Fabiola is a great player, especially on clay! So this win is very strong for Venus. I am actually really glad that she had a challenge in this 2nd round. In fact, I think that Venus thrives off of challenges. If she had gone through lower-ranked and less-skilled opponents quickly, I don't think it would really give her the match practice that she needs. I hope to see a great Patty-Venus match (fingers crossed).
