While I don't think Venus will win 6-0, 6-0, I think she will win in straight sets, something like 6-2, 6-2 or 6-3. She moves better than Mary and serves better than Mary. The only thing Mary has an advantage over Venus is net play.

Although I thought this with her against Petrova, Pierce has only looked impressive this week against non-top players. Venus should take it easily.

I think Mary would be better off with two breadsticks instead of two bagels..... :tape:

Mary is a tough opponent and could cause Vee problems, but if Vee is able to get her serves in and keep her winners and Ue's about even she should be alright

hmm, well Mary has a knack of losing easily to the big name players so hopefully she'll keep up that record against Venus :) Go VEE :bounce: :worship:

Big hittingplayers are the type Venus has been having trouble with. If Mary really opens up and attacks everything, she has a chance her. I think Venus in a close set and an easy set. Like 7-5 6-2. Maybe even 5-7 6-4 6-2

Didn't Mary beat Venus like 6-1 6-2 on fast courts before? I know that was ancient history, but Mary can be effective on this surface.

However Venus looks hungry. I believe she will win, but heaven knows the score

may seems to only be winning matches where she can dominate from the gorund and easily. she doesn't yet seem to be toughing out the matches against top players, and i really don't see her doing it against venus. However, mary is so powerful she can win any match. i go with venus in three or in straights.
(my vote was for three)

Wow seeing how easily people are dismissing Mary , it'd be fun to see her play a competitive match against Venus and we all know of late what happens to her in close matches. :)

Go Mary

That was Serena at IW 2000. Mary's best efforts against Venus are:

W 2-6, 7-6(3) 4-0 ret. at San Diego 1998
W 2-6, 6-2, 6-0 at Moscow 1998

Every other time Venus has won in straights including their last four matchups. Venus seems to be a bad matchup for Mary.

I hope it's Venus.

But everytime we could have a Justine/Venus match up, Justine or Venus failed !!
Let's now hope that both of them win their next match.

well if mary got beaten by a half healthy jen then she will be beaten by venus

Mary, Mary....

One day she plays amazingly well like a top 10 player, the next she is roadkill. If Mary plays her best, she can for sure push Venus to the limit and beat her. If she plays like she did against Jenn, then end.

Venus in straights. Venus and the court are too fast for Leadfoot Mary.

I hope it's Venus.

I'd like to see her defend her title.

Well Venus if she stays healthy. Mary is a power babe but is not as fast on the court as Venus Williams.

Venus has one of the best net games in tennis, I don't think this is an advantage. If anything is an advantage it's Mary's forehand.

i think past results go out the door.
mary has a knack for playing like the player she once was when representing france. i'm not saying she will win but i think she has a chance if venus is a bit off.

mary 6-0, 6-1
