VENUS vs Barty

I'm going with Vee, and if she wins, she is well poised to win her first title in eons.

Vee knows how to play Barty's game, but she has to bring her power tennis and court awareness!!

Go Vee!!

Whoever wins this match, wins the title. This is the title match. Both must be super motivated with more on the line for Barty, as she's gunning for No. 1 with a title win.

Yikes, Vee let that 1st set slip from her despite having a 4-1 lead.

How I wish Venus had that killer instinct and focus. Too often when she is in
a winning/dominating position she tends to become just a bit too nonchalant
and things tend to get away from her quickly. All in all she played some good
tennis this week and actually appeared healthy. Hope she continues this upward momentum.

Onward to Wimbledon!

Love Match Ends! Venus Williams And Boytoy Beau Nicky Hammond Have Split
Tennis star, 39, and millionaire, 27, allegedly can't agree on marriage and kids.


Venus Williams and her boyfriend, Nicky Hammond, have broken up, Page Six has exclusively learned.

It’s unclear how long the under-the-radar couple were dating, but Hammond was reportedly Venus’ date to her sister Serena Williams’ New Orleans wedding to tech mogul Alexis Ohanian in November 2017.

Hammond — a scion of the Annenberg family fortune, which once included magazines such as TV Guide and Seventeen — is reportedly 12 years younger than Venus, who turned 39 on June 17. His mother is Annenberg heir Dana Hammond.

A source told us of the pair, “They dated for two years and have broken up. It’s not because they don’t love each other, they do. They are still friends.”

The source added that Venus is looking for marriage and a family and that the younger Hammond wasn’t in the same stage.

But another source said that it had nothing to do with Venus wanting more — and that the relationship just “ran its course.”

Last summer, The Post reported the pair were getting serious and that Hammond had presented Venus with a ring — although not of the engagement variety, just a “friendship ring.” The strapping, 6-foot-4 Hammond said at the time of the relationship: “We have a firm commitment to one another to keep our relationship private.”

Hammond was also seen cheering Venus on at tournaments, including the Australian Open, in the past.

Venus previously dated pro golfer Hank Kuehne as well as model Elio Pis. Since sister and fellow tennis great Serena tied the knot and gave birth to a daughter, there was increased speculation on whether Venus would also settle down with Hammond.

Meanwhile on the court, Venus lost in straight sets to French Open champ Ashleigh Barty Friday at the Birmingham Classic, a grass court tournament lead-up to Wimbledon.
