Kudos to Venus for Playing in Asia

I was unable to watch Venus play and win in Korea, but I did find her final match on the Tennis Channel during the wee hours of the morning a few days ago. She all but had the title on her racket with three championship points in the second set tie break, but was unable to convert during her error prone match.

The Williams Sisters rarely get love from the American media, and especially a writer from Sports Illustrated who recently complained about Venus playing in Asia for money (don't think so), and after always griping that the sisters aren't dedicated enough to the game because of outside interests (they have a life away from the tennis court, a crime among the tennis elite).

Here's the link where one reader took him to task: Bitter Pill.
