Just back from Queens and the Queen was awesome

Not sure people appreciate how fantastic Venus served tonight. Her average first serve speed was 110 MPH and she got almost 70% in.

I was at the match live, and I have to say I don't think there's any woman on the tour who could have returned those serves effectively except maybe Serena.

Obviously Monica's game is not in a great place right now, but I was soo impressed with Venus. If she can serve like that, she can win the whole enchilada.

I love Mauresmo almost as much I love my favorite Monica, but Amelie will have to step it up several levels to compete well against Venus. She played much better against Clijsters than against Capriati. Even she said in her interview that she couldn't find her legs, she wasn't able to dictate play. If Venus plays like she did today, Amelie won't have a chance on Venus's serve unless she really steps up a huge level.
