I mean she's sending those first serves back with interest. Wow...I'm impressed. This girl came to play and is really taking it to Venus. This first set is key. If Marta can take it, Venus could be in some trouble.

I'm surprised that someone with a great game like Marta could be ranked so low/had to play qualifying.

Well it appears as though Marta will be one to watch in 2008. They talked about how she was really doing well before, then slid down, but that she is now trying to regroup and show the talent she initially did.

I'm impressed but Venus has figured her out now. She's two points from losing the first set and her chances of doing anything go down DRASTICALLY after that. Still, good showing for the Pole.

Can we safely say that Marta is beating herself? :)

Venus took the first set and the reason being is that Marta started fash and kind of shook Venus up, but Venus didn't crack and Marta's level dropped.

Well, Venus stayed calm, dug her teeth in, and took control of the first set. She always shows such little emotion in her games, but you can tell by her reaction at the end of the first set that she wants it and has lots of emotion.

She sure is returning well. Meanwhile Venus is cool , calm and collected as usual :lol:

I agree.. she definitely doesn't like what her ranking is.

Yes and Venus is doing her part too.

its so fucking anonoying when a player screws things up so much for herself. :rolleyes: Domachowska was ahead 2 times and gave it away within 2 minutes on her own serve both times. Venus played a REALLY REALLY bad set and she still won 6-4. Venus can't play worse then she did in this set so she'll close it out easily now.

I wouldn't be so sure about that, but if she can get up a break of serve, she'll be on her way.

The first set from Venus was not great, but it wasn't really, really bad either :rolleyes:

Venus doesn't have the best placement ever except on the slice deuce court. The rest of them are just horrible. When she serves into the body that is her trying to go down the T most of the time. Her ball toss is so far right so that even her down the T is slicing inward a little.

Yeah, she's dealing with the speed though. I'd rather hit a 105 on the line than a 115 just in the box.

FINALLY, one of those net cords becomes lucky for Venus and throws off Marta's timing.

How the FUCK was the first set bad for Venus? She had so few errors and this girl played great. God you people are stupid!

Doing her part? That's a mild way of putting it. You would think that by now Venus would have worked out her kinks and be match ready but no, she has a qualifier running her all around the court. Vee looks like the qualifier instead.

Venus has a shitty serve (in terms of direction), always has. I always believed in Marta. I still do. I hope she learned her lesson from messing around with her coach.

Her mother :) Had a lot of control over Marta and I think Marta has finally broken away from that control.

Venus didn't play too well the first set but the big points she stepped up as usual. Marta is very good but that serve isn't going to cut it against Venus.;)

yeah... They are...the Haters see qualifier and go crazy even though shes not playing like one

And the obsessed expect Venus to slaughter anyone she steps on court with... and if she doesnt.... shes playing "******"

exactly, no doubt venus will close this. It's gonna be interesting versus ivanovic though. To my oppinion ivanovic didn't play well too and i would have said venus would routine her but seeing this im doubting again... Hopefully it's gonna be an interesting match.:)

Thanks. :) I wish my commentators would spill dirt like the others. They seem to not know anything about the players' backgrounds at all. Research people.

YEs I am very annoyed with her DFs and wide/long errors now. :rolleyes: Very annoyed.

I like how you're in venus' mind and know where she wants to serve it everytime....:rolleyes:

I think the difference is the confidence level. Regardless of how much people talk about Ana's great form she still freezes during the big moments. I like her very much and think she has a great future but it might take her a while to get over the grand slam jitters. Today in the second set proved to me that she isn't necessarily ready to take out the big guns here.

On the other hand Venus always believes she can win regardless if she's not playing well. Venus' is very unpredictable. She can come out and totally dominate her opponent or struggle throughout the match. That's why I feel the outcome of their encounter will depend on what Venus shows up.

It should be an interesting match-up. Of course I'm rooting for V.:)

Is Venus going to have to have ANOTHER easy straight setter against Ivanovic? I love how everytime they play, everybody's like "ooh this match should be interesting! This will be a big test for Venus!" and she ends up winning easily.

well tbh venus needs to take some serving tips from rena or nicole....her serves tend not to be placed well and can become predictable, especially the second serve...so no matter how hard or fast it is, if you know where its going you've got a great chance at returning
