Venus was unbeatable this week in Warsaw, at the J&S Cup as she won her second straight title, and her 11th straight match, beating #4 Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-1 6-4.

The victory is sweet for Venus, who became injured at this event last season - an injury that would haunt her through the 2003 season. Venus regained her championship form in Charleston two weeks ago, where she captured her first title of the year.

"My win in Charleston was great for me, but it was so important for me to follow it up this week. I was playing strong and playing better each match,'' Venus said.

Venus started off strong, breaking to go up 2-1. She rolled through the first set, and got up an early break in the second set at 6-1 2-0. Kuznetsova rallied to make it 4-4, but Venus closed out the match in an hour.

"What happened here last year wasn't in my mind,'' Williams said. ``I feel normal now because before, when I wasn't winning, it was very abnormal for me. But of course they were extreme circumstances, and I try not to be too hard on myself for the matches I didn't win earlier this year."

Venus will carry her 11 match win streak into next week's German Open in Berlin.
