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.

But wait, there's more. Venus decides she wants to send an ace down the T. I take back my words about pressure now... ;)
