Very nice win :D

Would have been even easier if she did better on her second serve, but good winning % on the first serve :bounce:

Will a player out there be able ONE day to beat the Williams on a constant basis ? I'm just sick of all the Williams dominance...Another all-Williams final will just take my interest away from the sport...

Do not be angry at the W/S they just know what they are doing they are great tennis players. It is the other players who must come up to the competition or go home.

WHAT YOU REALLY MEAN IS: You are sick of the other girls lack of preparation.

Thanks, guys. Correction has been made about first semi. I forgot about that 1/6-1/6 in 2001.

... there's always that other sport.. Men's tennis.

Yes, if Venus had Serena's 2nd serve, she would have won easier than she did.

You can't argue with a straight set win though! :) WIN this thing VENUS WILLIAMS... and I think she will... if Serena let's her, that is. ;)

I believe that today's match is proof positive that Venus steps it up for the level of competition she faces. I mean, she was cranking it today. Top service speed of 124mph. Tops in the tournament for the ladies.

Stay tuned, guys. In about 1 hour, Kim will have a taste of the sisters in doubles. Last test before the real thing? Could be.
