Re: Venus Williams d. Anna Chakvetadze 7-6(1) 6-3

pretty good match, both ended up with a +6 winner to error ratio. huge difference was venus's serve, its a huge weapon whereas chaks can be a major problem. venus said after the match that anna played well, and there was full respect from venus out there on taking on anna (prehaps even more than against jj as she seemed like she didn't respect or rate jj whatso ever). anna hit 2 just beautiful slice and one brilliant half volley drop shot winner. venus was very good at net.

now let me just go over the chak serve, ok i can deal with her going for 100% on every 1st serve because she hit 5 aces, but its so counterproductive as its low % and her second serve has just no spin on it at all. infact i'd go as far as to say chaks 2nd serve is one of the worst in the top 20. off the ground anna and venus were very evenly matched but chak was always behind because of the 2nd serve.

as for venus fans that will claim venus played bad, shut up i've seen venus play a million times worse than that and venus returned very well today and also served very well.

Some of Venus's play in the first set was so apathetic. Better in the second though.

one of those serve returns in the 1st game of the second set where Chaks hit a slice serve out wide was amazing!!

I don't think Venus played badly at all, but I wasn't particularly impressed either.

She played well at times and missed easy shots at other times. But I don't think she was overly negative.
