Venus Williams To Face A Challenge In Pennetta
05.29.2008 PARIS-- Venus had a good win today at the French Open as she defeated in round two Selima Sfar 6-2, 6-4 moving in to the net on many
occasions. The bad news is Venus next plays 26th seeded Flavia Pennetta of Italy.
Venus is tied with Penetta head to head 1-1 and actually lost to her in Bangkok in their last meeting 6-4, 7-6(10-8) but that was when Venus was
having some fatigue problems back in the winter. Panetta has won two smaller clay court tournaments this year so Venus will have to watch out
and be ready.
