It is almost impossible to expect decent tennis in these conditions.The power players such as venus, maria and so on are at big risk as with the wind it kills that part of the game.The match venus is palying now is very very dangerous as she is palying a counter puncher who gets every ball back, these conditions will suit her opponent dowm to the ground

exactly what I was thinking right now...
I hope at least Venus will come through because it's so clear who is the better player (just like in the Kuzy-Bammer match) and who's just getting the ball over the net and waiting for some UEs from the opponent.

The conditions are admittedly dreadful for ALL the players.

Williams, residing in windy Florda - gave a masterclass yesterday, hitting the ball hard and early in these conditions.

today, she is up agaist soemone who is getting every ball in the court and venus cannot use her power to get the job done,it is comparable to playing on a slow cly court.It requires a huge amount of patience

Venus is losing... Sharapova dropped a set... Kuznetsova is out... Chakvetadze is out... Ivanovic is out... Jankovic will have a tough match... The draw is wide open for a Li/Radwanska final :drool:

Well this are conditions for smart players (not to offend anyone).
You need to be very patient and focused all the time...
