It is her confidence. She no longer possesses a Champion's mind. She completely lost her killer instinct. Out of her 5 losses in big matches this year only once she was really comprehensively beaten. By Myskina at RG. In othre four big losses - Raymond, Dementieva, Sprem and Davenport today - the matches were there for the taking - even with her level of the play on particular day, all she had to do is striking at the right time, winning 1-2 crucial points when it mattered. She had setpoints in the first set, she had breakpoints for 6:5 and serving for the match today. She had multiple setpoints against Sprem. She had matchpoint against Dementieva. Venus of 2000-2001 would not let those chances go, though she also used to have bad days and her forehand would also let her down sometimes.
