Exclamation I Kmow It Is Only The First Set, But...

Do any damage to Justine's serve and
Have easy service games on her own serve

Venus Williams
Serena Williams
Vania King, Sloane Stephens
Michael Joseph Jackson|1958-2009|RIP King of Music

Whitney Elizabeth Houston|1963-2012|RIP Queen of Music

Now that she broke, maybe Venus can adjust her forehand and pick up
her service

You shouldn't be so hard on Henin. If she wants to lose, as her fan, you should support her.

I Nadal. Serena Williams. Venus Williams

Like: Haas. Tsonga. Kiefer. Bartoli. Mirza. Zheng. Bolleli. Safina. Mauresmo. Monfils.Jie.


Hate: Djokovic. Lubjicic. Sharapova. Murray. Dementieva. Soderling.

I don't understand why Venus already looked so tired.

She had a battle with Jankovic for over 2 hours and only had 1 days rest. Serena put up less resistance against Justine and Justine has had 2 days rest.

When you believe, somehow you will. You will, when you believe.

Your mind will take you far. The rest is just pure heart. Youíll find your fate is all your own creation.

Thereís so much strength in all of us, every woman, child, and man.
Itís the moment that you think you canít - youíll discover that you CAN.

Re: I Kmow It Is Only The First Set, But...

She was not the only one in that rally.
And it has been sometime since that rally.
Hopefully, this long break will recharge her battery

Re: I Kmow It Is Only The First Set, But...

i wish venus would hit some better approach shots. she did the same thing against jankovic and how she she keep getting passed when every passing shot is aimed down the line. this match should be a repeat of teh serne/henin match if venus is content with playing at this level. she used to up her level for these type of matches but she is playing no differently than her qf match. she also needs to back up on those 1st serve returns and stop hitting 2nd serves into the net on important points and get that 1st serve percentage up.
