Jelena and Dominika should have been allowed to finish playing I hope it doesn't spoil what otherwise could have been a straightforward match for JJ...

Stupid to stop Jankovic's match with just two games to go most likely, with Cibulkova struggling with an injury.

What the HELL is Venus thinking?

Has she gone loopy?! Why in the world wouldn't she ask to stop play when it's damn near 10 o'clock and dark? The match could have been over for the day, Pennetta would have had all night to think about closing the match out, and it would have been a brand new day for Venus.

Fuck the unforced errors, this shit pisses me off. Just stupid!

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

because with JJ - anything can happen

On the other hand - it was obvious that Venus as going to lose so why prolong it ?

Re: What the HELL is Venus thinking?

I'm surprised you thought Venus WOULD say something. Venus goes with the flow, and worries about her playing and nothing more. I find it respectable that she played on. The SUPERVISOR should have fucking called play.

Agree.

It was stupid of her to continue.

Anyways, best of luck to Venus and Serena in Wimbledon. They have a lot of work to do and hopefully they are ready for it.

She does go with the flow. I remember her Wimbledon match against Sprem in 2004.

I thought she could have changed that about her.

I'm also surprised, but there was!

It was better than those cloudy days in Wimbledon where it looks the sky is about to get dark at midday!

Re: How come Jelena's match got suspended but Venus is still playing???

I found this site that claims sunset for today in Paris is 9:44 PM, which is about the time the match finished. Of course, inside a stadium it would probably be darker than out in a field. I only watched the first set, expecting the match to get called, so I don't know how dark it was inside the stadium. (Remember, as well, that a camera can open up much more than the human eye, so the camera doesn't show very well how dark it is to the human eye.)

A Z-level player would have done it: Venus is a champion and a champion doesn't ask to stop the match.....

Re: How come Jelena's match got suspended but Venus is still playing???

if both players wanna stay out there then they carry on

Flavia obviously didnt wanna go off

all Venus had to do was say we stop to umpire and they would have been told to pack up.

Good luck to my favs

I was just in Paris and I was amazed at how light it was after 9pm at this time of year.
