Re: Will Venus and Serena withdraw from Doubles

Apparently they have...

"I want to do things on my own terms, I can't have anything take me out.
I have never given up and it's important for me to prove to myself that I can do this, and to prove to me that i'm a champion.
If I were just to sit down, lay down and give in, then I wouldn't have any respect for myself."

Well I'm glad in a way. But Serena's injury must be serious.

Re: Will Venus and Serena withdraw from Doubles

It could be about Venus saving her energy for singles; she'll have to play 4 days in a row if she wins the title. No need to add doubles matches into the mix.

Prayed through the nights
felt so alone
suffered from alienation
carried the weight on my own
Had to be strong
so I believed
and now I know I've succeeded
in finding the place I conceived

Re: Will Venus and Serena withdraw from Doubles

I have a feeling they might still continue to play doubles.

Re: Will Venus and Serena withdraw from Doubles

The only possibility that they would play this doubles match was for both of them to be beaten in singles today!!

Re: Will Venus and Serena withdraw from Doubles

It was announced on the BBC.
I'm pretty sure they have. Serena knows she would just make her left wrist/thumb worse.

Not surprising considering Serena's injuries. It's best for her to not make them worse.
