Venus Williams had a great start at the 2010 Australian Open, great matches, great victories, revealing wardrobe, but now it is all over. Check out Venus Williams’ 2010 Australian Open latest news, plus photos and video.
The last time tennis player Venus Williams saw the finals at another Australian Open was in 2003, and she withdraw at the 2007 Aussie event. Last year she lost against the Spaniard Carla Suarez Navarro in the second round. To give a great performance after people were talking how her ability and age were not on her side in Melbourne, Australia was one of the many motivations Venus had this year.
"I love playing. I want to win each tournament I play. I want to win the majors, play doubles and be in the Olympics," said Venus in an interview.
We could witness that inspiration since the beginning of this year’s tournament; in the first round she easily beat Lucie Safaorva (Czech Republic) 6-2 two sets in a row, then in the second round she played against Sybille Bammer (Austria) she beat her 6-2,7-5.
The third round we saw a more relaxed yet powerful Venus defeat Casey Dellacqua (Australia) 6-1, 7-6, in the fourth round Venus faced Francesca Schiavone (Italy) down the first set 3-6 but beat in the next ones 6-2, 6-1 earning her spot along with her sister Serena in the quarterfinals, and fans began commenting if they both win in the QF they will face each other in the Semifinals, but unfortunately that is something we won’t be watching.
The Quarterfinals were starting and Venus would played against LI Na (China) who came from defeating Caroline Wozniachki (Denmark) 6-4. 6-3. Li Na, World number 16 defeated Venus world number 6, 6-2, 6-7, 6-5. This is the first time Li Na reached the semifinals.
Venus Williams left the Australian Open, with the satisfaction that she played with energy, power, versatility in every match, for us we will remember that as well as her colored flesh underwear.
