Venus and her single-handed backhand

I know it's late but I noticed her match against Jelena Kostanic during one of her match points, she hits a single-handed backhand twice! It was pretty good, don't you think?

I remember one great slice one-handed backhand she hit against Zvonareva. That thing was beautiful.

Most players can hit that one handed backhanded but they don't they would rather go for the sure shot. I used to think that women hit double handed coz they weren't strong but if Justine can do it, so can most girls.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

SF matches? Err, don't think so. Maybe you can check tennis schedule at http://www.foxsports.com.au/ and click Tennis on menu-drops at left.
