Why doesn't Serena announce her withdrawal from Antwerp?

She's no longer on the not-so-secret-but-secret-nonetheless WTA entry list.
People can't blame the WTA if she withdraws late from tournaments; to the best of my knowledge she still has freedom of speech and an Internet connection. What are you waiting, Serena?

I think she's just following her long standing protocol. She'll withdraw on friday.

Re: Why doesn't Serena announce her withdrawal from Antwerp?

Then it's not her fault. She's withdrawn from the tournament, now it's there turn to tell the media. She's done her part, lay the hell off. It's now the tournaments job to relay the information. Idiot.

Chill out. This isn't a personal attack, so don't so defensive when somebody makes a statement about a woman who doesn't even know you exist. Idiot.

Re: Why doesn't Serena announce her withdrawal from Antwerp?

From: http://www.sport.be/proximusdiamondgames/2008/nl/

So far, only in Dutch: Serena out because of surgery.

Medische ingreep houdt Serena uit Antwerpen
Serena Williams moet omwille van een dringende medische ingreep noodgedwongen forfait geven voor de zevende editie van de Proximus Diamond Games Antwerp. Na het forfait van Serena staan er momenteel nog zeven speelsters uit de top 20 op de affiche van de Proximus Diamond Games Antwerp.
Op dit ogenblik wordt er nog onderhandeld met Elena Dementieva en Nadia Petrova, die in aanmerking zouden kunnen komen voor de resterende wild card.

Deze week zei Serena Williams ook al af voor het tornooi in Parijs. Ze gaf aan dat ze een gebitoperatie moet ondergaan.

C'mon Belgians

Serena Williams pulls out of Paris Open
Fri Feb 1, 2008 3:56pm EST

PARIS (Reuters) - American Serena Williams has pulled out of the Paris Open women's tennis tournament starting on Monday because she needs dental surgery, organizers said on Friday.

The former world number one, who won the event in 2003, will be replaced as the second seed in the draw by Slovakia's Daniela Hantuchova.

They (the tournament) typically won't announce withdrawls until the very last minute as to not impede ticket sales.

Life is short...enjoy it while you can.

Your post is a personal attack.

It doesn't matter if "she knows I exist", it's annoying that all people do is bash on "a woman who doesn't even know they exist" and waste their lives doing so. Now that is laughable.

Well, it took all of three posts for that to happen.

Now, how long before the thread is closed?
