Serena's second surgery

Serena, the reigning Australian Open champion, and Wimbledon champion Venus both endured rugged 2005 seasons because of injury.

The pair's diluted influence was measured in the comparatively meagre number of titles they managed to pocket.

Venus, 25, landed two singles titles with a 37-10 record. Serena was seen at fewer events, finishing with a 21-7 mark and the Rod Laver Arena crown.

Serena, 24, succumbed to a chronic left ankle injury and was finally forced off the circuit after an embarrassing first-round loss in Beijing in September.

Only the second player after Margaret Osborne duPont to save match points twice en route to a grand slam final, Williams wrote off the rest of her season.

She will resume, along with Venus, in a Hong Kong exhibition from January 4-7.

Now ranked 11th, the former world No. 1 underwent knee surgery in October. I didn't hear any news about this. Does anyone know if it's true?

Venus's year was marginally better, highlighted by an emotional rise to a third Wimbledon win, where she saved a match point in the final against Lindsay Davenport.

But she, too, was troubled by a left-knee injury that forced her off the tour.

The Williams sisters are due to face Davenport, Kim Clijsters, Nicole Vaidisova and Sania Mirza in Hong Kong.

Did a google search, but found no other reference to surgery in October 2005.

Maybe the person meant October 2004, and STILL got it wrong (since her surgery was in September right?)

Wasn't there a picture of Serena showing a scar on one of her legs? I remember seeing it somewhere on this board recently.

I hope not, knee surgeries just assure that your knee will never be the same.

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

That scar is a long way away from her knee. Maybe she had surgery on her ankle.

Sometimes athletes have a small surgery so a doctor can go in and check to see if a major surgery is needed. Thats what happened to Amare Stoudemire on the Suns (I live in Phoenix thats how I know) so hopefully if that is true then its the same with Serena and if she went under a major surgery IDC if she wanted to keep it a secret someone would've reported on it.
