I agree. Barring injury, Venus WILL be number 1 this year, even for a short period of time. Venus has no points to defend this summer except for 180 points from the Olympics. All of the other top players will be defending their 2008 pointsI have been following Venus's career since 1998.
Here are some of the improvements I have seen in the last month.
Venus Forehand - has a lot more topspin than years past but still can flatten the shot out when she needs too.
- Venus has started using better angles on the court.
- Venus has a kick serve now....(for the second serve.)
- Venus's confidence is definitely back (which is great to see)
I'm going to make a prediction and say that Venus will be #1 in the world again this year. Even Richard Williams said that.....and we know that Richard know his sh*t.
