Venus Rising!

Tennis is the best of games - just watch the unstoppable Venus Williams, seeded down in the twenties (you'd have thought the old cruds at Wimbledon would have learnt by now!) and in another final.

There is nothing beautiful in what she does - pure animal power and instinct, and a love of life.

You can tell she values - what doesn't matter, just the holding on to that value system with such force takes her above the ordinary.

You've never won until the last ball in tennis - and you've never lost either: What better model for life?
