Florianopolis SF: Puchkova def (1) V.Williams 4-6 6-4 7-5

Clearly, Venus wasn't herself, but she was fine in the 1st 2 sets. The Indian Wells break will do her a world of good.

I only caught the last few games...how long was Venus' back bothering her? Her serves were so weak and she was walking so slowly between points. She kept it classy and didn't retire though. Puchkova, unlike certain other players and to her credit, didn't have a wild, over-the-top celebration when she won. Niculescu should win the title.

Her serve will never be the same because of this back issue. Ugh. I really wish she'd just take off til Wimbledon to try to get it better.

Looking dead tired right from the beginning. With that back and that serving, what else could you expect? You fought well, Vee, but you need to do something with it because it keeps flaring up all the time.

Congrats to Puchkova, she returns well and has great depth on her strokes. Also, I like how she turns defense into offense so effortlessly. She has a bright future ahead of her if she keeps improving.

Venus was playing like a corpse, especially in that third set.

Venus was just too tired, sadly it doesn't seem like she can play for more than 3-4 days in a row. Her level of play was still there. I mean she didn't make crazy mistakes she just was way too tired.

Venus looked so tired at the end of the match

Puchkova managed to keep the ball in court when serving for the match second time. Congrats for keeping your cool, nice exchange at the net as well.

Well they say women shouldn`t be the president
Cause we go crazy from time to time
Well push my button baby here I come
Yeah look out baby, I`m at high tide
