Venus def Petko 5-7 6-4 6-4

Match of the century

Venus legend !!

"Until Venus came along, tennis was dead. Venus brought tennis to life. When Serena came along and added more life, tennis became a very popular sport all over again. Until then, tennis had died and went to hell."

Strong finish from Venus!

In a final! So happy! Please get that title, it'd mean so much to her! Who knows when such an opportunity will come again, this would be a great end to her year! Really happy for Venus.

Patchy play though.

Vee will always be a hot mess, should have been 6-3 6-4, she had 2 set points at 5-3 in the first and then lost the next 4 games

Re: Venus def Petko 5-7 6-4 6-4

Petko

but happy she was able to play such a great match

now GO MONICA GO

Niculescu winning a Tournament over Venus and TF would go crazy

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

I don't believe.
Petko should win this. She needs wins.

But great match tbh. Both played great tennis

Re: Venus def Petko 5-7 6-4 6-4

The Luxembourg tournament organizers are getting their money's worth for the Williams appearance fee. It took a lot of ridiculous line calling, but they managed to get it done.

Rule of thumb: When the crowd is laughing at line calls during the points, you know it's getting absolutely ridiculous.
