Should Venus be running scared?

Aravane is hitting winners at will, how does anyone prepare against her,the only one I have seen play with so much aggression is serena and we know her by her results. In what frame of mind is venus watchingthis, she had better be!

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Re: Should Venus be running scared?

Rezai is playing well but I think she is playing at a level that is a notch or two down from what we saw of her in Madrid. She was just plain scary there

Re: Should Venus be running scared?

Nadia lost her cool, and the set, because of Rezai cheating. I dont think Venus is as much a headcase.

Re: Should Venus be running scared?

Venus has to use controlled aggression & take time away from Rezai. Plus, she ABSOLUTELY MUST attack Rezai's serve. David Witt scouts players so I'm sure he's watching & Richard will have a game plan too.

With the crowd & Rezai's attitude, it could be a drama fest!

Re: Should Venus be running scared?

R u kidding? Aravane wasnt even playing that well the 1st set. And if Venus doesnt choke set points or a 5-2 lead like Madrid she will be fine.

Re: Should Venus be running scared?

Venus has to move really well and be prepared for those shots. And attack her 2nd serve.

I cannot see the match, but Nadia is still in this match. They are on server in the 2nd set.

If Venus were to play Rezai , Venus need to stays focus, alert and have both her serve and forehand working.
She has been doing tthat so far, and if she continues, she should be ok.

Yes and no.

No, not totally satisfied, because I think she had the goods to go further
