Olympics 2r: [7]V.Williams (USA) def. Benesova (CZE) 61 64



Didn't get to see it (Damn CBC) but it looked like she started off great, and level of play went down a TAD in the end... but served it out!

Good luck in 3r vs. Azarenka or Dellaqua!

Go on, Venus!

Great first set, a little patchy in the second, but overall good win.

Love the backhand lob towards the end Venus!
Clean up those double faults, and work on that backhand return..

Re: Olympics 2r: (7)V.Williams def. Benesova 61 64

zomg please play better in your next match Venus. She was like 2/10 today at the end of the 2nd set. That first set minus those 6 straight UE was excellent tennis from Venus w/ some poor UE from Benesova. But that 2nd set . She hit 5 df in 2 service games and hit a bunch of 2nd serves. saved by poor returning and poor UE from Benesova. And then once her serve left her her shots started flying which gave Benesova a solid foothold in the match but Benesova was worse than Venus in terms of UE and she made UE on all the big points.


But at 0-15 54 Venus serving. Benesova hit a smashing return into Venus' forehand corner. Venus barely got to it in time and then hit an amazing lob over Benesova.
and to the people who say Venus can't hit lobs.
