Taking game-points isn't one of them.

She does have a nice game and those rowdy chinese sure are making it hard to enjoy the match. :devil:

Ya...right now I would say she is a Monica minus 20% maybe. She can learn to dominate players ranked outside the top 20. Still, has some holes that need to be fixed.

That running forehand does look like Sharapova's.

One thing I noticed is that she seems to be hitting late alot. Venus' pace, maybe?

She needs to learn on her second short right after the serve...although that might be the bad serve plus the Venus return.

She's trains in Florida right, maybe picked up something being
near Capriati perhaps? :lol: That was so obnoxious asking for
that game from the chair umpire! :tape:

She actually had an argument there, but the ump stuck to his guns. It's a judgment call.

if only the court was 3 inches wider and she didn't know what the score was in her head... :haha: hopefully she plays the big points better next set. when she gets a game point on her serve, she needs to put more than one ball in play. my goodness.

she reminds me of monica, maria, and anna k. that's some damn good company in my book.

she needs obvious work on her serve but also with a few minor other things.

i thought for sure they were going to replay the point...
o well, it is a judgment call and it probably didn't make a huge difference because venus DID hit a very good shot, and probably would have won the point even if the linesperson wouldn't have miscalled.

Either the coaching genius that is Oracene has told Venus to hack away at that forehand until it starts to work, or Venus isnt very smart on the court!
How many forehands has she smacked into the net with an open court?
Jeez wouldnt just a smidgen of topspin for clearance be better than going for a screaming error into the net?

True..it's just something interesting. I've never seen a lower
ranked player at a GS say something like that to win the second
game of the 1st set against a star/diva/champ. :tape:

No offense but you don't like the Chinese much, do you ? :)

What do you mean? I live in Singapore? :haha:
I like all types, and I don't need to give any person special
treatments, favours or coddling because of their ethnic race.
It's all about personal merit and ablility.

Everybody's the same to me.

i'm sitting her a little unimpressed.
she could be good one day though, thats for sure.

Peng wasn't arguing she should win the point, she was arguing that the point should be replayed.

I didn't understand why the umpire awarded that point to Venus. Usually, when the umpire overrules a linesman's call, the point is replayed. You couldn't say that Peng had no play on it since she got her raquet on the ball and she was right there.

I don't think it's a big deal in the match, though it did seem unfair.

She'll be a solid fixture in the top 15 by years end.

Peng definitely has the goods off the ground, but she desperately needs a serve, if she had one this match would be much closer!

Peng does have game, but its like she is hit or miss when she gets her first shot.

im not sure about it. her serve is what she needs but also right now, its like she plays hit and miss. no rallies unless venus starts to work her left and right.

peng has a lot of hair, but also a lot of bald spots :eek: nice game though. good win venus. she should have no problem with smashnova. here is a match where venus will get to open up with her power game.

I was not impressed with Peng at all, and I'm really surprised she beat any of the other top twenty players. Nor was I impressed with Venus, for that matter. Peng hit some good shots but I think Venus just didn't press the issue enough.

You are not right for talking about her hair. I knew someone was going to bring it up.:lol:
