Venus CRUSHES Maleeva 6-1 6-0

Maleeva held her opening service game.

The key games in the match were the third and fourth game of the second set. Venus serving at 6-1 2-0, Maleeva had love-40 and didn't break. Maleeva serving at 1-6 0-3, she had about 4-5 game points to hold and didn't.

GO Venus! (since her slow start in the opening round, she's lost 3 games in four sets )

the bad stat: 1 of 2 at the net. Only TWO times at the net? Oh well, a win is a win!

Maggie just gave up in the end. I thought that Venus would win but it wasmore like a 6-3, 6-2..... Venus was just too good I think

1/2 at the net.

You know, I adore Venus, but everytime she talks about coming into net more, I just call it bull****. Everytime she plays FedCup BJK has encouraged her tirelessly, I'm sure, to come to net more and from what I've seen she only does it round FedCup time then she's back to her professed baseline game.

She did it in Charleston (I saw the ZV match) but give her a few days and she's back to her old ways. Venus would be devastating if she s&V more! The girl's just set in her ways.

But I am proud of her. She did a damn good job against Maggie. It's a startling score, IMO, expecially on clay where I thought Maleeva would be able to make it competitive, but damn! Venus was on a mission!

I hope she can take this title too and then head for Berlin, if she's still planning to play.

Wow! I rushed home to follow the match at the scheduled time (10am my time) and VZ and ASP were still in the first set, so I leave and come back, hoping ASP had taken the match to three sets so I could catch it at lunch. WHen I get here Pistolesi had crashed and burned and it was 3-0 in Vee's match, or so I thought. When that bewitched scoreboard had loaded properly Vee was up 6-1 and closing in fast on 4-0. Damn! I was thrilled!

That girl makes me feel so good. I love it! I love it when she's dominating like this; it helps her. Like Pam says maybe the intimidation factor is good for 2 or 3 games in a set. Well whatever it's good for you've absolutely got to have it to get those games and I'm hoping that Vee can continue like this cuz I know it'll help her out there.
