Well done Vee :yeah: serve was quite patchy today, needs a lot of work for improvement if she goes up against Rena. But a win is a win though so I'm happy :bounce:
Title is hers if she can get past rena possibly.

Vera :hug: great season so far for her, she'll be one to watch out for at IW & Miami.

Mar 7th, 2008, 09:58 AM
Venus :yeah:

What happened at *5-1 though in set one, lost her serve twice in a row!
Better serving in second set it seems. :)

V-MAC
Mar 7th, 2008, 09:58 AM
Well if Vee converted one of her 5 set points in the first set at 5-1 and on one of those 2 match points in the second at 5-2 the scoreline could have been even more impressive ;)

A good win though. Very encouraging after Memphis/Doha performances. Come on Vee :bounce:

was up 5-1 in the first set, had about 3 set points. She has a lot of work to do ahead of her.

Not much for Vera to be discouraged at. Honest effort against a top talent.

I really didn't see Venus winning this with such ease at all. It looks like Venus is finding some form at a good time. She really should beat Serena assuming Serena gets past Nastya R and with that kind of performance she would obviously have a decent shot against Jankovic in the final, although I suspect Venus would be even happier to see the familiar face of Patty Schnyder in the final.

Very well done to Venus. :yeah:
Vera :hug:

Mar 7th, 2008, 10:20 AM
I really didn't think Vee would pull this win off because her poor play recently and the 15 double faults from the last match. Vera was talking some confident smack about this match too. I'm happy Vee made the narrow escape.

Take the Title Venus!!

Vee knew she needed to step up and she did ... A Venus/Jankovic would final would prob be classic.

Belive or not before this match Vera Zvonareva have unbeliveble and perfect 15-0 record in 2nd sets so far in 2008! She started to be "2nd set grandmaster" right after USO/07 (14-2 after USO in 2nd's, only Henin and Ivanovic beat her in 2nd) and nobody on earth can stop Bepa in 2nd set this year (even Masha)... but today she played against player from Venus...

Congrats Venus. Nice win against Zvonareva who reached the Doha finals a few weeks ago. Most people thought Zvonareva would crush Venus but this just goes to show that you can never underestimate a Williams sister in any match no matter what. :)

An All Williams Semifinal looks inevitable now.

Vera's smack talk probably feuled Vee even more, since we all now know Vee has a sort of a mean streak lol(AO doubles match). And a new outfit too, she probvably felt very confident today.

Now that its definite that one of the siters will be in the final, if either one win, that'll be the best gift for my birthday.

Its an extra good one too, considering she doesn't like playing counter-punchers.

Here's what Venus was thinking up 5-1 in the first:

Hmmm...maybe I shouldn't make it so easy, especially since most of these fuckers doubt I'm going to win anyways. Yes...that's what i'll do. I'll give them a heart attack :devil:

Nyways...good win Venus :hearts:. Let's see you lift that trophy babe :bounce: :worship:

Marcell
Mar 7th, 2008, 04:52 PM
You guys and the theory about the new outfit making her play better! Vee said she strung her racket extra tight and she also adjusted better to the altitude. Zvonareva hinted about not adjusting well with the altitude also.

starin
Mar 7th, 2008, 05:14 PM
:worship::worship:

I'm usually pretty hard on Venus but this is a really fantastic win. Vera was in great form coming in to this tournament. Prolly some of the best form behind the top 5 players. And Venus ......well Venus was coming off some pretty damn awful form...losing to a girl ranked 150!!!!

Really one of her best wins since USO '07. :bounce: Great stuff for Venus!

But what's with all these lapses in concentrations....losing SP and BP she used to be the best at that. OH welll somethign to work on.
