Thanks Volcana. I just watched the match, so it's interesting looking at the stats.
As you highlight, a big difference was in winners. However, a number of Dani's unforced errors were only just out...and part of the story is simply that Venus covers the court and returns so well: there were shots from Daniela that would probably have been winners against almost anyone else. Daniela actually played more aggressively than the stats suggest.
The way Daniela played should leave her knowing she's not that far from being able to match it with the likes of Venus on equal terms. She can hold her head high and her fans can feel good about her future.
Venus played very well indeed, and was gracious in her on-court interview. I would have liked to have seen Daniela win, of course, so I'm a little sad, but congratulations to Venus for her skill, atheticism and sportsmanship.
