Well, i was spot-on in my prediction.
::stop the accolades, i am not a prophet, okay
I was not suprised at all. Venus should have even won 6-4 6-2. I just followed the scores.
You see, the QUEEN can really move the ball around, contrary to what some might have you believe. In fact i would expect Venus to beat the top players most of the tome on Clay. Because she rallies more and can measure her aggressiveness better than say Serena.
All the characteristics of clay presents other opportunities, although she cannot play dominant tennis on clay as she does on hardcourts. But note that nobody could do that either. On clay, opponents always have chances.
Personally Martina, the way she plays now, have better chance on hardcourts against the QUEEN, because she could get some pace. Remember, what separates the QUEEN from the other tall players is her ability to get to all balls and return with fire (courtesy of Lindsay). So she has more time to plan her game.
I hope you being the great Statistician, you've noticed that it was far back as 1998 when Martina beat Venus on clay.
