I initially felt that Anna's comments were reasonable, until I learned a bit more about the match.
This was Anna's second match in Antwerp, and Venus's first. Venus was not accustomed to the surface and she needed to calibrate her game. That largely explains why Venus wasn't able to finish Anna off quicker.
Anna in no way held her own against Venus. Had she even gotten two games in the second set, I would agree with her. No one holds her own and gives away a bagel. Sorry, that's just the way it is.
