Venus was killing the ball. Pretty good, especially when you consider the conditions the match was played in.

Good luck in the next round. :hug:

Match was pretty good at the beginning, great hitting from both, especially considering the conditions, while the end wasn't so great.

Karin work on that goddamn second serve :o It was a) going into the net or b) getting eaten

Venus!

:eek:

Played so well....
Dealt with the conditions like a pro!...beautiful timing!

Great forehand...nice footwork!

Second serve .... ferocious at times!
Serve all together very solid!
Solid match VEE:woohoo:

Knapp :p


Venus needs to develop her net play..not that it wasn't good it is that it will be a big factor in her next matches!
No Oracene there :sad:

Were the serving stats because of the wind? Last time I looked, she had 10 BP's. If she can keep a steady serve, she should be able to win this.

after the first set it was 16 winners to 8 errors from queen vee
in the end it was positive also, right? didn't get to see the stats.

Second serve through the match was good
attacked it and only 3 double faults

Knapp 8 DF's (1 per service game)
And 2/10 on break points.
:help:

Feb 20th, 2008, 07:42 PM
Serving was good! ... 2DFs .. well at least an ace preceded it!

did i watch the same match as everyone else? she was ok but some of the misses weren't because of the wind, and her net play was dodgy at times. knapp serve was aweful i think she hit 7 dfs and hit alot of 2nd serves short.

the win is the most important thing for venus and the wind was horrible today, but plenty to work on if she wants to lift the trophy at the weekend.

Good start for Venus! :worship:
A few problems after an early break in both sets, but she was never in danger. ;)
Her movement wasnīt great, but the conditions outside were difficult...stupid wind :o
There were too many UE in a few games but thatīs normal....:lol:

Feb 20th, 2008, 07:46 PM
She handled the wind very well!

Second only to Ana today!

You think maybe Anna could give her some lessons? Yano, since she is free for the rest of the week? :confused: :lol:

and i thought this thread was about venus, but if you wanna discuss chakvetadze then ok, or you could get a life but i doubt the later will ever happen. :wavey:

ok why does me being a fan of chakvetadze have anything to do with how i thought venus played? im basing venus's performance on the standard shes capable of, and the standard she would want to be at. she will be happy with the win today, but will know that performance will not be good enough later on in the tournament!

obviously because im a fan of chakvetadze i can only comment on other players performances when anna wins :confused:
