Hong Kong SF: Venus Williams def. Elena Dementieva 63 63



Elena didn't play well. Too many errors and her serve sucked.

Venus did play well, was the better player.

Sharapova vs Williams final.

Venus held her last two service games to love. Elena went down a double break in the second set and only got one back.

Venus looked almost unstoppable from 2-3 down in the first set.

Did Venus have to call the trainer?

good win venus. i was worried a bit when elena got 2 of the breaks back in the second and venus failed to convert some bps. i thought a 3rd set was coming but fortunately venus proved me wrong. now beat maria in the finals but please dont destroy her like at wimbledon i want a close match. i hope both ca serve well in the final.

What was Venus' injury? Just as they were speaking to her the video link cut off?

Lena's serve was awful. She faught and hit some nice shots at least in the 2nd.

Venus played well in the 2nd but looked a bit sluggish in the 1st. Hopefully nothing too serious with the injury. Now kill Sharapova.

Grassonkova.
