After watching the first half of pre-season football, I tuned in to the US Open, probably my favorite tennis tournament. Venus played a Russian girl, Vera Dushevina who almost took her clean out the tournament in two sets. The way Venus was playing making mistake after mistake, I thought she was a goner!
But she flipped the script and just dominated Dushevina as if she were an amateur. It was clear after consecutive aces and wins off the serve that Venus was all in her head.
Venus also has tendinitis in one of her knees. That doesn’t get better over a tournament, only with weeks of rest. Will be interesting to see what happens over the next couple weeks. Regardless I know there is some exciting tennis on the horizon on both the men’s and women’s sides.
