Venus falls to Puchkova in Brazil Semifinal
Friday, 01 March 2013 20:41

Unfortunately Venus' run at the Brazilian Open came to an end on Friday, as she lost in three sets to Russia's Olga Puchkova 4:6, 6:4, 7:5.

Venus played quite well in the first set and the beginning of the second set, but Puchkova started playing better, while Venus' level begain to drop.

Unfortunately it appears that Venus is still struggling with back issues :(  In the third set she was moving rather slowly, and she was struggling a lot with her serve.

Both Venus and Serena will have about a month off now, as both will be skipping the Indian Wells tournament.  They will return to action in Miami the end of March.
