Venus says she's playing better than Wimbledon!

She made this statement after her match today against Razzano. I wish I could have seen this match to see if Razzano was as good as Venus says. With 6 DFs, I don't know what she means by playing better. Anyway, I'm just glad she won.

"I felt like I did make some errors," Williams said. "But I played very aggressive. I think she played really well. She played her best tennis. She didn't give me any points."

Williams, the six-time Grand Slam champion, is coming off her fourth Wimbledon title last month. Williams believes she is getting closer to her elite level from prior years after an injury-filled 2006 season.

"I feel really motivated because more than anything I feel really relaxed," she said. "I think I'm playing actually better than Wimbledon."

the dfs seemed to be the only bad thing about her play. she has played well and except for todays second set she has served well and broken serve well. and you know once she gets to the quarters her play will be elevated.

Razzano played her best tennis and still lost 6-2 6-4... venus should be playing out of her mind then, daniela will make her work, hopefully will win tomorrow

Re: Venus says she's playing better than Wimbledon!

the last time she boasted about her form was Miami b4 the Sharapova match where she said, "I feel like my 2nd serve is top of the tops." lol and then proceeded to DF like 15 times.
I hope Venus isn't jinxing herself.

I agree but her serve will come back but she really is playing better than at Wimbledon.

Re: Venus says she's playing better than Wimbledon!

she made 41 UE
and 30 Winners

that's okay by Venus' standards. I'm not sure but do they count DF in the UE count? She def. played much cleaner at Wimbledon but then again she didn't go for as much at Wimbledon. It seems like she's trying to go back to being super aggressive again.

Re: Venus says she's playing better than Wimbledon!

Well we all know that on some days... Razzano can beat almost anyone. She can lose to anybody, but usally plays her best against top players.

yeah actually for a 62 64 match that's a lot of UE. But she also hit 30 winners so it's not soooo bad. I've def. seen Venus hit way more UE than that.

Re: Venus says she's playing better than Wimbledon!

I think she is playing more agressive to test her skills and build her confidence. I believe she was trying some things out (as she often does with lower ranked players) so that she can use them on the tougher players later in the draw. The last thing these girls want is a confident Venus going for her shots.
