Thumbs up Venus Wasn't Losing This Year

Praises are definitely warranted for Victory Venus. I had a strong feeling she would walk away w/the throphy. After all, she considers this area her domain. She grew up in the area and she loves it probably better than any other place on earth.

+ Her daddy was in the stands 2. IMO - Venus excels and has more confidence when Pops in on hand.

Kudos to Kim for reaching the final - and especially since she won here last year.

I am happy for her and I have my fingers crossed for the US OPEN. That's the one I really want her to win now even if she will have to crush Lis Sis!

Thumbs up You Gone Venus Girl

For goodness sakes. Venus had 10 - count 'em - double faults. Wow!

Kim say she didn't think Venus made too many UEs.

Venus ends drought with win at Bank of the West

STANFORD, Calif. (AP) -- There's more to Venus Williams than pure power.

With savvy shotmaking -- and, of course, her booming serve -- Williams defeated Belgian Kim Clijsters 6-3, 6-3 Sunday to win the Bank of the West Classic title.

Williams, the top seed, won her fifth title of the year to maintain her No. 2 ranking behind sister Serena Williams, the Wimbledon champion.

Clijsters, the fourth seed and defending champion, will fall from No. 5 in the world to No. 7 with the loss at Taube Family Tennis Center.

Clijsters, with boyfriend and top-ranked men's star Lleyton Hewitt looking on, valiantly tried to keep up with the lanky Williams, who fired off a 112-mph ace to seal the first set.

Williams kept her 19-year-old opponent on the run throughout the 1-hour, 4-minute match with precise shots, compensating for an uncharacteristic 10 double-faults.

She thwarted Clijsters in the opening game of the second set with a perfectly executed tap that just cleared the net.

When Clijsters double-faulted later in the set, she visibly shrugged in frustration. For the next point, Williams blasted her with an unreturnable smash and went up 3-0.

Down 4-0 in the set, Clijsters wouldn't give in. She finally broke Williams, who was serving for the match to narrow it to 5-3.

"It was good to break her in that match," Clijsters said. "She's got so much power. She hardly made any unforced errors, I think."

Williams, closely watched by her father, Richard, and the sellout crowd, came right back to break Clijsters for the victory.

"That's why she was No. 1, when she feels she needs to, she does a little bit extra," said Clijsters, who struggled recently with shoulder and upper arm pain.

Williams beat Lisa Raymond in the semifinals to advance in the $585,000 tournament. Clijsters upset second-seeded Lindsay Davenport, who played in her first tournament in nine months after a knee injury.

Earlier this year, Clijsters beat Williams in the final at Hamburg to even their career series at 1-1. Williams won in the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open last year.

Williams, who made her eighth appearance at Stanford, won the title in 2000 with a victory over two-time champion Davenport.

Clijsters, whose lone title this year came at Hamburg, defeated Davenport in the Bank of the West last year.

Serena Williams, who took the No. 1 rank from her older sister with her victory at Wimbledon, did not play in the Northern California event.
