Venus Flattens Tu, Wants Rematch With Seles.
A relaxed Venus Williams flattened Tu and then said how much she would like to emulate her sister Serena's title victory of 1999.
"It's great to be here, back where Serena won her first tournament. I've never won in Paris so it would be really great to win here," the top seed after a match which lasted just 50 minutes.
The world No. 2 was in nostalgic mode, reminiscing about her sister's victory, on the same day that she won another tournament in Oklahoma City.
"It was a great time in our lives because we were just doing things on the tour, just starting to get big wins and big tournaments. We were starting to make ourselves very good players," she said.
Williams said she had recovered from the assorted leg injuries which hampered her at the Australian Open and was keen to get her own back on Seles, who defeated her in the quarterfinals in Melbourne.
"I'd love to play Monica again. I had some pretty rough circumstances in Australia and I'd like to get another chance," she said.
