I don't think Dani played well today. Venus said as much after the match.

Venus had clearly prepared well and her fighting start bothered Daniela, who probably expected the usual stumbling start.

But Dani served really badly at 51% 1st serve, and she made SO many unforced errors . Maybe it was the weight of expectation, with a lot of people predicting an upset, but Daniela wasted an opportunity in this match.

As for Venus. Some blistering first serves - really awesome. But some shocking errors too.

Williams power still dominates.

I don't think it was expectation or a prediction of an upset. She put that all on herself, she honestly believe she could win this time.

I think it's just Venus' game. Venus gets a lot of balls back. Daniela can't hit as many winners, plus she knows that Venus will be hitting more than her. She was just overwhelmed by Venus, not the pressure.

Dani always tries to go for too much. But that is often the play for many who play Venus, they know they will have to hit three or four winners to win the point, so they end of going for too much too soon.

I can't wait to see the match.

VENUS. ANA, TAY TAY. NICOLE. LAURA. KONJUH. MADISON

SERENA. MUGU. VIKA. PETKO. CARO. TIMEA. SVETA. HEATHER. KAIA. TAMIRA. FLAVIA. GEORGI. COCO. LUCIE, SLOANE. PENG. SORANA. ALICIA. JAEDA. CICI. ANETT. DANKA. DONNA. FRANCOISE.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. SHENAY. DINARA. GISELA. SPREM.

Venus makes playing look like such a horrible, joyless chore. i hope she brings more excitement to her decorating business. i can't imagine her clients relating to such a poker-face. Lud!!!!!

Daniela didn't stand a chance today. they both could have played better but Venus is a champion bec she wins no matter how poorly she plays.

next up Agassi!!!!!
