Congrats to Venus who served lights out today to beat Baby E, 46 63 64. Venus gave Ana absolutely no chance to break in the third and unfortunately, Ana played one crap game in the final set, which gave Venus the break she needed. Venus will play Flavia in tomorrow's final. Flava Flav has beaten her three straight times, including just last week in Stuttgart Moscow.
But Baby E can and should walk out of Zurich with her head held high. This was a solid week for her not just because of, or in spite of, her results, but because she finally showed her quality. Today's match was by far the best she's looked since RG, and I would say that it was better than their AO 08 quarterfinal match. They both played well, they both deserved to win, but in the end it was Venus' untouchable serve and Ana's 2 minute mental walkabout that decided the match.
On to Linz where Baby E does not have a particularly easy draw. But if she can get through it will further build her confidence going into Doha.
