Serena survives Watson, Kvitova conquers Venus in first week finishes
At 34, the seven-times grand slam champion recovered from a set down to see off Date-Krumm and deny the age-defying Japanese a victory. She set the prime example. Date-Krumm turns 44 next month but shows no sign of wanting to call it a day and when she took the opening set, a first win over Williams in their fourth meeting looked possible. Taking the ball early with her unique short, jabbing, flat groundstrokes, Date-Krumm kept Williams on the back foot. Date-Krumm, who reached a career-high ranking of fourth in , quit tennis the same year, only to return 12 years later.
Once she had levelled at one set apiece, there only looked like being one winner and Williams maintained her momentum to advance to round two.

Venus Williams pulled off the upset on Saturday, beating No. The match was the sisters’ 25th meeting, but just the second in the last five years, having played each other for the first time on the pro tour 16 years ago. It was Venus’ first win over Serena since and it snapped a five-match losing streak to her younger, more accomplished sister. Venus’ tactical risk paid off : Last week at Stanford, Andrea Petkovic, who beat Venus in three sets in the quarterfinals before playing Serena in the semis, offered a clear distillation of the contrast in the sisters’ styles.
The German told reporters she felt like the match wasn’t in her hands when she played Venus, who plays a much flatter ball and takes huge aggressive risks off the ground. Serena on the other hand, while blessed with huge power as well, can slip into playing rallies with more placement and margin and give her opponent an opportunity to get into rhythm. Serena’s ability to play a more consistent game and defend when needed — along with her second serve, which is head and shoulders better than Venus’ — is why she’s been so dominant over the years.
Her game can be off and she can win. That’s not the case for Venus against elite players. On Saturday, it was Venus’ big risky game that won out. She stood well within the baseline to return Serena’s serve and while that meant she got aced 19 times in the match — 12 times in the tight first set — it eventually paid off. It allowed her to be immediately aggressive off the first strike and draw nine double-faults over the course of three sets, several of which came in high-pressure moments.
Off the ground, Venus was as consistent as she has been all year with her forehand.

By Brett Cyrgalis. In the midst of an opening-round match between Venus Williams and Kimiko Date-Krumm at Arthur Ashe Stadium on Monday afternoon, a bee attacked both players at separate times, creating small pauses in the action and many laughs from the fans. Date-Krumm was the first to be attacked, late in the second set. She bobbed and weaved to the best of her ability, and handed her racket to a ballperson in hopes he would kill it. With some swings of a towel and some failed attempts with the racket, the bee flew off.
Williams kept her cool, got the bee on her racket, and a ballperson wrapped it up in the towel and took it off.

US Open 2014: Venus Williams triumphs in battle of veterans against Kimiko Date Krumm in Round 1
More than three decades have passed since the publication of the last review of the Venus clouds and hazes. The paper published in in the Venus book summarized the discoveries and findings of the US Pioneer Venus and a series of Soviet Venera spacecraft Esposito et al. Due to the emphasis on in-situ investigations from descent probes, those missions established the basic features of the Venus cloud system, its vertical structure, composition and microphysical properties.
Since then, significant progress in understanding of the Venus clouds has been achieved due to exploitation of new observation techniques onboard Galileo and Messenger flyby spacecraft and Venus Express and Akatsuki orbiters. They included detailed investigation of the mesospheric hazes in solar and stellar occultation geometry applied in the broad spectral range from UV to thermal IR.
