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)
