Like Serena Maria's Serve is the backbone of her game.

Venus has not even broken her once and has not had one break point. She needs to learn how to block that serve back or something.

Venus is not being aggressive and Maria is making her pay. You can't hit down the middle against Maria. Venus is not thinking. Where's the grunt?? Where's the intensity??

Venus is not being as aggressive as she was in her first match. She's playing to the middle, but Sharapova can't really match her movement so I think changing the direction of the ball would work to her advantage.

Good Luck in 2005 to:

Martina Hingis-Welcome Back!

Venus Williams-Queen of Tennis

Ana Ivanovic-Future Champion

Kim Clijsters-Darling of Tennis

Honorable Mentions: Dinara Safina, Justine Henin-Hardenne, Lindsay Davenport, Svetlana Kuznetsova. Good Luck Girls!

Its going to be difficult for anyone to beat Sharapova when she's serving as well as she has today.

Even Justine found a way to break her.

Sharapova came to play, and play she did. Boy! Serves, ground strokes and angles. Venus isn't playing that bad either, but the 17-yr old doesn't let up.
