I watched the match again, and Venus really looked so ackward moving around in the third set. She wasn't covering the court or having as quick feet as she did in the first 2 sets. Then I found this article. It just didn't make sense why Venus wasn't dominate at all in set 3, now it does. By HOWARD FENDRICH, AP Tennis Writer June 3, 2007 AP - May 29, 3:17 pm EDT More Photos PARIS (AP) -- Turns out Venus Williams played the French Open on a bad knee. Williams had her left knee checked out by a doctor when she flew home to the United States after losing in the third round at Roland Garros, her father said Sunday. "Her knee was swollen, and she shouldn't have played here," Richard Williams said after watching his other tennis-playing daughter, Serena, beat Dinara Safina 6-2, 6-3 to reach the French Open quarterfinals. He said he wondered whether something might be wrong with Venus because of some awkward movement during a three-set loss to Jelena Jankovic on Friday. "I didn't learn 'till Venus got home that her knee was actually hurting her," he said, adding that joint has troubled her for years.
