Williams Too Much for Mauresmo at Diamond Games

By CONSTANT BRAND

ANTWERP, Belgium (Feb. 16) -- Top-seeded Venus Williams advanced to the final of the WTA Diamond Games on Saturday, downing Amelie Mauresmo 7-6 (9-7), 6-0.

Williams will face second-seeded Belgian Justine Henin, who beat a surprisingly strong Patty Schnyder of Switzerland 1-6, 6-3, 6-4 in Sunday's final.

The win was Williams' second over Mauresmo in as many tournaments. The two played a thrilling semifinal at the Gaz de France last weekend in Paris, which Williams won 4-6, 7-6 (7-3), 7-5.

The first set Saturday turned into a grueling volley match, to the delight of the 12,000-capacity crowd at the Antwerp Sportspaleis.

With Williams' strong serves versus Mauresmo's aggressive returns, each point was a duel.

"It was so difficult to play against Amelie, she has improved so much. The first set was so difficult with the service games,'' Williams said.

Eager to put her opponent out of contention, Williams started the second set with some impressive crosscourt shots using the net to score early points.

The winner of Sunday's final will have a chance to earn a diamond-encrusted gold racket worth about $870,000, given to any player who wins this tournament three times in five years.

Go Venus!

She is really working her little tush off! I am so proud of you! Keep it up girlie!

I cheer for Williams x 2, Pierce, Patty, Nastya and Kim

I miss Sandrine, Monica, Iva & Joanette

I miss Pinky and the Brain. I want Anna K back so she and Hingis can get in more cat fights like the old days.

Me either. I call that the Color Purple hairdo. It makes her look like Celie. she wore it like that last year at some Euro tournies. I hated it.

I like Venus' hair when it is red. I think its time for some short red braids or dreds. Now that would be cute on her!

Hope Venus can bring that tropy home one day. About the hair thingy ... I really think V&S should have a hair stylist travelling with them. I mean they are both sooooo stylish with their clothing and attitude, sometimes the hair goes wanting. But I ain't mad
