Venus Williams Survives Three Set Match On Wednesday Against Sania Mirza

sania_mirzaVenus Williams beat Sania Mirza 6-1 3-6 6-2 in the second round of the Family Circle Cup yesterday.

You might be asking yourself, why is this interesting or informative? And you may ask yourself, wouldn’t this be more newsworthy if Venus had lost?

And you may ask yourself…well…how did I get here?

And you may ask yourself, am I right? Am I wrong?  And you may tell yourself, my god! What have I done?

Whoa, I had Talking Heads on the brain for a second. Apologies.

To answer the original question before I went all David Byrne on you, the interesting aspect of the match was Venus’ opponent, Sania Mirza. As you can see from the above photo, some would say the 100th ranked 22 year-old tennis player from India could be considered kind of a looker. You be the judge.

Yep. I’m sold.
