Williams Seeks First Title in Gold Coast
Unseeded Venus faces #2 seeded Maria Sharapova in 1st Round
http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/505/2123venus076.jpg
Venus Williams leaves the practice court at the Mondial Australian Women's Hardcourts in Gold Coast
*
GOLD COAST -- Auckland runner up Venus Williams has arrived in the Gold Coast to compete for the Mondial Australian Women's Hardcourts event.
*
Since she has only played two events, Venus is only ranked 12th in the world and thus is not seeded. Every unseeded player faces a seed in the first round and Venus happened to draw world's #2 Maria Sharapova in the opening round.
*
While it's a tough match for Williams, Sharapova could equally be nervous as Williams upset #1 Anastasia Myskina, #4 Vera Zvonareva and #6 Alicia Molik enroute to the finals of Auckland, where #3 Maria Kirilenko finally stopped her.
*
"It's a tough draw, but every draw seems to be tough on this tour," Venus said after a practice. "Each week you just have to hope your game plan works against the other girls. I'm feeling good about my game after Auckland, but you have to improve each week in order to compete with the best."
*
Williams is scheduled to play her first round match on center court on Wednesday.

Venus Williams reacts to missing a shot in the round of 16 against Maria Sharapova
*
GOLD COAST -- The round of 16 match against Venus Williams and #2 seeded Maria Sharapova lived up to the billing at the Mondial Australian Women's Hardcourts.
*
Coming in, Sharapova was the favorite as the number two seed, but Venus was considered a dangerous floater as she knocked out three sets enroute to the final in Auckland a few weeks ago.
*
The match turned out to be very high quality, with Sharapova producing a 6-4 0-6 7-5 victory over the unseeded Williams.
*
"I have to admit, I'm devastated," Venus said afterwards to the press. "I thought I was playing well enough to beat Maria and go deep into the tournament. She had other ideas."
*
When asked what her next move was, Williams offered, "I'm going to take a break for the rest of the week. I need to regroup and get ready for the next event. My goal is to peak at the Australian Open. I hope this is just a minor set back."
*
Sharapova moves into the quarter finals and should play tomorrow.

Williams Watches Quarter Final
Venus took on Hantuchova's upset over Sharapova
http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/3502/Venus5.jpg
Venus Williams smiles after a long rally during the Daniela Hantuchova and Maria Sharapova quarter final match. Hantuchova won in three sets.
*
GOLD COAST -- After losing in the first round of the Mondial Australian Women's Hardcourts, Venus Williams said she was 'devastated'. Apparently she was upset enough to leave. Instead, she watched the woman who beat her, #2 Maria Sharapova lose her quarter final to unseeded Daniela Hantuchova.
*
"My plan to Sydney wasn't until later today, so I thought I would watch the quarter final," Venus told Pam Shriver from ESPN, as the match was broadcast live. "They are playing at a high quality. It makes me want to get back out there."
*
After the match, in which Hantuchova upset Sharapova 6-2 4-6 6-4 to advance, Williams said, "Hantuchova played well. Maria was playing well this week, especially yesterday. Sometimes its just a matter of one or two things."
*
Venus was expected to fly to Sydney today and start preparing for the tournament next week. "I hope to get further than the first round," she said with a smile.
