Congrats to Lindsay.She really deserved to win. As a Venus fan, I have this to say. Go work on that forehand-like everyday.

She's Young, Gifted, And Smart!!!
She's The Baddest Serving B*tch Of The WTA!!!

Thank God Lindsay was finally able to get into the match, she was so not focused for almost two sets....... Good job for Lindsay, when she has bad days mentally staying focused and hungry in a match, she usually loses.

Lindsay showed why she is number one but this match was a must win for both of them. To lose in a Teir II quarterfinal is not an option for Venus or Lindsay. Lindsay had to show her own self that she still could beat a Williams or Belgian. Venus had to show that beating Serena was not a fluke. They seemed to have both pass oddly enough.

great job for lindsay. i'm glad venus took a set but honestly didn't think that venus would win. right now, lindsay is more consistent than her..

No way do I agree with this! Even Lindsay said in her post match interview that she was having a hard time getting into the match, and it showed in the first set. She was not doing anything with her shots, she was flat footed and lethargic, and hitting double faults at some really bad moments. Sure, Venus was playing very well in the first, but even so, she shouldn't have wone the first set 6-1 with Lindsay if Lindsay had been focused and on her game............. Linds was just hitting the ball back like she wanted to keep it in play for quite some time, not taking control, not directing her shots at all.
