Venus Williams wins BNP Paribas Showdown for Billie Jean King Cup

This is a rather late posting, but I have had no Internet connection, and I thought better now than not at all: On Monday night in Madison Square Garden, Venus Williams defeated Kim Clijsters 6-4, 3-6, 7-5 to win the second annual Billie Jean King Cup.

In one-set, no-ad scoring, Williams defeated Svetlana Kuznetsova in the semifinal, and Clijsters defeated Ana Ivanovic. Williams was awarded $400,000 for winning the exhibition tournament.

Crossing all time zones, Venus is starting out 2010 in a great fashion! Job well done!

She really is making a statement, isn't she? I'm eager to see what she does next.

It would be nice if she would donate at least part of that easy money to the poor people of Chile!
