So should Serena have just withdrawn from the YEC?

Serena made a comment that she has not felt this kind of pain since her knee surgery. Given that she's wrapped up like a mummy, should she just have withdrew from the YEC and given it to someone who could've played at 100%. Man, I tell you..this injury stuff sucks.

I don't know what to say...maybe she should have just rested her body and stayed home.

It doesn't mean she's not fit, she's had problems with that knee since 2003.

I say she really needs to do whatever to strengthen that knee. She's got some major defending to do at the Australian Open. She will take quite a tumble if she doesn't do well in Melbourne.

She's showing her commitment by turning up here. There's a difference between being unfit and being injured.

Re: So should Serena have just withdrawn from the YEC?

well at least she tried. I think it would be disappointing not to try. If she's in that much pain why is she still playing? I don't understand that. She should just retire and let Marion play instead for the next few matches. A Marion/Henin rematch would be exciting as well.

i don't get why people say she's not fit...on the men's tour rafa is one of the fittest guys on tour but yet has bad knee problems coming down the stretch of the past 2 seasons
