Venus Vs Sharapova: Hong Kong Final Highlights


I have to tell ya, Venus is looking REALLY GOOD! Sharapova looks pretty sharp too. I like the "Venus" song they played after Venus won...and the dancing was awesome!



Sharapova has become a very gracious and mature speaker win or lose. I remember earlier in her career how annoying she would be when she would speak at an event. She is so comfortable now. Is Hong Kong really an exhibition? These girls look like they were playing as thou they were in a Grand Slam!

Vee's Forehand looks really good! Look out Justine Henin!

Re: Venus Vs Sharapova: Hong Kong Final Highlights

Is it me, or is Venus hitting really hard or like she did in 2000-2001? It's been a while since I've seen her killing the ball like this

I agree.. She was really belting the ball

"I want to do things on my own terms, I can't have anything take me out.
I have never given up and it's important for me to prove to myself that I can do this, and to prove to me that i'm a champion.
If I were just to sit down, lay down and give in, then I wouldn't have any respect for myself."

Re: Venus Vs Sharapova: Hong Kong Final Highlights

there was this one part..
i think it was 2-5 Maria 2nd set..
one guy shouted
"come on Maria, we dont want to go home early"


one thing i noticed from Vee
was the way she was defending her service game..
it really seems like she doesnt wanna be broken...

Yeah i stopped the video and didn't watch the ball...i just looked at MAria and Venus footing to see who was stading where...Maris is way behind the baseline. Venus is destroying the ball
