Scoreline probably too kind to Chan and Venus. Could have easily been 61 61

Venus was horrible. His biggest weapon, his serve, wasn't working today. Got broken 3 times, that's not going to get it done, especially when his partner, Angel Chan, has a horrible serve too. And then for a doubles specialist, his volleys and reflexes weren't even that good either - especially when compared to what Jamie was doing at the net.

Angel was not good either, just made too many poor errors and her serve as usual was a massive liability. Couldn't handle the pace from Jamie and Beth either :shrug:

They only held serve twice the entire match.

Bethanie and Jamie were by far and away the much, much better player. Serving better, returning was phenomenal. Beth was probably the MVP, some of the shots she played were just stunning. But Jamie, though - some of his reflexes and volleys, as usual :worship:

What a dream run for Bethanie especially considering what happened at Wimbledon a few years ago.

Poor, Chan... Venus was a disaster, always in the wrong part of the court, leaving Chan no chance. Chan, always has a poor serve, but when your partner cannot put a volley away, or go to the right place in the court, what can you do?

Execution. Should have been Latisha/Dodig if not for that embarrassing SF.

Well done to BMS and Murray, Beth was truly amazing, fantastic play throughout the whole tournament. Very deserved one.

Were you watching the same game as me? And the commentators? Yes, they were outplayed, but it was the quality of the returns, especially from Mattek-Sands, which caused most of the problems - NOT being "always in the wrong part of the court." I'll agree with "sometimes in the wrong part of the court," but definitely not "always."

Just how much did you lose in that semi-final? GET OVER IT - Latisha and Dodig weren't good enough in that, and Angel and Venus weren't good enough in this one. Simple.
yea can't get over it as u just knew this is what was gonna happen, oh well.
was also rooting for Sock/Withrow and Grano/Zeballos to win man's db so yea literally none of my faves got to anyhing in this USO.

BMS continues to win Slam after Slam, all after she doped up like the Incredible Hulk and was given nothing but a stern talking to for it. I mean I get not many people care about doubles, but Beth’s egregious TUEs have given her a hall of fame career and millions upon millions of dollars in prize money.

WADA's tough on the Chinese players, like 11 OFCT on Qiang Wang last year. :eek:h:

Sooo happy for Bethanie ! :hearts::hearts::hearts:

I have to say Murray played great. Impressive tennis from him.
Bethanie was so unlucky with injuries, but she never gave up. Respect :)

Michael Venus :hug:

Chan played bad. So many wrong decisions. She looked clueless against Murray.
It did not help Michael at all that Chan began (and most of the match played) so weak.
