Someone told me earlier this week that Venus had said some nice things about Caroline in her Tokyo blog. I wonder if they got along well, and maybe that's why they partnered up to play doubles at this exho. :)

It would be nice if they played more doubles later this year. :D They sure can play well together (they didn't drop a set this exho...although they did choke a bit in the final when they were up 5-2 in the second set) :)

My match was challenging, what can I say? My opponent, Caroline Wozniacki, got a couple of breaks but I got them back, and she got a lot of balls back too. I had to conquer a really good opponent today. She fell and twisted her ankle at one point but she got back up and everything seemed to be fine after that. And she was still tough. What was working for me today was my will to win, to just hit the ball and play every point. As a professional I should be able to do that, right?

So tomorrow I'm playing Caroline Wozniacki, a really good young player who has been working very hard, just like everyone else. I played her in February this year in Memphis, and I just remember being very glad to have won that match. I try not to overanalyze what the next person is going to do, I'm just out there to play my game. I don't worry too hard. Hopefully I'll play my best tomorrow.

Something along those lines lol

Well Caro met Venus many years ago and has always admired her, they've met a few times on court as well so they should know each other pretty well by now :)

Come on venus she can play with any one and still win

And yet the reports are that Venus was the one who seemed disinterested/tired when they choked in the second set :lol:

Venus is fast becoming a leader on tour,mentoring up and comers and advocating for women players.At this point she is showing leadership skills.She successfully advocated for more pay and she is a good role model.I think its a dream for any up and comer to play with Venus!

Agree. Venus has always been a great role model but she is blossoming into a great leader for the future of the WTA Tour. :bounce:
