Venus really blew it last year

Their showing the replay of the Williams sister showdown during the rain delay, and I must say Venus really blew the second set completely. That was just a huge choke on numerous points late in that tiebreak.

I agree, Venus was playing considerably better and Serena was lucky to squeeze through. Venus really did mess it up. Still it was an amazing match!

True. She had 7 set points in one of those sets I believe!

Re: Venus really blew it last year

Re: Venus really blew it last year

Thats the reason Serena has 11 Grandslams and Venus has 7. Serena is stronger mentally.

Re: Venus really blew it last year

Tons of great players have "blown it" against Serena. Henin's match points in Miami 07, Dementieva's match point at Wimbledon, Maria's MPs in the 05 AO, Kuznetsova serving for the match this year in Melbourne... after a while, you have to think it has more to do with Serena than the other player.

Re: Venus really blew it last year

10 set or so points she squandered ? Honestly it's hard to believe. Oh well, Serena had to win the USO last year...

Yeah, and Clijsters can tell you a thing or two about "blowing up" big matches against Serena.

*Venus*Serena*Kuznetsova*Schiavone*Taylor*Bartoli* *A.Bondarenko*Zheng*Duval*Safarova*Kirilenko*

*Federer*Nadal*Djokovic*Tsonga*Murray*Monfils*Gulb is*Young*Wawrinka*Mirnyi*

Re: Venus really blew it last year

I'm just thanful I had recorded the formula one qualifying and could watch something else in the morning, a repeat of those two would have put me off my breakfast!

BepaZvonareva Don't read my reps anymore, very relaxing Lydia Ko , Felicity Jones, Emilia Clarke, Rachel Khoo.

Re: Venus really blew it last year

One of Serena's greatest wins and the best match of last year Vee had 10 SPs throughout, couldn't believe how Serena snatched that second set

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena
