Should Venus or Serena play Eastbourne?

I say YES cos I will be there!!!

I think they should at least consider playing doubles to get some grasscourt match practice, and given their error-riddled French Open performances they should also consider singles to iron out problems heading into Wimbledon.

Mirjana Lucic : Australian Open doubles champ and back in Top 100

Jelena Jankovic : US Open finalist 2008 and World No. 1

Jennifer Capriati : 3 Grand Slams, Olympic Gold and World No.1

Just read this, so guess they won't :


"Their next tournament will be Wimbledon, starting June 21. Instead of entering a tuneup event on grass, Venus and Serena will train on hard courts back home."

Exclamation

With few exceptions, the sisters NEVER play a tournament the week before a Grand Slam. Having said that, I think they should go to London next weekend to start practicing on grass.

Apart from the odditythat they need match practice more than anyone in the top 11 is this flying home a Williams thing or have the other US players also gone home? Seems a bit odd to pile on the jetlag when you could be acclimatising on grass somewhere.
