With makeup, photoshop, and airbrushing she is. But then again who isn't.
Venus has won 7 of the last 8 points and seems to be hitting the ball way better. This is her chance at 15-30 to break...
so... she really isn't then?
This is a chance! Can she break her?!
whats the record for consecutive service holds in a major? (wta)
Poor Venus, not able to take her chances.
Nope, she caved on the 10th shriek of that rally.
Dammit, Venus! Stop pretending that Masha's face is in the middle of the net.
LOL the opening was there to break Pova but Venus mucks it up yet again with all those smothered forehands. Ahhhhhhhh....
You're clever ;-)
Looks like two breadsticks now....
I try. To help balance out the overwhelming stupidity that is the "General Pro Discussion" section.
Not you guys who actually watch matches and make statements accordingly, but those idiots who make wild accusations and claims like they know the pros as if they're related or something.
And I'm sorry, I don't care for the way Sharapova carry herself on the court.
You're up a set, up a break already in the 2nd set, you don't need a "COME ON!" after another winner.
Am I allowed to like her for being a good player?
Venus literally has no first serve.
Is Venus officially one of the chumps now, or is it just Pova's loud hooting bothering her too much?
This I don't mind. Being passionate about winning a point signals a respect for the opponent's ability to still be dangerous in the match.
Oh no, I get that. I too would slam the door on my opponents. But if I'm winning by that much already, I wouldn't be vocal about it and rub it in.
Sharapova is so annoying. She was 4-1 already...she is a jerk.
venus should have won that game too, don't know why she doesn't throw in some drop shots instead of all power strokes
Man, Venus is so done its sad to see.
It's not about showing respect for your opponent, it's about being competitive. Alabama killed Notre Dame in the championship game but they were still acting like it was a close game (even to the point of looking disrespectful like MaSha is) all the way to the end.
Venus just can't take her chances....too many errors. sad to see
I don't think so. She's going to have bad days, and she'll have some good ones too, though I think she's going to have her best days in doubles. I continue to pull for her.
Plus, Maria is just playing out of this world tonight. Might have been tight with Serena, too.
OK, I can see that.
In other news, Maria is treating her 5-1 service game like it's 6-6 in the 3rd set of the final.
And what exactly is so great about her? I'll give her mental toughness, but lets not forget on a night when she isn't "on" like tonight she is just as likely to play tennis as ugly as Venus's in this match.
Sharapova has two game plans: hit hard, and then hit harder.
Sharapova broken for once.
So Masha gets broken for the first time in this tournament...hmm
Too little too late, Vee.
In an epic, well-fought game, Venus breaks!
(and is still down 5-2...)
lol that was horrendous shot selection. Why did she swing right through a ball that was so low? It was a straight beam into the bottom of the net.
If only it wasn't too late
And also for inspiring a whole generation of young tennis players to adopt her flawed strokes and forms. It's one thing to have a giant serve and need shoulder surgery down the road, but she didn't. Her forehand puts so much stress on the shoulder. The shoulder can only externally rotate so much.
Also ushering the new condition for the younger players: netphobia.
Then the gamesmanship, not cheating, just gamesmanship.
She should do more of that!
Venus got that break due to errors. She's probably going to hand it right back.
Who's on next?
Is Venus finally coming alive...?
Why couldn't she have played this way from the beginning?
Sharapova will pwn the willams from now on.
Good point. Her strokes look so ugly.
1 more break plz!
WHOA! You can't challenge AFTER you play the ball, and then sees your opponent in position to hit a winner...
Brilliant. Highestlevel from a woman ive ever seen.
Wow, Maria screamed like she just won Wimbledon after finishing off Venus. At least the 2nd set kinda looked like a match there at the end.
She plays kind of an ugly game, but she did give credit to Venus' quality by treating every game of that match so seriously.
Calm down there buddy lol
Oh well, Venus was never gonna win this match playing like..that
Now if only serena would lose as well.
Don't get me wrong, she wins, and you have to respect that. But I feel like she isn't contributing anything in a positive way to the game as a whole.
poor Venus wasn't at her best today and Sharapova playing out of her mind, possibly the best tennis i've ever seen her play. i wish she would have more variety of shots tho instead of just constant ball bashing.
Maybe not the best ever but close, better then serena is playing.
