Venus made her look better than she was and I agree with Long Thing, how shaky she got when Venus raised her level a bit, says a lot.
Did Error-Na infect Venus? It really bothers me a bit when a player keeps missing her 1st serves and some easy shots because she gets nervous. Na li almost pissed me off at the end of the first set today.

Re: Mushroom Na's Golden Flower Paradise Chat Thread vol.3
Couldn't watch Nana this morning, woke up a bit late and then watched VIP vs Empress becoz first stream that would load properly. As for Venus, didn't seem to me she was particularly tense but rather can't be bothered to put too much effort and focus once she was lagging behind. Despite all what she claimed, she knows she's in the twilight of her career and tennis doesn't feel the exactly the same for her anymore.
She's really good. I was really afraid that Na would draw Kimiko in R1.
Yes she is, considering her age. Otherwise, I must say I'm not really impressed by her game although she's fun to watch for her dated technics. Na can beat herself against about anyone so her draw doesn't really matter, at least in the first few rounds.
