A bit of trouble in the second, went down a break at 1-0 and then at 4-3, but broke back both times. A good test before a marquee 3rd round matchup.

Good luck against Daniela!

Her serving wasn't good. Less that 50% first serves and 6 double faults.

But Venus won :bounce: Good luck in the next round ;)

Well, a good win again, nice to see her closing out these tricky matches in style, breaking to love.

ugly second set.

It didn't appear Venus played to well, including 3 double faults in a row but whatever.

Good luck against Daniela tomorrow. :yeah:

2 3-double fault hiccups in the second did not sit well with me, Vee. Lovedhow you regrouped though! congrats :bounce:

A few too many doubles, but I'm sure she'll clean it up against Danka.

Good match Vee, focus on your serve for the next opponent ,quite tricky but you will win.Good LUCK.

Daniela is one of my favorite players and she will be tricky for Venus. If Vee stays focused and serves well, she should be fine. I hope she can get it done without much trouble.

Go Venus!!

venus won.why does everyone feel the need to criticize her when she wins.damn the girl cant seem to do anything right.here other players went 3 sets and just did scrape by.come on now give vee credit.she lost focus but regrouped.thats the important thing.she won wimbledon,gave fedcup her all,then world team tennis,and now this tournament.thats alot of tennis.so what she went 6-4 in the 2nd set.the point is she didnt let it get to a 3rd

A win is a win she will move on to the next match and try to do better.She always have these hiccups in the early rounds.Hantukova is not a threat to Venus I am sure Serena will tell her how she is playing now.Good luck Vee and keep on keeping on.:kiss:

She always have easy wins against Daniella. Serena is the one who normally gets a little tested with Daniela. I don't know why, it has to do with certain players just giving each sister their own battle.

Like I keep saying, the first rounds is just to be tested and get your kinks out and win. By the time a player gets to the quarters, semi's and final they should have everything worked out.

A win is a win.

Keep up the good work Venus.

It seems like whenever Venus start talking up about her serve, it desert her the next match,

Good win nonetheless.
That serve needs to come back to the level it was in her first match
It makes her overall game so fluid. And she can muster the confidence to go for more on other shots and those will stay in most of the time.

Ahhhhhhhhhh that serve.
Why don't you stay with Venus at all time

She is such a quality player she can serve that badly and still win in straight sets. Amazing. Good for her that she gets a performance like that out of the way against a player not good enough to take advantage. If she does that against Hantuchova then it won't be the cake-walk their record suggests, but I fully expect Venus to raise her game and book a place in the quarterfinals.

How many errors. Is she looking a but tired or fatigued?

serving was poor..but still every time she was broken she broke right back. She was tough today but hopefully against Hantuchova she can up that 1st Serve %.

anna c. served worse and played worse than venus did today and still beat daniela easily in the last two sets. an injured serena with limited movement won a set from her 6-2. venus should win the match against daniela with a similar scoreline. hantuchova will be intimidated and it will show in her tennis. expect the errors to fly off her racquet.

She still won 90% & 75% on first serves. That's impressive and I expect her to pick it up tomorrow. :D

In that case, coach, what are practice sessions for?

So... question.. based on that article from Asia regarding Venus and Reebok at Wimbly.
If the skirt was too big for London, how come we haven't seen her in in yet?
I wonder if she has em but hasn't decided to wear it, or is she just waiting for the US OPen gear?
