I mean, at least she's now 3-12 for her career in YECs. So, yay!
But seriously, did she have to win today? Her win catapulted Venus into the semis, whereas a loss would have put countrywoman Lena D into the semis. Did Sveta take sides? Yeah, based on this quote, I'm thinking no:
“I asked Venus before the game, ‘Will you give me something if I win?”’ Kuznetsova said. “She was like, ‘If you win, it’s good for yourself.’ I say, ‘OK, whatever.”’
Come on, Venus. At least give her an Eleven sponsorship or something.
