But Lena's win, coming back from a set down, wasn't as big a shock as Elena and the TTC commentators make it out to be. How many times this year have we seen Venus dominate an opening set, only to lose the next two? She did it against CSN at AO, Dina in Rome, K-Bond in Toronto, and Pavs in Beijing.
So Lena notches a big win for her in the tough Maroon group. She'll play Kuz next. Venus on the other hand will have to take out Serena, who just beat Sveta, to give her any shot of moving into the semis and defending her Championship points.
