Venus might as well get her mail forwarded to Serena's shadow. She's going to be there forever!

Yeah, it was a good match. Great play from all four players, but VeeBob just too good.

Assuming that they play Mirnyi and Zheng is the SF, this will likely be the toughest match-up.

I hope they take the title and team up again for the U.S. Open.

It was a good match.

Venus got a shot in the ribs by Paes But she laughed it off

Bob was the best player on court. They all played well. Some of Venus' returns were really good especially the one she hit so hard down the middle that looked like it went through Paes' rackety

She got broken once, but they broke Stosur straight away. They broke Stosur again before Bob served it out!!!

They now play Zheng and Max, who played really well today.

Good luck Venus & Bob

Ye guys are in for a treat if ye are gonna watch it. I am eternally greateful to the BBC for showing it live Venus really picked up her play as the match went on, especially in the first set tiebreaker she played a crucial role on getting the setpoints. In the second it was pretty much all about Bob, he played unbelievable tennis and he set up the breakpoints for Venus on Stosur's serve at 4-3. Vee missed the first one coz Paes had great net coverage but she unleashed an outrageous return winner on the second bp away from him. I mean Sam and Leander played superbly but it says a lot for Vee and Bob that they were able to beat them in straights Overall, just a really entertaining match full of high quality tennis. I was glad to be able to banish away the horrid memories of seeing a gutted Venus leave the same court last saturday and replace them today with a giggling Venus. Herself and Bob sure like having a right old natter at the change of ends

YAY!!! Congrats to Vee/Bob!!! I think they did an excellent job! Sam was playing really well (love u sam!!!) and leander was awesome at net! But in the end it was Bob's great reactions and Venus' fantabulous returns/groundstrokes that lifted the win!!!

Up next Mirnyi/Zheng, the number 2 seed. It's getting tougher and tougher for Vee/Bob but they will prevail!! Good luck VeeBOB!!! ^-^

*Thanks to StarSports for featuring the match!! Yay!!!
**Sorry if I keep on posting the same message. There's just so many threads I couldn't decide. Can we just merge them? hehehe :>
