With Venus, it is one match at a time these days.
She is still rebuilding her game and you have to respect that she has hung in there, despite all the criticism and bad losses to people she used to dominate consistently, if not easily. But she is a champion and she can find the most amazing shots when pushed against the wall. Got to love that about her!
And while she is not fully confident on clay, she's no slouch either. Only a couple of players have better clay court credentials than she does: Justine and Hingis, and perhaps more recently Petrova. After that, she has about as good a chance as anyone else. Mauresmo has never even made it to the SF at RG, let alone win it. Neither has Kutzie or Schnyder the other top players in her draw.
