5-25-04 A few observations...
I thought Serena looked great today. SHe was very focused and held her serve pretty well. The outfit was cute, but I could do with put the flower.
Venus was very rusty. Especially in the focus department. SHe needs work on her serve. I am worried about the ankle though. In her interview she said she is trying to keep matches short, to try not to further complicate things. I knew 2 weeks wasn't enough time to fully heal. I just hope she doesn't do further damage.
Capriati gave us another match to remember. I have one problem with her game though. She is too defensive minded. When she won in 2001 she was 60% offense 40% defense. She needs to be more agressive and dictate play more. This type of playing style will get her hammered by a determined Serena or Venus. No one's defense can withstand the Williams's sisters offensive barrage.
All in all a good day for fun matches to watch.
