Just from looking at the stats, poor second serve conversion and UE's did Venus in. I didn't expect her to win this tournament as it is her first one back in three months, but I am glad she had a good run. She plays Rome next and I expect at least a QF result there too. If she can work on her second serve, she should be fine for the French Open.

On with the Russian snooze-fest!

Venus well done. Some of those games were pretty close, so you gave a good account of yourself against a french open favourite. It's good to see you back on the tour, and hopefully you can just build from this, gets stronger for he tournaments that matter, and DESECRATE svetlana the next time she cross you.

I guess well done svetlana... but i can't get over how boring the WTA is becoming with all these russian matches. WTA should do something, they will lose viewers. There is a crisis!!!

I am not disappointed either. Like I said, she should be fine for the French Open because there isn't a clear cut favorite.

yes, Kuznestsova was too strong for Venus today, but with practice I am sure Venus can really get better.

i am sure we will see an improvement by the time Venus reaches the FO.

This is fine. Venus can now hit the practice courts with her coach and dad and be ready for Rome. Yeah!

Yep, she just needs more matches, hit her stride. She'll be ok. This is usually her time of year, May, June, July, August!

Neither of them are clear cut favorites. They will be in the mix, but I wouldn't be surprised if neither one of them got the final.
