Utterly spent Venus vanquished
KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. -- For years, folks have been imploring Venus Williams to come to net more often. Her long limbs make her a natural there. If there is a blessing in the guise of her Sjogren's syndrome -- the chronic condition that leaves her easily fatigued -- it is that she needs to finish points quickly.
The best way to do that is to move forward. Going forward, for however long she wants to continue playing, we now know this represents Venus' best chance to win.
