Word from Wimbledon: Venus W. Queen of the Court

This is just in from the Yahoo headlines:

A wild Venus double-fault at 30-30 in the following game gave Davenport a match point but she could only watch in disbelief as Venus swiped a backhand winner.

Playing on pure instinct, Davenport came under attack at 7-7 and this time Venus edged ahead in the match for the first time since the opening game, battering a winner past her lunging opponent on her third break point.

Davenport looked beaten and although she was given a life when Venus wobbled with another double fault at 40-0, there was no way back as she hit a forehand into the net.

"I felt like she deserved it," said Davenport after the two hour, 45 minute epic.
