Not sure. Both have big serves. It'll be whoever takes their breakpoint chances. Venus hasn't been too great at that in her last couple of matches but, then, Ana may get nervous. We'll see.

Venus seems to be on a roll right now so I think Ana would have to play unbelievable tennis to topple her. Vee to win in straights

When you compare the level of the 2 matches today, Venus - Kuznetsova was a much higher standard match. If Venus keeps playing the way she's playing she will win in 2 sets, Ivanovic does not have the speed to trouble Venus if she's playing well

Grassonkova.

If Venus plays the way she did against Maria and Sveta, Venus in 2. Venus has never lost to anyone on Centre Court but Serena. It hard to go against Venus at this late stage at Wimbledon. She has clearly turned a corner and has her eyes firmly set on title #4.

Venus had played amazing, but I think we will go back to crappy Venus.

Not really. Sveta made some really horrible UEs. Not shots that she hit out because she was on the run or wrong footed, shots that she was standing still for, had an open court, and still couldn't hit in. Neither Sveta nor Venus took their chances. Sveta was 1/7 on break points, Venus was something like 3/11. Once Sveta failed to take her break point chances at the very beginning of the match, she never looked like she had enough confidence in her shots.

Venus and Sveta between them hit 43 UEs in two sets. Ana and Nicole hit 60 in three sets. When you take into account that Ana and Nicole were on court for a lot longer, there's not much in that.

But I agree that speed is a key advantage for Venus.

Re: WIMBY SF -- Ana Ivanovic (6) vs. Venus Williams (23) WHO WILL WIN?

I think it'll be tough for Ivanovic to derail Vee if she keeps her game up like these last 2 rounds

BUT if Ivanovic plays with no fear like in the FO SF then Vee won't have an easy win this match is interesting because I think Vee has the advantage and she is 5-0 in Wimbledon SF

this match will be a real test IMO to see if she can be consistent from round to round and I think not having a day off is helping her to keep playing well
