VENUS WILLIAMS MAKES IT TO THE 3RD ROUND
Mon, 27 Jun 2011 11:49 AM EDT

Venus Williams is a five time champion and required three sets and just around three hours to overcome probably the oldest player around in order to reach into the third round at Wimbledon. Like the second day the third too was delayed with rain at the All England Club. Williams managed to outlast Kimiko Date-Krumm with very close sets of 6-7, 6-3, 8-6, in a battle that rocked everyone around under a sliding roof of the court. The match had some wonderful shots from both players. Scores

Williams is known to have a powerful serve on which she heavily relied on at some key moments in order to overcome a rather gritty challenge from the Japanese player who is the second oldest woman who reach into the second round after the Martina Navratilova era.

Williams said “She doesn’t play anywhere near her age,” Date Krumm fascinated everyone with her backhand passing shots just wide to lose serve on the match point after only 2 hours and 56 minutes of playing. The player got a standing ovation from guests at the Royal Box which included Prince Charles’ wife and the Duchess of Cornwall.

William’s first set fell 5-1 and from then on she had to climb back into the game and ended up finishing with 12 aces and a good 45 winners which is one less than Date-Krumm. Williams got 24 unforced errors and Krumm had 31. This was the first time the two female players had met in their very long careers.

Williams said “It was tough. She came out and I just couldn’t seem to get a game,” “She played so well and before I knew it the ball was past me every time in the first set.” Betting lines

Williams turned 31 just last week and is playing her 15th straight match and was certainly pushed to her limits. Date-Krumm exposed her balance by really hard back serves, as she hit rater flat groundstrokes from her end to the other and also a few near net drop volleys. Football odds

Williams said “She runs down every ball,” “She hits every ball basically on the baseline, hard and flat. If you get it anywhere near the midcourt, she hits for the corners and comes to the net. I thought she played unbelievable today. I thought she had some luck on her side, too, with net cords, balls hitting lines. I just thought today was a perfect storm for her to try to get a win. Thankfully I had some answers,”
