Beth was absolutely terrible. Completely clueless.

Venus lives to see another day. Should probably beat Rybarikova too.

Not the test that lets me know what Venus is really capable of. That will come in the 4th round if Venus wins her next match. Mattek Sands served horribly and returned serve poorly. She didn't even play an entire game that well. She would play a couple good points and then some bad points.

BUT....A WIN IS A WIN!!! :bounce::worship:

Straight sets and short work of Mattek Sands!! I will take it!!

Venus is a SOULJA!!!! :armed:

So nice to see Venus out there still gutsing out matches even with a 50% leg. Dont see how long this can keep goin though :sad:
Players like a Henin wud jus retire at the injury timeout down 1-2 in the 1st R

Anyone notice how the commentators had Venus beat after the first game of the match?!! They were already talking up Mattek's great chance for the upset. But as the match went on it was CRICKETS!!!!!

Venus played slightly better today but Sands is a low ranked player she is not of high quality. The real test for Venus is "if" she continues to advance to the fourth round.

Venus movement is clearly hampered out there. There were more than a few shots that Venus would normally track down w/ ease but today she just gave up on them.
Mattek tried to play out of her mind but instead made a ton of errors. Going for winners off the 2nd serve return but hitting home runs the majority of the time.

Stats are deceiving, didn't seem like THAT much of a positive W/UE differential, but whatever.

Just glad she won, nothing too spectacular keep it up and she'll make the 4th Round!

dude calm your ass down. they said bethanie sensed that she had a chance for an upset. no one was saying venus was down and out. ESPN commentators can be shitty sometimes but get the fuck over yourself. they never said once that bethanie had it in the bag nor were they talking like she did.

Will when it comes to Maria and ANDY RODDICK,you think she won 11 slams and roddick won 7slams!So I tend to agree with medter01

I'm so nervous about that knee prohibiting her from playing at 100%. She'll probably be able to get by for the next around against Rybarikova. But Round of 16 and onwards could be :sobbing:

Much better from Venus. Taking charge of the rallies earlier, and her serve looked more assured too. Still moving gingerly, but only Venus knows her limits i guess.

As long as Venus can serve and hit big, then there's chances for her at Flushing Meadows.

Bethanie did alll she could, but even Venus at 50% is too much of a foe for the American to handle. Doesn't have the movement or the explosiveness off the ground to test Venus at all. Well,not much.

I don't know what you've been watching but Patrick McEnroe is always on Roddick's jock. With Roddick pushing Fed in that epic Wimbledon match this year, they are already pumping Andy up. And I believe that damn Mary Carillo even picked Andy Roddick this year. I know someone did.

That was Carillo salivating as expected. Thankfully Venus squash her spirits again.:lol: I didn't get the name of the chick who did the interview with Venus but she did a great job. It was so refreshing instead of the bullshit the others do. She called Venus delightful after Venus left with Carillo seated there with nothing to add.:lol:

She positioned better on the court and put pressure on Bethanie to put too much on her serve. She stalked her prey and then killed. Kill Venus, Kill Venus. Kill!

Any who watched the match could clearly see the only indication of a knee problem was the bandage. Venus moved excellent and had the typical "Williams" strategy of coming up with a big serve at the critical time. That is what separates the Sisters from the rest of the crowd. Bethanie played a style which gave her a chance to win. You have to take calculated risks in the right situations. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Today her return was off slightly, Venus served very well and played ton's better than her first round. Still they both had 6 break opportunities, the difference was, Bethanie 1/6, Venus 4/6.
