Granted, clay is obviously not Venus's best surface (last year was her only finish past the Quarters in seven tries) and she played like crap today, making 75 unforced errors in the three sets (an average of almost three a game) as well as a ridiculous 12 double faults with no aces, but the victory by Zvonareva (who shares my birthday, doncha know?) broke a string of four straight Grand Slam final appearances by the lesser Williams (granted, she lost them all).
Next up for Vera is fellow Russian Nadia Petrova, who pulled off a three-set upset herself today against Jennifer Capriati, with a possible Grand Slam rematch against Clijsters down the road. And a win there means the drinks are on me.
Update: stupid Nadia Petrova...
