Wow. I don't remember the last time Venus even played a Teir III. When was the last time she did. Can anyone tell me? Desparate times come for desparate measures.

She beat Justine Henin Hardenne in the Final that year

Thank God Jelena is playing somewhere...I have a feeling she'll play Qualies for Roland Garros...she might even need a WC to get into the qualifying...sad.

The week before French Open from May 16th to May 23rd.

Dokic and Weingartner are suprising because of their current situations. Pat Cash is the tournament director on this new tier III event.

your right alex...she did say at the start of the year that she wants to go to new places to see the sites and the cultures of living, ever since she went to thailand....thats why she is playing in Stockholm Tier 3 during the hard court season as well.

OMG Venus...im sooo excited that you are playing on a red clay before FO.....this will certainly get you prepared!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I saw her interview this week.. She said she wanted to play an event before the FO but that it definately wouldnt be Berlin, i guess she has chosen Istanbul.

"I want to do things on my own terms, I can't have anything take me out.
I have never given up and it's important for me to prove to myself that I can do this, and to prove to me that i'm a champion.
If I were just to sit down, lay down and give in, then I wouldn't have any respect for myself."
