Richard tells BBC that Venus & Serena are injured!!

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/tennis/6264190.stm

"Richard Williams has been telling journalists that Serena has been diagnosed with a left calf muscle tear. No news on whether she will be fit to play against Justine Henin. Meanwhile, Venus has tendonitis in her left knee. What odds on them being fit for their doubles match later?"

Re: Richard tells BBC that Venus & Serena are injured!!

There's already a thread on this. Richard likes to speak on the condition of the sisters, because he knows people want to know. They'll be fine.

There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.

Re: Richard tells BBC that Venus & Serena are injured!!

How could she play and serve at 120Mph with a muscle tear???!!!
I don't believe this.
To me it was more looking like a monster cramp. I mean she had the same problems on her other calf later on so it seemed to be that her legs were cramping.

They have just shown an interview with Serena from last night and she says she fit and ready for her next match

Re: Richard tells BBC that Venus & Serena are injured!!

I never believe Richard. I mean, if you watched the whole match, Serena steadily got some of her movement back, so I really think it was a cramp that hasn't quite gone away yet. I mean, I've had the same cramp that Serena had and it was just as painful, and a couple days later, it was much better.

Re: Richard tells BBC that Venus & Serena are injured!!

How are they be called "superb athletes" if they always get injured?

Obviously they dont train and play properly if their bodies turn to "crystal" everytime they play a tourney (which is rare)

well, they have had a lot of injuries and the more you've had the more injury prone you are. thats just the way it is. it doesnt have necessarily to do with "being fit".

maybe it's just tactic because he knows that their opponents hear such things.

intelligent post

I mean they could play tennis without moving and just slightly pushing the ball like Hingis does, but they try to win slams and give always 100 percent so that's why their body is fragile at times.
