A great morale boost for Lindsay!! Of course no one is going to go crazy over an exhibition but with OZ Open so close it a great win over someone she could meet there. Congrats Lindsay!!

If she was injured she shouldn't have played. Great start to the year by both sisters. They should take another vacation.


It's 2008 and I'm shopping for a new fave. Hell no! And Venus is still playing?


I Love You, Roger and Venus, 5-time Wimbledon Champions!

Congratulations to Lindsay.

Get well soon, Venus...

Precious and fragile things
Need special handling...

I pray you learn to trust
Have faith in both of us
And keep room in your hearts for two

Surely, there is no way she'd risk making an "injury" worse a couple of weeks before Melbourne by playing an exhibition. That'd be unbelieveably stupid, which Venus is not. Therefore, the injury must be very minor.

Saying she's injured even before the match is just making excuses...If you're injured don't play and get ready for bigger events in 2006, like I don't know, AO maybe...

Nice one Lindsay. I hope this year she finally wins another Slam...

No.

Well maybe Venus didnt think playing would further hinder her injury, and wanted to see how it went. cut her some slack!

You should have told that to Lindsay last July 2 (I think you know what happened that day).

BTW, Venus isn't seriously injured because if she was, she would have withdrawn like Serena did (who has a knee injury).
