Why do bad things happen to good people, if you get my drift.
At least her sister dressed appropriately this time and no ugly faces made or screaming. True she is on probation and her first match was against someone who didn't seem up to the quality for an Open invitation. She seems to get nasty when the competition is tougher.
But this is about Venus and may she get things under control, be well and do well in her next choices.
