Thursday morning brought back the suspended match of the French Open’s Wednesday night session between American Venus Williams and the Czech Republic’s Lucie Safarova. When the match was called due to darkness, Safarova was up one set 77-65.
Safarova continued her aggressive game this morning, a lesser player than Venus would probably have fallen. Venus defended her turf like the pro that she is. She was all over Court Suzanne Lenglen running down Safarova’s shots.
Venus eventually had to save both a break and a match point to finally toss Safarova out of there. She took the final two sets 6-2, 7-5.
Go Venus, Go Venus, Go Venus!!!!
I’m loving these shots that the photographers are getting of Venus in action:
