I predict Vee 6-1 7-6(6)

I wouldn't be surprise should Nuria wins like 1-6 7-6(6) 6-4

Venus should pull this one out but Nuria has a clay tournament under her belt and she was part of a doubles winning team in Bogota so Nuria confidence will be good.

Ouch! Terrible draw for Nuria, who normally does so well in these smaller claycourt tourneys. On the other hand it is a great opportunity to play someone she wouldn't normally get the chance to.

Venus should win in straights, but you never know. You have Venus travelling half way accross the world, playing here for the first time on her worst surface against Nuria who has been in this part of the world for a week now, has played this loads of times and been a semifinalist before, and on her favourite surface.

Should be comfortable for Venus but I won't be surprised if it gets close.

Re: WWW: #6 s1 Venus Williams USA v #76 Nuria Llagostera Vives ESP Acapulco rd. 1

I had a dream that Vee lost in 3 sets 2-6 6-4 6-2 but I hope that was just a dream

Vee in 2

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.
