Just what match are Mary joe & Drysdale watching?

This commentary heavily in favor of Venus is utter rubbish! it was bad enough when Golovin went up 3-0 in the 1st set and Mary joe said Venus was hitting the better shots. WTF??? Golovin continues to win easily thru the set. then Drysdale says the score was closer then it appears. another WTF???? christ just admit Venus is being outplayed!

Venus is making error after error, winner, error, winner from Golovin, errror, error, winner, error.

THAT sums up the match.

Outplayed my ass, are YOU watching the same match?!

She can't keep the ball in play for shit!

Yes I do, do you?

Anybody with common sense, or even decent vision can see that Venus is spraying ball after ball. It's quite terrible!

Even if Venus is making these errors, Golovin is playing the right shots and she is outplaying her because she's playing somewhat clean tennis. She's hitting the ball deep and she's hit some nice volleys and drop shots. Problem is that no one is giving Tati ANY credit for what she's doing.

for the first 3 games Venus was playing well and in control but went down 3-0. Golovin was jsut getting the ball back in play. Later on Golovin upped her level but Venus is still making error after error. The score doesn't tell everything.

Yes, I do play tennis, and I know that when you're spraying balls all over the place that it's time to hit with more top spin and stop trying to hit the ball as hard as you can.

Don't you know that Venus never loses? She only beats herself.

If you're keeping the ball in play and your opponent isn't, then you're outplaying them.

Like I said in another thread. Venus is playing like crap and Golovin is playing very well clean tennis.

Venus has picked it up a bit. I hope she can somehow pull the match to her.
She can do it.

How can you outplay somebody when they don't even give you the chance to outplay them?

All errors from Venus - but she has been down 6-2, 4-0 there before and came back so its going to happen again most likely.
