Re: Dementieva should have beaten Venus but she choked
lol, I kinda agree. Venus looked very weak in the tie-break. Her first serve went down, the power on the ground strokes was starting to go off, and she was starting to look tired.
Instead of seizing the opportunities, she felt the pressure and committed all those silly errors. A double fault, three forehand UE, and one BH UE (that's 5 points out of 7). That's why champions are few and chokers are many on the WTA. (I'm not counting the mp as an UE, even though it arguably is).
Had it gone into a 3rd, Demented would've been the favorite.
