It was UGLY in the end... Venus was tighter than a drum 7 dfs trying to serve it out. Thank goodness Larsson was not in a taking mood

But she won and that's what matters.

It wasn't pretty but a win is a win. Great try from JoLa.

*sends Venus my stack of future medical bills*

All of those wasted MP's and that horrific game to get broken to love at *5-4.... So glad that she eventually closed it out though!

Re: FED CUP: Venus def. Larsson 6-3 7-5 USA 3 - SWE 1

Great fight to pull through.

Really weird to analyse this match. Venus seemed energetic at first and playing well, whilst reigning in the serve out of choice rather than necessity.

Larsson played a better second set, and when it got tight, Venus's back, mentality and energy all seemed to go! So tough to watch her at these moments, when everything is a struggle, seems weird to think that just three years ago at 30 she was still regularly clockin 120+ serves.

She needs to get this back sorted once and for all, because if you take away serve and mental problems, her game is actually in good health. Groundies and movement are still good when on.

JoLa one step forward, one step backwards...

Venus it seemed she felt terribly

Venus clearly did not have a great serving day, there were some issues for sure. But she fought all the way through and clawed her way to victory. Congratulations Venus, so glad you won. This should give her some good confidence going forward.
