Venus has a bad forehand? a bad second serve?
I have a copy of the 2002 Bank of West Classic final, Venus def. Clijsters 63 63
The commentators are Barry Tompkins and Mary Joe Fernandez.
During the match [keep in mind, Venus has lost the last TWO Slams now, French, Wimby to Serena], Barry says "Venus has improved her second serve so much, it's a weapon on it's own"
--Mary Joe doesn't disagree
Later in the match Mary Joe says "Her [Venus] forehand has improved so much in the last 12 months"
So, Venus' second serve and forehand are her weaknesses...yet, they are crediting her for having these shots?
