that video when she did the exho (and thus knew she was going to play a grass warm-up even before Roland Garros).

That's a pretty decent draw! Do NOT like Barty / Vekic being there but you can't have everything, and I got my wish of Wang Qiang being her seed lol. It's just a tough field in general though. If she can't go all the way to the title it's just good to get some matches in on grass before Wimbledon anyway.

Let's go girls

Definitely Wimbledon.
You can tell from the roof/court architecture.
Birmingham's pretty small tournament as far as I know - they wouldn't have a roof

Her hair is definitely her hair now she said not have those braids at the Court 1 celebration and her current posts have that hair.

How far is Birmingham from London?

They usually get a house for Wimbledon maybe she got it already and using that as a base cause I doubt she going back to Florida before Wimbledon starts

Re: Veesus Christ Chat Thread Vol # 6 - Make American Tennis Great Again | TrumpNus 2

Yeah, she was training at the AELTC for the past few days. They posted some pics of her rackets being strung. Given the dreary/rainy weather all week, she probably chose London because they have superior indoor facilities?

Her event in Paris concluded about an hour ago. It was live streamed but I didn't watch it. Hopefully she'll be on a flight to Birmingham ASAP.

Draw is alright. No easy opponents (unless R2 Wang loses her opener vs the qualifier, perhaps) but it's definitely a workable draw, and could've been much worse.

Also have yall seen that the family of that man who died in the car accident Venus was in is now trying to sue and blame like the city/government officials about not fixing the roads right or something
I think that's a more reasonable approach to take versus suing Venus. If I recall the accident happened because of the weird way the lights worked.

I don't blame the family for wanting compensation.

Where 👏🏻 Is 👏🏻 The 👏🏻 Draw? It better be a Q / Q / Unseeded / Unseeded type of draw!

I actually think Venus does like Wozniacki. They aren't bffs but she is one of the few Serena players Venus is actually warm to and acknowledges :lo: Vee was def invited but probably didn't go due to tennis.

Venus got a BYE for the wedding. Honestly I hate going to weddings anyway so I like to imagine Venus felt she had better things to do with her time too. Looks like not even Agatha R went.

...Who?

Well she hasn’t played at all since Miami... let’s trust she knows what she is doing.

I’ve got one of those throwback gems for y’all

Q. You're now playing somebody that most people think is the favorite, Venus Williams. Up until now you've played many players who you're expected to beat. How is that different for you?
DINARA SAFINA: Well, it's just really to go out there. It's 50/50 match. You know, enjoy and play the best, because I know to beat her I have to play my best tennis.
So just to go out there and, you know, do what I can do.

Q. What do you mean a 50/50 match?
DINARA SAFINA: Like this. If I play my best and she plays the best, it's 50/50 who gonna win the match. I don't think if I play my best tennis and she plays the best tennis that she's the favorite. I think I still have a chance.
