Venus didn't play well, she fought at the end, but way too many FH errors and she wasn't aggressive enough. She hit up the middle most of the time much to my chagrin.

it wasn't like venus didn't play well. actually venus played amazingly. so i don't think vaporize is a good word. 'beat' would do.

ROCK ON:
elena dementieva, serena williams, caroline wozniacki, ana ivanovic
david nalbandian, rafael nadal, andy murray, gael monfils, jo-wilfried tsonga

She played reaaaaally well for most of the match then made some crappy errors at critical points. Maria took her chances much better today.

Really good match from both!

I agree with Maria that it came down to
taking advantage of Venus fh errors.

Funny thing is Venus had more winners.
She had 11 more winners and 12 more errors.


Venus should take a lot from this match, she served well,
fought well, and was outplayed this time but I definitely
like where she is headed!

Congrats Maria!

Great try Venus!

Love Venus but this is the reason I wanted Serena to win. Of the 2 sisters only Serena can beat Maria.

You obviously didn't watch this match because no
one who did could say that with a straight face!
