Red face Daily Telegraph: Justine and Venus Are Out of French Open

French field in disarray
By John Thirsk

May 11, 2004

JUST two weeks out from the French Open at Roland Garros, the women's field is in disarray with three of the world's top-eight ranked players out of the year's second grand slam championship.

Missing through injury and illness are the Belgian duo, world No.1 Justine Henin-Hardenne (virus) and No.2 Kim Clijsters, and American Venus Williams (ankle).



The injury toll has given Serena Williams - herself playing only her second event after eight months on the sideline at the Italian Open starting in Rome tonight - a saloon passage to another grand slam victory. Older sister Venus, 23, is on crutches after rolling her ankle in a semi-final at the Berlin Open on the weekend

I don't believe this story based on what we have been hearing about Justine.

No Venus
No Kim
No Justine

On the other hand, at least Aussie TV can broadcast matches of other players

It sounds like The Daily Telegraph got the information WRONG again.

Question

Isn't this the same paper that said Venus and Serena wouldn't play doubles at Wimbledon last year and they did?

I don't believe it either...

Especially cos it's too early for Venus to know for sure

Why not?

You had two choices to post or not to post.

What if the same article was in an American paper and I posted it?
