Go Venus Go....unto... the Final.. and take CHAMPIONSHIP . point.
Vee has had the luck of the draw. Now, she has a lock on it.
ALL other top 20 players were sad,unlucky or lucky losers. Sorry!
I've never seen this before. They all lost and left her to win it ALL.
She defeated Peer last week in Rome on clay and now has a 4-0 h2h.
This semi should be a walk in the park. Please don't walkabout, though!
Let tomorrow see for itself!!
Take it game by game even though it seems a piece of cake.
The goal isn't a point of pizza on Saturday.
It's 620,000 Euros and 1,000 ranking points on Sunday.
A victory here in Madrid would be icing on the cake to her return to the
# 2 WTA singles rankings on Monday.

Go VENUS go! Go Vee go!! Go VENUS go!!!

MBM
May 15th, 2010, 08:50 PM
are they playing no-ad scoring? If not, then the scoeboard points don't tally as in Dulko/Pennetta service game, WS won it 4 points to 3

No-AD, yep.

Fabunny
May 15th, 2010, 08:52 PM
Dulko/Pennetta are the hottest doubles team on the tour in the last couples of months. I would love to see how they fare against Venus and Serena. Too bad we cannot watch this match

andrewbroad
May 15th, 2010, 08:57 PM
All doubles-matches on the WTA Tour now use no-ad scoring, and match-tiebreaks in lieu of third sets.

Fabunny
May 15th, 2010, 09:00 PM
I remember saw a thread saying the WS will be No. 1 with a win, but they won't?

I believe that they will be seeded the #1 team, but tied at #2 ranked players behind Huber. Huber will lose a lot of points at the French, so they have a chance to surpass her there as the #1 ranked

Uranium
May 15th, 2010, 09:01 PM
I remember saw a thread saying the WS will be No. 1 with a win, but they won't?

They'd be 90 points behind Huber.

no. if they win today, they will be #2 and COULD claim the #1 ranking after the F.O.

no. if they win today, they will be #2 and COULD claim the #1 ranking after the F.O.

Most likely. Huber isn't going to make SFs. But just in case she does, QFs at RG pretty much secures #1. If Huber makes final, WS need SFs.

MrSerenaWilliams

Fabunny
May 15th, 2010, 09:26 PM
Even though I'm not watching the match, I can understand Huber's frustrations with the Williams sisters. Imagine that she is the #1 doubles player in the world - plays a regular schedule week in and out. Then here comes Venus and Serena only playing the Grand Slams and they beat you every time, without dropping a set.
That fact must really fuck with her head - no wonder she is trying something new with different partners. I cannot wait to hear the comments when Venus and Serena rise to number 1 in doubles.

Looks like the sisters will be 2 for 2 in 2010. :bounce:

They have been since 2007. Yes, the men started doing it before the women. Yes. They even have this format in Grand Slams, but only for Mixed Doubles, not regular doubles.

Fabunny
May 15th, 2010, 09:27 PM
Why are they using no-ad scoring? Are the men doing this too? Are they trying to kill doubles again?

The men do it too. It makes the matches shorter and encourages top ranked singles players to play doubles

Looks like Dulko/Pennetta are raising the level of their games

edificio
May 15th, 2010, 09:32 PM
I didn't realize that they've been using no-ad scoring (since 2007), only that they had gone to that dumb super tiebreak. Basically, being an old amateur tennis player myself, I don't really like some of these changes (and also, sometimes, I can't figure out the new scoring--I'm dumb, I know). Best 2 of 3 seems better. But a shorter match for V/S today would be best.
