Venus out of Hopman Cup officially :: France replaces Germany....

Quote:
AMERICAN tennis superstar Venus Williams has pulled out of next month's Hyundai Hopman Cup at Burswood Dome.

Her omission is a huge blow to the event, which precedes the Australian Open.

In a statement released by the tournament today, a wrist injury was blamed for Williams' no-show.

New teams:
Tatiana Golovin will partner Jerome Haehnel for France
Sania Mirza will partner Rohan Bopanna for India
Ashley Harkleroad will partner Mardy Fish for the US

I can't say I'm surprised. I hope you get well soon, Venus.

I'm close to dropping both Vee and Serena. This mess is out of control.

Exactly. I wish they would both just retire since they obviously don't (and haven't) care about coming back. Every year it is the same damn thing.

I'm sorry but this getting ridiculous! Venus better stop committing events until she ready for play tennis then she can commit to tournaments again! She always let the fans down whom attending the tournaments all the time.

I seriously think the WTA should give her with a warning if she keeps pulling out and she should get a fine. She's a joker.
