Venus, Lindsay withdraw from SoCal tournament

CARSON, Calif.—Venus Williams and Lindsay Davenport withdrew Friday from next week's East West Bank Classic, with both citing right knee injuries.

Williams hasn't played a tournament since defeating her younger sister Serena to win her fifth Wimbledon title earlier this month.

"I have been receiving treatment for tendinitis in my right knee over the last several days and my medical advisers have encouraged me to allow myself an additional week to completely recover," she said in a statement.

Williams said she still plans to play the Rogers Cup in Montreal, the Beijing Olympics and the U.S. Open this summer.

Davenport's nagging right knee injury caused her to withdraw from a tournament for the fourth time in seven weeks. She is on the U.S. Olympic tennis team.

"I always look forward to the opportunity to play so close to home, but unfortunately my knee has not completely healed at this point," she said in a statement.

Meng Yuan of China moved into Williams' spot in the draw, while Stephanie Dubois of Canada took Davenport's place. Serena Williams is scheduled to play in the $600,000 Carson tournament that begins Monday.

its official
atleast shes playing two tournaments still this summer with a break in betwwen (WTT )

I just hope she's ready for the Olympics, the main reason of her comeback.

Wow, Serena may withdraw now too, and it's scary that they all will withdraw because of a knee injury

Good for Venus & Lindsay.

No need to play injured. Best to rest
and get things checked and in order.

Therefore, why still continue to be all surprised
