Venus Looking For Singles Title #4 in Charleston
Venus Williams is coming into this event with 3 WWW Singles titles under her belt; Sydney, Memphis and Amelia Island along with 3 WWW Doubles titles; Indian Wells, Miami, and Amelia Island.
"It's been a great season so far, but I want more. I want to have a lot of clay success. Last week was a lot of fun winning both the singles and doubles titles, I want to keep doing it, you know."
Venus struggled a bit in Amelia Island, going to three sets 3 out of 4 times.
"As I said before the week began, it was going to be tough to switch surfaces from fast grass to slow clay. I wasn't expecting to win the tournament, I wanted to, but thought it would be incredibly hard to do. But here I am in Charleston, the only player on a winning streak."
"I worked on a lot of thing during the week in Amelia Island, that really payed off during my matches. I hope to keep building my confidence and game in this lovely town of Charleston before heading off to Europe."
In the first round, Venus has a bye. "I have a days rest before the second round. Which could be against my Fed Cup teammate Christina or my Fed Cup opponent Andrea Petkovic. So it should be interesting. I have hit with both before, so I know their games pretty well."
