One has to credit Venus: she has not missed much in this set. In first few games yes, but after that, very solid from the baseline. Usually if she is getting beat, she overcooks forehands 3 metres long. Not today...

The best set of the tournament by far (women and men).

Good stream if anyone needs it...I only started watching from the second set onward and I'm glad Venus has the break now but it's all too stressful for me to watch it!!

Venus` serve will win her this match..

People say this about Williamses all the time...I would love to see the statistics, especially for Venus, because I think it's simply not true. She goes for so much pace and half the time she can't prepare for how quickly the return comes back to her...and her second serve is :help:

Date-Krumm holds for 2-2 3rd set after saving 6 break points (1 saved by an ace). :(

Venus was broken for 2-1 3rd set after being up 30-0 on her serve. :(

Of course she CAN, who thinks she will? That's a different question...but I still say 'Aye!' Fight Vee!

IF she comes through, it will be great match-play to help her play her way in to form.

Geez Venus, you are taking longer than Nadal with these first serves.

Venus does hit some great shots, no doubt, but she isn't being too strategic...she is coming in off nothing and then getting passed...she should wait for a better approach shot...that last point at net was great though...volley landed on the line.
