HONESTY CHECK: Venus & Serena Williams 2007 - WHAT WILL HAPPEN?

REALITY CHECK PEOPLE!

Venus Williams just pulled her first of many withdrawals for the season.

What will happen for the rest of 2007?

I hardly think they'll both have a similar year

I think Serena will have a resurgence, not sure about Venus due to this injury

I just want venus to get on a court competing, everything else would be a bonus

Serena could have a very good year though, if she puts in the work fitness wise. She still looks very below-par fitness wise which is a shame *sigh*

Gee are you trying to insinuate something.

It is really upsetting when even the Williams fans start doubting them. I mean when the haters or people who just put Venus or Serena on their signature just to hide say something like that, you kind of just ignore them becuase they are losers. But all hope is lost when even a Williams sister fan says it.

Re: HONESTY CHECK: Venus & Serena Williams 2007 - WHAT WILL HAPPEN?

I have low hopes, I hate to say it, Serena looked gigantic in those courthouse photos from this week. Hopefully it was just the photos, but I'm not so sure.
I think they've just lost interest in tennis, due to injuries, which I do believe they had and have, and that's really contributed to their waning interest.
I hope I'm wrong, but I don't think so.

Serena should be fine, training & working to be fit enough.

Venus needs to be healthy.

to new beginnings.

I agree about Vee. Honestly, she should just stay out of tournaments until the wrist is 100%...even if it means not seeing her until the Clay or Grass.

I expect Serena will win a tournament before Venus steps on the court in 2007, still, they could both finish the year in the top 10, I really hope they do...If they both make the YEC (and Marti of course) I am going to Madrid!

If Serena gets into 2004 form, she'll be three years behind. Her fitness level and stroke production need to be better than they've ever been if she wants to compete.

Re: HONESTY CHECK: Venus & Serena Williams 2007 - WHAT WILL HAPPEN?

there's more hope for Serena right now b/c she's healthy (relatively speaking of course) ...she still needs to get into better shape...and that's not going to happen anytime soon..still she should/can have decent results at the beginning of the year as long as she plays...I hope by French Open/Wimbledon time she'll be in better shape...but with Serena you just never know...it could very well be much of the same Serena that we saw in 06'
