Talking (10) V. Williams Def. Fujiwara 6-3, 6-1

Nice win for Venus . She started out show, but cleaned up her game after she held for 3-3 and broke for a 4-3 lead in the first set. I think she struggled in the beginning because she probably never played her opponent before.

Good Luck In 2012 To The Following:
Venus Williams
Serena Williams
Vania King, Sloane Stephens
Michael Joseph Jackson|1958-2009|RIP King of Music

Whitney Elizabeth Houston|1963-2012|RIP Queen of Music

She played really well.. though I wish Venus could do something with those zits on her face. With $5 and a trip to the $.99 store I'm sure to find something to fix Venus face.

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

She needs to pop those 2 huge zits on her left cheek. Good lord.

But awesome stuff from Venus

I only caught the last set but Venus played great in it.

I like Fujiwara's return of serve. That short bunting motion.

Great match Venus!!!

A very slow start, but then it was brilliant tennis, I can only expect her getting better with each match.

Wish you the best luck Vee!!!


PS Serena looked great from the stands!

Fujiwara just didn't have the tools to challenge Venus. Great commitment and fight though. Nice hands at net too.

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.
