Good effort from Vera, who won her first match at a major in this tournament.

Vera played very well. I expected nothing less from her. Venus, as I'm delighted won and I'm glad she was tested more this time than before. All effort and time helps out in the long run.

Other than a few good passing shots, I thought her game was kinda flat. She was playing Venus, though. I think she just got rattled.

I'm glad Venus took her time in this match, and did what she needed to do to win. She knew that she could play within herself and still win fairly easily, as long as she upped her level when she needed to. All in all a good match from her :)
