Do you think the Williams will play anymore tournaments this year?

Serena has a lot of points to defend. And Venus needs to stay away from those damn tier 3 events.

They'll both be in Stuttgart.

Do you think Venus likes to see Serena at # 1 and herself at # 8? She'll play and try to earn some points. And Serena, for obvious reasons, will want to end the year at # 1.

and Venus Stuttgart and hopefully the Yec

Serena has 411 points to defend, she will play one or two events...ranking isnt their priority...majors is

I actually hope they dont burn themselves out too much before YEC

Re: Do you think the Williams will play anymore tournaments this year?

After many years Serena will have one "full" season behind her which means in her case playing all biggest WTA events (except IW of course) and that for sure must include YEC championship which is playing at Rebound Ace Outdoors - according to Serena AO results between 2003-2007 it's her probably best surface. Also, i except of her to playing one Europian Indoor tournament like preparation for YEC b/c two months without competetive match is not good preparation.

Talking about Venus, i think she already started to prepare herself for Wimbledon 2009, so she maybe will played some WTA tournament before end of season... maybe not... but probably nothing serious. But next season i expect of her except Wimbledon and US Open to play seriously Beijing mandatory (same surface like US Open) and maybe even to try to doing something with Australian Opet b/c i think new surface more suits to her than rebound ace... atleast she is less afraid about injuries.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

They're both entered for Stuttgart and Moscow, and in addition, Venus for Zurich. Hope they stick to those schedules.

Venus and Serena.....2012 Grand Slam Champions!
The Greatest Ever Grand Slam Team, Does It Again!!!!

And It's Not Over Yet...Just Wait....Wait.
