Venus loses bad!

(1/9) > >>

I am suprised that Dementieva beat Venus so badly.  Venus said she hit 4-5 errors per game.  Boy, I have been there too!  Anyone know the stats of the match?   Not a good match for Venus.  Disappointing...

Elena Dementieva swept aside defending champion Venus Williams 6-3 6-2 to win Hong Kong's Champions Challenge event.
The Russian, ranked sixth in the world, broke Williams three times in the first set, while losing her service once.

Williams saved three championship points before losing the match at the Victoria Park tennis court.

"It's really a great start to the year no matter whether it's an exhibition or not. I was trying to play my best and I really did it," said Dementieva.

"This will give me all the confidence before the Grand Slams. I was trying so hard to win this tournament."

Williams, 24, was disappointed with her display.

"She played some nice points, but it was mostly me committing unforced errors - four or five errors in each game," she said.

Before the match, organizers auctioned off rackets belonging to the players, raising 115,000 for victims of the tsunami disaster.

MC ill Logic:
Ugh.  Say it isn't so.  Venus, why did you have to make an excuse like your sister???  

Yeah, stop the presses, if you make no unforced errors you'll probably never lose.  Get over it, Williamses.  You two are not unbeatable.

Thye used to completely dictate play, so if the unforced errors creep up I actually feel it is on them.  Of coarse that was when they were playing well and thew competition was not as good.

All I got to say is  BAAAAAAM

Tennis Freak:
Oh well
