Watching Venus this tournament, I'm a bit surprised at the amount of wrist she uses on her forehand. This is a player with chronic wrist injuries, and she's cranking topspin into virtually every forehand. I don't know if that's why her wrists get injured so much, or just why she's playing so well, but it's very surprising. She's been playing VERY clean tennis since the 4th round.
Having said all that, I have to give Bartoli a chance, since I have no idea how she beat Henin. Either way, Venus record of being the lowest seeded Wimbledon winner in the Open Era is going to fall.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
