Question Why the hell did Venus enter Acapulco???

No logic whatsoever here!!!
She is in Dubai, which is played on hard court and she entered Acapulco which is ON CLAY when she knows she's has an important HARD court month ahead!!!

I think she did this so she has an excuse to miss Indian Wells.

Venus Williams Li Na Petra Kvitova

She doesn't like to build momentum!

It'll be interesting to see how she does on clay!

If she gets a Wednesday start I don't see a huge problem with it If she flies on Sunday and arrives there in the evening, she should be fine by Wednesday!

Rest in Peace Bally!

Re: Why the hell did Venus enter Acapulco???

She is crazzzzy, but I like that she can practise clay - perhaps she wants to avoid an AO repeat at RG by getting some early stress free practise in so she can redeem her poor record in Paris

On clay? What a nightmare match up.

Maybe she wants to get some practice in while she misses Indian wells or something?

Re: Why the hell did Venus enter Acapulco???

she has stated many times that she loves to go to different places and that she takes this opportunities to visit new countries. (add that to + the cash that she is getting for playing there and voilá)

Uh.. Hello she already entered Acapulco before she lost 2r! Geez. I mean I'm sure she wants to practice more on Clay in competition but it's not because she's getting ready to not repeat an early loss.

Re: Why the hell did Venus enter Acapulco???

I dont get why players enter strange surfaces out of their season.

It is an odd choice

$$$ + getting to go to a new place, Acapulco. I don't think she has ever played in Mexico before so she wants to.
