Exclamation Venus Will Play Lisa Raymond In The 3rd Round

Lisa played very well today against Anca Barna, but that's not saying much because anyone would look good against her. I think Venus will get through in straight sets because the only thing Lisa does better than her is play the net.

Actually what does Serena playing Anca have to do with Anca getting a beat down by the " I am no doubles specialist" "I am a singles player" Lisa Raymond?

This person is a fan of one of these current players, if not Martina Hingis.
He or she is not a fan of Venus. He or she is a pariah member.

Sorry Diya, even though Liz may be getting on some folks nerve we will still stick by each other and continue to join forces and rip your ass to shreds!

I know you would like it if williams fans argued between each other your kind always does.

No be gone u tool and go get the crinks out of jen's vertebra. I know a good move that my neighbor MR BENTLY taught me that may help.

Just stating that not everyone is "looking good" when playing against Barna, as lizcrap ridiculously claimed. Ask the 30+ players she has beaten last year.
Anca is no top-player, but she's not a joke either, in contrast to lizcrap.

That's a good description of Diya or Deah_20 or as I like to call it Duh_0.

here is their head to heads, seems venus hasn't had to much of a problem with Lisa. Venus also served at around 60% in both sets today. Her serve picked up EXTREMELY compared to her first round match, and she still won some what easily. Lisa is gonna look to "chip and charge" and come in a lot of times. But venus expects this from her, and im sure will be ready to take her down in straight sets. Good luck venus in the next round!

Normally when Lisa plays Venus, she abandons her chip and charge game and tries to pound it from the back of the court. Is she wants to win she better bring a different strategy. She should play her game, which is to chip and charge.

I know that is easier said than done.

As much as I like Lisa and her fabulous game, I don't see her putting up a close fight against Venus. If Lisa is to make Venus run for her money, Lisa has to come out on top of Venus playing as agressively as she can which is of course to charge the net on every opportunity. Lisa is at her best at the net and I don't think Venus will be comfortable with Lisa up there. Venus has great passing shots but when Lisa is on, she's great at the net. That said, I don't think Lisa will bring out the best in her. She's way too inconsistent.
