'I'll keep coming back until I have that racket'
Venus Williams was a bit down as she knew she was very close at taking the racket home. 'I'll be coming back until I have that racket."
"The Diamond Games are a great tournament. I have met a couple of nice people here and I like to come back to Antwerpen. I'll be coming back until I have that racket. I don't value material things that much," she said smiling. Yet, I was so close. Above all, I'm very happy with the level of tennis I was playing this week.
Williams could see two reasons for losing against Mauresmo. She had had two matches late in the evening (against Clijsters on Friday and against Myskina on Saturday), and she didn't fel fully recovered and rested. The American also had some difficulty with her belly, which is why her service was much less powerful. '"Yes, my belly was hindering me, just like 2 years ago (when she was out for 6 months, ed), but it feels different now. I hope a couple of days of rest will do."
I really hope that she isn't injuried-- shes just starting to play well since her last injury where she was out 6 months
