I think she will, but I'm curious to how her ankle is coming.

She'll play...she'll get throught the first few rounds pretty easily...then there'll be maybe a three setter that she wins in the round of 16...people will start saying that she may be faltering and her injury is getting to her. She'll get through the quarterfinal...ther'll be discussion that she may pull out before her semifinal match but she won't...and she'll lose in three tough sets.

Q. How is Venus right now?

SERENA WILLIAMS: She's in great spirits. She's doing great. She's definitely going to be very, very difficult to beat at the French Open.
BTW, just got word from V&Sfans board that in a
Florida newspaper Vee was already back on the
tennis courts preparing last week.

for some reason this sounds very possible.

an ankle strain is really no big deal. A SPRAIN would take much longer to heal.

Exactly.

A strain takes a few days to heal. If she had a sprain, she would have not been able to play until Wimbledon.

Talking

Also on the V&S Fans board is a rumor that Venus will be headed to Paris tomorrow. So that is more good news.

I think she's definitely going to play, and I LOVE the confidence in her from SERENA.

I really really want Venus to be healed and able to compete but I'm just watching cautiously and hopefully from the background.

I can recall in Australia Venus managed to convince most of us that Serena would play even though many news agencies suggested otherwise. When I see here there and hear her say she's good enough to play I'll believe it.

The only news agency that said she wouldn't play was some paper in Australia and that has been discounted. The fact that she is headed to Paris tomorrow suggest that she is definitely playing. If there were any doubts that she was even going to play, we wouldn't even know what day she would be travelling to Paris.
