McDonalds tour:Venus defeats Serena 5-7 6-4 10-6 3rd set 10 pt [ten point tiebreak]

This is the scoreline of their match in New Orleans.

Hi, I'm new!

I got this from Serenawilliams.com.

This is what a user named "SW'sBiGGeSTfan" said:

" Venus wins 5-7 6-4 10-6 (3rd set 10 pt. tiebreak). Overall I was in shock and how great they look. They are even more beautiful in person than on t.v. As far as fitness goes, Venus looks to be her tip top shape and has even put on a lil muscle i would say. She was hitting the forehand beautifully tonight and her 1st serves were either aces or unreturnables. As for the backhand, she did not hit a single two hander all night. She sliced every backhand. I was really impressed with her new shot. I think its gonna set up some great forward movement into the net and establish new ways for her to win points. However, I do not think she will win the AO without a two handed backhand. But if her wrist reaches 100 percent by Jan. and she implements the slice into her repertoire, then she stands an amazing chance. As for Serena, she is looking almost as fit as ever. I'd say if she keeps it up then by Hobart she will be perfect. Her groundstrokes were in great shape and her forehand held up very well. However, she served extremely slow and Venus destroyed her 2nd and sometimes 1st serves. I'd say she averaged in the low 90s for 1st serves. She also seemed very tired at the end of the match. Throughout the match she was extremely quiet and disconnected from the audience. Venus however, pulled 2 people out of the audience to "coach" her and one person ( a young boy) to play a game against Serena when Venus was down 7-5 4-1. Serena showed no mercy. But Venus spoke to us several times on the mic and was extremely entertaining. Overall I think that at this rate both of them are moving forward into one of the best seasons of their lives. If Venus can fully recover the wrist and Serena can regain her serving prowess and finish the last few goals of her fitness then we're looking at a Williams dominated year."



I don't know what to think to be honest.

Sounds like a close match.
Worried about Venus' backhand and Serena's serve though.
Nice revenge for Venus. But dissapointment for my one and only.

I really don't understand how anyone can analyze any player's condition game wise from watching these type of matches. You have to realize that all players hold back in these events. Since day one of this tour I haven't put too much stock into the results. I'm just glad they are raising money for charity.

Serena may be holding back even more because she knows venus can't return the booming serves and was contributing to the entertainment.

Rena

i hope this indicates something for next year i think Vee not using the 2hb its just cuz she doesnt want to so that she becomes injury free for next year im loving the way he talked about Vee's servers and returns

Rena getting fit is the key im glad its only the service she'll be fine when she arrives in Hobart

btw Welcome ^_^

Serena did the exact same thing last year when i saw her in D.C., she wasnt hitting her serves fast at all and was acting all serious throwing her racket and stuff so the crowd became like Anti Serena..

Daniela Hantuchova : WaKe uP FrOm thiS NiGhTmArE!!!!
Serena Williams : Finally BaCk to HeR DoMiNaTiNg SeLF!! WhEn ShE's PLaYiNg!

Jelena Dokic : ShOw uS WhAt yOu CaN dO!
