Venus should simply withdraw and come home.

Coco is getting on my last nerve!!

Why was she there with the top tier during the Rally4Relief?? Helping yes, but I feel like they're pushing her on us, and Serena is her biggest cheerleader which says to me so what if it hurts Vee!! Just saying!!

Dj, my suggestion for you is not to be irritated with the attention Cori is getting. It's not her fault. Does she belong with the tennis greats for the charitable relief effort? Of course not. She didn't place herself with the tennis greats for the relief event and she certainly didn't create the lst rounder with Venus either. The TD did, as a continuation of the response to the positive, excessive fan support and media attention she got after her Wimby run. She drew huge crowds for the DC event. Her exho with Ashleigh Barty at a men's event in Winston-Salem ere the USO was a sell-out. She filled Ashe with Naomi for their match, her doubles' matches at the USO outdrew men's singles matches. She filled 14k seating Armstrong in her double's match with McNally (unheard of for doubles), and drew well for her singles matches at Linz (winning the title) and Luxembourg in Europe at season's end, then filled the house at the Auckland this year. Once the TDs and the corporatists see a cash cow, they are going to promote and milk it for what it's worth. I'm sure Cori and her parents were surprised at the invite for the relief effort and likely made her head spin, as well (what am I doing here with these greats?). Yet, thus far, she's handling the attention just fine, tho' I don't like it myself, for this excessive attention could potentially damage her mentally and emotionally with expectations due to such. Likely, there will be a fall at some point for this promising, Venus-like talented teenager, but her disposition at the moment is one of evenness and humility with good parenting to boot.

Cappy, Safina, Genie … I hope her parents continue to contain it because fame does terrible things to youngsters, but her dad is her coach so he's in it too!!

Not sorry that it & she irks me ~ They are intentionally pushing Venus out!!

Venus was asked about playing Coco again on Instagram. She's pumped, she says.
