Re: At the US Open I don't want an All Williams Final
Stop making errors and attack the net like she does at Wimbledon and she will have an US Open title.
If Venus really looked at the video of Dementieva and Serena (which she mentioned she was going to do), she would have noticed that Serena is slicing a lot on her backhand side.
She's not as fast on that side compared to her forehand side.
Instead of going after her forehand which is the obvious thing to do after the semis match, go after the backhand with angles, wait for the slice and then come in.
She didn't do it enough.
I hope there is another All Williams final.
Maybe that way I can see if Venus learned her lesson.
But with the way she played today, I could see Venus losing to a Dementieva or Azarenka on a hard court.
