Good Match: Venus vs Daniela!

When somebody gets a break point on serve, the set its gonna be for the other one! Tight Match!


"People said, we weren't going to make it because we were from the 'hood. People didn't believe in us because of where we came from." Venus Williams.

It's an interesting matchup. One of the prettiest games (Hantuchova) versus one of the ugliest games (Venus)...yet they seem equally effective today.

Venus just broke - Daniella belongs in the top ten - some of those touches are net are just great!

Venus is picking it up. This is by far the best Venus has looked this event. If she plays like this...she could go very far.

Venus has first set. I hope Daniela doesn't crumble mentally now. She's been very strong so far

I didn't say that. She's playing great actually. My point is that her manner on the court has always seemed ugly to me (as in not refined) whereas Daniela has one of the most refined, "pretty" games in tennis (not that that helps her win matches...in fact, it hurts her). It's an interesting matchup because of that.

Great Match even though the pace is very slow.

My Reason For Living Is Too See Venus Dominate In 2007!!!!

Venus seriously needs to start grunting because it seems to give her more mmmph on her groundstrokes. But, seriously, I'm not too impressed from what I have seen from Venus. Her forehand is just scary (in a bad way). Also her movement isn't the best. Her groundstrokes are either out or really short into the court. She should be happy that Dani choked that game to her.

Pretty 119 mph ace. Venus came back from 5-5 0-40(Daniela's serve) with big winners. Quite steely under pressure today, won all 30-30 points on her serve, but still Vnus' errors keep it close. Venus has 19 winners to Daniela's 8

this match is the best match I've seen during Wimbledon this year so far...

both players are playing well... I mean, first break point coming at 5-5. Dani was up 40-0, hit an double fault and lost her serve...

I hope Dani can keep this level of play up...

I'm annoyed when all these players don't make their winners to keep it close, It's just Venus' winners and errors
