It was a nice match.
Venus was somewhat tested because she had to play long rallies.
If she plays like this against Kuznetsova she'll probably win the title!

She's really cut down on her unforced errors too!

Yea I watched it.
Venus played really well! She hardly made any unforced errors, and her backhand was great.
Her serve could be better, maybe more first serves and more aces?
But if she keeps this up she's one of the top contenders for Roland Garros!

But 30 UEs??
That has to be a wrong stat! She played a very clean match.

But 30 UEs??If the surface is slow enough, the rallies continue until someone misses. The question isn't the number of UEs, in a case like that, but the length of the points.

nice win venus, but again all these threads are not necessary!
This one seemed the longest, so I responded here and am ignoring the others.

It's not really how many "aces" you come up with ...but when you use
them. I've seen matches were only 2 "aces" were used, and they
were on very, very crucial moments.

Hey Glenn,
how did Vera played??
In the beginning she played amazingly well.
But then she made lots of double faults and started crying a bit, I think she lost focus.
At the end she was making too many errors.

Looks by the stats, the match was kind of ugly. Venus only came to the net 8 times. Venus had 30 errors and only 12 winners, but she still only lost 5 games. That shows you how confident and how good Venus is!! Venus is in Vera's head a little bit. Svetelana played really well today with 26 winners and 26 error, but she played an opponent that doesn't have any weapons, and was probably really tired from the Mauresmo match(I think Amelie was injured because it sounds like she had the cat in the bag in the second set!!). Venus had to play a fast, heavy hitting Russian that has a lot more weapons than Francesa. I think Venus will win, but Sveta could give her a good fight. Venus doesn't like to lose to anyone twice in a row. If Venus wins, she should withdraw from Berlin due to fatigue. She has played 3 weeks in a row!!
