Talking (8) V. Williams Def. Peng 6-3, 6-1

Great win for Venus, though I am still worried about the forehand. But she seved very well today, I think better than Tuesday. Plus, I'd like to see her come to net more.

Good serving from Venus. Up and down match, but I am pleased with what I saw, it was an improvement over her last match.

she played beautifully overall. peng gave her a good match, and really it should have been more competitive. venus just did everything right-- always kept the pressure up. peng played well in a lot of "middles" middle of the game is where she's playing her best. she got off to aweful starts in some games and found herself crawling back, and venus always seemed to be there to shut the door with a great shot. i think her serve really won her the match today, if you have to point to just one shot.

gl v, against shashnova!
and hopefully peng can get it together a little more. i like her and really hope to see her have a full package game one day.

yeah i think she won every point at the net, but match point (the easiest net point the whole match)

her serve was well toady. but her high precentage is more so due to the fact that her pace she has dropped considerably. that is why peng was hitting "occasional" winners on her first serves.

Yeah Peng has a future, she has a lot to work on though. Her serve is no where need good enough to match the worlds top women players.

But nice win for Venus, she served well today!

One step closer to a Molik vs Williams fourth round!

yeah I'm happy Venus won big not playing well because when she wins big and plays well it seems she always plays bad the next match.

Go Venus! You Can Do It!

Yes, Peng did make Vee work but she kept her composure and looked good out there. I am glad that her serve held up...now she needs to keep those errors under control....

She plays Smashnova next. This was a match I was expecting and wasn't worried about. I don't think Venus has ever lost to Anna and I don't think she will lose on Saturday.

I think she lost one point at the net and that was in the last game.

Venus seemed so timid most of the time and that forehand....oh my God. If Venus was playing one of the top 20 she wouldn't have gotten away with that kind of play.

She didn't play aggressively nor did she seem to be moving well (Taped knee?). Her serve was good, and her second serve at times was better than usual. First double in the 13th game? Nice.

She's not moving the way she did against Kuzzie in Hong Kong. And frankly there were too many forehand errors, especially when she had the open court several times and kept jamming the ball into the net.

Personally I think the match against Daniilidou was better because she just seemed to be doing more and making more of an effort. Not to mention that Eleni is a higher ranked and more experienced player than Peng; therefore Venus should reall have had the tougher match against her.

I wish MJF had asked her about the knee though. If it was orecautionary why wasn't she wearing it in the first match as well. Is she waiting to feel something before she takes a precaution. I was really hopeful for Venus to do well here and I hope she still can even though I'm not feeling it right now.


It's 2008 and I'm shopping for a new fave. Hell no! And Venus is still playing?


I Love You, Roger and Venus, 5-time Wimbledon Champions!
