Venus To Play In Memphis In February

Venus Williams, James Blake and Andy Roddick have committed to play in the Regions Morgan Keegan Championships tennis tournament, which will be held from Feb. 16-25 next year.

Williams will also participate in a special fund raising event for the National Civil Rights Museum being held during the tournament. Williams is scheduled to play the first match Feb. 19, while Roddick will play the first match Feb. 20. Defending Champ Tommy Haas will return to defend his title as well.


Beverly Robertson, president of the National Civil Rights Museum, said Williams' contributions to tennis make her a perfect fit for the Museum's fundraiser.

"We are delighted she feels compelled to leave her legacy here through fundraising efforts," Robertson said.

Re: Venus To Play In Memphis In February

I think this shows that Vee and Ree are serious about tennis. Serena's playing a Tier IV and Venus is playing a Tier III..hopefully they'll be back to full strenght soon.

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Serena.
