Venus Williams lost focus in the finals Venus Williams was so mad when she lost in the finals of Sydney. She lost to a lucky Farina-Elia when at 7-8 in the tiebreak, Silvia's forehand clicked the net and the ball barely rattled over the net to give her the set. Venus lost all concentration from that point on and just gave up. Williams needs some work before next week's big event.
Silvia Farina Elia claimed her 1st title of the season after taking out Venus Williams in two sets 7-6(7) 6-2. This win will make Farina Elia the top seed and the favourite for next weeks Australian Open. This is the 2nd week in a row these two players have made the final and both have claimed a title!!
Farina Elia said 'I was a little lucky on set point but I was the better player through out the match and this has made me very happy about my game and confident about taking that slam next week!'
