Venus lacks patience on clay

Watching her match now and she lacks patience on the clay, she palys one great game and then one completely awful game.

She is playing against a completely mediocre player with absolutely no confidence at teh moment.I actually beleive venus could be great on clay with a little more patience, compromise and learning to move on a clay court, noty treating it like a hard court as it is not

Re: Venus lacks patience on clay

Can someone just win already? I started watching at *4-3 Chakvetard second set and it's been a complete shitfest so far.
I'm actually rooting for the Chaktard but Venus needs to put this match out of its misery already.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Nothing new
And a last set, cool; I couldn't watch the first one.

Re: Venus lacks patience on clay

O.M.G.

Chaktard + Veetard defeat tennis 6-0 6-7 (whatever the final set score) is.

I think I know what people felt when they watched that 2007 US Open semi. The one with Chak, not Venus.

Venus, after 10 years on the tour, still can't move on clay.
Chaktard's dropshots were disastrous from what I saw. They either landed past the service line or in the net.
Can't fault her for persistence though.

Re: Venus lacks patience on clay

she had a match point after saving two set points and then proceeded to make two horrible unforced errors, this is the second time she had had match points against chazzy and i hope she manages to win this match, last tiem she lost

Re: Venus lacks patience on clay

Chakvetadze is also having good placements and variety on the second set- so she earns this set.

Re: Venus lacks patience on clay

there's always drama in Venus' matches. i always think it's goin 3 sets with Venus (esp. on clay). I never liked Anna C.'s game. sooo annoying. she uses the pace and creates funky shots. but at least she played much better in the 2nd set.

Re: Venus lacks patience on clay

anna is now back like she did in the fist set.
Venus is also not playing very well and its actually anna who is telling the outcome of this match, wether she will fight or just produce errors after errors. Venus level of play is enough to beat her but I'm sure it wont be enough against Safina. She is needs to play better on the next round.
