Will both sisters withdraw from Acura Classic?

After today's performance. I kind of get the feeling that Vee and Serena will pull out. They need to work on their game, if they are to stand any chance of winning the Olympics, and USopen. I'm sure Vee might not play. Serena might follow suit, citing fatigue.Hope not, but its a feeling. I want at least one of them in the draw!!! I'm already dreading the headline for tomorrow!!!! Somebody help!!!!!!!!!!!!! My favs are losing and I feel so helpless!!!!!

No,no...they need this, they need this. I´m in shock myself. Can´t stand them losing, but the only way Serena´s gonna improve that footwork is by playing beaucoup of matches.

Always bet on black!

There is no point in serena pulling out. She got the final which is good enough and will improve with more matches. It's not like her career is down the flusher.

To add to that, tht tournament director said today that if Venus needs an extra day to play, she'll get it. In other words, if she needs until Tuesday to give her wrist more time to heal, she can take the extra day.

The best way to improve your game is to play competitive matches ... you can practice as much as you want but it will never be enough! A withdrawal would be a huge mistake!

That's why I like the fact that Venus said she intends to play next week and the tournament must really want her to if they are willing to give her an extra day to start.

I'm more worried about her legs than her wrists. Even the Olympics is on hardcourt, I dont think it's a good idea to be playing that much, not to mention how hot the weather has been.

Even though they are not winning the tournaments right now, they are adding points out the ying yang because neither of them is defending anything from this point on until Australia when Venus has a few points to defend.
