It looked like Venus hit the last ball out on purpose

??

did you guys notice that? On the matchball it looked that as soon as Venus saw Henin return come back she just kind of already shrugged and swatted the ball away, it was out by like 7 meters

I didn't notice it. Her grunt at the end told me that she disappointed with that ball/hit.

Re: It looked like Venus hit the last ball out on purpose

Venus was physically spent in a way that she wouldn't have been in the late 90s or early part of this decade. It may be to do with her anaemia.

Make no doubt about it, she underestimated Henin's athleticism and ability to square up to her. And it all backfired.

Re: It looked like Venus hit the last ball out on purpose

You would taught that at 4-5 (30-40) and on her own serve, she would just swat out the ball on purpose?

So, what has she been trying to do for the past 1 3/4 hours? Losing? :retard:

Lost to Serena Williams 4-6, 6-3, 2-6 (Great job, girl! Now prepare for FO!)

Sure, she broke Henin back and then intentionally hit the matvhbal out. Get real.

If only I was sure that my head on the door was a dream

Re: It looked like Venus hit the last ball out on purpose

Well, at least she was hitting a lot deeper than Serena...her serve sucked, though. Justine's body is so absolutely fit. She doesn't seem to have an ounce of fat on her, She's pure, lean, muscle and amazingly gifted. i'm in awe. Wish Venus could have pulled it off though. Hmm, Justine just seems way more serious and focused than Serena and Venus. Well, in the end, all 3 are great champions.

how is someone commenting that anemia can make someone physically tired an excuse? When Justine lost to Bartoli, wasn't just about everyone, including Justine, trying to figure out what went wrong. That's what people do, they analyze players and matches, if no one did that, how would anyone ever improve or correct mistakes?

Re: It looked like Venus hit the last ball out on purpose

Yes, she did everything she could to give Justine the match, but she is so good that she just was able to lose the match at 7-6/6-4... and she almost failed to put that ball out... ahah

Venus is a fighter to the last ball, she wouldn't do that.

This is now 2 summer following Wimby win she is exhausted.
One would have thought she and her coaching staff would work on it

Venus would never LITERALLY give up. But I think her body had: Justine, little Juju, was the fitter and more resilient player.

Contrary to what Papa Williams says, Justine is hard as nails, and not his daughters.
