The good thing about this match-up is that Venus is not a terrific returner. Sure she will hit return winners here and there but her returning has been far from perfect. As well as that, her 2nd serve is a glaring weakness in her game. There are going to be opportunities in a lot of her service games.
She is a great champion, no doubt. But she certainly has weaknesses that Maria will no doubt be able to exploit.
I hope your right
I want to see a good match but I want to see Maria coming out the winner in straights.
