No surprise there considering the strong opponents, I highly doubt we'll ever see these two play doubles again.

No comment obviously, didn't see the match.

Venus and Serena both got broken once. WS won the first five games.

Errani and Vinci will be much easier. Who the fuck is making these retarded schedules! The fact that we couldn't watch this match is criminal. Ferrer put on Centre? FUCK A FERRER!!!

Just wondering, were they assigned to play doubles together or was it Kerber and Lisicki's idea to simply play together?

What's up with all the rumors that the Germans hate each other?

USA going for Gold.

Phew. Seemed like it was gonna be a lot easier, up *5-0 in the 1st and then 6-2 2-0* in the 2nd. :o

Errani/Vinci next. Beat them and get into a medal match. :bounce:

I didn't expect Venus and Serena to blow them out in the second set. They are top players and they ought to be able to break both Venus and Serena and make the game competitive. They have been playing all year long, so they ought to produce one set of good tennis.

How did Venus look in the doubles today?

I saw signs of fatigue in the single match this morning.

How could I have forgotten that this is not a two week tournament! Venus has two matches again tomorrow! I'm belatedly angry about Sunday's rain delay :mad:

I think it was just a chance to field another doubles team as both had qualified for singles and the Petkovic/Goerges combo looked unlikely. They didn't do too badly considering they're hardly a proven combo.

Rumours that they don't get along seem to be groundless if the match photos are anything to go by.

Great match for Venus to win given she's Kerber tomorrow. Might give her an edge. In terms of fatigue who knows but she played 4 sets of tennis today so that's pretty much the minimum she had to do to get through.

Hey!

Sorry, this may be random but I just saw that you were at the WS doubles match last night.

How was it? How did the Venus and Serena play? How did Venus deal with Kerber's serve and vice-versa? Any stand-out insights from the match?

Sorry to bombard but there was no coverage anywhere in the world! So your insight is priceless! :wavey:

Hi
Can't give much insight I am afraid as I only saw the first set before heading off to see Heather Watson. The Williams blasted out, with them both hitting great winners to get to 5-0. Kerber/Liskcki had gone 5-0 down to Watson and Robson too so don't think they are good starters! Have to say the dominant players were Serena and Lisicki. It was Lisicki's big shots that got them going in the first set. Venus looked good and was very noisy! She seemed to have good energy. Not having seen them play live before I was struck by Serena's focus, but she was also very sporting, saying 'good shot' several times.
Anyway, couldn't really get much clue as to how Venus/ Kerber will go from the match, except Venus served well and looked fit.
