That was one of the best tennis rallies I've seen in a long, long time. Venus sends Serena running to every corner of the court. That rally had to end somewhere and it ends as Serena shanks a forehand. There's stress and it's palpable. From both ends. 15-30.
That was an epic rally. An epic rally. It stays down the line - and Venus starts taking it across the court. Again, Serena tries that doublehanded backhand and sends it wide - almost a carbon copy of the previous shot.
That game was almost under a minute! Serena sends a couple of backhands into all corners and Venus builds onto that with an ace at the best time! She's just held her service game and we've got a contest on our hands.
An unforced error for Venus and she's at 40-30. An angry Serena still settles down and she sends a great, lightly touched forehand across the court. She's taken three consecutive games now for a 5-3 lead.
