Marta is returning Venus' bomb serves very well

I mean she's sending those first serves back with interest. Wow...I'm impressed. This girl came to play and is really taking it to Venus. This first set is key. If Marta can take it, Venus could be in some trouble.

Re: Marta is returning Venus' bomb serves very well

I'm surprised that someone with a great game like Marta could be ranked so low/had to play qualifying.

Serena. Simona. Ana. Petra. Venus.

Re: Marta is returning Venus' bomb serves very well

Well it appears as though Marta will be one to watch in 2008. They talked about how she was really doing well before, then slid down, but that she is now trying to regroup and show the talent she initially did.

Re: Marta is returning Venus' bomb serves very well

I'm impressed but Venus has figured her out now. She's two points from losing the first set and her chances of doing anything go down DRASTICALLY after that. Still, good showing for the Pole.

Re: Marta is returning Venus' bomb serves very well

Can we safely say that Marta is beating herself?

Venus took the first set and the reason being is that Marta started fash and kind of shook Venus up, but Venus didn't crack and Marta's level dropped.

Re: Marta is returning Venus' bomb serves very well

Well, Venus stayed calm, dug her teeth in, and took control of the first set. She always shows such little emotion in her games, but you can tell by her reaction at the end of the first set that she wants it and has lots of emotion.

She sure is returning well. Meanwhile Venus is cool , calm and collected as usual

I agree.. she definitely doesn't like what her ranking is.

Re: Marta is returning Venus' bomb serves very well

its so fucking anonoying when a player screws things up so much for herself. Domachowska was ahead 2 times and gave it away within 2 minutes on her own serve both times. Venus played a REALLY REALLY bad set and she still won 6-4. Venus can't play worse then she did in this set so she'll close it out easily now.

I wouldn't be so sure about that, but if she can get up a break of serve, she'll be on her way.

The first set from Venus was not great, but it wasn't really, really bad either
