Where are the "promotional activities" that the Williams Sisters are supposed to do??

Does anyone know anything about it?? They must be doing it somewhere within a 125 mile radius from Indian Wells!
No one talked about it, IF they´re doing any! They give a shit about Indian Wells and Larry´s roadmap!
They can do whatever they want, since they´re the most talented players playing right now!

I dont know

Is there not a McDonalds within that 125 mile radius? Usually they go help out serving burgers and stuff, or they did when McDonalds paid them

There's probably a whole hospital full of sick children somewhere nearby that they can visit.

Or maybe they're at Palm Springs promoting IW to the people in the spa.

the tour needs to stand firm if it's gonna introduce such policies, otherwise these rules are gonna be useless, and new ones will be constantly added to accommodate the sisters.

Serena is promoting her clothing line Aneres while Venus is promoting Eleven and her design company.

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!
SERENA PRINCESS OF POWER

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
Françoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.

I don't think the rules were properly instituted in the first place.
Maybe they need to revamp their rules.

Regardless, I'm glad Serena is doing what is best for her. If it means she has to promote an event then she will. I think she and Venus are capable of deciding what is best for them.

Larry Scott made a mockery of his own system when he added that "promotional" loophole. Venus and Serena never publicly stated that they would fight any disciplinary action taken against them for skipping Indian Wells, so Scott could have just left things the way they were.

"He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord." -- Proverbs 18:22

"Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard." -- Herb Brooks

"A man who views the world the same at 50 as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life." -- Muhammad Ali
