Venus is making too many errors at crucial parts of the game. That is why closing out this set is harder than it should be.

Well honestly it doesn't matter because I didn't feel like Venus would win this tournament just like I didn't feel like Maria would. She has too many good players in her path and it's not like she's been playing good on a consistent level this days.

Chanda is playing great attacking Vee's second serve, and coming to the net sucessfully. However, Venus keeps faltering on her serve and she cannot hold. She cannot even serve the first set out. Vee will need to work on that aspect of her game if she want's to win another slam again.

I think much of Venus problem is mental. She needs a big win, to start playing well.

Venus is making way too many errors, but SHE WON ANOTHER TIEBREAK! ;). Anyway, the only thing I am impressed with is her INTENSITY, she's usually not this intense!

I agree. She needs to borrow that Intensity that Serena has. At least it shows, that she wants to continue playing tennis, and hopefully not giving up yet.

Venus is serving only second serves and Chanda is seeing the ball like a grapefruit :(. Venus cannot serve like this against Lindsay should she get past Chanda :(. Pick it up Vee :bounce:.

Yeah it's really unusual for Vee to serve THIS badly. Wow...

Venus seems to do this in every match. I guess it is the style of the dress. If she is so conservative, she should wear a polo shirt.

I think Tracy and Ted commented on it.

Yeah even Tracy, the clueless wonder, noted that she doesn't seem to comfy with her top since she keeps yanking on it.

It is sooooooo mental. She is in an epic battle with herself...She is tensing up everytime she has a chance to win a game...:sad:

What's wrong with Venus... What's wrong with Myskina... What's wrong with Maria... What's wrong with Serena... Good lord, they're all top players! There's nothing wrong! All players go through highs and lows, and these players are just going through the motions. They're all (realistically) top-10 players.

I watched her interview after the uberoi match and she just looked sad throughout it. It was obvious that she didn't have the desire serena or sharapova have. Hopefully something will spark her competiveness again.

She's playing ugly out there. Venus, I can hit forehands better than that.

What I don't understand is why Venus cannot realize that her forehand is a major flaw. If people think it can be fixed, then go get a new coach. I mean, who can we talk to, to let her know that some things need to change. And soon. If you don't want to end up being like Martina Hingis.

Atleast Martina Hingis had a good forehand!

Although, Venus is playing slightly better at the moment.

At least Venus has a decent first serve? What's your point exactly? :lol:

Nothing is wrong with Venus she just had a bad night with her first serve and Chanda was returning the ball very well making a lot of gets. Plus Tracy said that Venus is working very hard on her game because she isn't happy with her standings. I really hope Venus doesn't pay attention to what some of these commentators are saying otherwise it would do a real number on her confidence. No it wasn't always the prettiest match but Venus usually played the big points well keeping her cool when things weren't going her way to close out the match with Chanda.

I couldn't have said it any better. Yes Venus can use some forehand technique help and some motivational help as well-- but I am getting so tired of those who are blaming her for this and that and the other, just because she isn't dominating like she did back in 2001, suggesting she is doing something wrong. With the year she's had, I'm surprised she's playing at all , AND has amassed the 7th best record on the tour for the year.
