That was a really nice match
Madison had a really good first set too...something like a 12:3 winner to error ratio

Do yourself proud in the next round, Vee

For Venus, at this stage of her career, to win two matches in one day, and play five sets winning four, against high quality opponents like Keys and Lepchenko, is such a remarkable and impressive achievement all one can really say is "amazing". Big congratulations to her and of course huge respect too.

I guess it will probably be her little sister next, and of course Venus will be a huge underdog in this match considering how Serena has played the last year, but I would absolutely love to see big sis beating little sis tomorrow.

Want to see Vee/Serena semi please

Maybe Venus needs to double up more often
Yep. I agree, best match of the year for Vee after the one against Voskoboeva. Fortunately this time it's not a 1st round match and she is already into the SF

Nice to see Venus going deep in a draw and having a good run.

Madison is impressive in some aspects of her game, but also has a lot to work on, the second serve is pretty woeful, she also seemed to try and attack too many shots, which weren't really for the taking.

AZARENKA, HALEP, BOUCHARD, LISICKI, PUIG, WATSON, ROBSON

Re: Charleston QF: C'est la Vee! - [5] Venus Williams def M. Keys 6-4 6-4

I had a feeling all day that Venus would play better in her 2nd match than in her 1st. It takes her hours to get grooving nowadays, even though her energy level seems high this week. Her back clearly still isn't 100%, but it's such an encouraging sign that she's been able to serve normally (relatively speaking) for 3 matches in a row. Hopefully she's figured out a way to treat/prevent it and can start to put these issues behind her for good. Goodness knows that she doesn't need any more health issues plaguing her.

As for Keys, it's only a matter of time before she establishes herself within the top 50. Her shot selection is still somewhat far too often (particularly off her BH), but that's something that can be fixed with more match play and experience.

Impressive match! Loved the body serve, like 2007 Wimbledon.
