Venus, Grand Slam Champions shouldn't play Tier IVs darling

i dont think she'll play. but if she does, it will be good.
apparently tennis interest in Sweden is diminishing.

Alicia Molik won it last year, so despite it's Tier status it's a pretty popular stop on the tour.

Well Venus was entered well before she became the Wimbledon champion, so she was probably just using this as a confidence builder. Anyway, I doubt she'll pull out because she's been excited about going to this tournament in some of her interviews

Venus Williams-Ana Ivanovic-Serena Williams-Vika Azarenka-Caroline Wozniacki

McHale-Stephens-Watson-Robson-Townsend

Brodsky-Muhammad-Hampton-Keys-Crawford-Andrews-Hardebeck

Venus doesnt care if its a tier IV

The main reason shes playing those places its because she wants to bring her tennis to places she has never been before, so HER FANS can enjoy her more!

Venus Williams (The Queen) , Maria Sharapova (The Diva) , Lindsay Davenport (The Legend) , Jelena Janković (The Exotic Beauty) , Serena Williams (The Princess) , Ana Ivanovic (the REAL Promise)

"People said, we weren't going to make it because we were from the 'hood. … People didn't believe in us because of where we came from." Venus Williams.

Yes, she wants to travel to new places, she's said that. The confidence thing I guess was also a factor but... woops... I guess she's taken care of that already !!!!

VENUS WILLIAMS

Queen of WTAWORLD, Queen of Tennis.

Good luck Venus!! although she probably won't need it. Myskina is her toughest opponent, and she is totally out of form. This tournament will be a walk in the park!

Q. I heard you're going to the Nordic Lights Open. Is that true?

VENUS WILLIAMS: Yes.

Q. How come you chose to attend that competition?

VENUS WILLIAMS: Because I had the opportunity, so I went. I'm going.

Q. It isn't that really big.

VENUS WILLIAMS: I'm very excited. I've never been. For every year since I've been playing, my schedule has been the same every summer. So I'm glad to flip the script.

Q. Have you been to Stockholm before?

VENUS WILLIAMS: No.

Q. What do you expect?

VENUS WILLIAMS: Good time and some wins.

Whoops! Good one Mad-About-Venus.

I hope Venus takes in the scenery (countryside). I hear it's beautiful out there.

I love her. She really thinks about her fans. Yes it's a tier 4, but who cares?
