I saw it too.
A few more comments:
--The score could have been harsher if Venus wouldn't have made a lot of double faults. She admitted in the interview later that she had to 'fight with her serve today'.
--It was stunning to see her performing so many touchy drop-shots, from the baseline or the net. Almost always made the point.
Against someone standing further behind the baseline than Hingis, it will be even more devastating.
--From what I understood (they translated in German...argh!), she told that she slightly turned her ankle during her first match, but there was little pain until yesterday during the match. She put a lot of ice during the evening, the night, the morning, and now she's ok.
