Re: So whats a Wimbledon Champ doing playing a Tier IV ??

Venus is at a point in her career where I doubt she cares about what size the tournament is. I think she just wants to travel the world playing places she hasn't been or enjoys.

I know Venus really liked Seoul when she played Sharapova at that exhibition in 2005.

Walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone

Venus likes to travel to different places in the world instead of going to the same places all the time

Wasn't she committed to Seoul before she won Wimbledon?

Re: So whats a Wimbledon Champ doing playing a Tier IV ??

i dont know..
i just think that she wants to get more of her confidence back,
probably she wants relaxed matches..
where she doesnt have to fight as hard as times...

and she might have really liked the surface there...
she did beat sharapova there...

Seoul is at the same time as Lux...

Wimbledon winner...
playing tier III n tier IV n a tier I in the fall
.. would be cool...

Why? It's called $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Same reason Aggasi, Seles, and many others play these. Appearance fees. She could probably lose in the first round and make more than the tournament's published purse.

Re: So whats a Wimbledon Champ doing playing a Tier IV ??

get over it. She will play where she wants, and despite what you may think or hope, she doesn't really care what you think

"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."

Wasn't Venus also supposed to play a tier IV after the US Open in 2005? She pulled out of that one.

That lefts me wondering if Venus didn't play LA and Toronto in order not to get to the top 10 and make herself unavailable to play Seoul

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams
