Venus d. Halep 6-3, 6-4

Took it on her 3rd match point!

The match got better as it went on but the serving was not great.

Venus had some luck and her second serve was solid considering her first serve percentage. I'm glad she didn't serve many doubles.

Serena Williams

Re: Rome Rnd 1: Venus d. Halep 63 64

Not a good performance at all, but oh well she won. I feel like she has the right tactics though, if she can get her serve percentage higher than the 1st set embarassment the rest of her game will flow. Seems to have no rhythm on service and return, seriously wondered if she'd been practicing at all. Still a win, and an improvement from last week.

Interesting to see now if she can take a set of Makarova. If she serves better, maybe.
