One of the things that i have noticed about Venus' previous schedules is that there really is no patter other than she will most likely play the grand slams and the year end championships. All of the other smaller non slam tourneys dont really matter, she seems to just go to wherever she wants to visits in terms of what places and cultures interest her. i cant say that about any other player. this is part of the uniqueness that makes venus williams a very interesting person. i like her attitude.
