Venus is an incredible and gifted athelete. But her screaming with each groundstroke is getting too much like gamesmanship. She should be above that.

You can't tell me Bartoli deserves to get the same amount of money as Nadal or Federer - whoever loses.

Credit her for getting this far, but come on, thats simply not on.

What is the problem with Venus shouting when she plays such great tennis? Britain had a female player as good as Venus, no-one would be complaining about a little noise. Bartoli was great today. If venus hadn't been so good there would have been an upset today.

You'd think these people would stop with the bile for one moment to give Venus the credit she deserves. The bitterness here is simply ridiculous...

The William sisters have proven that they are the best in women tennis. With their lack of commitment to the tour lately and their high rankings, they are able to win slams. If they get committed again they will reign for a long time and bring excitement to the sport again. CONGRATULATION, Venus. You are the best.
