I'm watching it right now and I think it is a very entertaining doubles match! Vivi and Paola are comming up with amazing shots, especially their lobs! It's amazing! The two teams deserved to win IMO.

I was thoroughly entertained watching the doubles match. it was worthy of a final. Definately the two best teams I'm surprised the williams women won. They seemed so out of it the first set. but definately a great fight to come back. Venus was amazing last night serving at 88% and those last 4 serves to close out the match. Simply amazing display of focus and determination. Vivi and paola should be proud as well , they fought hard and played extremely well.

Paola lost the second set for that team.

Venus serving at 88%???? I know in doubles you reduce the speed a bit to get your 1st serve in, but the team had an average 1st serve speed of 174 kmph and a high of 201. I just hope the day is near when V can serve powerfully, effectively and consistently around 70%.
