Sure you would. And no doubt you would trash Goerges, Hantuchova and Hradecka too.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol23

I thought this would probably happen.

The reality is that everyone's game has a core which makes it tick. For Monica it's actually her footspeed. But Venus is just as or even faster. Monica relies on being able to defend almost anything, on returning her opponent's would be winners, like she did against Dani, but Venus' big shots can't be defended by any woman.

Monica also relies on making the opponent more erratic than they normally are. But Venus is slightly erratic regardless of whomever she faces- she hits winners and errors without being affected by the opponent unless they are of an elite level.

So Niculescu can't actually bring Venus' level down, like she does against many other players.

Even with the break back I don't expect her to be able to really trouble Venus. Venus doesn't even need her first serve to beat her because Monica has no ability to attack soft serves. The mere fact that she runs even faster than Niculescu is huge. Normally Monica is faster than her opponent. And combined with the fact that, unlike many players, Venus can actually hit shots which Monica can't defend, it seems that the match up is bad for Niculescu. Scoreline in the second may be a bit better but it will probably be a straight sets win unless Venus' health gives her trouble.

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol23

Williams looks like fatigue is kicking in. Especially on her serve. It looks like she's straining just to get the ball over the net,

Re: Live Commentary Thread vol23

I wonder whether Monica's not annoying herself, playing this kind of game over and over and over.

I disagree.Her defense; return, accuracy etc... everything was better yesterday.And she had a game plan and sticked to it;Today it looks like she is not really following any game plan at all.I don't know if it's cause she's playing Venus in a final but it's her most disappointing match of the week for sure.

I don't think it's fatigue at all she hasn't been able to jump into the serve all match and she's doing fine when the rallies are going. It's the high shots which require flexibilty in your back that she's struggling with.
