Championships...

Did any of you doubt Venus's ability to comeback?

How many thought Venus would lose this match?

how many of us actually care? and no i didn't expect her to lose. it's not uncommon to see a random girl take a set off of a seeded player. only to have the seeded player come back and win a tough 2nd, and obliterate in the 3rd.

Well that didn't happen. I actually remember what people on the board were saying at this stage in the match, and most of them were not saying Venus would win and even if she did would be out in one of the next few rounds because she was playing horrendous, when actually Kudryavtseva was playing really really aggressive and had nothing to lose, and was the toughest opponent that any of the top seeds got.

Yeah...I thought she was going to lose. I was here screaming at the TV and coaching her from my living room. I had a tournament, and I was playing scratchy that day as well, so me and Venus...we have a connection!

No, before the match I thought Alla was a streaky player, and would make too many errors to win. I didn't see the match so I don't know if that's what happened.

As a hater I was far more hopeful when Morigami was serving for the match. :p I expected like last year, for Venus to try and hit through Morigami that game and not let her have any control, but she was surprisingly patient and safe.

I was so glad when Venus beat that girl. The way she kept shouting "come on" after EVERY SINGLE BLOODY POINT (why not in Russian?) was incredibly annoying! :o

Williams Sisters lose first sets to "top 200 ranked" players all the time. :lol:

I don't like it, but since Venus won our class action suit, what can we do? :shrug:
