I hope Venus can do it! I want her and Justine to play, hopefully Venus is feeling better. It'll be the first meeting after awhile, and Venus has always had the edge!

luckily this is on hardcourts not carpets, so who knows, it should be a good match because its not like maggie slaughtered Venus in their last meeting i think it was a thrid set tiebreaker

I hope Venus can too!!!

If her shots are on, she should beat Maggie in straight sets(see AO '02). But Maggie plays consistently and aggressive against Venus, something that bothers her. But I hope it's a good match.

Is this surface indoor Hardcourt, or Carpet?

Looking at their record, Venus would have a big edge on Indoor Hard and Maggie on Indoor Carpet.


Venus Williams (USA) vs. Magdalena Maleeva (BUL)

1995-10-30 Oakland Indoor Carpet QF Magdalena Maleeva (BUL) 6-2 6-3
1998-01-12 Sydney Hardcourt QF Venus Williams (USA) 6-2 6-2
2001-02-12 Nice Indoor Carpet SF Magdalena Maleeva (BUL) 7-6(8) 6-4
2002-01-14 Australian Open Hardcourt R16 Venus Williams (USA) 6-0 6-3
2002-09-30 Moscow Indoor Carpet R16 Magdalena Maleeva (BUL) 2-6 6-1 7-6(3)

The speed of the surface changes as well, like green and red clay, with green being a little faster

Go back and check the record than you'll know. If you STILL don't know, than I can't help you.

It is still indoors, though.

A lot of court speed has to do with the fact that it's indoors period.
