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

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.
