She is due to lose weight before AO
She withdrew because of many sauna and dietician sessions planned for the 15 days to come...

Typical ,very dissapointing indeed, she not bloody injured at all ,theres nothing wrong with her ,well nothing that putting a combination lock on her fridge would solve.

Every time EVERY STINKING time she suffers a loss shes ' injured' then shes off partying again ,players suffer losses ,even Serena ,and they just pick up and carry on ,but oh no not her lately ,well sadly I see her getting her ass kicked early in the AO and its her own fault ,she deserves it ,she has not even tried to get in shape and work ,doesnt seem to know the meaning of the word ,so she needs a big wake up call and fast.

Serena is a legend and won countless slams that is true ,so maybe her fans will have to accept shes just not interested anymore ,she has nothing to prove and I think she doesnt care a shit ,I hope I am wrong ,but you have to accept it ,for a WS fan to say Serena is not out of shape is like me as a huge Elena fan denying that there is anything wrong with lenas serve.

Get it sorted Serena ,get ya ass out of Maccy Ds and back on the courts pronto...your fans are waiting ,and they wont wait for ever...

Captain of the all new SS Dementieva


Once a Lena fan always a Lena fan

Serena Williams pulls out of Hong Kong, will play in Australian Open

January 6, 2006

HONG KONG (AP) -- Serena Williams pulled out of the Champions Challenge exhibition tournament in Hong Kong on Friday with a knee injury, but plans to play in the upcoming Australian Open.

"Serena has developed inflammation and swelling of her left knee joint over the past two days," tournament physical therapist Donna Sutton said in a statement. "After assessment and treatment, we have advised her to rest and continue treatment to prevent further irritation."

Asked before an autograph session if the injury would affect her participation in the Australian Open, which starts Jan. 16, Williams simply said, "No."

Williams lost in straight sets to Russian Elena Dementieva in the exhibition tournament Wednesday.

Losing some weight would help the knees.
Get it together, Serena, and come back strong. (But not too strong, k?)

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Sounds right to me...But by doing what she did in HK she sure comes out that way...

But she shouldn't have been there in the first place, not the way she is playing at the moment...

No.

LOL @ "not fair".

I'm sorry I guess you are right, the next time any tennis player wants to forefeit due to health reasons, they should DEFINITELY think about the NEXT player instead of what is best for their OWN health.

Let's all base our own decisions on how it will effect the next person.

That is hate if I've ever seen it.
