Well done Venus.

Just need to keep your concentration in places. Keep moving forward. Round 2 next against either Alize or Marina. Be focused.

DON'T WAVE YOUR HAND AT ME GURLLL!

Slightly more competitive than the scoreline suggests but Venus played so well on nearly all the key points and that forehand drop and passes were other worldly! Great to see.

RIP Elena Baltacha, thank you for dedicating your life to a sport we all love. You'll be missed but never forgotten.

I don't know why so many people picked this for an upset Voskoboeva caused a few upsets in summer 2011-spring 2012, but she's well past that form now, and even if Venus had been off today (which she obviously wasn't), she has to her credit been very good in the past 12 months at pulling matches out against scrubs on her off-days, Wimbledon aside.

Looks like she played well. Make that 3rd round

Great start for Vee.

Glad to see that the R3 clash is likely, I'll look forward to the next round because as impressive as both were, their opponents were also pretty dire.

Has Galina ever done anything after that Toronto/Montreal run?

Yuryevna,
Always

That forehand drop shot in the last game was simply lovely!

Venus and Maria want that match, watch out someone losing by one of these scores.

A huge performance by Vinas. There was one game in the first set and also one in the second where she was facing a couple of BPs, but she denied every single BP with a good first serve. I cannot believe some people here were saying this Voskoboeva would be a threat to Venus!? That was the best scoreline Venus has had in AGES
