Had Venus lost her mental edge against Serena?
I finally got to watch the Aussie final on tape and I am beginning to wonder, has Venus lost her mental edge against Serena?
I bet if Venus had one wish, she could replay the last four points of that match. I mean the title was literally in Venus' grasp.
I really enjoyed watching this match. It had the intensity I kept waiting to see. But unless Venus totally dominates a point, she does not seem to know how to get out of trouble against Serena when she is defending a point.
Venus should not feel bad though because most players cannot dominate Serena on a consistent basis.
I think if Venus is going to start winning some of these matches, she needs to be aggresive at every chance she can be. SHe had moments in this final, but it still wasn't enough.
