Oh Venus! Sigh...

Puts herself in winning positions and just can never mentally close it out.
Sometimes I wish it was all downhill. It's painful to get your hopes up
only to be dashed time and time again.

She served for that 1st set at 5-4 with two set points.
Got broken, had three bp's for 6-5, couldn't convert
and broken at love for 5-7.

Then, down 0-5 in the 2nd only to get it to a tb!
Great fight, but dare I hope........

She went late to China. I sent her a subliminal message, telling her to get off her a...s and go to China play with the big girls.
So she entered both Wuhan and Beijing Qualifiers. But in Wuhan, she was an alternate; had to wait for about 6 people to drop out to have a chance to get in the Qualies draw. She got impatient and dropped out. Didn't want to wait. I guess she is a Chicago diva too. :) :)

I don't know if she came back home or if she took off for Beijing where she is still in the entry list. She is in the Qualifiers draw there.
You think she is afraid of flying????.... this girl loves to stick around local ITF to play in the middle or corn and peanut farms... :)
Someone has to tell her she can't get better playing fellow scrubs at local ITF all year long.

No she is not. Someone asked her about her lack of play outside the USA and she said financially it was not possible for her to fly all over the world to play qualies. She did mention something like if u lose in qualies in some of these events you get about $900, not enough to cover your ticket.

Yes I saw that video... but I thought she could be hiding her fear of flying too.
Taking at face value what she said in that video, I thought she no longer had an excuse not to go play abroad because she got a pretty big paycheck at the USO.

I think she should have skipped Asia and gone to Europe. Don't they have a few events there after Asia? And that "big" check remember has to be shared and then spread over 12 months. Who knows when her next big one will be. :)
