Wuhan R1: DR Collins def. (W) V. Williams 7-5 7-6

No thread? The less said about this eye-sore of a match the better.

Collins really won 7-5 6-2 but got screwed by a ridiculous no-call on a clear Venus DF on MP

Despicable result, especially after that comeback from 0-5. Collins is about as likable as herpes. Not even 2019 Venus should lose to this gila monster.

Bitttchhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh You Better Pay It Honey! The Devil Is A Liar!!!!! Bitches Get Interviews And Shit? Where They Do That At Honey? Girls Are Late Honey!!!! The Queen Needs To Get Into It Honey Cause The Girls Is Late Out Here! Yes Honey Im Throwing Epic Shade!

Management!

Collins could have challenged though? In fact there were about 5 different points in the second set alone where she decided to scream at the umpire instead of using her many challenges... I think at 5-0 she had only used one.

Anyway, what a mess of a match. Venus had two set points at *5-4 in the first set but her serve totally left her and she was super flat footed. Got a bit unlucky on her break point opportunities in the next game, and then proceeded to lose *EIGHT* games in a row to go a set and 0-5 down, before saving match points and winning 5 in a row.

After all that valiant fight back she throws away a mini break lead in the tiebreaker with two double faults and loses the match. Frustrating to watch. On to Beijing.

Is Venus capable of playing a match without ridiculous momentum shifts any more, she puts her fans through it more than anyone else.

Well, that was... a match. Based on their previous match, I didn't really expect Venus to win, but this straight sets loss was anything but straightforward.

Ash Barty!!

I’m surprised Vee decided to play here; guess she did win this event a few years ago.

Not sure if Beijing will be more of a success - I wish she’d played the Linz - Luxembourg double instead of here.

Loosing to a fellow American is not good for Venus’ Olympic chances

Venus is assured a doubles Olympics WC as previous winner right?

So she’s going to participate anyway.

very unlike a collins match to have so much drama.

i know danimal isn't that popular among forum members, but i like her , so i apologize for that. she's very watchable, mad but watchable.

Why should USA send her to participate? She hasn't won a thing, even doubles, in ages. OG medal is more important than her legacy.

I admire her passion to keep going and wish she can qualify, but only by her performance. If she wants a spot in doubles, play more doubles matches.

She’s still beaten two top 5 players this year.

Her glory days are over, can't defend the corners of the court anymore vs a top grinder but she’s still relevant at this point in time. If she entered weaker fields like Tashkent for example she would probably still be making SF-F or picking up titles.

Only the defending champion is assured an Olympics WC or reserved spot. So in case of USA that should be Mattek-Sands if I remember correctly.
