Re: Are Venus and Henin conserving their energy/best play?
Henin has (well, relatively) easy matches before the QF... Morigami, Olga and Su-Wei Hsieh are players you expect her to beat, while Francesca is a much tougher opponent, but still beatable without going at 80% or more.
As for Venus, her results might seemed a bit concerning (especially Pin, Sania and now Marta), but you do have to remember she also play doubles with her sister. She doesn't need to go up to 5th gear to win her matches, only what is needed to progress.
