Venus Williams in French Open 2008

Six grand slam titles winner, Venus Williams, could never win French Open title in her career so far. The best French Open performance of once world no. 1 ranked Venus Williams came in 2002, where she lost to younger sister Serena Williams. Now, ahead of French Open 2008 gets underway, this American star must be gunning for her first grand slam title at Roland Garros. French Open 2008 is going to kick off from 25 May 2008. So, there is only couple of days left before the biggest clay court tennis tournament of the world gets underway.

Venus Williams is now world no. 8 in WTA ranking. Last year, Venus Williams won her fourth Wimbledon title, taking her overall grand slam tally to six. The 27 year old star finished the year 8th in WTA ranking. However, she could not show anything special in Australian Open 2008 as she got out of the tournament at the quarter final being defeated by then fourth seed Ana Ivanović 7–6(3), 6–4. In the recently held Italian Open, Venus failed to reach the semi final being lost to Jelena Jankovic 5–7, 6–2, 6–3 in the quarter final.

I have already mentioned that Venus Williams was once world no. 1. So, I do not think she has anything left to prove herself. However, when it comes to achievement and title, she is yet to win her first Australian Open and French Open. The talent she has in her, I think, she could easily end up winning the French Open 2008 title.
