Venus won't underestimate Bartoli
Let's face it....like everybody else, Venus was probably expecting to get family revenge on Justine in the final (for Serena's defeat).
Now that that isn't the case, some people think she'll let the standard of her game drop in the face of a player with a lesser reputation.
I don't see that happening. I've seen the laser-like look of determination Venus has been wearing since the 4th round. She wants this fourth Wimbledon title badly, and doesn't really care who she has to destroy to get it.
I think she'll come out, and play Bartoli as if she's the no.1 ranked player in the world. She'll do her best to hit her off the court. Venus herself has had too many down times, to suddenly get cocky and underestimate an opponent. If Bartoli can beat the world no.1 and get into a Wimbledon final, she's dangerous. Venus knows this,and will play her match as if she were facing Justine.
