Serena usually does, when she's healthy. Venus usually doesn't play this tournament, IIRC.

Re: Do yout think the Williamses will play in Carson?

I don't know.

I got a call from one of Home Depot Center event sales reps, trying to get me to commit to tickets. My response was, "I wait to make sure the Sisters are showing up FOR SURE!" They said, "...We understand," then said they'd call back the first day of the tournament.

so..., no one knows for sure.

JA ME KA IS THE GOAT!!!

Re: Do yout think the Williamses will play in Carson?

I think Serena will definitely be there. Venus doesn't enter this event consistently, I believe the last time was in 04 where she lost to Davenport in the semis (sad match, she was up 5-0 and the wrist failed ). But apparently they're supposed to play doubles here in prep for the Olympics, so I say they will!

Venus is more interested in tier 3 events

And winning GS's!

Venus keeps her commitments unless she is injured,
just as she did last year. Only withdrew from one
tournament, which came after Wimbledon, Fed Cup,
WTT & SD.

Venus after tonight will have like 12 or 13 days
to rest and recharge after her last WTT stop.

So, IMO, Venus will be there.

Re: Do yout think the Williamses will play in Carson?

I'd be surprised if Serena at least played both events. She really looked tired in Team Tennis so I think it will be wait and see.

Not likely.
On the real, Marat Safin & Feliciano Lopez better show up at the Countrywide Classic!

Re: Do yout think the Williamses will play in Carson?

what is Carson? is that a new name for something?

The One and Only Queen


Most tennis players are girls, because they act like girls, they play like girls, and they have child-like attitudes like girls. Venus, on the other hand, does the exact opposite. She is in control of her emotions. She's graceful, gracious, strong, and fierce. She controls her own destiny. She has a business and a degree. She won't be left with just tennis memories once she calls it a day on the court.


Most tennis females are girls. Venus is a WOMAN.
