Venus This result is as it should be
can anyone tell me what Venus was doing with her 2nd serves today? I couldn't watch the match, but I saw on the scoreboard she had a low 1st serve % yet Dementieva was unable to win most of Venus' 2nd serve points...
Second set was really close. Except that Dementieva double faulted twice to give up the break.
Anyhow, what was Elena yelling about when she missed service return when Venus was serving at *4-3? And what was she yelling about at *3-5 on her serve?
19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.
Despite the two sets having the same scoreline, the first one was actually far more one-sided than the second. Elena just couldn't impose herself - I believe she hit only 1 winner in the opening set? And unfortunately for her the serve once again became ragged at crucial points in the match.
