A score repeat!

5 aces, 64 % first serves in, avg of 108 MPH, and the fastest was 119!

Venus played the big points very well today from watching the scoreboard. Every time it go to 30 all or deuce she won the game!

I'm so proud :hearts:. Good luck against Castano Vee :D:D:D:D:D:D:D :bounce:

WOO!!!!!!!!!!! venus. This is thek ind of tennis we want from you. Hopefully she can keep this up in the latter rounds. Dia nyone actually see this match? Was she aggressive, how was her serve, her forehand, her second serve? or did Zuluaga just fold? Again looks like great tennis Venus.

To be a proper Williams fan, you must repeat this exact phrase EVERY TIME Venus wins a ho-hum early round match. :rolleyes:

after Venus got going it was a very clean match, most of the errors came early on, its really a shame Venus and Serena have to play in the qtrs if they get there, i want them both to win this title so much lol.

a few months ago venus would be squeaking out a tuough three setter against this type of player, pardon us if we are eceited., isn't this the same gil that came back agisnt maria only to lose ot narrolwly just last week. Zulkusage can be tricky.

GOOOO Venus. if maria struggled against zuluaga and venus crushed her, seems like the queen is back on form. and judging by the way serena played today, venus has a real shot to beat serena in the QF! wow...miami's amazing already

Good job Venus! :) I hope she can keep up the strong play and defeat Serena in the QF. That would do wonders for her confidence!

Well judging from her performance in Dubai, she definitely can play well when she puts her mind to it. Serena better up her game, because I'm sure both will reach the Qtrs. Maybe that's why Serena was so pissed off on the court today, knowing that Venus is on FIRE and she's 1 match from playing her.

that's good because know i can be pretty certain she would have beaten patty anyway.

would not be a shock if she wins even more easily against castano

I think Serena is a little concerned about playing big sis. She knows that Venus is on the verge of coming back into top form and it is only going to take one big win to boost her confidence.

Will I have to say I was at the Nasdaq Tourament for the early round I and I got to see Venus/serena up close playing it was really nice for me to see both sister in action Venus was great in her 2nd round and the same for serena.............I have to say the Maimi crowd do really love these girls people really scream for them..............and some people I was talking to theta lives in Palm Beach,FL said they got to met both sisters and they told me they are both great girls very loving and caring for each other & their other family members, and that the young kids looks up to them a lot..............and that they are very funny and always willing to give their service when they can, they resident of Maimi really adore these girls, and they said it will be hard for them to choose if they meet in the QTR Finals but most people said people will more likly to cheer for Venus only since venus has not won against Serena in a long time, but quietly they will cheer for serena too..............But in any case they are great to watch they bring a lot to the court and that makes people very interested in them. No matter what critic or other people say about them..................they are amazing girls!! and for me beeing at the tourament was great very hot in maimi (but I was not complaining because I live in Toronto where it is cold right know).......so if both sister meet I will cheer for Venus........(only becuse she has not win against serena for awhile) but still does not matter at least I know 1 of them will reach to the semi final!! and that will be great.........

Well done Queen Venus :kiss:. These are good confident boosting wins. I just pray she stays healthy and remain focused. Too bad if she gets to the Quarteres it's Serena :sad: :sobbing: :sad:. Oh well...you know who I'd be rooting for :p
