Weapons: Huge serve, forehand, great movement on grass
Weaknesses: Health issues, hasn’t played much over the past year
Venus’ game on grass is truly the work of the tennis gods. For as awkward, lanky, and clumsy as she might look on hard courts or clay, she looks equally as graceful and smooth on grass. Her match on Monday is proof of that, driving through Akgul without facing a break point. However, she hasn’t played much over the past year obviously, and does seem to have blip matches where she can’t seem to get the parts moving in harmony, and is a mess tactically. Venus should be able to do well here, but don’t be surprised if she falls earlier than you expected.
