i don't know if she played so well that she is back. this gurl may have played a great match. but i take to note that the old venus of 2000 and 2001 would have taken her out 6-3 6-2. i think her fighting spirit was back. but they say the level of play from Ana was amazing. but again i dunno how venus played. so i think these "tough" ones are starting to push venus to get back in her top form, and keep her top form there. that is why i don't think sharapova is gonna trouble her. she cruzed in her first match, and had a young one come out and give her all she could handle. the "will" in her came out, and she has to be feeling good.

Once upon a time I thought the same, but this year I have learnt to chersh every win by Venus, nothing comes easy to her anymore.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Some may scoff because Ivanovic is
a qualifier but, this girl is the real deal!!!

The commentators said this was a great match for
Venus because she was forced to raise her level
and what a match it really was!

Damn, I wish I had this match on tape!!!


Venus saved so many set points
and never lost heart and fought!

Venus Williams is no where near being back. The Venus of the first 4 or 5 games is the old Venus Williams. Ana played a great match I dont want to take anything away from her. But
Venus made to many UFE at the wrong times and should have walked off the court 2 and 2. It was nice to see Venus putting up a fight and proving that she wants to be out on the tennis court.

But in terms of being back to her best still a way to go.

But keep playing matches Venus and it will start to come back

I agree.

AShe's no where near the form we all know
she can be but, we did see glimpses!

I'm so happy because neither girl lost that fight,
Venus had to really play and was pushed and dug deep
as they said and really found something there.

I agree, if she can just keep going like this
when she isn't totally on her game, she will be getting there.

Stay healthy and well Venus!

Venus beat a hot player who wants to prove something in a thrilling fashion. This is a great start to venus getting back to her old level. I still have to see how this Ana girls plays on a regular basis. Anyone with a rank can play a great match on any given day, but it is too soon to say imho if she is going to be the real deal.

Great match win Venus Williams

Venus isn't back has I don't think the Venus of 2000-02 would have been taken to 2 tiebreaks against 16 year old newcomer

But Venus didn't allow Ana into the match Ana forced herself in and Venus had just enough at the end to win

Who's hypocrite??? I have read this kind of thread already a hundred times, when she won early rounds and then folding up in the quarters or semis.

Get real!!!!! Is she really back????? 7-6 7-6????? a player in what rank??? and mind u this could be the first big match of Ana.

Go Venus!!! Keep fighting and taking names new and old. I am just so happy that she was able to pull off the win despite her younger opponents eagerness to win.

Nowadays you don't know who is going to step up and challenge on the women's side.



Congrats Queen Vee!!

Hmmm.....it was great fighting by Venus, but I think the Venus of old wouldn愒 have given back those early breaks....but must say that Ana played very very well...she was hitting aces and just going for broke.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Yes, much like Sprem at wimbledon.

I totally agree.
Though I must say I am happy
that we really saw that fight there!

Their was no doubt she was running hot and cold
but she stuck with it against a person who knew
no fear even when she was down.

I most happy over the fighting spirit!

She's not back but,
we did see glimpses here and there.
