no I think Myskina was the first. Good Second Set. 42 Errors is not going to win u the match, I felt it was a bad day when I saw Venus getting emotional on court.

GOod Win for Myskina though!

It doesn't matter, she just made 43 UFE's should could make those against anyone. I doubt she was worried about Myskina.

i am glad nastya exposed venus's much vaunted backhand and her so-called 'great run on clay' she never faced any top ten players so there were several asterisks on that winning streak!

She still won two titles which is more than the three semifinalists can say.

And two, possibly all threre, will walk home empty.

the point is she was not really challenged during her winning streak.. and she's not had a win against a top tenner for probably at least a year.

yeah but when she got tested, what happened? I m a fan of Venus but dont dillusion yourself, she was not challenged. Meanwhile Jen has beaten Bovina, Serena 2 times, Myskina. Cmon now. AND had a MP on Momo the favorite coming into RG.

She'll get her chance at Wimbledon and the summer hardcourts, where she has an excellent record.

No offense, but Myskina was no test. She just played bad like she did last year. I bet if she plays Myskina at Wimbledon like she did Vera last year, she'ss win.

I've Been sayin this Forever..she's gotta get a NEW Coach to like instruct her how to hit a forehand correctly and also to Improve that sucky pathetic 2nd SERVe..GET IT TOGETHER VENUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
