Google news search turns up nothing.

She is still listed in the draw on the tournament website.

Anyone have a credible news source for this rumour?

Мари́я Ю́рьевна Шара́пова​ , Јелена Јанковић, Venus Williams.

Injury keeps Venus Williams away

Due to a sprained ligament, Venus Williams has had to withdraw from the fifth edition of the Proximus Diamond Games Antwerp.

"The Proximus Diamond Games is a fantastic event that I have enjoyed playing over the years. The tournament staff has always been extremely hospitable and this has become one of my favorite events. I am especially disappointed about not having an opportunity to win the diamond racquet this year but I do hope to return in 2007.", says Venus Williams.

"Our diamond racket will stay in Belgium for at least another year. Obviously we were looking forward to have Venus once again in our tournament. She has been a key player in the promotion of our event and is incredibly popular in Belgium. But as with other top players, injuries have been putting her back. Fortunately we still have an incredible field with 6 top 10 players.", says tournament director Bob Verbeeck.

These top 10 players are Kim Clijsters, Amélie Mauresmo, Mary Pierce, Patty Schnyder, Elena Dementieva and Nadia Petrova.
