Feel so sad about Venus
« on: June 25, 2012, 08:10:03 PM »
sorry guys, opening a new thread ... but I just watched her press conference. what a lovely woman. so humble, so modest, still positive ... we can learn so much from her.

It was so painful to watch the match. Venus, a living legend, being a shadow of her old self. she tried so hard to get back after she was diagnosed with that horrible desease .... but I was devastated that a great girl who won Wimbledon 5 times was out in R1. I'm wondering if this is her last W.

I saw that too.  She said she was "tough" but I did feel sad for her.  She would be a great "addition" to the tennis broadcast crew when she retires.  Or ...maybe she could be the head of the WTA!  Everything is possible with Venus!!!!

Venus is so classy unlike these screaming blonds from Eastern Europe (sorry Masha, still love you  :)).

You can ignore reality, but you can't ignore the consequences of ignoring reality.

She's a peach for sure.
Tennis is not here entire life, so I doubt she is 'crushed' by the loss.
CONK da ball!!!

She has been awesome all her life. It was really touching press conference.

I think Venus is a player finally on the way out.
 
She has been a true legend.
"Sometimes it feels like you're not on a tennis court, the amount of noise you guys produce and for us it's a great feeling. It's a pleasure playing in front of you. It's my great privilege to be standing here in front of one of the greatest players ever, Rod Laver. "
