Venus doesn't seem to have the same fight --- desire --- that she used to have. I love her game, but wonder whether she can go the distance in the Grand Slams, especially against the crop of young turks nipping at her heals. Your thoughts?

yup, she's done for it...... her fans are devestated and we will just have to cajole ourselves with her stellar career. :shrug:


NEXT...... :wavey:

oh btw, how long before your next bitchfest about how bad you are being treated on this board? Just wondering when I can get my next laugh? :D

She's won 4 tournies and reached the SF in Miami since last fall, actually i think her fight and desire came back now, they were lacking in the past 4-5 years. Where have you been hiding?:lol:

one word:

WIMBLEDON

She has said she wants more, that 5 isn't enough. So she still has fight, maybe not for the day in-day out grind of the tour (particularly clay), but no one should ever question her desire to dominate Wimbledon. This is even if you assume she has lost her fight for everything else, which I feel she hasn't.

Agreed.
She's done. She'll be lucky to get past second round at SW19.

Do we need another stupid poll like this, just because she lost early in Charleston ? Venus will be THE favourite at Wimbledon, therefore this thread should be deleted.

She might not be done and hopefully she can muster the fight, I'm just not sure. She's 29 now and there are many contenders 8-11 years her junior. And the last few times, she seems not like her old self where winning looked almost effortless. It's worth hearing all views about this topic, regardless.

I thought this was an attempted joke, that was just an epic fail.

'Passed her peak' and 'never win another slam' are different things. In 2000, Martina Hingis won nine tournaments, including five Tier I's, and the YEC, and was ranked #1 almost every week of the year. But was already, unbeknowst to us, in the part of her career where she'd 'never win another slam'. Kinda hard to argue she was 'passed her peak' though, isn't it?

In 2000 Yes.
