She's a very good player. But she doesn't have the weapons to beat a Venus. Hits fairly flat, goes for the lines, and pretty consistent. Though, if someone can outhit her, she's very weak on her back foot. Against Vesnina (Final round of Toronto qualifying) she took advantage of her opponents errors, and when she was down, she fought even harder to level the match. If Venus thinks her match is on Louis Armstrong, Rika has a chance. But otherwise, 6-2 6-3. She should give us some great points though.
