I won't use 'Venus Rising' for the headline—I just won't do it!

"Venus Rising" or "Venus Rose" or "Venus Isn't Rising" are usually my fallback headlines whenever I'm writing a Venus Williams-related post, but I vow to stay away from those from now on! : )

Anyway, in Dubai, the third seed is slated to take on Victoria Azarenka in the finals after they beat Shahar Peer (kudos to her for her history-making tournament) and Agnieszka Radwanska, respectively. But really, you could say it's all about Venus as she's been clocking opponents left and right throughout this tournament.

There was a story making the tennis headlines earlier in the week with Williams saying she wanted to win more titles in 2010. I really hope that's the case, at least to set my mind right because I can never figure out why she doesn't win four to seven events a year anymore. She should be more entrenched on the Slam contender circuit besides when it's time to hit the Wimbledon grass.

I wouldn't mind seeing her get it done here and hopefully using this as a springboard for the rest of the season.

great match. terrific win for Venus. Azarenka still hasn't learned how to pace herself.

Hey tennischick, how are you? Yeah, it was a great win for Venus. I can't believe she's playing in Acapulco this week! It'd be nice I guess to see her keep it going.
