Congratulations to Venus for fighting so hard even when she obviously wasn't at her best. That is the mark of a great champion, as monica said after the match.

Also also a nod to her for her gracious comments, which is nothing surprising, since she does that all the time, but some people still don't accept it, so it's worth mentioning.

Way to Go Venus!

I am so proud of you and your fighting spirit! Most would have retired. You are truly an "A" #1 sportswoman!

Well, I haven't seen the match yet, nor have I read the interview,but it sounds like it was hard fought on both sides.
I think Venus is always gracious - both in defeat and in victory. (So is Seles, for that matter.)

Good match, VENUS. I was very impressed how well VENUS played her matches while obviously injured and under some discomfort.

VENUS, get back to full power and take Roland Garros!!

Venus does deserve credit...


The Venus that so many non fans usually complain about - quitting matches, pulling out etc, really has to be reevaluated after seeing her stay and fight it out against mOnica like that..


BOTH players were fighting their own demons - Monica's cold sounded awful in her press confereence, and Venus was ina bit of discomfort, but she was still fit enough to be competitive in lots of long, searching rallies...

But credit to Venus for fighting like a champion...She won brownie points in my book...

Yes, Venus made gracious comments and fought throughout the match, but she lost because Monica played better, not because of an injury that didn't have any visible effect.

Agreed, Venus is a classy girl:)

It's a shame some people insist on judging certain players by some remarks they made years ago as an inxeperienced teenager.

Thanks to all the classy fans who are man and women enough to give Venus Credit:)


Czechfan thank you for your kind words about Venus. Even though you don't care for her at least you had the guts and heart to come in here and give credit where it's due. :)

I am so proud her. She really went out there and gave it her all.
As far as I'm concerned she has nothing to hang her head about.
We have to play with the cards we are given, and that's what she did.

love ya Venus!!

and Congrats to Monica on a great match!!

Well said Moon, I wish though that more tennis fans, Monica fans would come in here though and give her credit. You know if it were anyone else this topic would be packed with praise. Sad though that more people dislike Venus more so then Love tennis.

Venus was great!!! I SO enjoyed this match with two great champions, each fighting adversity of her own, both leaving EVERYTHING on the court, without any griping, fussing, whining, arguing -- two professionals doing NOTHING AT ALL EXCEPT playing tennis -- beautiful, wonderful, hard-fought tennis! :hearts: :hearts: :hearts: :hearts: :hearts:

WOW!! It was so refreshing! Get better soon, Vee! :kiss:

So Venus lost? What was the score? Where was I? I knew I was supposed to watch something last night.

Congrats to the winner, (Monica?) and good fighting from the defeated one (don't like the word loser) since I heard it was a tough macth.

And I missed it! :(
