But awesome job from Venus, although she really needs to sort out her play in crucial moments (when she has an advantage). These opportunities won't be there against better players.

Bravo Venus!
I'm so pleased she actualy served it out!
It was such a tense match and Venus played a lot with my nerves.

That means crying.
He said to Andrea that Venus is crying on the other side of the net, "she's crying, crying, crying...So you have to fight..."

The forehand CC winner at 3-4 to hold was close, but in. You're right though, the mishit return at 0-30 at 4-4 was clearly wide. The deep backhand that the crowd jeered over couldn't tell based on camera angle.

Doesn't seem like there was that much that made a difference. It was one bad call that she shouldn't have let get to her. One of Vee's aces was called out in the 0-1 game in the 3rd set too and it didn't get to her.

There was only one questionable call, the ball Venus hit was probably out but called good and gave her 0-40, other times Andrea complained without real bases.
Also Venus served one ace and it was called out but luckily she won that point anyway with second serve.

All of them that they showed replays of were in. Although before the replay, they did look out.

I don't think the line calling was a big enough factor to have determined the winner. Venus earned her victory. She fought back impressively whenever she was down, and when she didn't serve well petkovic obviously took advantage. She had many opportunities, but was just outplayed.

Definitely. Especially since most of their German faves flopped early.

Good fight from both Venus and Andrea. Venus's serve has gone AWOL (and is just plain unreliable), and she's grimacing as if she's in pain.

Cannot imagine tomorrow's final. Definitely will be an odd one.

Nice to see Venus back in a final She should have won this something like 6-3 6-4 though There were some nice points in this match to make up for the loose ones.
