    Woo-hoo! Would have been heartbreaking if she'd lost that.

    The Serena-Dementieva match a couple of years back was pretty good. This was incredible though, in terms of the twists and turns, and the feel-good story of a 40-year old giving a five-time Champion everything she could handle. Her game is such a throwback.

    Key point set I reckon. Purely from a set perspective it was amazing.

    I was saying the same thing about the Federer vs. Novak 1st set in this year's French semi. Sometimes one set can just have everything.

    Fourth set was better in the Federer-Novak match from a quality point of view IMO. In the final, the first set was pretty much decisive (from Federer's side, not Nadal's).

    Yeah that was awesome as well, but the hitting wasn't as clean.

    Early break for Venus in the third. I hope Kimiko has another fightback in her.

    Six break points in that game for Venus! None converted.

    Match reminds me of Venus vs. Na Li at the 2010 Australian Open.

    Reckon Date-Krum will get up. Venus just can't put her away.

    This set is going down to the wire....since that break back, it's being going according to serve.

    I don't understand how Date holds so easily. Her serve looks popgun.

    Returns are pretty hefty though.
