Vee looking tired

Is it just me or is our Queen looking a bit winded? I know she had to play for three days straight, could it be taking a toll now?

Re: Vee looking tired

or is it that you're making an excuse so that if she loses you'll have something to blame it on. Marion has played way more than Venus the past couple days, Venus hasn't played three sets since 3rd round.

Daniela Hantuchova
Magdalena Rybarikova
Dechy - Radwanska - Petkovic
Cornet - Zakopalova - Cirstea
Lisicki - Medina Garrigues - Bondarenko
K.Kucova - Cibulkova - Wienerova

Re: Vee looking tired

No she doesnt look tired..just making too many forehand errors. But Bartoli is tuff! I see how she beat Henin...Bartoli plays tennis like Monica Seles.....actually JUSTINE was have been easier to play in the final! lol

Venus and Serena ....Often imitated NEVER duplicated!!!!!!!

Re: Vee looking tired

No, shes not lookin tired. shes playin pretty good. her level has come down since the start though...... Bartoli is trackin down a lot of balls. I'm wonderin how long she can last cause Venus is running her all around the court.

Re: Vee looking tired

Venus just seems a bit nervous. If she bags the first set, she will relax and start swinging more freely.

Re: Vee looking tired

No, Venus looks a bit nervous. She´s getting into fighting mode now or so it seems. Let´s go Venus.
Marion is really dangerous.

Re: Vee looking tired

If she breaks right here. the 2nd set might be a steam roll.

Re: Vee looking tired

I think Bartoli will try one of her famous comebacks now. I think she has a chance if Venus starts playing worse. What do you guys think?

Re: Vee looking tired

Nerves. Hope she loosens up now that the 1st set is in the bag.

By the way: couldn't have been a better start. When Venus blows out the 1st set, she has a letdown. Also, as Justine learned yesterday, never beat a good player 6-0 or 6-1 unless it's the last set....

Someone is quietly turning back the clock...to them bulldozer dayz...

Always on the lookout for a great tennis match.

Re: Vee looking tired

Nah, she's just playing with caution. It's like she is afraid to make errors

Re: Vee looking tired
