Re: anapolis general tennis discussion thread

First set Rezai.

She is serving really well.. I think she barely lost points on serve. The wide serve is particularly effective. With a LOT of power. I don't remember Rezai's serve being this good and hard in the past..

Mental Strength is an underrated ability, it sets champions apart

Re: anapolis general tennis discussion thread

What`s with Venus and completely falling apart in finals lately
First Miami now this
I think this tournament suits Rezai`s game very well but she won`t do anything special at RG imo

Hey Jelena!

Good question about Venus.. she can't buy a first serve. And Rezai is wacking her second.

I actually think nobody who did well in Madrid will do particularly well in RG. Last year the only one who did well in both was Safina, and she was on a tear the whole clay season.

Re: anapolis general tennis discussion thread

well, aravane will be serving to stay in the second set, but she is definitely much better than she used to be.

Re: anapolis general tennis discussion thread

Watching Venus play can be so frustrating. Take the second set Vee!

Re: anapolis general tennis discussion thread

6 SPs wasted...

Venus plays like a pusher when she has SPs.

Rezai is screaming after every point.. I kind of like it!

it was a dramatic game for 5:5 in the second set.

Rezai has a very "Here I am, not deal with it" attitude
