If Venus intends to qualify for the YEC the two tournaments she's committed to doesn't demonstrate that.
Also, as far as I know, the YEC points have nothing to do with defending. They are earned per match won and do not have to be defended from one year to the next, just like Knizzle said. Of course not getting into the YEC could sink Kim lower than ever because her rankings points will be in jeopardy. Is there any possibility of her qualifying if she plays about six tourneys?
Again I say I don't believe Venus cares about qualifying, but if she adds a tournament or two we'll know for sure. Perhaps these commitments were based on her hope that she would do well leading into the USO and out of it.
It's 2008 and I'm shopping for a new fave. Hell no! And Venus is still playing?
I Love You, Roger and Venus, 5-time Wimbledon Champions!
