V.Williams vs Martinez: This is NOT a scoring thread

Just commentary during the commercial.

What to watch:

1) Conchi will slice return Venus' serve. That will mena the ball is in the air longer. Which means Venus will have time to come to net if she chooses.

2) Conchi takes a long time between points. Venus is best WHEN she takes a long time between points. But she rushes sometimes. So Conchi's deliberateness could HELP VEnus, if she let's it. Or, Venus could let it throw her off, as Patty did.

3) Conchi's serve. See where Venus is recieving Conchi's FIRST serve after a couple service games. If she's inside the baseline, this will be over quick.

Couldn't you give those comments in live scoring thread?? That'd be appreciated!

Conchi up a break 2-1

Venus can't seem to start a match strong anymore.

Conchi's forehand is stompin' right now. She's taking it down the line to Venus' duece court at will. Watch for Venus to start playing to Conchi's right to take that away.

Conchi up a break 3-2

The match is level right now. By that i mean no player is playing better than the other. But Conchi's got the break, so she can cruise. It's Venus who has to find something Conchi can't defend.

Damn, I didn't know Conchita had such a forehand!! I haven't seen her play that many matches in my life, although I did see her against Justine live last week, but she was definitely not hitting these blistering forehands.

Has Conchita beefed up her forehand again? From about '89 - mid '90s she had one of the biggest forehands on the tour ( only Graf hit harder probably ) but then from about '95 onwards lost her way with it and went for placement and spin more. If she's got it back she could be in big business this season.
