So it looks like Venus can't gain entry into Dubai's main draw. I think she'll take a WC depending on how far she gets in Doha.

A two time Champion at the event needs to ask for a WC???
If im the tourny manager, I would be giving the WC personally!!!!

And Venus is one of a very selected elite who has won Dubai/Doha double in a span of a year!!!

I think that they will give her a WC for a Dubai, but maybe she will not accept it. I would rather her skip Doha, because it is so cold there, and play Dubai, because it is a really fast court and it suits her game. She played there some of her best tennis (those two BHDTL against Azarenka). But first, I really hope so that Vee is HEALTHY. She needs match play and points. And I need her to be fit for Wimbledon.

She should play both. She'd feel like such a flop if she skipped Doha and then got a brutal draw in Dubai and lost R1. Doha is the bigger event anyway, so that should be her main priority. She can withdraw from Dubai if she makes a deep run in Doha.

I think she will. She was starting to do that type of schedule in the fall. I think she knows she needs to pad her schedule a little for now. She will probably draw one of the top seeds early in Doha so I think it's a good idea to have Dubai as back up. This is of course all dependent upon her being healthy.

Adam I'm not sure what to expect on clay from Venus. It's also so up and down. She does tend to do better on the green so hopefully she does go to Charleston.

I think she got a WC...she is not in the Qualifying entry list which means she withdrew VERY early, got a WC, or never really entered.

She's on the entry list for Charleston YAAS! Now hopefully my QF and SF tickets will not be purchased in vain! If I could go see first round, I would. :/

Venus playing Kuala Lumpur

APRIL DATE: Former World No 1 expected to play in BMW Malaysian Open

LOCAL tennis fans are in for a treat as former World No 1 Venus Williams is expected to play in Kuala Lumpur in this year's WTA BMW Malaysian Open.

Carbon Worldwide, organiser of the Malaysian Open, has approached Venus and the five-time Wimbledon champion has agreed to play in the tournament on April 14-21 at the Royal Selangor Golf Club in Kuala Lumpur.

Venus was invited to play in the 2012 edition but withdrew due to illness and injury.

"We are waiting for Venus to pen her signature as the tournament's marquee player," said a reliable source yesterday.

"Her appearance will mark a new era for the tournament, which recently obtained a three-plus-two lease from WTA."

Yass! Vulture some points and get that ranking up Vee!

Kuala Lumpur's field should not be that strong considering it is on the same week with Fed Cup AND being held on hard court in Asia during the European red clay season . But does this mean Vee is skipping Fed Cup?

You can tell Venus' priority is to get her ranking up and get better draws. With a good run in Dubai, she can get into the top 32 for Miami.
