Re: How well really is Venus playing?
Ana is playing better than Venus so far in this tournament.
she has lost fewer games: 25 to Venus' 34;
she has a more favorable W/UE differential: +2 to -26; and
she has dropped fewer serve games: 10 to 12.
Ana is ranked higher than Venus and playing better, so she should be the favorite. Also, this is a slower surface and should give Ana more time to set up her big forehand.
Still, this match is on Venus Williams' racket. If she doesn't lift her game more, she will experience her first loss against Ana. If she plays at the level she played at Wimbledon and U.S. Open where she beat Ana quite convincingly, game, set and match to Venus.
Let's go Venus. Do this thing!
