Post match quotes: Venus def. Seles

"I was very happy to be able to stay with her,'' Williams said. ``I have a lot of respect for her. She was my favorite player growing up. That's why I started grunting; I wanted to be like Monica.'' - Venus Williams

"It's very tough when you play a person who serves well" - Monica Seles

"She just comes up with the goods and puts the pressure on you with her serve and her movement" - Monica Seles

"She showed everyone she's definitely a force to be reckoned with'' - Venus Williams

i have gained so much respect for venus this week - she seems much more open these days, strange that she seems so happy when her parents are getting divorced - or perhaps that is just a relief for her.

although i also hate her for taking patty out - just kidding - actually the way patty challenged her makes me much happier than if she had just beaten hantuchova or dokic.

OMG! I don't think I've ever heard Venus say she was "Very happy to be able stay with" anyone, ever. I don't recall hearing anyone in the top 10 say something like that.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.
