Still early rounds, but Nadia & Maria are overdue for a huge major. This team should win majors over the next few years

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Both couldn't do anything for shit. But a tight moment, leave it to Venus to suck and blow it for them.

Re: USO R3: (4) Kirilenko/Petrova def. Williams/Williams 6-1 6-4

props to the russians for maintaining a single break of serve for the entire second set

williams sisters really didnt have a chance to break until the last game and the russians won 4 points in a row from 15-40 down

both williams sisters were awful. serena improved in the second set and she is why it was close but venus was just so bad

Kiri & Naughtya were playing fantastic!! Well deserved win & hope they win the title.

Serena started out just as bad as Venus but she got better as the match progressed except for her ROS which was a bit on and off. Venus just absolutely stunk to shit. You'd think bombing out in R2, she would have tons of free time to get in shape for doubles.

And here you are, a black unicorn.

Venus was a walking target here 90% of the balls were targeted on here, Serena just didn't play well enough to cover Venus. Venus needs to know how to play percentage tennis.

Re: USO R3: (4) Kirilenko/Petrova def. Williams/Williams 6-1 6-4

Actually the WS could do nothing in this match. Kirilenko/Petrova made next to no errors and served flawlessly. As I've said before, Venus and Serena are NOT good doubles players, they win by virtue of intimidation, weak competition, teamwork, and their serves. Other aspects of their doubles play are horrible. They could NEVER win Slams with numerous partners like Hingis could. I'm glad a team was finally able to stand up to them and not choke/wilt in their presence.

Respectable loss to a very good doubles team. The WS just didn't have it tonight and oh well. For whatever reason I'm not bummed by this loss the way I would've been had it been Wimbledon. And I want Serena completely focused on singles here.

Really disappointed with Serena on the second break point in the last game, didn't cross at all, didn't even try.

As much as Venus fucking blows it a lot, most of the win is on her racquet. Serena leaves Venus to fend the baseline by herself because she doesn't know how to poach at net to save her life. Venus at least bails Serena out on the baseline a lot.

Whatever, at least Serenus were able to win Wimbledon and the Gold rather convincingly considering they hadn't played in 2 years together. Nads/Maria can have their QF, we'll take our 5th Wimbledon and 3rd Olympic Gold

I really like Hingis but God her tards make me rethink it everytime they try to throw shade. Just give it up that your girl has been eclipsed in singles AND doubles by both the WS. I don't know why people take such offense that their faves don't compare to Serena/Venus. Nobody in the modern era does.
