USO QF: (4) Williams/Williams def (11) Yan/Zheng 7-5 6-4

Decent match overall. Very patchy at times but did what they had to do. Up 5-2 in the first set had trouble missing some simple returns. Venus wasn't as sharp today but came big deep in the first. Serena was the better player today and motivated Venus to start playing better. Did anyone watch on USO Live? That commentator Doug whatever just made me wanna

good job girls but I can't like the fact that they did 33UEs and 6DFs I hope Serena didn't play bad

Good job

Thankfully Team Williams can't hear the trash that commentates their matches.

Congratulations Venus and Serena.

Could not believe how harsh that guy Doug Adler was on Venus. He was really hard to listen to.

What didn't he say? He first went on a rant about how it bothers him when people mention her and Serena in the same sentence bcause Serena is the far better player. Then he tried to say she's underachieved and her 5 Wimbledon's aren't impressive if you look at her career as a whole. Then he said Serena was carrying Venus the entire match, and every winner they hit, even if Venus hit it, was due to Serena setting her up. Thank god for Gail who called him out saying he was harsh. Then when Gail tried to say her play had to do with the knee he went on a rant about how if you aren't 100% you shouldnt take the court. It's a grand slam, obviously you're gonna play through injury if it isnt career threatening. But the cherry on the sundae was when Yan/Zheng used the eye formation and some different tactics when serving to Venus and he said "I don't know why they are using these special tactics against Venus, she's not playing well so they don't need to do anything special to beat her". I mean I just didn't even know how to react, very bizarre commentator that man.

I don't post often enough, but I have to agree that this commentator, Doug (Addler?, or whoever he is) is indeed bizarre and needs to get out of the booth with such a stinkin attitude and such hateful speech.

Words like... bully...brutes...eight-armed octupus...Serena, all over the net like a bad smell, and then just berating Venus at every opportunity. WTF?

It was really hard to listen to such shameful commentary.

He also advised Yan/Zheng to hit every single ball to Venus no matter where Venus was, just to see what she could come up with. When Venus hit a really nice swinging volley and Elise Burgin said that Venus had the best swinging volley in the game and was really one of the pioneers of that shot, all Doug had to say was "there's not a lot of finesse there" and following the awkward pause Elise said "...so that's your analysis?". He said Venus would have loved the opportunity to serve out matches years ago, but now she would basically choke. It was really bizarre to hear him constantly berate her for seemingly no reason.
