wow - what a spectacular win - it meas that Maggie has now beaten her on both their previous indoor matches - having won in Nice last year... way to go...

Did anyone actually see the match? was Venus bad? Did Maggie play out of her skin? tell all...

Wowwww, shock win!!!! :eek: :eek: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :bounce: :)

Oct 3rd, 2002, 11:46 AM
Well, great win, but not entirely unexpected, is it? Maggie is such a great indoors player, certainly top10 in that surface and Venus is not in top form.

Congrats Maggie!!! :D:D:D

Now go on to win the whole thing! ;)

Magz is a good indoor player, thats twice on carpet now:)

Hope Anna can win the title now:)

This is Vee' first early loss since the French fiasco, it will be interesting to see how she assesses her game and how she bounces back. It is only her second loss this year to a player outside of the top ten. All of Mags wins have come on carpet. On hardcourts, she barely manages a few games, but on carpet...she gives Vee fits. No wonder Vee usually stays home this time of year :)

Congrats Maggie...juicy bonus points.

Oct 3rd, 2002, 12:01 PM
allegra...thats three wins on carpet for Maggie...the first came a very long time ago. Now maggie has a winning record against Venus.

Nice win for maggie, seems like she can do what the number three in the world cannot.

Venus its time to go home and practice please or at least rest up take a vacation then go practice practice practice.

You almost had it in the tie break, nice work though.

I'm not THAT shocked - Maggie's a tough cookie indoors.

Personally, I was hoping for a Venus/Momo rematch, but congrats to Maggie! Bien joue! (I think ;))

Maleeva Upsets Venus At Kremlin Cup

By Richard Pagliaro

Magdalena Maleeva spends her spare time reading books on astronomy. The 27-year-old Bulgarian didn't have to consult the stars to create a total eclipse of Venus today. Playing with poise and purpose, Maleeva toppled top-seeded Venus Williams 2-6, 6-1, 7-6 (7-3) in a second-round triumph at the Kremlin Cup in Moscow.

It was Williams' first match since she suffered a 6-4, 6-3 setback to younger sister Serena in the final of the U.S. Open last month. Playing in Moscow for the first time since 1997, Williams lacked her standard sharpness and succumbed to Maleeva's consistency and her own sloppy play in committing eight double faults and 45 unforced errors.

"I didn't play for a few weeks and I'm really tired," Williams said. "She played really well at the right points and I made a lot of mistakes. I wasn't my best playing against her. It was really difficult."

Cruising capably through the first set, Williams appeared to be in complete command of the match when she suddenly lost the range on her serve in the second set. Pulling her serving arm close to her body rather than extending up and out toward the ball, several of Williams serves found the net as she was broken twice in surrendering the second set in 23 minutes.

The players exchanged breaks in the decisive set then held into the tiebreak, which Maleeva won, 7-3.

The unseeded Maleeva was unfazed by the prospect of facing the two-time U.S. Open champion and carried the confidence of her past success against Williams — the pair split their four previous meetings — into the match.

"Statistics are not that important, but I knew I could beat her," Maleeva said. "I have beaten her before and I knew I have a chance against her if I played well. I also knew that she didn't play for some time and that the first match is always difficult."

The 23rd-ranked Maleeva meets France's Nathalie Dechy in the quarterfinals. Dechy continued her dominance of Meghann Shaughnessy with a 6-3, 6-3 victory over the American in her second-round match.

Congrats Maggie!! The second time she beat Venus indoor. Well done!!

Oct 3rd, 2002, 07:42 PM
Having been a Maggie fan since 1990 (:eek: ) I can really take some delight in knowing she had a great time in Moscow today. She works really hard and historically sizzles on the carpet, so this is well-fought :) :)

Oct 3rd, 2002, 09:57 PM
Congrats Maleeva! I kinda knew you'd have a chance.

Oct 3rd, 2002, 10:15 PM

She played really solidly, and that did the trick.
