Re: Venus is getting her ranking up in Tokyo: with a 209 kmh serve into the SF!
Yet another disgusting display in a tiebreak. The worst tiebreak player ever. Great week, but she had way too many chances to have lost that match. Dreadful returning in Petra's last 2 service games. And in the entire 2nd and 3rd sets, she massively struggled with the slice out wide on AD side. Could hardly put that return in the court.
From that first point on in that TB, the end result was NID.
