This match displays the closest we've seen of them near both of their peaks at the same time. Serena came out on top, but she still had to fend off a match point. I think it's safe to say Peak Vee and Peak Rena are more than likely EVENLY MATCHED!
Not so sure if I could call this their 'peak
'. But GREAT
match and great example of their style of play.
However even with this example Serena's clutch-serving, desire to win (mental strength), and return game demonstrated the difference between the two. I suppose it depends on ones perspective though.
Best points of the match:
top-spin lob from Serena at 08:36.
That magnificent volley from Serena at the net @ 11:53.
The athleticism and shot selections starting @13:41, won by Venus.
And the wonderful BH-DTL shot by Serena.
I wonder what people think of Venus' "psychology" in this match?
She even started grunting with maximum effort in the 3rd set.
Nice contribution jrollaneres25.
