Nice first match from Vee. Seemed to play well after a 3 week long break!

Keep that win streak up, already at 11! :)

The DFs... but at least you broke back when you needed to. Hoping the leg holds up (and if not - do the smart thing Venus.)

Otherwise, GL and on to the next round.

Well done Venus, nice start. :yeah: Keep it up!

And that's fine from Sorana. She was definitely competing and she had her chances in both sets so hopefully she can keep on building up her form and confidence and get back up to where she belongs.

How many DFs?

61% of serves with 6 aces, 5 DFs - with the aces AND the DFs being served up on some of the critical points. :shrug:

Converted half her bps... Vee's return off the first serve wasn't wonderful (9/25 = 36%...) but she killed Cirstea's second serve at least.

Stats are neither brilliant nor horrible, and it's a first round so we'll see. To echo Kishan, no-one can say how she played unless they were in the stands or had coverage (I couldn't find anyway.)Glad she got through in straights. We'll see what happens from here.

ETA: I tell a lie, Vee had more chances to break.

I don't know about the dress right now. Maybe it will grow on me but the bottom looks like that mess Sharapova wears. The jury is still out for me. Its not yellow though so....wait...have we broken the yellow dress curse?

Well maybe it will look nicer on TV. There was a closer up shot posted in her forum and the dress looked nice. But from that shot... Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo OoooOoOoo :sobbing:

Venus is too tall for that dress.... Her hips are not that high up....... It looks better in a closeup..... Its a nice dress, just bad on her figure IMO :( shes still strapped up though..... :(

It's a LOT better than last year's Miami dress. :p

...But I liked last year's dress (especially the colours and how it suited her body so well) - though to be honest I loved it, then I wasn't sure because of the frills - then I liked it again. :help: I think this one is okay. Rich colour that she hasn't worn in a while and a good fit on the bustline. It probably won't go down as one of my favourite Venus outfits (unless she wins big in it perhaps...) But hey, I'll probably change my mind tomorrow.

Her Miami dresses in the last 2 years have been novelty/experimental and for better or worse they certainly have us talking about them. :shrug:

The color is interesting, but the fit below the bustline is wrong.
Clearly Venus likes a short dress, BUT the waistline never seems to sit where it should because of her proportions!
Its all about proportion , things need to sit where they are meant to sit.
Your waistline doesnt begin right under the boobies!

I really expected Sorana to go far in this tournament. I mean she has the talent to be a Top 10 player. I'm sure in the next couple of Grand slams she'll get into the semis at least.

The semis at least? :weirdo: That's a bit ambitious don't you think? In fact it's a bit ambitious for any player not named Serena Williams. :lol:
