I was there last night, and even though Serena was obviously hampered, she put up one hell of a fight. There was a game in the second set, when Venus was serving to either go up 5-4 or 6-5 (sorry, I can't remember which) and it was deuce, ad too many times to count. Serena would get it to deuce playing a spectacular return, and then when it was her ad the ball always inevitably went into the net at the return (Though that was mostly Venus's fault. Some of her serves were amazing). Serena looked pissed that she wasn't able to take advantage, and I thought it was cool she was taking it seriously, despite it only being an exhibition.
Venus was playing really well, but last night she was way too overeager at net. She had multiple floaters and she'd crush them 10 feet out. Both of their backhands were great. Their forehands were performing alright last night, but not as well as I would have wished.
Anyway, Venus seemed to be having a good time and played a bit to the crowd. It was endearing. She settled herself more firmly as my second favorite player, but I was also really impressed with Serena, who kept playing hard, even though it looked like she wincing near the end.
