Venus Williams def. Vera Zvonareva 6-3 6-2

It was a nice match.
Venus was somewhat tested because she had to play long rallies.
If she plays like this against Kuznetsova she'll probably win the title!

She's really cut down on her unforced errors too!

Yea I watched it.
Venus played really well! She hardly made any unforced errors, and her backhand was great.
Her serve could be better, maybe more first serves and more aces?
But if she keeps this up she's one of the top contenders for Roland Garros!

If the surface is slow enough, the rallies continue until someone misses. The question isn't the number of UEs, in a case like that, but the length of the points.

This one seemed the longest, so I responded here and am ignoring the others.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

It's not really how many "aces" you come up with ...but when you use
them. I've seen matches were only 2 "aces" were used, and they
were on very, very crucial moments.

In the beginning she played amazingly well.
But then she made lots of double faults and started crying a bit, I think she lost focus.
At the end she was making too many errors.
