Re: Zurich QF: (3) V. WIlliams Def. F. Schiavone 6-3, 6-3

Venus is looking really tired out there. I'm glad this is her last minor tournament of the year.
Her movement is quite sluggish.

As for her game ...meh.. was too passive and made a lot of UE. That's what mostly kept Schiavone in the match. Schiavone tried to play out of her mind but failed. lol. She tried to go for big shots and hit big winners but most of the time they didn't go in. Which imo was a stupid tactic cuz Venus looked tired, Schiavone should've tried to extend the rallies and just play consistent cuz Venus wasn't going for big shots anyways.

Is she back to no. 8?

ohh and Venus at 4*-3 0-40. 4 big serves to dig herself out of trouble. Haven't seen her do that in awhile.

Glad she made it out of that match before it got too complicated... Please Venus, bring your best to the SF.

Her YEC spot is pretty much guaranteed. If she plays.

right now Jankovic and Pennetta hit their groundstrokes harder than V. I think she needs a bubba-head again. She served well though!

That game where Vee was 0-40 down serving at 4-3 second set was crazy. Just typical of Vee in so many ways

Anyway, onto the semi-finals

Yay! Go Venus. It can't have been too bad with that scoreline against Schiavone, right?

From what I saw Vee was very impressive, 5 terrific serves from 0-40 down at *4-3.

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

ok venus has been playing alot of tennis.now she has to get her rhythm out there.and who knows it could be that time of the month.as a female trust me i know this.anyway good luck.another semi so she is trying her hardest and yes she has to get that fight back in her.so if she struggles it should make her want to work that much harder so that she can find that consistency again.so a hard fought battle is what she needs to show her that she is back in the fight and she can now become the hunter and not the hunted.
