You won't believe me if I told you!

Sveta was too tired to play with ASV.
Venus stepped in; but only for 1 set.
Elena finished the 2nd set off with ASV!

Well, Venus had just finished playing a
marathon match with Sveta and still stepped
in for her for atleast a set and then Elena came
into to finish.

Very nice of Venus considering she's the one
who has to play tommorrow.

Also nice of Elena to step in for her.

Actually, it wasn't it was the best they could do.

Especially, with players who werw withdrawing
left and right for whatever the reasons.

I amazed they pulled even this off and
the ladies who went the extra mile for them
I'm sure have their complete admiration and thanks.

Crazy! :lol:

lol what are you talking about? vaidisova was one big mess in that doubles match.

by the way, on an interesting note. from what i got to see, venus hit nicole three times in that match. ofcourse, a doubles player is taught to do that but nicole wasn't amused at all. thought after the first time, venus will be hesitant to hammer the ball towards nicole. venus apologized (maybe she just lost control :shrug:) nicole just turned her back not acknowledging venus' apology at all.arantxa found it funny in some sort. vera flinched when she saw nicole getting hit. on the end of the 1st set which venus and arantxa won, nicole gave venus the coldest handshake i've ever seen.

I saw the match on tv lol...

Very entertaining... ;)

At one point elena came so close to hitting ASV on the head, and let out a scary yelp...:scared:

Elena's serve was looking much MUCH better...

Yes the match turned out to be very hilarious~ ASV was enjoying a lot and even did a lot of funny gestures and chats with the crowd whenever she made an UE or missed an easy shot! ;) Maria stepped out of court before the match of Venus v Sveta announcing her withdrawal from the tournament, and the organisers announced at that moment that Venus was going to play the first set only and Elena to finish off with ASV for the second and if possibly the third as well.

ASV was not playing well - quite a number of easy misses on volleys and DFs, but obviously she was a very late replacement tonight. She was able to win mainly because Nicole Vaidisova was playing even worse - she made about 2 out of 10 volleys only, even though her serve was huge and her groundies were at times thunderous too. Elena and Venus enjoyed the match very much too, and they laughed a lot during their set.

A big clap for Vera Zvonareva, who displayed great sportsmanship and gratitude by agreeing to all these format changes throughout tournament. Yes she played with three different partners in the tournament and I was very impressed with her volleys and groundies. :) I appreciate her attitude a lot! :)

Yes Nicole's face was really dark after being hit at the foot three times and at one point she hit a smash towards Venus on revenge, though Venus was able to save it. I joked with my friend whether they would have confrontation in the locker room! ;)

She wasn't only hit at the foot. She was also hit at the upper part. Anyways, that shall serve as a baptism of fire for her.

LOL, I could see she didn't like Venus hitting her and it seemed as if ASV started laughing and gesturing about Vaidisova cause Vera and Nicole looked at her like she was crazy. On that point Venus didn't put away the first volley that she should have so the second time she took her chance and blasted a volley right into Vaidisova's body. That had to hurt. Most doubles teams learn to move out of the way when the Williams sisters get ready to smash away a volley. Just ask Rennae Stubbs. And Martina Navratilova. :lol:

They actually worked pretty well together though neither of them played their best. One time they ended up on the same side of the court with Venus having to duck so ASV could hit a stroke over her head, they won the point and Venus looked at Arantxa and doubled over with laughter while Arantxa made a gesture over her head to illustrate what happened.
