How good must Venus be (def. Sharapova in straights @ Hong Kong)

The exhibition showed that while Maria has improved, she has a long way to go before she beats a Williams, again.

First two words say it all.

Why is it that Williams fans are so threatened by Maria? If they want to beat my girl to win a Slam bring it on!

I saw this match! Maria was not playing good at all ... on the other hand, I was surprised by Venus.

Its an exhibition?so what? its still a match in which it was both Sharapova and Venus' only prep. for AO of course hey were gonna play as well as they could. Dont undermine another persons success just because Sharapova had relatively little last year and 'suddenly' is playing well again. I understand ur high on confidence but really...

Venus was very good that day - Hope she starts showing this form for the rest of the tournament

This is my cool signature

Surely you're not insinuation Maria didn't try to win that match?

I think we've seen over the years Maria's a better competitor than that.

I'd like to imagine that in order to beat me a person would have to play almost perfect tennis. - Venus Williams

Will you give it up already! I can't believe people keep falling for these.

Maria is the in form queen of the courts - she is expect to with this whole thing. Just look at hour she TRASHED the federer of the women's game. Venus has been patchy and that's a compliment.

I hope so, but it's not sure. We will see it against Ana.

@ you thinking the threadstarter is a Williams fan.



Hell, he's over on MTF saying he doesn't even like womens tennis. Could've fooled everyone.

I watched the match, I've never seen her play so well. Every once in a while, a top player gets thrashed and today, that top player was Justine.

It was an exhibition. Usually, people who win the first set win the whole match.
