Confirmed, big chance Venus won't play Fed Cup against Belgium!

Sporza, Belgium

Venus Williams will probably not be a part of the American Fed Cup team when they are going to play against the Belgium Fed Cup team. '' I'm not going to stay healthy if I must play everything'' said Venus. Serena Williams and Davenport both have said that they won't play in Oostende. Belgium will play against USA at 15 and 16 July in the semifinals of Fed Cup.


Hmm... I was hoping though since I saw Venus her schedule that she would play Fed Cup since she decided to skip Stanford. I hope she could still change her mind though, I'd rather see her skipping those WTT matches and play Fed Cup. But whatever decision Venus makes I respect it, and if she sees it as a danger to her health I'm 100% surporting her decision.

Watch my uploaded highlights of Williams sisters their matches on this link: http://www.veoh.com/userVideos.html?...me=tennismania

"I won't stay healthy if I play everything?" She plays nothing anymore! Before you all start on me...I'm over both Venus and Serena trying to "preserve" themselves like Disney. Perhaps they both need a bloody workout!!!

Joking...Pissed off coz the game needs them really K not joking hehe

****** Dasha Sam, Jarka, Casey, Serena , then the guys with nice asses on the ATP, followed by other Aussies, bit of a gap...then Venus.....bit of a bum scratch...then will watch Lisiki or Radwanksa...gap...everyone else (or sleep) ******

dont play venus.. fed cup is really boring and i prefer venus to play a wta tournament later instead of fed cup.. for venus to stay healthy is no 1.. and she would probably have to go three hard matches and win them all for US to have a chance

Serena And Venus

Oh yeah, really
concrete confirmation!

Until Venus says, "I won't be playing
Fed Cup" or Zina/US Team officials
involed say so their is no confirmation.

Let's see how many will
run with this.

This should surprise no one.

It's too close after Wimbledon.

Anyway, I think she is being more sensible with her hardcourt schedule this year. Last year was too demanding. All that work after Wimbledon, plus Stanford and WTT. byt the time Stockhom rolled around she was ill, and even so, she would have to leave America and fly across to Europe, then fly back to Toronto for the next week, then back to the New York. It wasnt the best.

This year I think she will stay in US, play WTT, then events like San Diego and LA. Then US Open. Maybe Even Pilot Pen!! Who knows!!!

the reason fed cup is boring is becaus players like venus too often choose not to play

Tatiana Golovin, Timea Bacsinzky, Petra Kvitova, Kristina Mladenovic, Laura Robson

For Jamea and Shenay, as well as for Venus and Davey, it is not convenient to have to be in Europe that week. The girls need to think about their ranking first.

I'd rather see the US concede the tie and send some non-Top 100 players over there, maybe Julie Ditty and Lilia Osterloh, something like that. The US has no chance to win no matter who they send.

i love fed cup even if there is not a player like venus williams...it´s the special atmosphere and the team spirit that makes it exiting for me.
