I don't understand why Venus ...

... allegedly claimed to be fine after her 2nd round match in Tokyo.

From WTA site:
Williams, who was upset in the third round in Melbourne by compatriot Lisa Raymond, confirmed she is fully fit and looking forward to her quarterfinal clash with another American, Chanda Rubin.
"I'm not even thinking about my stomach muscle, it's past that stage."


WTA lied or ... ?

I don't understand why you needed a special thread for this. There are about 3 other threads concerning her withdrawal

The WTA lied???

Maybe it's an injury she just didn't want to disclose at the time. Or maybe it occurred after her first match.

Because I'm an attention-seeker !?

It's just strange because Venus says it's the injury from the Australian Open so why should she claim to be 100% ? So maybe WTA made that up.

well... she was about to talk about her feet and her injury... but... she stopped and just congratulated Lisa. Maybe she was playing fine during her practices, but when she started to play competitively, it suddenly flare up again or something..

And IF WTA made that up then I'm really p*ssed because I put quite a few € on Venus winning the tournament.
