Venus on her loss today

Source: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/tennis/4306293.stm

Williams though blamed her defeat by Farina Elia on injuries.

"Blisters were a factor, but mostly my stomach wasn't that great," she said.

"I did it in the last tournament in the semi-finals, and I was serving at 40% in the final.

"The first time I served again was Sunday and there wasn't a lot I could do out there. When your serve isn't good it throws the rest of your game off too."

She will wait to see how she recovers before deciding whether to take part in the Nasdaq-100 Open in Miami, starting on 21 March.

Then you should not have played, Venus!

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?

Please take care of yourself, Venus!

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

Honey, if you insist on playing wrap a corsette around your abs, or at the very least some Saran Wrap.

Williams said even if she had won the second set, she might not have played the third.

"I really don't know if I would have played the third, and if I would have won the match I really don't think I would have continued the tournament," she said.

"Now I'll have to rest it. My next tournament is in Miami in about 20 days. If I'm really fit and ready to go then I'll play. If I'm not, then I won't."

so basically she's been injured for two years now...

either she can take a serious amount of time off and recover or she can play like this for the rest of her career

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!

WhatS'uP?
