first people say venus was passive, but then they see that she had way more winners and unforced errors than maria, who actually dictated more points. if fans are so delusional that they can't see that maria was tugging venus around the baseline on a string that entire match, then that's their issue (and their mistake).
then they wanna paint the picture that this was some ultra close match and that maria played out of her mind and that venus has all these other "levels" she can play at. well where are they?
to think venus is going to improve throughout the rest of her career and that maria will either stay the same or get worse is just retarded.
