If she really cited "other plans" that's ridiculous - if she had other plans she shouldn't have committed to the tournament.

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

Acording to Irina Spirlea, she's "the f#^king Venus Williams."

Maybe Venus decided to take another vacation during this week. Hmm, Serena is playing this event and they have played 4 times this year already and could play again in LA so maybe they need some more break from each other.

We all knew a few top players would pull out. That field at Zurich is strong enough as it is.

Everything you do continues long after you've gone

@w_f

Venus has never played a heavy schedule in the fall, has she? (obvously last year was a special, case - but even before that...)

some of you people really need to get a grip!!! You will jump at any bait to be overly critical of the Sisters...Venus doesn't need the points or the money...she says she needs rest...whats the big deal???they aren't gonna cancel the tournament cause Venus pulled out...ya'll will just have to find someone else to root against......

BTW Anton...Venus is beautiful to many people...intelligent by any standards...and the most incredible athlete in wta history...you lobbed this egg just to incite haters to take shots at Venus...i am shocked at how many morons were willing to oblige you...get a life!!!

I did not "lobbed this egg." If they can have a "is venus gay?" thread then we can have a "is venus wonderful, etc?" the world is full of negativity so why not add a little sunlight into this day?

And to beecool, the Linz website says serena is playing that event too so i seriously doubt serena will play 7 indoor events. she will be next on the withdraw line.
