I agree, she's really been coming in and finishing points off well today. Also her passing shots, have looked good. Her forehand has been pretty solid too

Venus would crush her at this point...

The passing shot have improved the most.
She thinks more where to giude/hit them, going for placement instead of power
Also very fluid mobilty, instead of jerky movement

Venus is taking it one match at time.
However I feel your pain if they were to meet.

Felt more comfortable with things after she got her serving under control. That truthfully was the only thing that concerned me early on. Winning definitely puts an extra glow into you and Venus has that all throughout much of what she is doing. I was impressed with her keeping the net play, I liked that a lot and some of her passing shots/forehand as it's been noted were beautiful.

Yes, she did a great job at the net, and she will improve it with each match, she is really focused.

I was shocked to see an offensive lob from Venus. Pleased. Very pleased, actually, but you know she's relaxed when she willing to that.

Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

venus played good, at first a little rusty, her game was good in the right times. I love her move, specially on the run with those passing backhands, really the best shots! Seriously a 1st Round match, venus sure will pick up her level!! now Maria Kirilikenko on second Round! Im so lucky to get to see venus,sveta, gaston, nadal on first day!

Venus Williams (The Queen) , Maria Sharapova (The Diva) , Lindsay Davenport (The Legend) , Jelena Janković (The Exotic Beauty) , Serena Williams (The Princess) , Ana Ivanovic (the REAL Promise)

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

Very good point. And she looks relaxed and confident doing it too. She used to execute the lob with a high degree of uncertainity.
It looks like she has decided to perfect some of the little weapons we always thought she had but never used effectively

And a damn good one too! With fluidity in her motion and no nervousness as the ball left her racket
