Re: How come Venus never plays a warm-up tournament before Australian Open?
These are tough economic times. I say, play Hong Kong, win, and collect the cash. Venus is a pro and has been playing in Australia for years. If she is match fit from Hong Kong, she should be able to get adjusted to the surface when she arrives. She has her own routine for prepping for slams
When you believe, somehow you will. You will, when you believe.
Your mind will take you far. The rest is just pure heart. Youíll find your fate is all your own creation.
Thereís so much strength in all of us, every woman, child, and man.
Itís the moment that you think you canít - youíll discover that you CAN.
