The USTA Organizers made a HUGE boo-boo this time at the USO 2007...

If they had not postponed / rescheduled the Venus-Jelena match a day after Justine-Serena, Venus could have won the match (in straights or a marathon), get another day's extra rest, would be much fresher against Justine and defeat her, be in the final....and win the USO.

Instead, they decide to go for ratings... and lost it all. Bet they forgot the H2H record between Venus and Jelena (especially the last 3 matches before this).

Yeah, I know that Venus and Jelena consented to it... but still...

Especially after Venus's tough draw. I know Justine had an injured Serena as well but Venus had such a tough draw.

Good luck to Kusnestova. She might just win this!

Well no doubt Vee would have been a lot fresher for today's clash but as someone said it is her own fault for consenting to it in the first place

I'm proud of Venus. She tried but she came up short. NO shame in that! Justine held her nerves and benefited from Vee's errors. Tomorrow is another day.

I mean , you should have more faith in juju.
Give her support, trust her ability.
Especially when she's in top fom, I can't see why you can't trust her more.
That's what a fan is for,isn't it ?

Re: The USTA Organizers made a HUGE boo-boo this time at the USO 2007...

I disagree that Venus HAD a say. I honestly believe the USTA organizers can really do whatever the hell they want and they did. It wasn't a smart move on Venus/Jelena's part. Venus was most likely a bit winded in the second set she fought hard against Justine but it wasn't enough. At least Venus won a slam this year she can't feel too badly about that.
