Serena but no Venus for Fed Cup Final

I'm surprised! http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/ten...ory?id=4600369

It will always be Arantxa, hall of famer! and martina hingis and kim clijsters - amazing legends
ana ivanovic and the italian girls, especially pennetta (forza azzurre! RG CHAMP FRANCESCA AND FINALIST SARA!)
aga, vika, sam, na in the next tier

Re: Serena but no Venus for Fed Cup Final

Venus needs rest anyway (Serena too BTW)
But playing one more week on clay won't do any good to Venus' current play

Re: Serena but no Venus for Fed Cup Final

Venus but i'm sure she has a valid reason for not playing after her results these last few months, taking a rest seems to be the right thing to do
(and before anyone says "yeah she doesn't want to lose to pennetta again" just remember acapulco final )

Why are you assuming it was Venus' choice not to be on the team? The way she's been playing lately, I wouldn't be surprised if Mary Joe Fernandez just didn't pick her.

Re: Serena but no Venus for Fed Cup Final

I understand, playing Fed Cup earns points now. Serena might need few.. Of course, should she win WTF , she'll withdraw..

"..just knowing that as long as i choose life, there is hope."

I am fully shocked that Serena is playing two years before she has to.

Re: Serena but no Venus for Fed Cup Final

Yeah, i think my surprise is that there would be one without the other, especially since Venus has at least defeated Pennetta on clay this year where Schiavone beat Serena... PLUS doubles would be a lock with the two of them... I wonder if Serena will play with Liezel should it come down to the 5th rubber?

It will always be Arantxa, hall of famer! and martina hingis and kim clijsters - amazing legends
ana ivanovic and the italian girls, especially pennetta (forza azzurre! RG CHAMP FRANCESCA AND FINALIST SARA!)
aga, vika, sam, na in the next tier

And chose Melanie who is sick and has the same record post USO as Venus?

Re: Serena but no Venus for Fed Cup Final

Serena/Huber must be the most random doubles partnership ever

But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Re: Serena but no Venus for Fed Cup Final

Serena needs to win both singles rubbers for us to have a chance because Alexa is in bad form and Mel is sick and in bad form.
