Jesus Cristos. She's criticized for not playing, and now criticized for the certain tournaments she plays. As if she's the only top player to have ever played smaller tournaments.

Re: Venus's stealing the low ranked less money younger tournements

I don't think Venus gives a damn about it. So do the girls.

Besides, they will have at least a chance to face a top WTA player - experience is more valuable than $$$.

Re: Venus's stealing the low ranked less money younger tournements

In my opinion, it's good practice for the girls in these tournaments. If you sign up for a field just to grab some easy points, hoping you don't run into any really good players, then you won't ever get among the game's elite. If Venus Williams is in the field, you know that's a challenge.

Re: Venus's stealing the low ranked less money younger tournements

Venus isn't stealing anything, my friend. The promoters of these smaller tournaments all offered her a six-figure appearance fee, and she accepted. Do you really think she would fly halfway around the world for the $25,840 winner's share?

The title of this thread makes no sense whatsoever

If lower ranked players don't want to play Venus, they can play another low tier tournament like Tashkent I'm sure if you asked a player like Alicia Molik, she'd be glad she had another chance to play Venus. It looks like playing a Williams sister normally helps inspire her to raise her level. Also, it gives lesser known opponents much more attention than had Venus not shown up. I think that's a good thing.

Re: Venus's stealing the low ranked less money younger tournements

I'm sure a lot of the lower ranked players would be kind of annoyed, but at the same time it gives them an opportunity to play a top player. Caroline Wozniacki might have well won her first title in Tokyo, but at the same time she played well against Venus and that should fare her better than winning a tournament playing people ranked lower or only slightly higher than her.
