Venus seems to be on her way to another claycourt title.

After her confidence-building win at FCC, Venus isn't looking back. She said then: "Let's begin the year from here on". With her performance so far at JSC, she wasn't kidding. She's delivered:

46-62-60 to F. Zuluaga
61-60 to M. Maleeva

Both of these opponents are considered super good claycourt performers, yet the ending sets are all bagels. That's indicative of Venus's capabilty on dirt and dedication to success on the court.

We shall see how she does against Vera Z. next.

Carry on, Vee.

** TP for Topaz or TennisPower **

"Playing aggressive tennis ... that's always the way to go, if you ask me." - Venus Williams, May/2002
"Some shots I will hit hard but not every ball. I'm not just using my power." - Serena Williams, Oct/2002

I doubt it. Those things are nasty and don't fluff. Besides, they use inferior raw materials. I suspect her to dismiss those things pronto.

I think so too!
She's doing great and proving everyone wrong! People who thought Venus was over, and couldn't mean a thing on clay:

Always a telltale quote which shows not to take something seriously... Maleeva a superior claycourter

Vera Z has the tools to beat Venus on red clay... but I don't think she'll win. However, Sveta and her megawatt forehand may just be waiting in the final to prove that Dubai was no fluke.

Hopefully she will win here. She still has alot of work to do and I will celebrate only her SF appearance right now. I will celebrate a title if and when she wins it.
