I wouldn't be too sure. JJ is a bad match up for Venus.

Re: I am really worried about Venus

Venus seems to play better when she has tougher draws. Last year we all expected her to cake walk past Zvonereva and Pironkova into the final and we all know what happened there

Besides, Jankovic is a non-entity on grass. Jankovic is a lot slower than she was in 2006 when she beat Venus, so the advantage of her defensive ability on grass is negated. Venus would have to throw in an absolute shit-fest to lose a set to her.

Re: I am really worried about Venus

She has a great draw. Na, Sharapova, and Serena in the other half. The biggest threat in her half is probably Kvitova who she couldnt play until the semis. Zvonareva is a good opponent for Venus on a faster court. Really an excellent draw to be honest.

Jankovic is well past making any kind of mark on grass. Her win over Venus in 06 was kind of flukish considering Jankovic couldnt ever even beat Myskina at Wimbledon (0-2 or 0-3 I believe). And that was when she was at her best which she is far from now. 06 was the worst year of the Williams on tour as well. Not sure why anyone is worried about that one, even for a rusty Venus.

Re: I am really worried about Venus

I think the people in her draw are worried about her too & I can give you 5 reasons why:

1. 2000
2. 2001
3. 2005
4. 2007
5. 2008

Because we all know Myskina is a bye on grass....

She would play her in the Quarters. And Zvonareva won't be a walkover.
