Plus zero winners means Venus was aggressive on the return.

Yeah but still...zero winners. Even Anna Smashnova can get two or three off of Venus in a match

Go Venus! Assuming that she was playing agressively, it's perfectly normal to have a high number of UEs, though it was too much for such scoreline.

Good for Venus.


To my eye the impressive stat is the winner-error ratio. As long as it's close it's a well played match.

I just cant get that excited over matches she's supposed to win easily.

When she faces someone in the top ten and wins then I will be impressed.

It's not about who she beats, it's about how she is playing. Also you have to win these matches to get to top ten players.

I never thought Venus would lose this match, but I thought Groenefeld would give her a little more trouble! Great match from Venus!
