Venus holds the Billie Jean King Cup whilst standing next to Billie Jean King after her three set victory against Vera Zvonareva of Russia in the final during the Sony Ericsson Championships at the Khalifa Tennis Complex. Venus defeated Vera 6-7, 6-0, 6-2.
All I can say is WOW!! This is Vee's FIRST season-ending Sony Ericsson Championship title. I do not know what Venus had this week (to play the way she did) but I'll take two please. Venus EARNED and DESERVED this title. If Venus carries this form over into the new year, to everyone on the WTA Tour, be afraid.....BE VERY AFRAID!
Noteworthy: Venus did not lose a match during the Championships and took out the year's best players. She defeated (Olympic Gold Medalist) Elena Dementieva, (Olympic Silver Medalist) Dinara Safina, (U.S. Open Champion and Olympic Gold Medalist doubles partner and Wimbledon Champion doubles partner) Serena Williams, (World #1) Jelena Jankovic, and (Olympic Bronze Medalist) Vera Zvonareva.
