From the stats, looks like a relatively poor match on both sides, with the big difference being that Venus won most of the points where her first serve went in, and Justine won less than half on her own.

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

Venus played crap in the first set but raised the level of her game in the second

in the first she made 18 errors, in the second 12, which isnt too bad.

Those DF and only 39% Second serve winning percent bothers me though

The 7 aces and 197 KMPH dont though

Go Venus

Wow, congrats to Venus, 4 straight gs finals is no mean feat. (I reserve judgment on whether I hope she wins it till I know who she'd playing!). Bad luck Justine but she had a good run.

Justine's serve was a joke

Venus played relatively well, strong serves and the backhand was formidable. The forehand is STILL a weakness that can be exploited by Serena as is the second serve. I don't think she can beat Serena if they meet in the final.

Anyway, good luck in the finals Venus

Well it wasn't good but don't forget that Justine always has to take risks on her serve to get pressure on the opponent. She doesn't have that much power to create the pressure in rally's

Yeah bad luck Justine, she'll come off well from this tournament I think. Semi-finals at Wimbledon and now Australia, cemented herself as a top 5 player for sure.

She hit some really good slice backhands which made it really hard for the incoming volleyer, it's a weapon she should try developing on.
