Venus advised to withdraw from Guangzhou and Filderstadt

From Venus' Official Site:
Announcements From Venus Williams Headquarters


Quote:
I regret that I will not be able to continue competing in China after so many great experiences during my first visit to the mainland. I was looking forward to competing in Guangzhou, but I have been advised by medical professionals to rest my knee in an effort to allow it to fully heal. For this reason, I have also been required to withdraw from the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix (Filderstadt). I regret that I will miss both of these events and am appreciative to both tournament organizers for the kind hospitality that they have extended. I look forward to being full-recovered and back on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour in the very near future.
Get well soon Venus!

Get well soon

Good decision. Health comes first. As to Guangzhou - there is always next year.

Best of luck to my favourites:
Lina Krasnoroutskaya, Vera Zvonareva, Masha Sharapova
Vénus Williams, Seréna Williams, Lindsay Dávenport
Jelena Dokic, Daniela Hántuchova, Ana Ivanovic
Masha Kirilenko, Nastya Rodionova, Alina Jidkova

To all players on tour: stay healthy and play your best

WHOA! Poor Vee.
Well, she definitely did the right thing heeding the professionals' advice.

Because she expected to be healthy to play and
it's people like you that bitch when Williams doesn't
play enough.

If she hadn't got hurt
she would have played.

Besides, Serena is still scheduled
to play and I believe Venus will tag along
while recouping and practicing with Serena.
