No coverage here, so I'm wondering (as I stare at the LiveScore)...
Is Williams injured? Moving badly? She started off really well and now she's about to be in a significant hole

I watched the Williams-Pennetta and it did not appear that Venus was injured. She was moving well enough although she was out of position to handle a lot of Pennetta's volleys. Pennetta doesn't strike me as being aggressive but she is a good, consistent baseline player with patience and control. Venus, I'm afraid, just did not play well in this match. Under different circumstances, Venus should be able to beat a player like Pennetta but she didn't have the drive to play her way into this match.
