Venus really makes a lot of errors. She is rarely in the positive winner/error ratio.

Anyway I barely got to see Venus's match, because apparently it was more important to show Roddick and Hewitt 3 times each, but from what I saw, she was really smacking the hell out of the ball. It was either winner or error that was deciding the points. She really needs to clean up the errors though.

It's wierd. Venus and Serena's stats are not that different, with I think Venus's a little better. But the press said it was a good win for Venus, but Serena played awful.

serena did play awfully, lots of mishits

venus seemed to have more control over the ball, but she was going for all or nothing instead of working the ball around a little before going for the winner.
