Question for the forum?

How is it that Serena and Venus have pulled out of tournaments recently because of injury but they will be playing on their McDonalds tour starting in Nov. ?

Exos are just for show, the players dont really give 100% or exert themselves during these matches.

Once you attend an exo you will understand.

Especially an exhibition against each other. I mean, you know Maria and Venus want a piece of each other, so the exhibition will be a lot more like a normal match, but not between Venus and Serena.

Whitney Houston and her receipts:

I saw an exo between the two of them, and I would say they were hitting the ball at roughly 50% pace, to include serves. It's like a walk in the park for them.
