Fans Boo Venus Williams As She Withdraws From The Australian Open + Antoine Dodson Lands His Own Reality Show!

 

Venus Williams was greeted with a round of boos, from the audience, as she withdrew from the Australian Open due to injury.  Get the deets inside.  Plus, run tell DIS....Antoine Dodson is coming to reality tv.   Deets inside....

 

Venus Williams was forced to withdraw from the Australian Open yesterday after injuring a hip flexor muscle in the previous round. 

“I mean, it’s super disappointing because this is just not how I envisioned my Australian Open being. I’ve never had to retire from a Grand Slam, especially after working so hard to pull out the match the other day. Just hoping for some magic that I could recover. But I have peace of mind that I really gave more than my best out there.”

Just for her own self-presevation, it was great that Venus left the match.  But the crowd didn't feel that way.  As she walked through the tunnel back to the locker room, she was met with a smattering of boos and whistles.  Folks were upset that they had paid top dollar for tickets to the two night-session singles matches and seen only three sets.  

The tournament director, Craig Tiley, had scheduled Venus Williams and Andrea Petkovic last, hoping to give Venus a chance to recover, but her mother and coach, Oracene Price, said she did not think Williams should have competed at all.  

Venus has been dealing with a lot of injuries including tendinitis in both knees in recent years and a sprained left kneecap last year.

Venus may be out the tournament, but she made it clear that she had no intention of retirement in general.

“Well, I’m still pretty good, even when I’m injured.  I mean, at the Open, I came pretty close to winning that tournament just on a hope and a prayer and little to no preparation. Here, you know, I was grinding. So I’m just going to focus obviously on getting healthy and coming back. Because I love tennis, and I’ve got a lot of great tennis in me. I love my job, so no end in sight.”

 

Get better soon Venus.

And in television news...

Antoine Dodson continues down the road to worldwide domination.  He started out as a young man in the projects, then became an internet sensation. What's the next stop?  TV superstar of course.  TMZ reports that Antoine is shooting a pilot for a reality show produced by Entertainment One with actress Kali Hawk (remember their milkshake run?) as executive producer.

The unnamed show will focus on Antoine moving out of Alabama and over to West Hollywood. No network has signed onto the project yet, but with Antoine's lucky streak, it could land on one of the big four networks.

I like Venus and am sad

I like Venus and am sad about her retirement. But constantly the Williams family shows their low grade origin by picking on Clijsters this time. Shockingly Oracene, the mother with a lot of class said nasty stuff about Clijsters on Twitter. Whats bothering Oracene is that Clijsters is constantly beating Venus Williams in all grand slams they play and also beat Serena . In fact Clijsters fag end of her career has become more glorious than her first half was. Although she was a good player then her confidence levels were terrible. Today she dominates most ralllies with Venus Williams and Serena Williams minus when their booming serves are on. Oracene, what you did has made me lose respect for you. You have now aligned your self with the lines of your classless ex husband Richard Williams and the slag , worthless Ashok Leyland truck looking daughter of yours Serena. Hope venus does not follow suit. You called Clijsters names this time, dont be surprised if people say nasties to you and your unattractive daughter serena and then you will cry racism . You deserve it after what you did!

You mean, 3 games right? If

You mean, 3 games right? If they saw 3 sets then they would have gotten way past their money's worth. It must have been 3 games. She and Serena have played through numerous injuries through out their careers, so this must have been bad for her. I remember the abdominal strain she had in 2001 or so. That was bad. The fans of Australia better calm down before they get boycotted by them like Indian Wells. I'm sure they were upset but I saw her scream in pain in her previous match so this has to be tough for her to.

Not everyone goes to school

Not everyone goes to school and has a Ph.D. Antoine is using waht talents he is for a come up. Nothing wrong with that. Hell, look at the Kardashians? What exactly is their talent? I am not knocking Antoine. Hopefully, he uses the money wisely, going to school, investing well. As to Venus, if she is injured, she is injured. The fans have to understand that. Anyways, Australia is one of the most racist places in the world, so I am not surprised they booed her. Just keep it moving Venus. These sisters are strong enough, they know the deal by now.

Good for Venus, and forget

Good for Venus, and forget those fans. She should not be risking her health -- and future in the sport -- to suit their desires. Sorry, Natasha, but there is NO WAY this is going to end up on one of the big four networks; more likely MTV or VH1 if anywhere.

I love a good come up story.

I love a good come up story. And, the situation that brought him and his family up has protected his sister and shed light on crimes against women. But, Antoine is far from being a superstar and I doubt the major networks would give this show a snowballs chance in hell. Lets be real. Only a few black blogs are left talking about him while most of the world have long moved on to several thousand next big thing stories. Most of the reality shows are on cable networks and everybody and their brother are filing footage in hopes of landing a reality show deal. So whether this will see the light of day or not remains to be seen. But, I wish Antoine and his family will take the time to build skills that will pay the rent beyond his 15 minutes of fame. Yep, its time everybody get into to school and learn a trade, skill or earn a degree. Sitting around for a longshot get rich quick scheme like a reality show will only delay the ride back to the projects by a few weeks unless plans B, C and D are already in motion.

I can respect your opinion.

I can respect your opinion. However, Antoine show will be successful. Even though he should have thought of reality T.V. last year, people will watch. His Youtube videos have received millions of views. A while back, Antoine stated that he was in school. I think he’s going to college for business or he’s going to a cosmetology/beauty school.

Who do you think made this way of living in America? Who wrote the history books we read in school? This country was founded on stolen land and mass murder. Let's be real.
