Venus beat Serena for this?

At least Serena would have made this a little more competetive!

Fire against Serena, but none against Maria.

Venus' problem in this match are her UE's and not forcing a break point on Maria's serve. Honestly, I don't think she is playing all that bad. She fought off a match point so far.

She lost 6-4, 6-3

But she had a great tournament.

I will be rooting for Kim or Amelie to win the title, though.

i agree and same here. i don't like momo, but i'd root for her over maria. judging by the way maria played she would have beat serena too (although in three sets). maria was just on fire. she's really good. if she stopped screeching and being so hyped up, then maybe i could deal with her a little more.

you people are a joke...
maria beat venus because she's better than venus even when venus is playing well. you can't expect that all to change just because she gets one win over serena. she's got things to work on beyond that one matchup.

maria is just too good.

Serena wasnt good enough to be in the SF. hate to say it, but it's true. she was playing poor all tournament. both of them need to hit the practice court. im not worried, just wait...

Her fans (particulary on this board) and father make her hard to like too.

However, I don't think she would have beaten Serena, espcially based on that last game.

I don't like to admit it, but that's about how I see it as well. That just makes Venus' win over Serena harder to stomach because we all know that Serena vs. Maria would have been a different match entirely. I'm not saying Serena would have definietely won, I just think it would have been a more closely contested match. Venus is on her way back to the top and has been looking better lately, but she still has a ways to go.

Congrats to Maria- and she better thank the stars that Venus made her route a little easier...

wait, you're saying maria has control over her hype??? and then you say she's good (and will therefore win) yet you think her hype will just go away even if she wanted it to? :retard:

Another lizchris's prediction went down in flames today. At least she has learnt not to make predictions for the final. Well, maybe they will come later.

you realize that that makes no sense at all, don't you? i realize it's a different matchup altogether.... but
venus beat serena primarily with consistency and aggression, and serena was spraying the ball. then venus plays a great match against maria, and maria beats her in straight sets. there's hardly any logic at all to suggest serena would have done any better against maria. not today.
