Congrats to you Venus on taking care of business <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> I never really expected her to get a first set bagel. I mean she hasn't played since the US Open. Oh hell who am I kidding this is Venus Williams I am talking about.. duh! <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Oh and better luck next time Patty.

Looks like with VENUS the question for 2002 will be whether she wins 2 or 3 Grand Slam titles. <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" />

Yay <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" /> I'm so happy Venus is back playing again. The fact that she one her first set in over four months with a bagel over Patty Schnyder, just shows that nobody can top Miss V <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> It really seems like she truely does want to do better at the beginning of the year, and definetly if she keeps this up, she'll win more Grand Slams.

Keep it up, V! <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" /> <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" />

Yeah ya'll!

Let's not get overconfident. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

<font size=+1>Tennis-Williams wins through to semi-finals</font>

GOLD COAST, Australia, Jan 3 (Reuters) - World number three Venus Williams faces a possible walkover in Friday's Australian women's hardcourt championships semifinals after a straight sets victory in Thursday's quarter-finals.

The American's scheduled opponent, Russia's world number 39 Nadia Petrova, overcame a shoulder injury to beat fifth-seeded Italian and world number 14 Silvia Farina-Elia 7-6 (7-4) 7-5 in their quarter-final on Thursday.

Petrova battled on bravely after dropping the first three games of the second set and receiving court-side treatment on her injured right shoulder.

Top seed Williams fired off nine aces as she beat Japan's eighth seed Ai Sugiyama 6-2 6-4.

Williams said she had room for improvement, pointing to her nine double faults.

"I don't have to hit the double faults I was hitting today," the U.S. Open and Wimbledon champion said.

"By the time I get to Melbourne (for the Australian Open starting on January 14) I won't be.

"When I'm out there making mistakes, I'm not extremely upset about it. I'm hopefully streamlining for the next match."

Glad for Venus's win, but so sorry to hear Nadia Petrova is injured. Hope she feels well enough to continue play.

Get well, Nadia! Go Venus!
