Venus Withdraws From China Open!

"It's a new injury that came last night," Williams told reporters. "I'm not fit enough to play a tennis match. It's a pity I can't play but I hope I can play in Guangzhou. Maybe now I can see the Forbidden City."

Maybe it was from post-practice stretching? Damn, this is a shame. It's odd to me that she is sitting this one out, but mentions maybe being ready for a tourny that is next week. I guess it is just a publicity thing, to promote the other tourny, cause what injury fully heals in a week?

Venus pulls out of China Open with knee injury

BEIJING (Reuters) - Wimbledon champion Venus Williams pulled out of the China Open with a left knee injury on Friday, dealing a new blow to tournament organizers.

"It's a new injury that came last night," Williams told reporters. "I'm not fit enough to play a tennis match. It's a pity I can't play but I hope I can play in Guangzhou. Maybe now I can see the Forbidden City."

Williams's withdrawal has left the $585,000 tournament without three of its top four seeds.

Lindsay Davenport pulled out after winning in Bali at the weekend and Venus's younger sister Serena suffered a shock 6-2, 7-6 defeat by China's Sun Tiantian in her opening match.

Only world number one Maria Sharapova is left in.

Third seed Venus took a knee-injury timeout late in her 6-3, 6-1 win over Spain's Nuria Llagostera Vives on Thursday but had shown no ill effects in finishing off the second round match.

The former world number one has been troubled by knee and various other injuries throughout her career.

Venus, who was due to play Poland's Marta Domachowska in a quarter-final on Friday, is scheduled to appear in Guangzhou, southern China, next week.

"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."

This sucks, although Maria will most certainly win this, it still sucks that there's no challenge...
