I'm really disappointed in yet again, talk about fixing a match. It didn't make sense when the Elena's and commentators of the world were saying it without proof and it doesn't make sense now. For two girls, to be as good as they are, to lose a match just for the sake of it makes no sense. And, if in the past, if the outcome was already dictated, then wouldn't the outcome of the semi-final, the outcome of the final also be decided? Why would Serena lose to Venus and vice versa only to have a loss in the next round? What would have been accomplished? Again, it makes no sense.
Second, Venus lost today, but in that loss there was a lot that a fan can hang onto that lets them and Venus hold their head very high. Venus isn't quite there where she needs to be, but she is playing better. And to doubt that Venus herself basically hasn't decided to get better is yet another thing that makes no sense to me. Why just go on court to lose? She might as well dedicate all her time to charity and her interior designing company if she had to desire or determination to get better.
Venus played well, she just did not play well enough against a hot player today. Venus deserves the credit of getting this far and having a very good showing in this tournament.
