Venus and Vera analyze Pironkova's game

Whose analysis is more accurate?

Q. This is a player who has now beaten you twice. What is about her and her game that does give you difficulty?

VENUS WILLIAMS: I mean, I don't even really remember anything from last time. I think, you know, one of her biggest strengths is she's pretty quick around the court.

---

Q. What were her strengths when you played her in Moscow?

VERA ZVONAREVA: I think she's all‑over‑the‑court player. You know, it's hard to predict what she's doing on the court. Sometimes she can slice; sometimes she can hit the ball; sometimes she can play slow; sometimes she can play fast. You never know what to expect, so you lose your rhythm. Then you start thinking maybe too much on the court.

Re: Venus and Vera analyze Pironkova's game

Both are right. She's amazingly quick, and she knows how to disrupt tempo.

Re: Venus and Vera analyze Pironkova's game

She has an awesome first serve and backhand - both of them looked first-class today. With that said, I can understand why she is ranked as low as she is, because she just has too many holes in her game - her 2nd serve is very attackable, and that 'chopper' forehand looks terrible at times (it worked reasonably effectively today, but that's because slice is especially effective on grass - I can imagine it would work terribly on hard and clay), and while she's a solid mover, I don't think she's fast enough to play a strong defensive game if her opponent isn't allowing her to dictate with her backhand.
