Fantastic win for Venus. Absolutely aced her first real "test."

Now Chakvetadze in the QF. Repeat of Fed Cup please!

Aug 3rd, 2007, 05:19 AM
Never in doubt. Take out Chakvetadze next. Slight lapse in the beginning of the second set. Got broken at 1-2 despite leading 40-0 but broke back and got your game back on track. I guess Hantuchova and Golovin learned something today. They arent in the same league as Venus and Maria. My faves have just bee fulfilling my bagel cravings today.

Good work Venus. That second set was a bit rocky and the first serve percentage and break percentage could've been better but a win is a win.

Keep up the good form! :yeah:
I just hate that you have to beat my other two favs en route. :o

You are playing wonderfully and handing those bagels OUT to these girls!! Go Queen Vee!! :bounce: :bounce: :worship: :worship:

And yes...there is NOTHING close about 6-0, 6-3. You don't get credit for ALMOST winning games or taking them to deuce.

Daniella is a top player and she's been on the tour for quite a while now. Venus should not be rolling over her as if she had just come on tour.

Just like Roger gets broken during his matches, Venus is suppose to get broken during her matches because the field is playing better.

I like it when all of these players are challenged and give the crowd a good game like the men. They pay money to see these players battle it out, especially the top players.

Venus can't play every game without getting broken, but the important thing is that she won.

Daniella should have won more than 3 games considering her ranking and she's a top player.

Tatiana should have won more than 3 games against Maria too. We don't want all easy matches for the players. The fans want a good game and may the best woman win.

Venus still beat her convincingly at Fed Cup and she was damn tired after Wimbledon, while Anna C had plenty of time to rest. Also, Venus loves to attack the serve and Anna C's second serve isn't all that great. I'm just saying Venus is going to be full of confidence and ready to play.

golovin is not a top ten player. you wont see roger get broken by many players not in the top 10 and if roger had a serve like roddicks which is the atp equivalent of venus serve i doubt roger would get broken no matter who he faced. being a top 10 player doesnt mean you should always play other top players closely. besides daniela is only in the top 10 becuase vaidisova have withdrew from a lot of tournaments and her ranking has dropped.

Venus's confidence is growing, and that's an ominous sign for the other players. She's got that swagger back, and I think she is going to make a huge splash at the US Open this year. If Serena gets healthy in time, she'll be right there too. But Venus is dispatching good players with ease. It's incredible to see - and so satisfying because after the French Open people were saying, "Oh she's never going to be a contender again." Well looks like she's proved her doubters wrong, just like Lil' Sis did in Australia! I'm loving it! :hearts:

Are you going to say that after every post or something? :tape:


Like your 'Daniela, how embarrassing line'? Seriously, the only thing that matters here is Venus' win and her continued success and progress. Not your delusions and lies :) So, Congrats Venus on a nice win :clap2:

Dunno about other Vee fans, but Dani has given me no reason to hate on her. After all , she's Vee's bitch http://img515.imageshack.us/img515/7109/funnygo1.gif

Exactly, I cheer for the girl against many players, why would I hate her?:lol:

Most V&S fans hate Daniela.

What do you expect. :shrug:

I don't hate her...I almost feel bad for her cause my two favorites have sent her packing in at least half a dozen slams over the years.

Venus handles Hantuchova at Acura
Wimbledon champ 9-0 against Russian; Sharapova also reaches quarters
Updated: 9:43 p.m. CT Aug 2, 2007
CARLSBAD, Calif. - Venus Williams beat Daniela Hantuchova again Thursday night, eliminating the No. 6 seed from the Acura Classic with a 6-0, 6-3 victory.

Williams, seeded 10th, beat Hantuchova for the ninth time without a loss. The reigning Wimbledon champion, who won this event from 2000-02, moved into the quarterfinals.

Earlier, Maria Kirilenko earned the biggest victory of her career with a 6-2, 3-6, 7-5 win over No. 3 ranked Jelena Jankovic.

Kirilenko’s victory moved five Russian players into Friday’s quarterfinals, including No. 1 seed Maria Sharapova. The defending tournament champion advanced with a 6-0, 6-3 win over No. 13 Tatiana Golovin of France.

“I just played the tougher points well,” Sharapova said. “I thought I did a really good job of concentrating. I thought I played smart. I thought I played aggressive.”

Kirilenko, unseeded and ranked 42nd in the world, needed three match points in the third set to finish off Jankovic, the No. 2 seed. Kirilenko, 20, beat a top-10 player for the just the third time in her career, but this was her first victory against Jankovic.

“I think Maria played really well, one of her best matches,” Jankovic said of Kirilenko. “I was struggling the whole match. I had a cold. I had my chances. The chances were there, but I didn’t do the right thing.”

Kirilenko credited her aggressive play for the victory.

“With (top players), if you play passive, it doesn’t work,” Kirilenko said. “I tried to be more aggressive and it helped me.”

Kirilenko said she had extra motivation to win the match. Her coach promised to buy her a Labrador retriever if she pulled out a victory.

“At the end of the match I started to think about it,” said Kirilenko as she laughed. “I was thinking, ’Match point, and the dog is mine.”’

No. 11 Patty Schnyder won a matchup of Swiss players with a 6-1, 6-7 (4), 6-3 victory over seventh-seeded Martina Hingis in a third-round match.

Schnyder has beaten Hingis in three of five career meetings.

Of the remaining Russians, ninth-seeded Elena Dementieva was the most impressive with a 6-4, 7-5 victory over No. 5 seed Marion Bartoli of France.

Third-seeded Anna Chakvetadze advanced with a 6-4, 6-4 win over Japan’s Ai Sugiyama for her 11th straight victory. No. 4 seed Nadia Petrova was a 6-3, 7-6 (10) winner over Slovenia’s Katarina Srebotnik.

Eighth-seeded Dinara Safina of Russia was beaten by India’s Sania Mirza, 6-1. 6-2. Mirza is coming off a runner-up finish to Chakvetadze on Sunday in the Bank of the West Classic at Stanford.

A change of strategy helped lift Dementieva over Bartoli, a Wimbledon finalist this year. Dementieva decided to vary her hitting tempo in the third-round match.

“I changed up my tactics because I know that she likes to play fast,” Dementieva said. “I hit some drop shots and tried to change the pace.”
Bartoli, who lost to Williams in straight sets at the Wimbledon finals, agreed that Dementieva’s tactics worked.

“You look like you’re in control, but she makes you work for every point,” Bartoli said. “You think you’re on top of her but if you don’t play a quick ball, she’ll push it back at you and put pressure on you.”

Chakvetadze, winner of the last two WTA tournaments and 22 of 24 matches since May, was pushed by Sugiyama. But she overcame Sugiyama, who has beaten four top 10-ranked opponents in 13 tournaments in San Diego.

Wow, you are so mature :rolleyes:

An o.k. win for Venus!
I like Chakvetadze's chances better after seeing the stats of this match. The youngsters on a role and will not be intimidated by Venus. Should be a close match going either way!

Nah, Venus beat Chakvetadze pretty convincingly at Fed Cup 6:1 6:4 while she was very tired just coming of her Wimbledon win while Chakvetadze had more time to rest. This time Chaky has played a lot and Venus should be fresher. The score could be close but it wouldnīt surprise me if Vee serves up another bagel. I donīt the match will be going either way. Chaky doesnīt have anything on Venus if she plays like she can.
