If this is the same injury that took her out for 6 months, I think she should be very careful about playing the minute she feels a twinge!
This injury affected her serve at the Proximus game 1 week ago and now it affected her today. What sort of medical advice is she getting: that it's OK to play with pain? That it's not so bad as to force her to stop altogether? Does this mean that Venus will have to get used to playing with pain for a while?
but why is she playing then?
Especially with that abdominal injury!
that injury can definetly be carreer threatening
I don't get it? Either she isn't injured (which I don't believe!)
either she is making the same mistake she recently said she would never make again (i.e. playing whilst injured)
Venus! Rest!!!!! You knw how long it takes to heal an abdominal injury

Hmm.. I doubt it.. if this was really that bad injury that took her out 6 months I'm sure that she wouldn't play. I know that she loves Dubai very much.. but even than she shouldn't have played. And before the match I read that she said that she was 100% healty to play! Maybe those blisters were a factor.. tough I don't think that the injuries were the factor for her loss today!
