Venus Schools The Unenlightened

Tuesday, July 1, 2008

Black Tennis Pro's Wimbledon 2008For all of you unenlightened cats and kittens who don't know what's real, American Venus Williams was sure to clue some of you in yesterday after her 6-3, 6-4 victory over Russian Alisa Kleybanova.

Post match a reporter asked Venus how she felt about being placed on the well known "graveyard of champions" court again. Venus said,"...let's keep it on the real, real. I'm here for the tennis, on all courts." Now take that to the bank and cash it! The truth is the truth, and that's what's real.

On the same subject, Serena stated, “At the end of the day I’m going to focus on my match. I don’t want to go out there and lose because I’m angry at being on Court Two.”

"It wasn't what I would have liked to see, initially I thought, 'OK, is this the right schedule?' I thought maybe there was a mistake.

"Granted, I do think it's weird, especially having a female champ who has won this tournament four times. I've only won twice, but hey, that's not so bad."

Following the victory of big sis, Serena came right behind her and revealed more truth with a 6-3, 6-3 victory over fellow American Bethanie Mattek, who put on a fabulous display of tennis. Hopefully we'll get to see a bit more of her this year.

Shortly thereafter, both of the sisters returned to the dreaded court once more to play doubles against Spaniards Anabel Medina Garriques and Virginia Ruano Pascual. The sisters defeated them 6-1, 6-4.

Both sisters will be on show courts today for the quarterfinal round.
