Player of the week: Venus Williams

Venus Williams has enjoyed two perfect weeks, winning 10 consecutive matches and two titles. After her title last week in the Premier event of Dubai, it was uncertain how was she going to face a less important tournament in Acapulco, especially considering the long trip and time zone difference. But Williams showed how great competitor she is and, despite not playing at her best and losing a set on each match on her way to the semis, she stayed focused and fought to go past veteran clay specialists Nuria Llagostera and Greta Arn, and Top-30 Agnes Szavay. As usual, Williams showed her best performance in the decissive matches, as she swept Barbora Zahlavova-Strycova in the semisand 2nd seed Flavia Pennetta (WTA #15) in the final, dropping no more than 3 games on each match.
