Has Venus ever played 20 tournies in one year?? She really wants to be back on top. Good for her I say. Just wondering why LA, San Diego, and New Haven are missing from her schedule. Interesting though, that's she's playing Toronto and Beijing.

Really, don't even look at me...

I highly doubt she makes the trip to Toronto. She NEVER came to Canada ever in her career, and I think she'll follow suit yet again. Wasn't she expected to come a year or two ago, but didn't end up coming?

No. In 2003 she was injured and last year, she played other tournaments.

Is she really not playing Berlin, San Diego or New Haven!?!?

Those are some of Vee's favorite tournaments!

And she needs to defend her Berlin points if she wants a top 8 seeding at the FO!

Tennis-Exhausted Venus likely to skip French Open warm-ups

Thu Apr 14, 4:42 PM ET

By Simon Cambers

CHARLESTON, South Carolina, April 14 (Reuters) - A mentally and physically exhausted Venus Williams is likely to skip the traditional European claycourt warm-up tournaments in order to be fully prepared for this year's French Open.



The American, whose defence of her Family Circle Cup title ended on Thursday with a 7-5 6-4 defeat by 17-year-old French girl Tatiana Golovin, traditionally plays in at least one event before arriving in Paris.


But the 24-year-old said on Thursday the effort of playing three back-to-back tournaments had left her drained.


"I just think that mentally and physically I may have just lost it," said Williams, who competed in Miami and Amelia Island before Charleston.


"I just think I'm having a mental letdown from all the tennis I've been playing in the last four weeks. It's very hard to play all these weeks in a row, mentally."


The former world number one, whose ranking has slipped to number eight, was unsure exactly what her commitments would be.


"I'm playing Fed Cup (April 23-24), so a lot more training, not really time for a break yet and then that's about it until the French Open," she said.

I dont know or think that dropping those big tournies she was so successful in past would do her any good? Let me elaborate on this, I mean shes won Sandiego like 4 times hasnt she? Certainly three, shes won New Heaven(Pilot Pen) 4 times consecutively wasnt it? Now my logic, certainly from following tennis over the past 6 or 7 yrs tells me players usually continue going to tournies where they've been successful in the past and usually they continue that success throughout their careers. For example Hingis always played Tokyo the tier 1, she always played sydney and Filderstadt and she always did very well in these tournies right up to her decline and pre-retirement from tour, the same goes for Federer, he keeps coming to Dubai which he has won 3 straight times now as well as Hamburg and many others.

To me it seems a bit illogical that she would drop these tournies because anyways the fact that shes done so well in these tournies would give bring her back those memories of success and make her realize that she has done so well before and give her the confidence to repeat on those past successes?

I think appearance fees have more to do with her posted schedule than anything else.

Other players on the tour must be having a laugh at this quote: "I just think I'm having a mental letdown from all the tennis I've been playing in the last four weeks. It's very hard to play all these weeks in a row, mentally."

She played what? 4 matches at Miami, and 2 each at the clay tournaments? That's not very much tennis at all. Maybe it was filming the "reality" program the 10 days before the tournament that added to the mental exhaustion.

Also she had about two weeks to rest before Berlin so there was plenty time to regroup.

But, if she wants to play in Turkey -- which is a really nice place -- rather then Berlin, that's ok with me.
