Arrow (4) Venus Williams vs. Mary Pierce

The third round match that everybody has been looking forward to ever since the draw came out. Venus is favored to win but if Mary is on or if Vee's injury flares up then Mary definitely has a chance.

Mary will Give Venus the Pace and Match Rhythm she likes. From the ground they will be match, Venus has the edge with Foot Speed. I am seeing Vee in 2 CLOSE sets.

I don't think Venus can afford to play poorly against Maam. Maam has a great serve and ground strokes but Venus is far superior over the ground. Venus has struggled a little in her opening round and today whereas Maam hasn't put a foot wrong. Can't wait for this match!

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

Vee, Mary's game is tight, but I don't see Vee playing like she has in the first two rounds.

Venus will pick it up as she continually and consistently
has when she needed to amidst her clay court season!

iT'S ALL about match-ups...You don't play the same against every player. The better server will probably pull this one out.

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Great to hear that Mary was in the stands of Chartier during Venus' match ... Not like she is unfamiliar with Vee's game but always good to scout out the next opponent.
