How can someone actually be this athletic? Insane ....
A gazelle!!! :love:

And no, it's unlikely MJ Fernandez would pick Venus unless she had to due to ranking. Aside from the fact that Venus basically ended her career at the 1999 US Open, MJ's husband is the CEO of Team8 (who manage Coco Gauff). I'm sure he has strong connections to other players too who are more willing to 'play the game' and do interviews and stuff.

Vee needs a top 3-4 slot, or to be ranked in the top 10 in doubles (a big ask considering all the dubs specialists, they would need a slam win or two). My concern is that - assuming the schedule next year remains largely intact - the eligibility period includes no grass season but TWO clay seasons and French Opens. Mess.

Dead @ Danielle's Colon getting banned from WTT for violating the rules and leaving the state. Especially after she criticised the Adria tour. 😭😂

Queenus just released her new, "BOLD Collection." Y'all already know how I feel. It's nice, but everything has looked the same since 2012. I really want her to give the girls a LOOK again. Queen was a trailblazer in tennis fashion in the 90s and 00s, a lot of her recent looks don't reflect that.

She found her niche on prints, but now she needs to work on her silhouettes. That’s what happens when you go too commercial. 👀

We can send her some options lmao.

Is it the silhouettes or the prints that's making everything look redundant?

She’ll never distance herself from prints as her value proposition. For me, the silhouettes are all similar because she has been using the same patterns for quite a while now.

What is the tea on DRC btw? I had her pegged as a MAGAT? So I figured she would ignore this. But maybe I am misjudging.

I want some more exciting designs for her last years on tour as well! But these more 'basic' cuts and prints are definitely what's making her bread and butter. I have a feeling the Moulin Rouge lacy number is not going to sell as well to the tennis mums in Connecticut.

I think we all thought she was because she gives off big Coco Vandeweghe energy and is SUCH a douchebag on the court. But she seems to do a lot of animal charity stuff and has a black niece/nephew, so maybe she's not as neo-nazi as we think?

Still, this is such a messy situation (especially her deleting instagram). And Venus needs to fix that 0-2 head to head. :(

She used to take a lot of bold chances and got utterly dragged for them. I can understand why she wants to be a bit safe but I agree it's been same-y recently.

They comin for the olympics. No way they’d be playing doubles in Kentucky otherwise. Do y’all think Mary Joe would put her on the team even if she’s not number 4?
I don't see it, as there wasn't a big deal about her virtually not qualifying in Feb/Mar.

Love the skirt as Vee looks so good in blue. I think her Linz 2000 outfit is one of my favourites ever so it’s a shame she hasn’t really worn more light blue over the course of her career.
The problem is that all her tops seem to have that same floaty silhouette for years already. Would love to see her in something more fitted but perhaps she has become a little self conscious about her body or just feels she has to dress a certain conservative way on court now.

She explored a few different 'top' cuts during the Sunshine Double last year. The halter neck, the polo tee, the double spaghetti straps on each side, the 'winged' look. It was some of her best stuff in years (especially the Isola one with the stripe down the middle :love: ).

Now that leggings are allowed on the tour and the weather will be cooler, I think we'll be seeing her in a bunch of long sleeve tops and leggings.

@donellcarey seems like Lexington is still going ahead, luckily!

PS it's World Sjogrens Day. 😭 😭 😭 😭 She and Solange should have a glass of prosecco together.

@shadownumber I believe the Olympics are starting back at zero? So all points from the resumption of the tour until the end of clay next year (I THINK) will count. Honestly another lucky break for Venus... hopefully she can take advantage this time.
Yesss one more chance for Venus! I'm hoping beyond hope that she can be healthy in the next year through the Olympics. It's a shame she has that knee brace still, but if her serve is better and her elbow is healthy? I feel like she could still do serious damage.

I think she could also qualify w/ Serena in doubles (I don't know what her plan was last year, honestly? I guess Serena's quest for 24 was prioritized) IF they are serious and play a lot. US can send 4 women for doubles, and one of them is going to be BMS.
