If Pin had just a bit better serve...

I don't know, but her game is certainly much better than where she is ranked right now...

I think her nerve/mental side needs more work - she can change that. Its hard to get more power

Venus played her in Bangkok last year and beat her 61 61.

Re: If Pin had just a bit better serve...

its not her serve, its her head. she could be up a set and 5-0 and find a way to blow it.

if she won half the matches she chokes away regularly she'd be in the top50 easy.

Re: If Pin had just a bit better serve...

Venus should be dismantling Pin. I know Pin's a tricky player, but I expected Venus to romp this match. She won't win the title playing like this!

Correct. I've lost count of how many opportunities she's had to beat top 20 players. Coincidentally, she's still winless against them.

Sharapova / Bartoli / Azarenka / Rezaď
Cornet / Karatantcheva / Kirilenko
Safina / Dulko / Görges / Shvedova
Fedak / Czink / Harkleroad / Gallovits
Kleybanova / A.Bondarenko / Watson

Venus needs to get her shit together. I have 7000 vbucks on her
