Who regrets Lena D not winning the SF now: Venus or Lena D?

So, is Dementieva really hurting from this missed opportunity of playing an injured Venus in the final, or is Venus upset that Dementieva couldn't convert mp to guarantee her a 6th Wimbledon title?

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.

I think Lena D missed her opportunity. She's really becoming a consistent grass court player and would probably have beat Venus who was off her game today.

Elena Dementieva
Li Na
Lucie Safarova
Petra Kvitova

Without a doubt Venus for sure. There is no way Lena could have defeated Venus.

Was Venus injured?

But was Venus off because she was off, or because of the situation? GS finals are GS finals; you can't say so-and-so would have won because they played better in some other match; it all changes once you get to this stage; look at V; brilliant for three rounds, dreadful for the most important one.

But yes - I wish it had been a Lena-Venus final.

Halep Venus
Muguruza
Kerber
Safarova Bertens

My commentators (Vijay Amritraj and Louise Fleming) were saying that she was injured, in reference to her taped up knee, to explain her poor play.

Well I bet Vee would have played well against someone else, but yes I was totally thinking that.

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

She's had that tape since her 2R match and it hasn't affected her. Must be some other reason she didn't play well then.

Re: Who regrets Lena D not winning the SF now: Venus or Lena D?

venus against serena is not the same fighter she is against any one else
venus would have whipped elena as always

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.

If it was Elena vs Venus in the final I dont think Papa Richard would told Venus to play bad like he did today.

You're probably right, since it was just an assumption from them at best.

Re: Who regrets Lena D not winning the SF now: Venus or Lena D?

Are you out of your rabbit mind? If anything maybe some people might wish the Serena / Dementieva match was the final since it was so exciting. But HELL NO- do I wish anyone else on the planet won todays match.

Not only did the right person winn Wimbledon today, but the best player in the world now has ELEVEN SLAMS!!! I'm glad Serena was given the opportunity to remind everyone, once again, why she's the best!!!

To imagine trading this feeling in for the chance of seeing Dementieva in the final is downright laughable!!! This is the most hilarious thread of all time, thanks for the laugh!!

STEFWHIT'S HALL OF FAME
Greatest Singles Player of All Time: Steffi Graf
Simply the BEST: Serena Williams [Proud MEMBER OF RENA'S ARMY]
The REAL GOAT Rafael Nadal
Future Inductees: Clijsters, C.Evert, A.Agassi, A.Berasategui, N. Zvereva, I.Majoli, M.Safin, Li Na, VIKA, and Del Potro

I agree a lot of it had to do with the fact that she was playing Serena, but Lena D in the semifinal was matching Serena's strokes, serve, and almost matching her mental fortitude. Basically I'm saying Venus wouldn't be playing the same Lena D she's beaten 8 times.

Elena Dementieva
Li Na
Lucie Safarova
Petra Kvitova
