Serena Over Venus In Two
Posted by hiphopmama on September 4, 2008
That was easily, without a doubt, the best match I’ve seen between the Williams sisters. Yeah, Wimbledon this year was good, and the quality of play has generally gone up since the early days, but nothing can hold a candle to this one. How often have you seen either of them pump their fists during an all-Williams match? They were both into the match tonight, especially Serena, who somehow managed to hang on and pull out a win.
The match was Venus’ to win from the beginning. She had a total of 10 set points – 2 in the first, 8 in the second – and failed to convert any of them. I’m still unclear on how Serena turned things around in both sets, but she gritted her teeth and gutted it out. It was a fine performance, and a great show to boot. I used to dread watching them play each other, so it’s nice to see some good tennis come out of their match-ups now. Can anyone realistically match them?
p.s. Poor Nadal and Fish. How can they justify having them play so late? If we hadn’t been watching the blowhard Murray’s match so late, maybe they could have gotten to these night matches at a decent time.
