Pennetta says " Venus Williams happened to me "

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/tennis/7917309.stm



Flavia will get a talking to by someone.

Its not the first time some of the players

tell the truth.

I remember when Vee And Ree were meeting

in all the finals and Momo said how everyone

else was basically playing for # 3. Bartoli saying

that when Venus plays like this its impossible

to beat her. And how much her wrists were hurting

trying to return Vee power. Dinara saying she was just

a ball boy out there. Pova saying she hopes she can

maybe win a few games next time she plays Serena.



I can understand why some don't want to increase

the Williams confidence by admitting the truth. but

the truth will set you free. I applaud the players who

tell it like it is. I can only imagine how players feel

when they look at the draw and see their names next to

a Williams Sister . All of their years of training, developing

gameplans and strategies thrown out the window.

Reduced to two options 1. Try and get every ball back

and hope the Sister has a bad day and makes errors

or 2. Go for broke on every shot and hope that you play

best match of your life. And when the Sisters are playing well

everything they do is all for naught.

When they are walking thru the doors of the locker room

to the court I wonder if any of them sub-conciously think

they see the sign over the door from the gates of hell

" Abandon All Hope Ye Who Enter Here "



The way the Sisters are playing right now .....

It has to be scary.

I don't think Pennetta will get a talking to for saying that.

Momo got a talking to when she said what she said.

I think Linds was one of them, But she changed her tune

a couple of weeks later and backfished on that staement.

"All of their years of training, developing

Momo got talked to because she dissed the Williams sisters...
she just said that All-Williams Final is not good
and boring and people would want to see other players in the final...

While lady LaPenne was giving Venus a compliment

The Williams sisters are definitely in their primes right now. Many of their tournaments will be theirs to lose I think.

there might be some exageration here, but there also it truth to what the thread starter said. They are both very confident atm so you kinda have to hope they are off their games and you play "the best match of your life". The thing is, they can easily come off their games (venus more often) so its not like their opposition doesnt stand a chance. I hope sharapova comes back strong and at least challenges them. We need more classic matches!

Thus is even more incredible at this stage of their career.

They are both 27 and 28 years old respectively.
How many WTA players can that at Venus and Serena ages.

I said when the Sisters play well. The options

I cited does work sometimes. ( not lately )

But when the Girls play well it doesn't.

Name the player in the WTA who jumps for joy

When they see Williams next to their name

on a drawsheet.. Especially since Wimby.

From another poster
Yes the Sisters lose matches...But chances are they only lose to each other...Whenever they play they are favored to win by intelligent folks......No we don't think our Ladies are unbeatable...But we dang well know they are better than every other WTA player......
