I am watching her match against pistolesi.
She's playing amazing tennis! Never seen her this good on clay.
Vee is coming to the net all the time and not missing any volleys. Masterpieces one by one!
She just one 3 games on love!

The old "slam winning" Venus is back from what I am seeing. She firing off amazing groundstrokes from both wings, finishing it off with perfect volleys.
She is playing very aggressive.
Like the commentators on British Eurosport said, where she was the hunted in the first months of the season, she now is the hunter again

I'd love to see Venus stats from this match, they must be really impressive! :worship:
Are they on the site somewhere?

She plays extremely well. Especially from the baseline! ;) She doesn't miss at all. :)
She volleys well, but that mostly due to Anna vot getting to the ball in time, thus she can't make some good passing shots!

But Venus plays really really well! :)

It's great then !!!
I really hope she does well at RG, and hope that she's not in Justine's half too (so that we can have a final Justine-Venus after Justine defeats Serena in semis)

After what transpired last year, Justine better pray that Serena has knee problems if they meet up in the RG semis again. I don't think Serena will lose at this matchup.:lol:

Anyways, congrats Vee!! Good luck at the French!

Sorry kiddo's, your wish is not going to happen.

Venus is firing off all cylinders. That is good. Can't wait to see her play. Now that everything has came back to her nicely. She has used these spring months perfectly.

She's on target.

I am so thrilled she is not just back but back to her winning ways. The tour is getting back to normal, the injured are returning, jen seems to have played well, I hope she too regains form on the dirt. We will probably need to be more patient about the belgians and hope for the best. Amelie seems healthy so that is good.
But Yeah, definitely glad to hear vee is playing well.

Congratulations on getting back to the top ten, Venus!!:bounce:

She will no doubt keep moving up to the top 3 or 4 at least!! I knew Venus was too great a player to be down for long - sometimes you just have to have a little patience.;)

"She volleys well, but that mostly due to Anna vot getting to the ball in time, thus she can't make some good passing shots!"

LOL....That's the effect a well placed volley has, it either limits or takes away a shot at a clean pass....

congrats Vee~!
