Another Lackluster WTA Final

This is the best Venus 'queen of grass' Williams could do?
After barraging through the draw?

Congrats to Serena on her 11th Slam.

WTA needs best of 5 set finals. At least that way you are guaranteed to watch 3 sets. Holding form for 3 straight sets is harder than for 2 so there's the chance that the finals will be a bit more competitive.

Re: Another Lackluster WTA Final

Hey, Venus is human. We are not perfect. Some days are better than others, and today just wasn't a great day for her. She'll be fine.

I agree. They do need best of 5 set finals, starting in 2010.

Serena - 22 Grand Slam Titles -- 71 Singles Titles -- World Rank: #2 |
Venus - 7 Grand Slam Titles -- 49 Singles Titles -- World Rank: #17 |

LMAO. All Federer will do is block back Andy's serve for three sets and it will be over.

Re: Another Lackluster WTA Final

It wasn't a bad match.
It was very flat, and Serena turned it on and Venus didn't.

I do agree that it was very lackluster, and that all the slam finals this year have been underwhelming

And you base this on what? Did you watch the 04 and 05 finals against Roddick (especially 04)
With the way Roddick is playing he will at least win a set.
But this is not about the men so your point is moot to begin with.

No, it isn't. Once again, you started this thread for the specific purpose of eliciting these types of responses, so deal with it.
