Well that was a statement. Venus just sealed her straight set win over Baby Beluga, 64 62. And she looked good doing it. Apparently she was dominating at the net and absolutely crushing Dinara's serve. A win here in Stuttgart would sure make things interesting, don't you think? I mean, if she was crushing Dinara's serve, imagine what she's going to do to JJ (assuming she beats Bepa).
Two of the three semifinal spots have also been booked. Nads took out a seemingly exhausted and listless Na Li, 62 63, and Vika Azarenka but gave Lena D. a Belarusian Beatdown, 76(6) 36 61. 61 in the third, Lena? That's just sorry. A huge win for the teen though! Nads and Vika will face each other tomorrow.
